    This is and always will be, my favorite game of all time. My parents wouldn't buy this one for me when it first came out and my birthday was so far away, so I rented this one from Blockbuster. In that weekend, I was ab... Read Full Review

    What an exciting game to play.

    When I played Final Fantasy III it was a huge enjoyment for me; so much so that I made a guide for it when I had the time back then. I loved replaying it and going over my saves to glean the information for the guide. I ... Read Full Review

    I think that Final Fantasy III/VI emulates perfection in RPG gaming!!!!

    Final Fantasy III first emerged in the days of the SNES. It is an rpg by square which in my opinion is their best work!!! Well, anyways.....the story is about Terra and how she was sorta brainwashed so she lost her memor... Read Full Review

    One of the best in the series, but THE best?

    I started playing RPG’s with the Final Fantasy series. It started with VII and VIII, but when they stopped making them for the PC (I didn’t have a PlayStation back then) I started to look for older titles. That’s how I l... Read Full Review

    Set the standard for todays RPGs.

    Final Fantasy III is arguably the best RPG of the SNES/Genesis generation (the other to be argued over is Chrono Trigger). It built upon Final Fantasy II (which actually set most of the standards in RPGs we see today) b... Read Full Review

    An amazing adventure through with incredibly memorable characters, villains, and story. What more could you want?

    In a generation where amazing games came out literally everyday, Final Fantasy VI stands strongly with them. The game is centered around Terra Branford, a woman who knows nothing of her past and is working for the evil E... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy VII's equal in the 2D world.

    Square likes to mess up on numbers when sending their Final Fantasy titles out of Japan in the 2D era of Final Fantasy. Like I'm sure you all know, the real Final Fantasy III came out for the NES in 1989 (or was it 1990?... Read Full Review

    The single best gaming experience I've ever had.

    I consider Final Fantasy III (which I'll refer to as Final Fantasy VI for the remainder of this review) the single greatest game of all time. Pardon me if that statement sounds fanboyish, and I apologize if that is the ... Read Full Review
