Looking at the games that the company has already released, and adding to that the strong lineup of upcoming titles that will be unleashed on American gamers on a monthly basis throughout this summer and fall, this is undoubtedly Square EA's year. No other game company, including Sega and Nintendo, has a software lineup that includes this much quality.
The biggest case in point is that Vagrant Story is generally overshadowed by Square's other titles such as Final Fantasy IX, Chrono Cross, Legend of Mana, and Parasite Eve II, when it's arguably one of the best games on PlayStation.
Under the fine direction of Yasumi Matsuno, the game has a storyline and presentation that are equal to that of Hideo Kojima's cinematic masterpiece, Metal Gear Solid. In fact, the five-minute long opening sequence to the game is one of the best one will ever encounter in a videogame and will pull the player deeply into the storyline as well as any opening to a big budget Hollywood action flick.
Truth be told, the actual storyline of the game plays out much better than most of today's big blockbuster films. Set in Medieval times, the game's story revolves around Riskbreaker Ashley Riot, who is a member of the Valendia Knights of the Peace (VKP).
