RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

*Gasp* I can't be, two of the best games ever made on one cartridge? Wow, what a deal!

Yes, I am somewhat sarcastic, but honestly, anyone and everyone who has play Final Fantasy before should know about the rich history this game has, it is a real treat to play the first two in the series.

Final Fantasy 1 has us with heroes we created, from various classes. This was a change from the text RPGS and other fantasy based games back in the 80's, never before were you CUSTOMIZING your characters. You then set off on an adventure that would take you a long time to complete, from helping sick elves, to blowing up bridges, to fighting pirates and the undead. The game was long, hard to beat, and every step of the way fun and entertaining.  The customization was revolutionary at the time, the graphics were very good (and even better on the GBA, love the new details and such.) and the controls were simple to master.


Final Fantasy 2 takes it a step further, making more changes. This time, you start as 4 youths who have to fight in a resistance army against an evil empire. Here we have a weapon system and magic system, again adding to the customization. Want Guy to be a monk, let him only use his fists. Want Leon to be a black mage, give him a ton of fire and ice spells. Throw in a Cure or Protect and make him a Red mage! Here we got a whole new level of customization, not classes this time, but personal preference! Oh, and lets not forget the first time we see Cid, the prominent character in EVERY Final Fantasy from here on out.
Graphically the game is similar to FF 1, execpt we have portraits now for the characters. A nice touch. Control wise it is also the same, but then again, why fix something thats not broken.


In this set, we get 2 excellent games in the beginnings of one of the strongest Franchises in the history of Video games. Honestly, I don't give out this grade to much, I think ive only done it once or twice, but this is one game (or one game pack) that deserves the grade.
