The loading times are bad, worse than you'd expect. Sometimes even just opening the menu takes a while. That having been said, the translation is stiff as a board without any flavor injected. I'd recommend playing the GBA version. The colors and music aren't as nice, but it adds content, the translation takes more liberties, and it's just overall a better pickup.

>> No.4787680

The loading times seem like they wouldn't be an issue but you have to switch menus so often that it winds up being death by a thousand cuts. I originally played the RPGe version and couldn't get through PS1.

In anon's defense, FF6 does "feel" polished baesd on its aesthetics and controls. All of the game's elaborate sprite-acting scenes and scripted events are impeccably done. The UI is smooth and solid, for example the way weapon attributes can be examined feels much more polished in FF6 than in FF5 (and certainly more than FF4). Most players won't encounter the sketch bug or notice the evade bug.

Most of the issues with FF6's gameplay mechanics are design flaws rather than bugs or glitches, meaning the game still "feels" polished without actually being polished.

Because enormous multi-layered catacombs, slowly desintegrating into rot and oblivion, should naturally play like a Michael Bay movie. I mean, take for example speleology or Paris/Odessa catacombs. Ain't that a load of special effects and all the fancy explosions and generally being on entertained as all hell?
RoMD is pretty much the only game in the existence, that makes you feel as if you were in an actual catacomb purely through its gamedesign, layout design and encounter design, and it, at least, deserves some respect just for that.

Also, once having been patched and barring compatibility issues, its engine is just fine. It's 60fps, it's responsive, it's smooth, and well, really, just more or less overall convenient. More so, at least from my standpoint, than any of the Infinities are, and undeniably more so, than the sprawling piece of code ToEE sports.

Its worth playing just for the fact that there's a sequel and you can dump hundreds of hours into both games. I actually just finished bg1 and was wondering if its worth playing siege of dragonspear (not retro) or if I should just jump straight into 2 without all the gear and extra levels you get from 1.5

>> No.4787689

Yes, it's good in very different ways from its sequel. It has a much better sense of exploration and the way the story is introduced through the half of the game first borders on genius for a low-level adventure.

Skip it and come back to check it out later if you really want more content. BG2 is a loot whore's paradise and it's not like you need a leg up to get through the early game.

What a curious mindset. Even if we really looking forward to exploring a huge barren low-res catacomb, the game is still pretty fucking boring even in a combat. Which, for all accounts and purposes, should be a bit more entertaining than looking at an Excel table.

I tend to play only on real hardware on gen five and up. Anything below that I try to avoid save scumming.

If a game is fun but it tests my patience at some point, I will save scum to a degree. Like save before a boss battle with full health to avoid having to grind for health and traverse to the boss from the last checkpoint, if there was one. I don't save after every successful hit on the boss.

Now if a game tests my patience and it's not really fun from the get go, I just don't bother playing past the part that I got hung up on.

i mean the n64 catalog, why keep pushing the dpad on the left if you use more the stick, so you can grab the controller side to side, is more natural and feels better, that's why is nowadays standardized design

sorry, English is not my first language, i meant symmetric

>> No.4787197

>i refer to hand positioning
yeah, and it feels more natural to use the stick that way, on PS you kind of have to stretch your thumb a bit to the center (actually similar to how some people who don't know how to grab the N64 controller grab it like a regular controller and try to reach the stick with their thumb).
Anyway, the N64 controller's design is weird as fuck, but to me at least, it worked great. Only actual complaint I have is the build quality of the sticks themselves and how they become loose. Never had one fall off, though, they still work somehow.

You spend hours in the character creation because you have to have such specific stats to choose your class and they don't tell you in-game...the whole thing is so obtuse you end up having to go back to the manual over and over before you can get through it...it's not a compliment.

The game should have let you pick your class first if it was going to restrict them by your stats instead of forcing you to use the manual to find out what stats you needed for the class you want. I'm guessing it was some bullshit anti-piracy measure.

>> No.4787661

It's based on a German tabletalk RPG. Some classes are supposed to be more elusive than others.

Just roll a decent set of good positive attributes and raise them to 13 at the expense of negative attributes (aside from superstition which should be 2). Then you reuse those attributes for the entire party.

Gameplay: yes

I love the game and i have replayed it plenty of times, but Jrpgs really need a good story to keep you on track. And Lufia 2 doesn't have that.

>> No.4787252

>And Lufia 2 doesn't have that.
Agreed, the only parts of Lufia 2 that are memorable are lifted straight out ouf Lufia 1 (where the whole Lufia 2 story actually seemed to be way better than it ended up being).

That being said, as a game and not a storybook, it's up there with FFV for great gameplay and replayability. It's funny that both games have dumb stories, seems you can't focus on having good gameplay without forgetting to write a decent story.

>> No.4787281

Lufia 2's battle system is extremely boring and standard JRPG fare, as far as I remember. People like to bring up the equipment skills but they're not a big deal at all and you're probably fine ignoring them; I'm pretty sure I did the usual buff attack heal stuff in almost every fight in the game, with the only exceptions being the ones before I could buff and/or heal. (Note: This does not apply to Ancient Cave, which is its own beast and is pretty cool)

But MAN are those puzzles good. Lufia 2 is a bad JRPG but it's such a good puzzle game that it's totally worth playing just for that.

>> No.4787494

The best? Probably not. It's still my favorite RPG on the SNES though.
The music is memorable, the graphics look pretty good considering SNES space limitations some summoning spells still look awesome to this day, the puzzles give a lot of variety because of being able to use specific items like in link to the past and so do the capsule monsters and the dungeons never seem boring because they change the setting regularly and as said before, AC is pretty cool.
On the other hand, the story is barely there most of the game even if it wasn't that bad when it actually came up occasionally. Most of the time, you do things that barely have anything to do with the main plot and feel like filler you can't skip so that won't convince "open world" fags.

What's probably one of the greatest things about the game -and in Earthbound as well- is that in enemies are visible in dungeons and you can avoid most of them with your skill items. That way you won't have to battle too many foes if you don't feel like grinding (not that you would need to cause this game is much easier than most RPGs).

no, that'd be one of the Romancing SaGas, FFV or Live-A-Live
