Did You Know?


A rare example of a Final Fantasy game that doesn't have an experience points system, instead featuring the ability to level up different attributes of characters through their usage. For example, using the "attack" command frequently in battle will give your character a better attack rating, while using a magic spell plenty of times will allow that spell to become more powerful.

Final Fantasy II was a game I arrived upon during a mad rush to play every Final Fantasy game that ever was. I had played 1, 6, 7 and most of 5 when I found it for the NES emulator, completely translated, and it blew me away. The music is downright haunting, and the plotline, although odd, is totally gripping. It moves fairly fast, and a few characters die, but it is certainly one of the best games I've ever played.
