The gameplay is really good. Its a good premise, with certain items needing to be found to unlock a new area, to get new stuff etc. It has a lot of play value in it and you may well find yourself stuck.
I have racked up almost 10 hours of play already on this and I'm only about half way through. If you like your games long and deep there is no better buy than this, especially at this price.
Anyway, this is nothing like other final fantasy games that have fixed characters and extremely long storyline. This game is a bit like Might and Magic that you need to decide your own jobs and character but the stats are fixed though.
One of the bad points about FF games is that they usually have no replay value. Not the version instalment. You can try different combination of the jobs and create your different parties.
Supporting magic is more helpful than later ff games because in later games, your character can be trained so strong that you can hit to damage cap. No way that can happen in FF1.
Bosses are actually tougher because their defences are high enough to nullify your attacks.
You can finish the game about 15 hours and 10 hours if you play it again. I believe you might finish in 5 if you are fast game mania. Therefore, the slightly boring storyline is not much of a concern.
Because you can create you own party and level them up again so it is pretty good for killing time when you are for example, waiting for buses. Near end extra dungeon consist some interesting puzzle levels that are pretty fun to play.
Classic game remake from the past. 4 stars because of boring storyline and old control system.
Here's what I think about the game...
1)Gameplay=9/10. The gameplay may not be as long as some Final Fantsy games and there's not really any side quests on here. In fact there's none at all but it still keeps you wanting to play more and increase your levels. I'm roughly about 10 hours into it and my characters are at level 25. Also the main characters (4 of them) don't have a main name. You just have to make up your own name for them.
2)Graphics=8/10. The graphics aren't exactly PSP graphics because it's a remake but they've made the characters a tiny bit cartoony which is perfect because it doesn't look rubbish in pretty much no way at all.
3)Sounds=9/10. As with any Final Fantasy game it has amazing sounds especially during battle sequences and short video clips where the game is telling you about a certain part of the story. Every city has a different piece of music that goes to it and there all great bits of music that are sure to get stuck in your head when your trying to get to sleep. I don't think there's a single bit of the game that doesn't have sounds unless there's a specific reason as to why it doesn't have sounds.
The first FF game I ever played was X-2 not knowing at the time that it was a sequel of X. I also thought that all the FF games were linked to one story and that all the characters were in every game. So I thought that Yuna, Rikku and Paine had been in every other FF. How wrong I was but yeah overall I would say that this is a must have game if your a fan of FF.
The overhauled graphics definately makes this easier on the eyes but doesn't really add anything to the gameplay which was never expected really. The gameplay is very basic but that's not to say it's bad at all, it's a case of up, down, left, right to navigate the the map and tapping what abilities you need to use in battle, like i say very basic but addictive and very enjoyable.
The game isn't very difficult, you'll probably get into a routine of levelling up a decent amount before entering a story driven cave or anything else that is part of the major plot, this is always a good idea as some of the bosses can be a little difficult so stocking up on consumables, spells and levelling is crucial.
The weakest part of this game is the story and the direction, you'll find yourself more than once trekking all over to find something that you're not really aware of, nothing gets blatently explained so it's basically a case of speaking to everyone in the villages to get more info. The main storyline as well could have been elaborated upon, it's not until later in the game that it actually opens up a little but i won't spoil anything here.
All in all it is a great game remembering it's age but even then it's fun enough to sink your teeth into for 15-20 hours, bring on FF II!
