Final Fantasy III in the USA, not quite as good as the second though. Final Fantasy III would have done much better as just the story itself. The story was fantastic, with the music to back it up, but the gameplay wasn't all that much fun. It almost seemed as if you were just playing to find out what happened next. As with Final Fantasy II, playing was half the fun and enjoyment. An excellent cast of characters backed up the story well. Probably one of the first RPG's to truly focus on the characters inner selves and the internal conflicts they faced. As with Terra, she fought to better understand herself and remember her past, a constant swirl of confusion of the feelings inside her. Celes, a general turned traitor to the Empire, is constantly fighting to show others that they can trust her. Sir Cyan, after losing his family, country, as well as his entire world to the Empire, is fighting the burning hatred inside of him. As for Shadow, Sabin, Edgar, Mog, Locke, Relm, Umaro, Gogo, Strago, Setzer, and Gau, they all face their own problems as well. Yet all of them share the fact that they have something against the empire and a desire to stand up to it. As for Kefka, the frustration of putting up with someone so evil continues to build throughout the game, especially considering what he did to General Leo.
Certainly stirs emotions at many parts and a true tail of adventure. Worth playing.
