I would kill for a true sequel to this game. One of the few JRPGs that I actually beat as a kid.

Maybe if I cross my eyes long enough, the 2 in the headline would move behind Xenogears then it would look like a sequel was coming right....RIGHT!?

When my parents got me a PS1 for Christmas one year, this was the first game I got with it... along with Crash Bandicoot 2. I had never played an RPG so I basically grinded to level 16 in the first area thinking that I was far into the game because I was at level 16. Little did I know how an RPG really worked. Eventually I finished the game after a few years with it. I LOVED it with a passion.

the only thing that kills this game is the second disc which has immense amounts of text. Like you hardly even play, all you do is read and read and read and then some battles a boss fight and the end. This game would have been a masterpiece if fully finished but Square took more than half the team to help on the development of FF8.
