This is a brilliant game; as nerdy as it sounds, if I were to nominate a 'best ever' game release, it'd be this.

And one thing that makes this game even better than fantastic is the music. Uematsu's ridiculous skill of disregarding the issues and limitations of video game technology (back then) is in fine form here. His earlier soundtracks are all pretty good, some missfires here and there, but one is a defining cornerstone in his career.

I have to give this piece a 4.5 more accurately, however, for the occasional dull patch, and the awful 'opera' scores (no matter how he tried, 'voice' electronic programming back then sounded nothing like human vocal chords, and are totally outdated and cheesy). Also, the booklet could've used a little more effort for such a grand release. Still, it's an awesome soundtrack that fans of game/ambient/electronic music should get into.
