This is the first final fantasy. Although I've already played all the others (except the newest X), I believe that this is the best!! The graphics are ok for a nes game (better than the ones from DW) they are 8. The sound is good but it can be a bit annoying. Sound is always the worst part of any ff. it's a 6. Gameplay is 10. The game is extremely fun and it can take lots of hours to finish.
