Final Fantasy iPhone App Review

Description:

The first edition of Final Fantasy was released in 1987 in Japan.  This was the first game of a long line of games that have been known for incredible story lines and addicting gameplay.  One of the very first really successful RPG’s out there, Final Fantasy paved the way for a number of other franchises that have also become famous.  But even though there have been spin-offs, the original Final Fantasy franchise is still heralded as one of the most compelling and rich game franchises in video game history.

When this game was first released to the public in 1987, gamers were blown away by the amazing graphics and the detailed story.   The story takes place around a cast of lovable characters.  The Warriors of Light must be helped as they set out on a fantastic adventure to go out into the dangerous wilderness and bring the crystals back to their original light.  It features 2D side battles and allows players to use the unique abilities of each of the characters in order to defeat enemies.  Each character has his or her own upgrades and weapons that they can carry.  This allows you to spend a lot of time upgrading each individual character.

You also have the ability to control lineups, magic powers, and items.  There are hundreds of different items, spells, and weapons you can use as you progress through your journey.  The world that you play on is huge, and you will find yourself playing for hours and hours in order to finish the game.  The bosses are challenging, and you will have to seek out harder enemies to claim more gold and buy new and improved weapons.  Work your way through the world and collect all the crystals in order to bring peace to the world once again!

This edition also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game–the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time.

Features:

  • Classic remake of one of the most influential games of all time
  • Includes 2 new bonus dungeon levels.  They include the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time
  • Lots of different items, weapons, spells, and armor to choose from
  • Fully upgrade your characters as you gain money from battles
  • Hours of gameplay and smooth transitions

Conclusion:

Anyone that likes video games has come across this incredible franchise before.  Final Fantasy pretty much started the RPG genre.  The only problem with this remake is the readable text.  It is inconsistent and sometimes way too small.  But other than that this is a classic, and it would be a shame to not own it.

Voted 4 1/2 stars by iPhone app users and runs for around $8.99.
