  • Excerpt: Nearly two decades ago, a young Japanese video game company, Squaresoft, released the two introductory titles to what eventually became their flagship RPG series: Final Fantasy . Final Fantasy was then unleashed on North American shores to a very warm welcome, whilst Final Fantasy II remained in Japan. Years later, the two games were overhauled and remade for the handheld system, Wonderswan Color, which was never released outside of Japan.

Just RPG

  • 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. If you’re looking for a good handheld to bolster the collection though, you can do a lot worse than Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls . Like your favorite coat, there’s a comfortable familiarity to Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls graphics.

  • Excerpt: The Gameboy Advance has been a safe haven for remakes and re-releases of many roleplaying titles from the 16-bit days. Someone's apparently forgotten to tell Square-Enix which titles to re-release, as following 2003's Sword of Mana is Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, another spawn of NES titles. That's not to say that Dawn of Souls is a complete rehash, however; the game holds a completely redone visual interface as well as additional dungeons for each of the games.

  • Excerpt: If you were to ask me, I'd be among the first to admit that I am a fan of old-school turn-based RPGs. Newer ones that convey the old-school feel and relative simplicity of the older ones, such as the Golden Sun series, I also enjoy, but sometimes it is nice to be able to go back and to play actual RPGs from the period when they were just beginning to come into their own.

  • 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. Without some more obvious direction, Dawn of Souls descends into random monster fights, leveling up endlessly, and buying better equipment at towns (when you can find them).

  • Excerpt: The first two Final Fantasy games might just be the most remade games of all time. First came the WonderSwan Color version, then the Final Fantasy Origins iteration, and now we are at the set’s Game Boy Advance outing in Final Fantasy I&II: Dawn of Souls . Is it really worth it the fourth time through? It’s the original Final Fantasy ! Of course it is! The first game in the set is arguably the more popular one.

  • 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. However, after issues Square had with Nintendo and the lack of willingness to change media formats on the Nintendo 64, Square made history with Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation.
