Chrono Series

  • Chrono Trigger
    • Let's start with the best, a review of many would call the best JRPG ever, let alone the best of the SNES era.
  • Chrono Cross
    • Chrono Trigger is great and we'll fight anyone that says otherwise. Chrono Cross, though? Not so much. Let's see if we can figure out why.

Final Fantasy Series

  • Final Fantasy
    • We take a proper dive into the Final Fantasy series with a look at the game that started it all, the NES original. It's a brutal game, but someone has to play it. Will it be you that next takes up the challenge?
  • Final Fantasy II
    • The series takes a weird diversion, crafting an entirely different way to craft your characters, in this deried game that feels too different from anything else in the series to be a proper sequel.
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Final Fantasy IV
  • Final Fantasy V
    • Four heroes come together to save the crystals that control their world, and then pick up a number of careers on the side in the game that redefined the Job System.
  • Final Fantasy VI
    • It's a group of heroes against a mad man hellbent on destroying world via the power of summons in this game that rides the transition from the SNES to the PlayStation era.
  • Final Fantasy VII
    • The series makes its debut on the PlayStation and becomes an unqualified smash sensation, with this game being the must have title for Sony's console.

Mana Series

  • Final Fantasy Adventure
    • We then turn our sights to the Seiken Densetsu series, as it's known in Japan, with the first of the titles in the series. Is this GameBoy adventure a classic or just an oddity?
  • Secret of Mana
    • The SNES follow-up to Final Fantasy Adventure improves everything while adding in better graphics and music. But does it really create a winner, or is it more weirdness from the Japanese company?

SaGa Series

  • The Final Fantasy Legend
    • Square's first Game Boy title continues the ideas and development from Final Fantasy II into an even weirder adventure.
  • Final Fantasy Legend II
    • Another group of adventurers go another another adventure up a tower in Square's follow-up to their Game Boy smash hit.
