FF: Dawn of Souls is the ORIGINAL FFI and II crammed into one cartridge--only one--with improved graphics, sound and bonus levels and dungeons and a detailed bestiary. Imagine--taking two of the most important games to the RPG genre with you anywhere. I remember wishing I could do that when I was in elementary school!

Let me start off with graphics. Now, I've read a review or two commenting on the graphics for these games, noting that they're nothing special, if not downright disappointing. Let me say that I've played the original FF and these graphics are head and shoulders above that. Considering that it's a GBA, the sprites are bright and crisp, and as my wife likes to point out "cute," and there's also beautiful cutscenes at various points in the story. Then, consider the depth and scope of this game with all the added improvements, and this becomes quite the accomplishment. The music, also, is an upgrade, with orchestral MIDI sounds, as opposed to the 8-bit sound of the original. You can tell that a lot of time and effort went into remaking this classic.

But the real meat of this game is gameplay. The FFI lacks the deep storyline that most gamers are used to, but it's still a compelling, fun game. And it's FFII where the idea of story and character development comes into play, and it makes for an fun, nostalgic experience on the GBA. This game will take away hours of your life and, if you enjoy RPGs, it will be worth it.

The only negative for this game is difficulty level. FFI is easier and faster than the original (at least as far as I remember), with level increases coming along quite quickly, with stats rising at a very fast rate. Not a deal-breaker by any means, though.

Last year saw the release of Final Fantasy Origins on PSOne. A compilation pack of the first two Final Fantasy titles, the second of which had been previously unavailable in America, Origins gave gamers the chance to play through the first two entries in the series with a new coat of paint. Featuring updated graphics, full motion video cutscenes, several optional gameplay tweaks and more, Origins carefully walked the fine line of pleasing both veterans and newcomers to the games. With Dawn of Souls, Square continues to refine the old classics.

As with Origins, the versions of Final Fantasy 1 & 2 present in Dawn of Souls are based off the Japan-only WonderSwan Color remakes. This time around, the scripts were re-written and numerous additions and tweaks to the games themselves were made. Most noteworthy of these changes is the ability to save anywhere outside of battle, an important feature in a handheld RPG.The focus of Final Fantasy 1 is less on the story and more on exploration and fighting. Those that have played prior versions will note that the GBA edition is more balanced in that it doesn't require players to stop and level up their characters to survive the next dungeon, resulting in a much more streamlined experience. The flipside is that the revamped FF1 ends up lacking the challenge of past iterations, a virtual cakewalk for those familiar with the game. The only real challenge is in the form of the four new dungeons. These randomly generated dungeons, which feature bosses from Final Fantasy 3-6, reward players with rare and powerful items once cleared. With each dungeon unlocked after the defeat of the respective Chaos, some may find themselves questioning if it's even worth the time and effort to reach the new content.

Recently, alot of Old school games have been remade for the GBA, but to my personal dismay, almost all of them have returned unchanged. This Game however, has been beautifully restored with updated Graphics! Old-School fans BEWARE! Although the classic FF1 has been Restored, the FF2 That Old-School fans know & love is not present, WHY? Well, that requires a back-story, the game that was know as FF2 is actually FF4! Back in 1985 Japan, SQUARE made the game Final Fantasy for the Famicom system or as it is know in the US, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Although SQUARE believed that this would be their failing company's last title before they went bankrupt due to the sucsess of larger corporations such as CAPCOM. But to SQUARES surprise Final fantasy was a huge hit in Japan! Years & many sequils later, Nintendo of America decided to bring this popular game to the states, but by that time (1990) Five Final fantasy titles already existed in Japan. So instead of bringing all five titles to the US at once they only brought FF1 to the states, needless to say it was a huge sucsess! Nintendo wanted a sequil,but by that time they were all set to launch the Super Ninteno (SNES) so instead of bringing the old NES version of FF2,they decided to bring the latest Final Fantasy game FF4 for the SNES to the US. But if they called it FF4 this would confuse all of the gamers waiting for a sequil, so they called FF4 Final fantasy 2. So I warn all lovers of FF2 that FF1&2 dawn of souls does not contain the version that they're used to playing!

Good Points: Upgraded Graphics, Updated sound, New Baddies & Weapons, and All New Bonus Dungeons, and an all new FF title!

Bad Points: Although Final Fantasy 2 is good, it is not as entertaining as Final Fantasy 4.

Update: A remake of Final Fantasy 4, (Final Fantasy IV Advance) was released in US stores on 12/12/05 for the GBA & GBM!
