The Best Final Fantasy game since Final Fantasy VII!
Take my word for this! This is an exceptional Final Fantasy although it is the most intense game I have played if you are not counting Xenosaga I and II. The violence is VERY strong in this game although there is no blood except in 2 scenes and the rest of the game is bloodless violence. The language is not an issue although the word damn and hell is used somewhat frequently. There are some sexual scenes but nothing stronger than 7+ for that. The story is very, very intense. It may be extremely upsetting for people under 15 and then ending is VERY!!!!!!!!!!!! sad. Basically, 14+ for the content and 16+ for the story unless you can handle intense, sad, and actually quite frightening!
Later in the game, you see the main enemy send a hole right through the centre of the Earth, and sends a HUGE tidal wive at 7+ people. Then a * shape comes out of the hole he made and sends major eruptions of flame come out of the Earth and wrap around the world. People from villages watch and screm as the 1,000,000,000,000,000 lbs+ creature falls from the sky and lands on the ground causing a 10 richter scale Earthquake. That is the most frightening scene in the game!
