    FFT is still my all time favorite tactics game. I find it amazing that the newer games still haven't topped it for me.

    This is one of those older PS games that still amazes me simply because no one has yet created a tactics game I find more interesting. It has story, graphics, job class system and gameplay all one it's side. Even it's se... Read Full Review
