Crazy Credits

In addition to the two main endings, of which there are two versions, depending on whether you attacked Lavos with the Epoch or not, there are also ten additional endings, most of them light and goofy, that can be accessed by the bucket in the End of Time or Lucca's Telepod, at various points during the game. However, since Lavos is incredibly hard, you should only attempt this with the New Game+ option, after you have beaten the game. See more »

It is the best game anyone could ever hope to play in a single lifetime
30 September 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Play it if you haven't. If you haven't played then you are missing the single best game ever made. After all, a dream-team game between the Dragon Warrior(Quest) people and the Final Fantasy people would have to hold the title of "BEST GAME EVER CREATED".
