Probably the best game ever made.
Yes i say probably because i think that there might be a better game some ware but i cant remember any at the moment.
Any way this game is amazing you will have a blast.
I cant say it more clearly than that it is an epic story. That i wish they could remake some day of course with all the finesse and polished as the latest Final Fantasy games with voice acting and all. It would be amazing and i think there only is a question of when rather than if they will make a remake of it.
