+Great combat system for its time
+Customizable characters both in fighting style and name
+Auto Targeting system implemented which the first two games did not have
+Great design for sprites and enemies
+Great sound effects which become a trademark feature in later installations
+Incredible OST created by one of the best in the industry
+Lengthy adventure which will require a bit back tracking, leveling up and exploration
-Storyline not as well developed as its predecessor
-Main characters with a lack of story or background
-Lack of Auto-Targeting with Magic
-Some of the classes/jobs are useless and serve little to no purpose.
-Lack of a Map feature during the Overworld.
-Beginning of game starts off slow and usually requires some grinding to get anywhere.
-Battle maps usually have small amount to no detail at all.
-There's a point in the game where you can breeze through but when you get near end game if you didn't grind, you'll be severely under leveled.
-A lot of grinding is necessary for some mid tier parts of the game and at the end game.
