"This may not be FF, But its still the coolest GB game!!!"
Definatly worth every penny! If you have a little extra money, go for it. Its a wise idea to buy it before the game is a collector's item and only found on Yahoo or E-Bay. I dont know how much longer this game will be found in stores.
This game is similar to the original Legend of Zelda for the NES. Loads of weapons to pick from, lots of spells from the original Final Fantasy (also NES) and the battle system is very unique. Like i said the battle system is like Zelda except you lvl. up in the process.
For GameBoy, the graphics were very good. If you play it on GBC, it just adds more to the effect. Its recomended to play it on GBC. But on GB its still OK! The way they animated the weapons was kinda cool if you think about it.
This is the weaker part of the game. But keep in mind the GameBoy never had really good sound. Plus its old. But the sound is still OK. Especialy when you ride a chocobo. It has the old Chocobo theme on it.
Just like all the other Final Fantasy games the stories have no conection with each other. The story is about a dark king that is bent on taking over the world. Using the power of the mana tree will accomplish this task. Thats all im gonna say because i dont want to ruin the story for you.
Basic controls. Nothing to complicated about them. A attack, B equiped item or spell. Just at first the controls realy suck but youll get used to them. Dont worry.
There is no extra weapons but if you sit down and play it again, youll want to play it alot more. Its very adicting and if you are looking a way to spend time, play this!
Rent or Buy?
Well i highly doubt that a video store would have this on the shelves. Buy it. i got it for $15 and its worth evry penny like i said before. If you cant find this game anywhere, look at Gamestop or order it online. If your a Final Fantasy fan, this is a must have game. While your look ing, try playing Final Fantasy Legends. That is also a good game for GameBoy and am excellent FF title.
If you have an extra $15 bucks, buy this. Well I hope this review will help you!!!
