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.

The best in the series?
26 January 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

FF5 is full of outstanding, unforgettable moments: the death of Galuf, the terrifying and awesome resurrection of Exdeath in the final battle, and the most complete and satisfying end sequence I have ever seen in a game. The job system is another superb aspect. More sophisticated than FF4, less dull subplots than FF6, FF5 gets my vote as the best in the series.
