This is one of the classic RPGs for the Playstation. Fascinating character development and an intricate, compelling storyline make for a really well-constructed game. The graphics are somewhat lacking, but considering this was one of the early PSX games, they're a huge leap compared to previous systems like the SNES. The materia system is detailed but easy to master, although it can become a bit tedious to adjust the combinations every time you receive a new one. Overall, definitely worth playing for any RPG fan.
