Overall, a pretty mediocre game. It's VERY easy to beat and the characters are pretty barebones in terms of depth. The scenario is sort of epic, but the path the narrative takes is really pretty shallow, especially when you compare it to games like FF6 which came out the same year. And, GOOD GOD, were there FAR too many random battles, which is a big "no-no" when it comes to keeping up pacing and fun. A meandering, very simple start to a B-level JRPG series.
