Summary: Final Fantasy: Dawn of Souls is an enjoyable, old school RPG. It consists of both Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. Because these games are about 15 years old, they aren't for everyone, but if you like old school RPGs with turn based combat, you won't go wrong here. The stories aren't on the level of modern games, but are still enjoyable. There is some extra content to both games, which is always a plus, and just adds a few hours to some good RPG classics.
Excerpt: Several years ago, Square, for some reason, decided to remake the first two installments of their Final Fantasy franchise on Bandai's ill-fated Japan-only handheld system, the Wonderswan Color, and thus, neither would see foreign release. However, Square eventually decided to port the remakes to the Playstation in the collection Final Fantasy Origins in 2003.
Excerpt: Hear ye, hear ye, the time hath come to journey whence our RPG roots did spring. Yea, but the gardeners of ye old Square Enix did decree it too unpleasant to see the aged plants ‘twere the early RPGs the Square of old hath once foisted upon the public. And so it is that Square Enix did make the old seem new once more, for their bean-counters hath expressed concern on behalf o’ their bottom line.
Summary: Truly, this is the very core of Final Fantasy restored and revitalized! If you are a fan of the final fantasy series then you will love every moment of your trek through these two fantastic games! The graphics will remind you of the american version of Final Fantasy III for the SNES. We could only wish that they would've remade this for the DS as well as the PSP, but this game will fulfill even the most ardent rpger's need to enjoy the originals!
Summary: I would have given the game a five star rating. It is much like the original except for the improved sound and graphics. If you are a fan of the old school turned based rpg this game is great for you. My main dissapointment with the game is that it has been made so much easier than the original. This is a personal opinion and may not apply to you.
Summary: This is the game that started it all; the game that all other RPGs get their roots. Originally for the NES, it was the game that saved Squaresoft from bankruptcy and made it into the global comglomerate it is today. The game would later find a home on the PS1 in a collection with FFII called, Origins, and is now on both the GBA as the Dawn of Souls, and has been upgraded even more with more content for the PSP.
Pros: Amazing visuals, Engaging story, Loads of content, Intense action, Addictive gameplay, Just plain fun

Summary: any RPG fan, dare i say, every gamer owes it to themselves to experience the origins of one of the most revered series in the history of gaming. there have been a number of releases of the first two Final Fantasy games over the years, but the GBA offering Dawn of Souls is easily the best. these games helped shape the RPG as we know it today. and being able to experience both classics on one cartridge is a definite plus.
