Bartz, a nomad, rescues a woman and an old man from two creatures at the site of a meteoroid crash. Strangely enough, the crash of the meteor coincides with the sudden ceasing of all wind and breeze on Earth. Bartz soon learns that the old man is Galuf, a traveler from another world, and the woman is Reina, a princess whose father disappeared after going to check on the condition of the Wind Crystal, one of four crystaline objects that keeps the elements of Earth intact. Soon meeting up with Faris, a female pirate, the group goes on a journey through this world and the next to stop the resurrection of Exdeath, a black warlock that Galuf helped seal away decades ago, and Gilgamesh, his otherworldly henchman who has an agenda of his own.

Great underrated game
16 March 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Many people thought this game was boring slow and doesn't go anywhere.

I for one thought otherwise. The use of job systems to improve your status works great. The story is fast paced and has surprising and interesting moments and the characters don't usually get into all the self pity, back story stuff (Which I don't mind). Although of course (being a final fantasy) they sometimes do.

The story starts out with Bartz, a world drifter going wherever the road takes him with his chocobo friend he named Boko. A meteor crash lands on the nearby plain and he goes to investigate. He saves a girl named Reina and an old man named Galuf from a couple of goblins. After they go their separate ways but it is not long before Bartz must save them from a nearby earthquake. They all team up and come across a new teammate Faris the pirate after they to steal "his" ship. They all head off to investigate whats going on at the wind shrine and Reina's father who just recently flew there himself. However upon reaching the wind crystal it chooses them to be the four crystal warriors. upon giving them various abilities of former warriors the adventure begins.
