Experience the game that saved Square from death!

These games may have been created more than a decade ago but, there still as good as back when they saved Square from certain death all those years ago. Now, you can re-experience the games along with updated graphics, extra cutscenes, and extra dungeons.

The games` stories aren`t much but, you can`t count it against them for the time they were created. The NES era!

These games are RPGs done in the oldest style which is a typical turn based battle format with dungeons and towns to explore which you reach on an overworld map. On the overworld map, you will run into random encounter monsters. Even though we have definitely seen this format before, anyone who hasn`t experienced these games yet is really missing out!

This game has very good lasting appeal. Because there are two games and each takes around 25 to 30 hours and they both have a bestiary which is a book which keeps track of all of the monsters you have encountered. You can try to complete your bestiary for both games by encountering every monster in each game.

These games are great and should be picked up by any RPG or Final Fantasy fan. However, if you picked up Final Fantasy Origins for the PSX, you may not want this game but, if you loved it, you will probably want to go through the extra dungeons which pose quite a challenge.

Overall: 9/10

Now that its summer everyone is going on vacation and that means long car and plane rides. This game is perfect for summer because it is extremely long(it has FF 1&2!!)and addicting. In fact this game would be great in any season because it rocks! It has the original final fantasy 1 and #2 and both have been revamped to look better and play better. Best of all this game is cheep, MC hammer could afford this. I got mine on eBay for $8.99 and its the best purchase of my life. Buy this perfect game!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used to play this game on the original nintendo system almost 20 years ago. Its almost the exact same thing as it was back then except the battle portion has been updated on both games. I would recommend this to anyone who has liked any of the final fantasy games.
