Storyline

In a distant land, peace was maintained for thousands of years by a fearful dragon clan who could transform into powerful monsters. One day they discovered a goddess who could fulfill their every wish. Greed split the clan into Dark and Light Dragons, each battling the other to win her magic. One member of the Light Dragons, along with seven of his companions, emerged to keep the opposing forces from destroying their world. Using six magical keys, they sealed the goddess into another realm. Centuries have passed. The Dark Dragons are destroying the land in search of the keys. When they find the keys, they will once again release the magic goddess. Light Dragon... the time has come to draw your sword and fight for the future of your people.

More than a game...

I am not an easy judge to please, but Breath of Fire has qualities that have been forgotten in the world of gaming. A story so complex and engaging, it has you hooked from the moment you turn on the console. In the years to follow its release, people forgot about the Super Nintendo, and games on N64 and Playstation would dominate the market, but among my decently extensive game collection, Breath of Fire sticks out as a gem of storytelling genius. For the gamer interested in beautifully crafted stories of adventure, it is my opinion that this game is comparable to Final Fantasy VII! An easy favorite that is deserving of more praise than it has been given!
