All of the elder Final Fantasy titles tend to be great games, but Final Fantasy VI is considered the best of the series, at least by GamesRadar, Kotaku, and IGN. The classic turn-based battling system never will be better than in it’s golden age, and it ports very well to mobile devices. Bust most importantly, the Final Fantasy fan-boys of the world seem to talk the least about Final Fantasy VI, leaving its story and great depth completely unspoiled by references or reveals for the uninitiated gamer.
While the high price tag may scare off new players unfamiliar with the series, Final Fantasy VI is a masterpiece experience that should be played by new fans and replayed by long time adorers of the game’s deep story, magnificent music, and lush 16-bit landscapes.
Final Fantasy VI is available now on the various Apple devices and is rated 9+.
