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.

Quite possibly the worst game in the series
5 January 2001 | by (Knoxville TN) – See all my reviews

Even the worst final fantasy game is still pretty fun. But this game is still mediocre. It had a lot of hype built up because it wasn't released in the US for several years . But the game it self really isn't that good. The story-line is a loosely strung series of events that eventually involve a generic evil guy in a helmet named exdeath. At one point Butz says "you won't get away with this" and exdeath says "And just what do you think It is that I'm trying to get away with." Indeed Butz doesn't know, and neither did I, nor did I particularly care up to that point. However when he answers that question the game turns around for the better. The story is given a point and there are plenty of secrets to discover. Too bad there is only a little bit more of the game left. The job system is fun but not enough so to carry the game by itself. The game is still decent, but is hardly worthy of the rest of the series. I spent most of the game waiting for something to happen. When it finally did I had to wonder if it was worth the effort.
