Final Fantasy VI AdvanceI Advance 

 

Final Fantasy VI Advance is actually Final Fantasy III from the SNES (Super Nintendo). Before Squaresoft, and Enix merged Squaresoft did not release all of the Final Fantasy games in America, thus the numbering got off. This RPG (role playing game) is considered one of the classics by many. For those unfamiliar with what a role playing game is - it is a longer video game that tells a story. The player tries to save the fantasy world from a great evil. There are plenty of interesting characters as well as fantasy monsters. Players level up by fighting monsters, and getting stronger. Magic has returned to the land in the form of Espers, and the main player is a mysterious woman who was enslaved to evil, but freed to fight for the side of light. Rebels are fighting against this evil empire. Typical old school role playing action along with a few minor upgrades for the hardcore gamer.

Graphically Final Fantasy VI Advance is certainly showing its age. Bear in mind back in the day of the Super Nintendo (SNES) the graphics in this game were pretty nice. The lack of upgrades is disappointing, especially at the thirty US dollars price tag this game is being sold for. As far as GBA games go the graphics are pretty good. There is a lot of fighting where the player’s team is on one side and attacks, and then the enemies on the other side register a hit. There are also dead characters that are present to be talked to.

Getting on the topic of what is said through the written word of this game. There are scenes of sexual innuendo. A character that stands for morals is chastised. There are some profanities used in this game, and refusal to forgive. The music is classic Final Fantasy that role playing gamers have grown to love over the years.

There are plenty of side quests, monsters to find, occult items to use for magical gain, and a rather long quest to complete. Plenty of characters are in the party to be used, and they all have some unique fighting styles and/or button combinations. Bear in mind there is a lot of bad content in this game, and this is not a game for children.

The controls depend on the character. Sabin’s attacks are like performing attacks from the Street Fighter series, and can be extremely touchy. The rest of the characters control rather well. There are areas that the game is not too clear on where to go next, or how to get there. Trial and error is the methodology by which the story is eventually progressed.

This game has a train that takes the dead to eternal rest, a prostitute that gets way to explicit, an assassin that is a good guy, and plenty of other bad content. It is amazing what over a decade of spiritual growth did to the RPG Master. Back in the day I would have agreed with the secular media and call this game good. Now I wonder what I ever saw in such bad, and worldly philosophy. God is clear on offering forgiveness, not contacting the dead, and living a pure life. This game teaches the exact opposite.
