What happened in the three hours of the game?
After awaking from a sleep, you realize you remember nothing of your past or of who you are. A old man kindly helps you, but that time is cut short as the empire comes to the town looking t o arrest you. The old man points you in the direction of the town mines. As you make your way there you're corned by emperial guards. You happen to fall down a hole and fall unconscious. you awake to find that a thief who is part of the resistance, has rescued you. You escape the town with the help of this thief and make your way to a nearby castle where you meet other members of the resistance. This is where your adventure begins.
What was the most challenging part you completed?
The last few boss battles before you get to the final boss. If you weren't well equipped or you were under-leveled prior to these fight you would know it. the bosses hit hard. I had the strongest spell in the game (Ultima) and still had a hard time with these last couple of bosses.
What was the best part of the story?
Getting to second world. Those of you who played this game know about the story up til this point. This is possibly the best part of the game. The whole game does a 360 and you virtually start the game over again on a New Game+ save. That's how I saw it at least. It was fun going through this part of the game. it was a new adventure in and of itself
Share the most innovative gameplay mechanic.
The Espers hands down. They provided a nice boost to your stats when you leveled up or a nice boost as a passive ability. You were only given a small amount to begin with (once you unlocked the ability to use them) and getting the rest of them was your responsibility. You had to search for these magical creatures on your own.Some were really easy to miss, others were right in your face. You didn't have to search for them though. It was entirely up to the player to decide if they wanted to search for them.
What ice cream flavor best represents this game?
Final Fantasy VI is more like the building blocks of ice cream. You can modify the recipe to however you want. It's such a fun thing to tinker with until you get just the right taste that you want. With a cast of 14 characters, your party can vary each time you play through this game. Adding in all the the esper stat boosts, you can make your characters stats to however you want.
