The closest the series has to an average RPG. Ironically it's one of the best entries because of it.

-> Esta bien y tiene buenos personajes.
-> Pero Cain no es uno de ellos.
-> Cuanto consigues ballena el juego empeora narrativa y jugablemente.
-> Falsas muertes restan.
-> Rubicante es el mejor antagonista.

For me the hardest one until 1996. Amazing game with a sad and tragic story. A story of redemption btw. Enjoy!

It's not the first Final Fantasy with a real, fully fledged story setting with unique characters (FF2 did it first), but it is the first one that uses cinematic and theatrical ways to tell its story in a way that hooks you. It is where Square Enix steered away from the classic D&D'esque dungeon crawler, to dive deeper into real story telling.
For a lot of people, this is where they start the series, and it is perfectly fine to do so and ignore the previous classics in my opinion, as they weren't very substantial.
Although, please play it on the SNES or the NDS 3D remake. The loading times on the Playstation are awful.

Whoever put those lil gooey guys that only die via environmental spells should do a flip off the empire state building but good game either way
