Playing on max difficulty.
Playing mostly for Nostalgia, as I notice that the fight mechanics feel outdated, and the DMW system feels random.

Boy oh boy, the price of freedom is steep.

jogo extremamente foda, zerei ele em um rio de lágrimas

I had so much fun playing this game. I completed every mission on my first playthrough - there were some that were stressful until I figured out what to do and how to max out Zack and make him invulnerable for the most part. That made the final boss easy since I beat the superboss first. Me? Gongaga. Zack 🥺

Pros:
Getting level ups and other stats is addicting, story is endearing
The ending FUCKING RULES and brought the game from a 2 to a 3 for me
Game is pretty and zack is a good character and does cool shit
The main plot showcases its themes of companies/the military taking advantage of their workers excellently by making the main character a naive wannabe hero to which the company he works for strings his desire along into making him do morally incorrect things under the guise of being for the sake of good
This is elevated by the way he treats fights and the combat starting and ending noises "battle mode activated", "conflict resolved". It really puts his role into perspective for the player

Cons:
The game is ass LOL
The gameplay is repetitive, unfair at times, meandering, pointless, loaded with filler and pointlessness, the dungeon design is extremely robotic/prefab
The story doesnt know what it wants to do and spends a lot of time pretending like something meaningful is happening when nothing of substance is happening
Lots of the games mechanics are essentially dictated by rng, it doesnt inhibit gameplay but it makes the game a bit less easy to grind in

Overall
This game is charming, showing off kazushige nojima's excellent ability to make characters super endearing and earnest and enjoyable even if the script he's working with is complete dogshit
Despite the lack of substance on most of the characters, nojima manages to deliver an emotional connection to the characters and their relationships, but overall the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired
I did decide to completely minmax zack, I think i would have enjoyed the game a lot more if I hadn't
I would recommend playing this game but NOT 100%ING IT or taking it too seriously

I loved this game. The precursor to FF7. Its combat is unique I love the slot machine aspect of the combat. It’s one of the best made PSP titles and glad it got the remake treatment.
