Being the second game in Square's Wonderous Final Fantasy series, this game was like no other. The game offered it's player to explore many strange lands, expanding the horizon for future RPG's. Without the inovation that square put into this game, we may not have such great games today as Final Fantasy VIII, Shenmue, or even Zelda. Final Fantasy II gave a new meaning to RPG's,becoming an instant classic, and should be played by all, old and young. Screenshots: Battle Scene · Castle · World Map The Empire of Barmekia is on a mad quest to enslave the world. The only ones who can stand in their way is Queen Hilda of Phin's small Resistance movement. But thrown out of their castle, and with the clock ticking, can anything be done? Four young orphans, Frionel, Maria, Guy, and Lionheart, are the world's last chance for freedom. Your treacherous journey takes you to all parts of a strange new world. Explore dangerous castles and dark caverns where deadly perils and great rewards await at every turn. Hundreds of ferocious monsters block your back path. With patience, skill, and cunning you can defeat them. This was one of the first RPGs which featured a party you could build. At first, the game seemed like your ordinary "save your princess mission". But, once the princess in saved, this becomes a full fledge RPG with all the quests and sub-quests you will need. You must defeat the four Elementals and Chaos. Most people say since a game is on the original Nintendo, the graphics don't have to be good. I tend to disagree. I've seen the other Japanese Final Fantasy game on Nintendo and the graphics are good. For the first Final Fantasy game, the graphics are pretty good but the NES still had a lot of untapped potential. Could this game be even better? You shape the future of your team. You choose where to go. You choose which spells you want. You choose what character to use. I think this game is great. It's a good return to the classic.
