Yes, but the fan translation is excellent. One of the best I've read.

I know Rules hooked me up with some great tips for the FF games but what are other people's opinions on good FF games, examples of easy to pick up RPG's and {although this is already being discussed} good RPG's in general.
Well, there are different sub-genres of RPGs. For a traditional RPG, I'd recommend FF X. Don't be scared of FF games. All are fairly linear and you can do back tracking and side quests if you wish. FF X is one of the more linear ones.

If you don't want a traditional JRPG, I'd recommend Dragon Age: Origins. Its excellent and very similar to the most acclaimed Western RPGs like Fallout 1/2, Baldur's Gate 1/2, Diablo 1/2, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Nope, as mentioned before, FF X. Or even FF 7 if you enjoy older games and aren't bothered by outdated graphics.

Loved it.
