A vagrant sense of tedium

Summary:


Not their finest hour.
Vagrant Story is a game made by Square back when they were really on a roll with great games. Chrono Trigger, Brave Fencer Musachi, Parasite Eve, Xenogears and the Final Fantasy games ranged from pretty good to pretty damn good and basically told everyone that they need to up their game in order to survive... basically, the PS1 era was Square's finest moment. But not everything they've done was great, and this was one of them. Vagrant Story wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it's pretty easy to tell that this wasn't on par with a lot of other games they'...

SUPERB GAME!!!

The good:

Oh this is a toughy, not sure if i can fit everything in here, guess i could put it simply and say EVERYTHING!!!!

The bad:

Is it possible? Maybe the bad is you lose teleport on your second time through and have to get it again?

Summary:

This game is AWESOME!!! the best game i've ever played, and i've played FF7, but FF Tactics is my second favorite game, and of course Vagrant Story is on the top of the list. But this game holds a large list of spells, may not be that strong first time through, but once you get your intelligence up some they're awesome. And you can also forge TONS of weapons. The battle system is awesome as well, with a sphere that stretches to a different amount depending on the range of your weapon, then you can target a certain body part of the opponent, like legs, Left Arm, Right Arm, Body, and Head.

Perfection.

The good:

Everything.

The bad:

erm...nothing I can think of.

Summary:

Ok, Squaresoft is known for its RPGs like the Final Fantasy series, but Vagrant Story is nothing like these games - in fact it's not even an RPG, but closer in spirit to an action/adventure game. You only control one character, a riskbreaker called Ashley Riot, throughout the whole game and right from the very start he is embroiled in religious and political intrigue, centred around who actually killed an important Duke. He goes off to an ancient town called Leá Monde to search for answers and this is basically where you take up the role of Ashley.

This game has a complex battle and weapon s...

Diffent kind of RPG

The good:

Original, but very good, battles are great! Name your weapons as well, and make new ones!

The bad:

A tad bit hard, not many saving points and no warning for a boss, and that god damned RISK!

Summary:

A very good RPG from Squaresoft, as it is original, and no more random battles, you choose if you go into battle or not, you name your weapons, you make them, and depending on what you use you weapon on, it changes it's stats. Get it, it's great!

The Best RPG

The good:

Everything: the graphics, controls, music, story, characters , and environment are perfect

The bad:

I really have to write something here??? Well, it may have not too much importance, but each save takes 3!!!! memory blocks .

Summary:

Just the best RPG game for PSX. Nothing more to say.

Wow this is Great

The good:

This is Just great every aspect of the game is great, the increace in difficulty is something Square has been lacking in its other games and the weapons creation system is just amazing.

The bad:

Uh theres supposed to be a bad side to this, Get Real!

Summary:

Seriously, this is my second favourite game of all time, surpased only by Chrono Trigger which I have had since it was first realease in 95'. Square has reached a true marvel and compare to recent FF games this is refreshing. I mean FFVIII was the biggest piece of crap I have ever seen by Square it was graphically stunning but so rediculously easy and the fact the story just kind of fell apart after disk 2, The only thing I liked about this game was the Graphics which were the only thing worked on. But anyway enough Ranting on about how much FFVIII Disgusted me and I just wish to repeat VS ...
