The beginning of a Legacy
4 January 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Final Fantasy is my favorite RPG of all time, the first Final Fantasy is where the legacy and the saga began, it is a very good game for the beginning of a great series.

The characters at first they have no names but the classes are: Fighter, Knight, Thief, Ninja, Black Belt, Monk, Red Mage, Red Wizard, White Mage, White Wizard, Black Mage and Black Wizard. Everytime I play the game, I always use 2 fighters one white mage and a black mage.

The game starts in a cool medieval world full of monsters and many cool things. And it is the birth of Nobuo Uematsu's greatest music of all the series.
