Final Fantasy I
A Perfect Remake
Yes, this is a remake of Final Fantasy (download the original on the Wii's Virtual Console and you'll understand). But regardless, Final Fantasy for the Playstation Portable is a good remake to the one that started the franchise. The graphics, polished and glossed to perfect. The sound and music, beautiful to listen to. The gameplay, the true RPG feel when you hold this game in the palm of your hands.
The game that started it all.
Final Fantasy is a series that many people adore because of its great graphics, excellent story-lines, and deep characters. However, the series just started off as your average RPG. The first game has a somewhat weak story that feels like it belongs in a mario game rather than an epic RPG. However, as you play more and more of this game, you come to realize just how much classic charm it contains.
Now, despite being a classic, this is a pretty long game. I have played it for hours and barely made a scratch on the surface of the gameplay. Part of the charm of this game comes from the difficult dungeons and vast world-map.
The dungeons can be pretty difficult, not to mention all the level-grinding that you need to do in order to complete the dungeons. However, all of your hard work seems to pay off once you have defeated a particuarly hard boss.
As for the world map, it seems to go on forever. Okay, maybe not forever, but it's pretty big. There are many kingdoms in need of your help, or princesses who have been kidnapped. Once you get the hang of using the boat, which you unlock near the beginning of the game, it's pretty cool.
Overall, this is a good, fun remake of an average game. If you enjoy Final Fantasy three, this game is a must-play.
Good but not amazing
This game pretty much took the oringinal and made it much easier. First they made the theif job class much better. probley the thing that made this game so much easier was them adding MP instead of spell charges. Don't get me wrong this is a pretty good game and all but not really that close to what the oringinal was. If you really want to play it like the oringinal I would recommend final fantasy origins or dawn of souls but if your looking for a fun new experiece i would try this.
Classic, but tedious at times
If you're dying to play an old school RPG then you may like this game. Although this game has some great classes and a nice albeit simple story it also has some annoying features such as random encounters. IN certain areas the random encounters are so frequent that you can barely move without encountering another random enemy which makes exploration very tedious. There are far better RPGs on the PSP.
The very first rpg I ever played was Revelations: The Demon Slayer. Later on I upgraded to Dragon Warrior and Dragon Warrior Monsters. All on the original gameboy. Why oh why did I never try Final Fantasy. I decided to pick this up and what a surprise I got. I am now addicted to it. This brings me back to the type of games I love. I would recommend this to anyone. The battles are quick and the world is massive. If your looking for a great way to waste time on work breaks or while you are waiting for a family member, Final Fantasy is a must have.
Ok when I first started playing final fantasy i first played dissidia final fantsy. I thought it was pretty good and the story was amazing. I know this is the first and you learn where is where and who is who but i learned all that from Youtube.If you want a good game from final fantsy then get one of the older ones it way better. and for my product reccomendations i also reccomend Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core but i could only do three. thank you for not buying this game.
The original is reborn for the psp! One of the all time greatest games ever created. For the new generation of gamers that ever experianced the 80s this is the foundation of all RPGs and the flagship of the final fantasy series. I was so excited when I found this game on the shelf. I bought it right away and raced home to play. I must have played this game nonstop for days. I was very impressed by the graphics. Sure other games have better graphics then this game but the overhaul still kept the same old school feel without hurting your eyes on the 8-bit graphics in the original. The best part of this game is that no matter how old you are this game is perfect for you. The advanture that you go on is one that you probably think is simaliar to another game you have played but this is the one that other games are modelled after. If you end up play this game you need to go to elfland/ elf village or whatever its called and go to the graves and read them. If you do that it is just a small amount of the humour and up dated speech throughout the game. This is THE game to get for anyone that likes RPGs, advanture and likes final fantasy. Anyone can play this game and enjoy it so go get it.
The Heart of it all.
In the begining! There was the this game called "Final Fantasy". And My mom saw that it was good :P( I was1 ) As i played my very 1st rpg this was it! this was my all time favorite game for a VERY long time and still ranks in the top 10. on the old NES back in the 80' early 90's this was my favorite game played it over and over and still as the new ones come out i refer back to this one. the begining of it all. No as i read in a review this game probly isn't for noobs you'd had to play a previous version of it before or be a fan of the serious becuase there isn't much of the NEW stuff you'd find in a psp rpg but its a classic. and its a AWESOME one at that. You get 4 dudes ,always in the team, and 6 classes to choose from Warrior Monk Thief White Mage Red Mage and Black mage. depending on the class you choose for each effects the games diffuclty. Lots of weps and armor to obtain and equip. a easy game to play with some very nice backround music some of which i wish they'd bring back in the newer final fantasy's. classic Turnbased battle system ( Which I LOVE) picking a selection to perform for each chacter and it does it without being attacked by monsters giving u all the time in the world to do what you want and keep track of ur health. As I ment by makeing it easy to play. the story.. well ur goona have to READ they ain't goona pop up with an anime character and read it out loud for you... sorry gotta use a lil brain in this one. if you don't read ur goona get lost but even if u blow through it its not hard to figure out where to go. you just won't know why your going there. the story is a lil diffrent form the orignal but has same point to it. the gameplay is fun and its a nice little adventure won't take long to beat 8-32hrs of play depening on ur experiance and skill of having played it before. it is after all a remake of a NINTENDO game. and those never lasted longer then 4hrs no matter what game u played. exception of a few. (Ultima for example 50+) if ur looking for a nice old fashioned rpg this is the best you'll ever put ur time and life into.
Great game but not for noobs
This game is amazing. Great story great gameplay great music just great. But its not for gamers who havent experienced a game like this before. What I mean by that is it isn't for gamers that din't sit down and play the same game for 4 hours striaght 7 days a week. You also have to pay alot of attention in this game. What I mean is that it is easy to forget what was happening the last time you played, so don't get grounded. Trust me on that be good when you are playing an ff game because I got grounded while playing ff 3 and lost interest in it untill about 2 years later when I realized I hadn't beat it yet. So overall an amazing game but be prepared to play for a while
An amazing remake of an amazing game!
The game that started it all. This game is a dream come true to hardcore RPG gamers. When you first start the game you have to select 4 characters from 6 different classes and name them then the story begins and you have to save the world from destruction
