Rated 9 out of 10 by ChickenBattleMaster88 Loved it to death
FF1 a very great game that i can see being one of the best psp games for a long time. The game starts and until the very end stays very fun. It does not drop the ball in the fun area at all. Keeps you wanting to play through out the whole. Also boss fights ar super fun plus there are very cool weapons. If that is not enough then the part when you boost up your characters class just blow me away. This game along with a few other titles are games you must buy. Playing this game will make you love your psp 5 times more with no effort, The things wrong with this game are very few like only having four characters to play with which may get boring.The story is kinda good but is simple since in the end it is just getting the the crystals so it ends up being nothing great. Bottom line this game is a good buy and is really good if you just love turn based games like i do/
Rated 9 out of 10 by bigmoose One of the best RPGs of all time
Final Fantasy I for the PSP is a great game. You can turn it into one of the best games, because you can either auto-name or name the fellowship yourself. The storlyine is classic, and the graphics are great. Final Fantasy is a game with a wide variety of details, so it would take forever to list them all, but the gameplay is fantastic and exciting. The difficulty is fantastic-- at first, it's nice and easy to understand and when it's the time that you're an expert the game steadily gets harder (in a good way). Occasionally when you're on the road or the wild or something you either get ambushed or ambush someone (a peremitive strike). It's very exciting. In Final Fantasy, unexpected and exciting twists can occur with tons of stuff all to form the ultimate RPG. This game is epic and could be one of the best RPGs for years to come.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fancydancer An amazing game i do not regret buying
This game is very cheap. They are going to stop selling this game soon because its old. I got this game for $10 and i do not regret it. THIS IS THE BEST GAME IN THE WORLD. God, the graphics are amazing compared to the last game, you want to keep playing so you become a higher level, and after you beat this you want to continue on to the next game. The problem is, the 2nd game i dont know where to get it. But over all, this is one of the best games i have ever played in my life. I got a psp today at game stop, and i was wondering what games i should get. I got final fantasy and kingdom hearts birth by sleep. They are both great, but if you have a psp this game is a must buy game :DDDD

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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jnt long To my fellow rpg fans.
Final Fantasy I Anniversary Edition is a very good game on the psp. The controls are easy to learn and it has a very small learning curve. It is a ported game from the original and offers new challenges for the psp version. At the beginning of the game, you get to create a team to take on your journey. A warrior, a thief, a monk and then there are black, white, and red mages to choose from. Each one starts with different stats, and equip different sets of weapons and armor. It is common knowledge with all rpg games I've played that you gain experience as you fight or cast spells during battle. The character will gain levels as he gets more points, thus becoming stronger the more he fights. This is no different. Developing your character is a fun way to customize your team. This version also keeps track of all the enemies you defeat in the menu screen, and shows a percentage for your defeated foes. A nice addition for those of us who have that need to defeat every bad guy in the game. It also gives the enemies' stats and weaknesses. Replay value for me personally is very high, as you can create a wide variety of teams at the beginning. I would very much recommend this game to all rpg players.
Rated 8 out of 10 by OcarinaOfAwesome 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by drako45 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
Rated 10 out of 10 by EBONYxIVORY Got me back into the series
Well. let me start off by saying this is one of my favorite games now adays. I have been working hard on it and have been getting real good. I don't really play games that make you have turn based battles but after I played the final fantasy Remake for the PSP. I loved the final fantasy series all over again. In this game you play as four warriors of light you can make your warriors either: Warriors, thieves, monks, White Mages (Like healers), Black Mages (Use Offensive magic), or red mages which use swords, white magic and black magic. the customization for the characters could've been better but it is real simple and easy to use you have you weapon hand, shield hand, armor slot, and glove slot. real simple. The storyline is good for a game that was originally made for the NES. As I said before you play as four warriors of light the warriors carry crystals whose full potential are unlocked throughout the course of the game. The battle system is not what I like but once I got the hang of it I started gaining levels like crazy and enjoying the game a lot more. Now the graphics I was really impressed with, I mean compared to the previous remakes and the original game itself. Everything in this remake is now all smooth and less pixelated which makes the game a lot more appealing. So if you want to buy this game I highly recommend it and I also recommend checking out the rest of the series (especially the Final Fantasy Tactics game line)

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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by yankeesfan2 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.
