Product Description

Product Description

Great Games and accessories for all Consoles from Gamesbuyer.

Manufacturer's Description

Return to the true origins of one of the most popular game series ever created. Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II were the foundation of console RPGs as we know them today and are finally available together in Europe for the very first time on PlayStation.

In Final Fantasy, four warriors of light, each possessing a special crystal, are summoned to bring harmony back to a world threatened by an evil entity intent on conquering it. Together, the warriors battle hideous creatures and travel across the world in order to restore order and peace.

In Final Fantasy II, the emperor of Palamecia launches a campaign for world domination. In response, a rebel force rises in the kingdom of Fynn; in the ensuing clash, the rebels are forced to retreat to the remote town of Altair. Among them, four childhood friends find themselves orphaned, homeless and running for their lives. They are the only hope for the rebels and their struggle against the evil Palamecian empire.

Both games contain all-new features, including state-of-the-art CG sequences, a memo file save system, and enhanced graphics, and come packaged in a two-disc set complete with Yoshitaka Amano art cards that are exclusive to PAL territories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Origins of Final Fantasy 14 July 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're a true Final Fantasy fan, then I stongly recommend that you get Final Fantasy Origins. It contains the first two Final Fantasy games, which don't seem to be very popular, but I like them and keep in mind that these two were really popular in their time.

The graphics are a slight improvement from the original versions, and both Final Fantasies are different in ways. They both start of with naming the characters. The first Final Fantasy is also the first to introduce the job class system. This one begins with you selecting your four warriors. The options are the following:
Warrior - strong fighter. Skilled with a sword.
Thief - warrior with the ability to steal of enemies.
Monk - Ninja like fighter
Black Mage - a warrior who can cast black magic spells (Bolt, Ice, Fire, ect).
White Mage - a warrior who can cast white magic spells (Cure, Esuna, Life, etc).
Red Mage - a warrior that can use both black and white magic. Red Mages however have less varieties of magic to use then the white or black mage.

Selecting your warriors can be tricky. Here's my advice. Have a white mage (useful with healing and works out cheaper for potion shopping). A black mage is also useful, for some enemies have an elemental weakness. Having a warrior is also useful as they're strong fighters. It doesn't matter who your fourth warrior is, as long as you have a black mage, a white mage and a warrior.

Unlike the later Final Fantasy games, the warriors have no names. If you have trouble thinking of names, then name them after later Final Fantasy characters. EG: I always call the black mage Vivi, who was the black mage character in Final Fantasy IX.

Final Fantasy II in many ways is better.

When Sqaure decided to "give a little back" to the somewhat neglected PAL users who always seem to get the raw deal by releasing their remakes of Final Fantasy 1 and 2 in Europe before America, I, along with much of the European Final Fantasy Fraternity, was chuffed. Although it may seem like a cheap marketing ploy to some, Square really have made the effort this time giving us graphically re-mastered versions of the two classics, along with intro FMVs to boot. Yes the games are short, yes the early days of Final Fantasy were somewhat less-producive than recent achievments (sorry retro fanboys), and yes these games are completely out dated, but any FF fan should own this duo; they tell us more about the games that we have come to love, and make us appreciate the franchise even more.
Of course, you'll whiz through FF1, and take a fraction longer to complete the second installment, but it is indeed satifying to revel in the fact that you have played and completed two videogames that were to change the face of RPG gaming forever.
Well worth your hard earnt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to the old school! 20 Mar 2003
By A Customer
I have only one thing to say about this, if you are a Final Fantasy fan and you don't buy this then you are no fan at all.
The graphics may not be up to the same standards as the modern FF outings but this is more than compensated for by the compelling gameplay and the usual highly involving storylines.
Final Fantasy 1 was only ever released in Japan and America and this is the first time that Final Fantasy 2 has ever made it out of its' home country.
My only complaint with these two games are the excessive random battles but after a while you will get used to this as you always have to do with RPG's.
All in all, this package is well worth the attention of any fan and really is a welcome return to the old school of RPG's.
Roll on Final Fantasy 3!

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice little addition 5 April 2003
By A Customer
I welcomed these remkaes of FF1 and 2 with open arms, desperate to see where it all began and have some fun along the way. I was not dissapointed.
Final Fantasy is a small joy, as you choose a party of four heroes and set off to save the world from destruction. You may choose a differnt class for each of your charceters, and you are given a choice between six classes for each:Fighter(power),Theif(speed),monk(defense and power),Black mage(damage spells), White Mage(healing spells) and Red mage (weaker damage and magic spells). Once you have chosen yout team you cannot change charcter class, so make sure you choose carefully.
Battles are enjoyable, but there is a lack of real turn order, with slower charcters sometimes acting before faster ones. Accuracy at the early stages is annoyingly low, with 1/2 of your hits missing the target until slightly later stages in the game, but fortunately enemies seem to have the same problem. Usualyy though, enemies are too easy,and damage is unbalanced as most enemies will deal very little damage to fighter classes (maybe about 2 or 3 early on) but will deal hefty damage to other classes (as i 80 or 90 at timess) this gets very boring, and causes problems in HP healing.
You have eight levels of magic, for each level you have a different ammount of MP, each spell takes 1 Mp from its relative level, this means that veen in later stages in the game there is shortage in healing magic, making you resort to items to heal yourselves, which becomes quite ridiculous.
Dungeon exploration is a little boring and long- winded as in the early stages of the game you need to walk all the down then all the way back up when wondering through a dungeon.
