Final Fantasy VI. Squaresoft (1999) PlayStation



First off, this is the PlayStation re-release, not the original SNES version.

Secondly, and to the point… This is my favourite Final Fantasy game. If you know me, you will know I have spent the last 18 years saying Final Fantasy 7 is the best game ever. Well, I have been converted.

Differences between original and re-release

There are no real differences between this and the original SNES version in terms of gameplay/graphics, and sound. The differences are:

  • *Slight* loading time increase between menus/battles
  • Addition of the Memo saving function
  • CGI intro, and CGI ending.

Other than those 3 minor changes, this is the same game you played on the SNES, with the 16bitty goodness has been retained.


Like the Silent Hill HD Collection this is a rerelease of a fantastic game but doesn’t quite scale the exacting standards set by the original. The key difference is this rerelease doesn’t change anything except add awful load times when going into the menu, which you’ll do a lot.

Pros: It is Final Fantasy VI

Cons: Load times on PS1 are a little shit
