Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls review (GBA)

  • Excerpt: Nostalgia's greatest bane is simply that, oftentimes, those classic games of yesteryear have been surpassed in quality by more recent ones. After the thrill of taking that trip down memory lane has faded a bit, it's common to realize you're playing something that’s more primitive and clunky than it...

  • Excerpt: To quote the old song, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. With release dates firing off so fast it’d make anyone dizzy, it’s easy to get lost.

  • Excerpt: The Gameboy Advance has been a safe haven for remakes and re-releases of many roleplaying titles from the 16-bit days.

  • Conclusion: “Save the world!” I’ll get right on that. How about a hint as to where I should start. Having no map to consult or even a quest log to look at is a big misstep, especially if the purpose of this 2-in-1 cart was to get me interested in the rest of the Final Fantasy series.

  • Excerpt: Back during the NES days, Nintendo enjoyed the company of one of the greatest RPG developers of the time. Square helped shape the console RPG into the big business it has become today on the Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy, and Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
