The game that made me a Final Fantasy fan.
3 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I was not a huge fan of the first Final Fantasy game, however, I loved this game when it was released as Final Fantasy II. It was just vastly different at the time to anything I was used to. I loved the scenes where the characters acted own their own to add to the story, the music seemed great, and the story was very well played out. The fighting was good too, but this game was mainly story based as the story was more important than the fighting. Here it is turned based, and even though today it looks a bit odd seeing basically a picture blink to indicate an attack it is still great in its simplicity. The story follows Cecil who is a dark knight on a quest for redemption and to discover the mystery's of the crystals. He finds many comrades to aid him along the way, and villains to try and obstruct it. You have your basic element villains and other villains who seem to have connections with our heroes. There is nothing like this game still as the story still sparks emotion as there is a lot of self sacrifice to occur. You travel many lands in this one, including the lands of the drawf and you even get to fly into space. You have your humorous characters and you have your super magic attacks and summons. In this one the characters are also all rather unique unlike other final fantasy where there are no real differences between characters. So all in all still one of the best.
