This is a truly great game. It's one of the few RPGs that has ever really grabbed me and that has stolen my time. One of the best games on PSX and maybe ever. Engaging story line, characters, an amazing soundtrack and FMVs/backdrops make this a masterpiece.
The only downside was that it was a tad difficult at times to work out where I actually needed to go. It benefits you to gain a lot of experience throughout most of your team, which I didn't, which made getting to the final boss great, but to beat almost impossible. But after a number of tries it was done. The card game is fire as well. One of those games and experiences I regularly think about.
