  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls Review

GameSpot
1 December 2004
  • Summary: Though each game is showing its age a bit, the combined package is still worthwhile for old-school RPG fans and patient neophytes.
  • Pros: Two lengthy RPGs for the price of one, Bonus content, Ability to save anywhere
  • Cons: Old-school RPG mechanics, Frequent random battles, Port of a port of a port that’s showing its age

Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls

Project COE

  • Conclusion: It is remarkable that two games which are now so old still seem relevant. And yet both games are quite fun to play even after more than ten years! If you only received one title, your purchase would not be justified, but because two titles are included, this compilation actually holds merit.
