Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Final Fantasy II, which was released in Japan (as Final Fantasy IV) in 1991 and in the U.S. in 2003, set the benchmark for the role-playing genre. Utilizing complex story development and deeper characterizations than previous games, Final Fantasy II tells the story of a malevolent emperor that has called on demonic monsters to take over the world. In the chaos that follows, thousands succumb to their evil attacks until four young, orphaned survivors take it upon themselves to stop the merciless rule and avenge the deaths of their parents.

This Super Nintendo-platform reissue includes new cinematic movies, opening theme songs, event scenes (including updates of the original event sequences), enhanced graphics, improved sound quality, as well as new game-play modes, making the game accessible to beginners and veterans alike.

Product Description

Second chapter of the ultra popular Final Fantasy series, for the Super Nintendo console. Hard to find, often out of print original US version.

As has been noted by other reviews, this was the most influential of the Final Fantasy games to the rest of the series. This was the first game to develop a plot through textual descriptions and dialogue. This was the first to have a plot that contained honest-to-goodness character development. In fact, the conflict faced by Cecil in dealing with his past wrongs and the sins of his family is probably the most rounded character that the Final Fantasy series has produced. In addition, this was the first game to include the pseudo real-time battles, the summoned spirits, and the emphasis on over the top spells. While Final Fantasy III/6 would later develop some of these features even further, this game contains their first and in some ways best incarnation. I have played many RPG's over the years, and this is easily one of my two or three favorites, and the best of this generation of consoles. If you haven't played it yet, you it to yourself to discover where the Final Fantasy series came from.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite Final Fantasies! June 6, 2003
Format:Video Game
If the original Final Fantasy (NES) first got me interested in RPGs, it was Final Fantasy II that got me hooked. FFII was really the 4th game in the series, but was only the second to make it to the United States. As opposed to the first game, this one had a story and well defined characters and the whole thing just sucked me in.
This game had one of the most interesting stories I had seen in a game up until that time. You control Cecil, a Dark Knight serving under the King of Baron. After taking Crystals from the magician village of Mysidia, Cecil questions why he is doing this, taking the Crystals from innocents. He is sent to deliver a package to the Village of Mist. Opening the package, the village is destroyed. Cecil now works in opposition to Baron to try to save the Crystals and not allow Baron to get them all. During this quest, the stakes get larger as Cecil learns of what is really going on. Some of my favorite characters in the series are in this game: Golbez, Kain, Rydia, Rosa, FuSoYa, Edge, Yang, the Twins. The cast of playable characters is large as characters come in and out of your party. Some Final Fantasy staples are included in this game (Summoned Monsters, a guy named Cid, Airships, Chocobos).
The game is simply fun to play, and remains one of my favorites of the series,

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As much as I love this game, it is no where near perfect. If you are a fan of SNES-era RPGs, I would consider this a must-play, and almost certainly a must-own. If you are simply a fan of RPGs or the Final Fantasy series, I would recommend either of the two Nintendo-console remakes--Final Fantasy IV Advance for the GBA Advance or Final Fantasy IV DS for the NDS. Both games have superior translations as well as the readdition of items and spells which were removed from the game when it ported from the Super Famicom to the SNES. Their graphical styles are different, however, as well as their "bonus content" and difficulty (the GBA game feels easier than even the SNES version--largely due to the extra content--while the NDS game is harder than both).

I heartily advise against the PSX version of the game, which has abominable load times and an unremarkable translation.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Final Fantasy Game! April 6, 2005
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Although this game is called Final fantasy 2, in reality it is actually FF4! Anyway, I didnt start playing Final fantasy until just recently (2004)I've owned an NES since 1990 but I never even thought of buying Final Fantasy until I saw a TV show about it on G4TV! Since then, I've played all of the following Final fantasy titles; Final fantasy, Final fantasy II, Final fantasy mystic quest, Final fantasy VII, Final fantasy VIII, Final fantasy XI, Final fantasy I & II dawn of souls, and Final fantasy IV Advance. Out of all of them my favorite title was FFII for the SNES,why? Because FFII had the best story and charecters of all of the other Final fantasy titles that I've played so far! Unlike in FF1,you dont choose your players, you just start out as one and meet more from there!

The Heros: Cecil the dark knight, Rosa the white mage, Kain the dragoon, Cid the Engineer, Yang the Monk, Rydia the summoner, tellah the sage, Edge the ninja, and Fusoya the sage.

The Villans: Golbez the dark wizard, 4 Elemental warriors, a brain-washed Kain, and a slew of other enemys each more sinister then the last!

The story gets better and better as the story progresses! I wont spoil it for you,but one of the coolest moments in the game is when Cecil discovers that Golbez, the most fearsom fiend in the game is not the one behind all of the chaos! Plus, Golbez's true identity is revealed! (No, he's not Cecil's father.) All and all this is my favorite Final fantasy so far, I highly recomend buying it! BUT BE WARNED! Final fantasy I & II dawn of souls does not include this title! So if you want to play this and FF1 you'll have to buy them both!
For more details read my Review on Final fantasy I & II dawn of souls. ENJOY!

Final thoughts: If you have the money and own a GBA, check out Final fantasy IV Advance. It's the same game as this one, but it's been upgraded with all new features!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd best game July 13, 2001
Format:Video Game
i think ff2 is the 2nd best game besides ff1 on the nes for anybody who has played it will understand. this game is so fun that you can beat it over and over with out getting bored. I will never plan to sell this game because it is so rare now and it is pretty much priceless. the music in the battles is awesome and it is way better to have random battles then to see your opponent coming to attack. random battles provide you with the chance to level up for ever. most beg rpg players like to run away from monsters and therefor they do not gain levels and can not move on in the game. so basically the graphics are awesome the music is boss and the gameplay is priceless and the story line almost matches up to final fantasy 3. the only thing that could make the game better is the cute and adorable mog.

1.0 out of 5 stars No good!
Game was in bad shape. The cover looked ok, but you can't play the cover. About 20 min into the game it froze. The game makes a good paperweight though.
