Argh.

Good quality though, yes? Nice work?

oh i didnt know that the heal spell was regen and not just single shot...

and i agree with the spells being usefull but most enemies you encounter are too weak to really have use of them and they wont work on bosses

and on top of that he dies super fast...

3 felt so unrewarding.
And I was only around the beginning.
Phooey.

Also, I just picked up a copy of IV. Had an opportunity to go to the store.
Guess I'll play this 'til I go to work.

I played this on the Play station. I sucked.

~~~~~SPOILERISH~~~~~

I became the paladin and all, but one i got back to my old castle i could never fight the duke/chancellor who turned into a demon. He would ALWAYS destroy me....
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

(Seeing how this is the most popular FF thread atm)

Whats the deal? Does time go by in each game? I mean, how come 13 is all about guns and future when 9 is still in airships and 1 is still swords and magic. Is there an actual reason to it? Are all the games connected or seperate? If they are all seperate why keep the name like its a sequel? Can they not stick to one thing and have to jump around generations in each game? Jeez FF confuses me.

They're all unrelated, simple as that. :)

Each has a different story and whatnot. Some keep the same basic principles of combat. Some have the same monsters. Almost all have Cid being a leader of airships.

But all are unrelated. Think of it all as alternate universes.

I just bought the English version of this game. I had bought the Japanese version last year for someone, but didn't get a chance to play it.

I'm enjoying it. Edward just joined the brawl... erm... party. Though I seem to have lost that Sage.

They're not all unrelated. Have you all have purged your memory of X-2? Not to mention Tactics Advance, 12, Revenant Wings and Tactics Advance 2, or the four Crystal Chronicles games.
Not a winner anymore.

I'm at the final part of the game now, and have pretty much loved it.  It's probably too similar to the original version though, I didn't expect much to be changed, but I knew how to do, and get pretty much everything, and with the treasure appearing on the bottom map now, it makes it even easier to find a lot of the hidden equipment. 

My biggest issue is the augment system though..  being able to use the abilities of characters who leave your team is great, but you can only use new game plus mode, three times, and you need all of those play throughs to make your characters perfect, there's no room for error.  Unless you know exactly when you should use them, and on who, there's no chance you're going to get it right.  If you've played through the game before, I'd recommend just looking at GameFaqs for augment guide, but if you haven't, then it's going to give you spoilers, so you're pretty much stuck.   :-\   Seems like a terrible idea.

I wouldn't be put off because of III though, this game actually has a decent amount of save points and helpful items, and the story and characters are far more fleshed out.  It was really the first "true" Final Fantasy game.

You call it "True" because you're comparing it to the Sony games.

But what makes something "true"? It having similar features as the new ones? I consider it to be true when it is like the old games.

Or do you just say something is "true" whenever it is like the games you prefered?

I guess it was the first "good" Final Fantasy game... but to be honest I haven't played II. People have told me that it is the worst one though.
