Storyline

A corrupt company, by the name of ShinRa is draining the energy out of the (nameless) planet and conducting expiriments on living things. Enviromental and social callamities, such as the pollution of the air and seas, overpopulation, high drug rate and treating women like objects. A mercenary and a rough and tough organization by the name of Avalanche must put an end to ShinRa, but a couple of ShinRa victims might be causing a bigger threat. One of the ShinRa victims is an alien that crash-landed on the planet and killed an ancient race. The other ShinRa victim is a man in a trench coat that wants to rule the world and summon the doomsday meteorite. Written by Jenova Synthesis <mayu_roxx@hotmail.com>

Aargh! My house is on fire!
7 November 2000 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

I didn't buy this game when it came out in Britain, but my friend did. And I'll tell you what, not a day went by when I wasn't jealous. It had rocktastic (sorry) MIDI music, brilliant turn-based battle sequences, and from what I could see, a darn good plot. Well, time wandered by, and eventually he let me borrow the game. And i can safely say I wasn't disappointed. A cracking plot, a novel format (for this country at least) and mighty good characters. you'll get all these hardcore fans saying "it's not the best in the series." But I haven't played the others, so I don't care. A brilliant game in it's own right, and still rollocking good fun all these years later. Huzzah!
