This portable remake--the 20th, I think--of the first Final Fantasy is one of said acquisitions.
Tose-developed rehash of Square Enix's classic RPG:
1. I really like its cover art (see image to the right),
2. I kind of like what I've seen of this version's higher-resolution graphics (despite the fact that I'm a huge fan of the chunky sprites found in the NES original), and
3. It was an absolute steal, setting me back less than $10 (including shipping).
I'm sure some of you are wondering, How many times can you play through the same, old game? I'm not sure how to answer that question, to tell you the truth, as I've played through the original Final Fantasy many, many times over the years and I'm still not sick of it.
That said, it'll be interesting to see if I make it to the end this time around or if I stop somewhere short of the credits. Regardless, I'll get as far as I can and then work up a review of it that lets you know if I consider it to be a worthy remake or a waste of your time and money.
