Storyline

Politics, magic, technology and pure human emotion fuel a quest for answers in this installment of the wildly popular Final Fantasy series. The hero of the story is Squall Leonhart, a somewhat troubled teen who is a student at the military academy known as Balamb Garden. As the game starts, the antisocial and introverted Squall is preparing to take the final steps to becoming a member of Garden's elite mercenary force called SeeD. During the required field exam, Squall's group (including his hated rival, the brash and arrogant Seifer Almasy) uncovers the beginnings of a plot by the nation of Galbadia, a global superpower with a tyrannical ruler. Squall and his comrades, Selphie Tilmitt and Zell Dincht, are SeeDs less than a day before being assigned to a mission in the Galbadian-occupied country of Timber. It is there that Squall meets Rinoa Heartilly, the young and passionate leader of a rebel faction. It is soon discovered that Galbadian President-for-Life Vinzer Deling has allied ...

Crazy Credits

During the end first half of the end credits we see a few minutes of "handheld video camera footage" taken during a party after the team's victory over the sorceress. At the end, just before the camera's battery runs out we see Riona outside pointing towards the sky. After the credits are done there is an additional scene. See more »

Alternate Versions

Because it is illegal to posses Nunchaku in the UK, it is also illegal to have them shown in movies and on television shows. For this reason, Selphie's weapon of choice has been reclassified in the UK version as "Sticks of Death". See more »

Swell! 10/10!!
31 August 2005 | by punk_r0ck_princessSee all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best game ever to have been made, and I'm positive that no new games ever made will ever match this masterpiece! Definitely my favourite game.

So this was the first Final Fantasy game that i completed and could be why i like it the best, but nah... i love this game so damn much because it has everything any awesome game should have; interesting, unique, diverse characters and square enix have done such a great job here that when you play they don't seem like characters, just regular people... that happen to be in a video game- you know what i mean! Then there's the breath taking scenery, so what if the map screen doesn't look a* anymore, it gives the game character, the musical score... what can i say, for anyone who doesn't appreciate instrumentals and romantic tunes and songs, play this game and you will come out a changed person! all the music fits beautifully. i <3 nobuo uematsu! the weapons and gf's, still my fave limit breaks (lion heart, swoooooon) and the weapons are more fun than the other games! And now the important part... the plot! and needless to say this game holds the best storyline to ever grace any game console. i wont go into depth about it as i'd be typing forever and there's so many sub plots and little things you notice and find out. *spolier* eyes on me (obviously) being about laguna, it showed they had really paid tonnes of attention to all the other characters and not just Rinoa and Squall who could be considered the 'main' characters. This game brings original creative ideas, emotional lines/ideas/movie clips,great art work and graphics, wonderful characters, a plot to die for, breath taking musical score,humour and much more and is an essential for any rpg fan! Be warned though, once you've completed the game once you'll be coming back for me, its been 6 years now and I'm still madly in love with this game. Tip;complete everything in the entire game, and read everything, it will make the game even better and you'll feel dead satisfied! Happy Gaming!
