Product Information
The two-game collection that almost completely remakes the original Final Fantasy, and the formerly Japan-only release Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy Origins for PlayStation One is one of the most in-depth Sqare remake collections yet. Revamped graphics and added event scenes further engross the player in the emotional storyline. Saving is no longer restricted to certain locations with the addition of the Memo File function. Multiple gameplay modes allow players to customize game difficulty when beginning a new quest. CG movies and stills have been added throughout the game, taking the story to new cinematic heights. Improved sound quality, new opening themes, and an added art gallery deepen the game experience.

    Final Fantasy Origins

    All information was copied from wikipedia, respectively. (As they're smarter than I am.)

    SquareSoft's console role-playing games, Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II have been rereleased several times in collective works which include both games.

    Final Fantasy I•II is a compilation of two Square Co. console role-playing games for the Nintendo Family Computer: Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. As both games had originally appeared on the Famicom, there were few substantial changes between the originals and the compilation versions. Final Fantasy I–II was the last cartridge Square released for the Famicom, in early 1994, and was released in a limited edition box including various bonuses, such as maps and hint books. The compilation was never officially released outside of Japan.

    PlayStation versions of the two games were released in Japan in 2002 by Square. Each game was either sold separately, or combined in the form of the Final Fantasy I & II Premium Package, a special edition collection which included both games as well as three collector's figurines. This collection, without the special packaging and figurines, was next published as Final Fantasy Origins in Europe by Infogrames in 2003. Later in the same year, the two games were combined onto one disc and released in North America by Square Enix under the same name. It was the first time either game had been officially released in Europe, and the first time Final Fantasy II had been officially released in North America.

    The PlayStation remakes were later put onto the same cartridge when they were ported to the Game Boy Advance as Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls. The port featured similar graphics / sound to the Playstation version (though slightly inferior due to the Game Boy Advance's capabilities). The Game Boy Advance version of Final Fantasy contains four extra dungeons featuring bosses from later Final Fantasy titles, plus a few gameplay tweaks (including an MP system and easier difficulty setting). This version of Final Fantasy II included an extra side-story after finishing the game but the overall gameplay was not altered from the PlayStation version.

    Reception and Criticism

    As of August 31, 2005, Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls has sold 290 thousand units in Japan, 500 units in North America, and 150 thousand units in Europe. Most reviewers applauded Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls as one of the most successful retro packs of recent years, lauding the enhanced graphics, features and gameplay. Others believed that the games had aged badly and listed the changes in difficulty as a major weakness of the package. GameSpot awarded the package 7.2 out of 10, stating that "though each game is showing its age a bit, the combined package is still worthwhile for old-school RPG fans and patient neophytes." It was rated the 76th best game made on a Nintendo System in Nintendo Powers Top 200 Games list. IGN rated the game at 8.5, saying that the games play "brilliantly" even years after their initial release. Gamespy called the gameplay "primitive" by Gameboy Advance standards, but held up remarkably well and was still lots of fun. The Playstation release was given a 9.0, or "Outstanding", citing the extensive improvements made to the games and the many new options added to them.

    it all started here...

    Final Fantasy. So named because if it hadn't taken the gaming world-- at least the gaming world in Japan-- by storm, there would be no more Square. Graphics 9: Each of the characters are shown with great detail, they even have art work you can get while going through the game, along with the monsters you come across. The towns have a new look to them also, with each of the npc's with great detail too. The detail they put into the background was really amazing compared to the older one. The magic has been well designed too. The monsters are more of a wide variety also, even though you will run into the same enemy just different colors. The land seems to be detailed well too, because they are true colors instead of just random colors the system can handle. Game play 10: For Final Fantasy the battles are like they used to be - turn based. But unlike Final Fantasy II, FF has the leveling system, which you should be used to. They have two different kinds of magic's white, which is the curative magic, and black which is more of an elemental damage magic. Another set of characters is the monk, whom goes against everything, unlike a warrior this type of character can have better attack and defense without having any items equipped to them. The warrior is one of the most basic characters which are one of the best. He can equip any item and still be strong. Along with these is a thief, whom you can have run from enemies. But they have nowhere near the attack of the warrior, all they seem good for is luck and their speed, but with that luck and speed they can help you escape from battles easier. When you advance farther in the game you can have these characters upgrade, which will make their stats go up. In the beginning of FF II you notice there are four different characters running from their town which has been set on fire, they are the four main characters you see. The first one I will mention is Firion he was orphaned at a young age, he was adopted by the parents of Maria and Leon, and he grew up with them and considers them his real family. Maria is Leon's sister, Leon goes a separate path at the beginning of the game and you are to track him down. The last one is Gus, he was a childhood friend of the three and he tends to use his muscles more than he does his brain, he is one of the strongest of the group, but he isn't very bright. Unlike FF this game has actual characters to fit a story line, which can be a good thing. In FF II there are no levels you gain more status as you move on with the game. But like FF there is the same kind of magic, you buy it and you can equip it to anybody in this game really. But there are not separate classes in this game so it goes with who gets it first keeps it. They all have their own sort of weapons. The battling isn't much different than any other FF except you don't get any experience at the end of the battle. Sound 10: The sound is really great in this game. The soundtrack on FF is better than of FF II in my opinion. The voice acting on the FF II video was really good and the rest of the noises where okay. This is a really great game and if you don't have it I highly suggest that you go out and buy it.

    a classic! but make sure you have a PS1 memory card...

    I've never played any of the Final Fantasy games before, but lately I've been picking up old PS1 games for family-play on our PS2.

    As loyal readers of 8-Bit-Theater, my boy and I are already familiar with (a brilliantly satirized version of) the characters, world, and story-line of FF1, so getting to actually play this low-tech classic ourselves is a blast.

    The graphics are fairly minimal (despite having been upgraded during the port to PS1), some of the menu mechanics are a bit clunky, and all of the palace guards all say the same thing over and over (to which my boy and I always reply, "I like swords!"), but the raw retro of this primeval work is what we are looking for...

    Well, what It's what _I'm_ looking for, at least. Seven-year-olds don't really have a nostalgia base to work from. For him, it's an straightforward adventure game with easy-to-learn controls, where he gets to level up fighting monsters using characters he already knows and loves.

    We bought the game for FF1, so I don't have much to say about FF2. I'm sure the "revered artifact of gaming history" aspect of it will be very educational, for both of us.

    In any case, like many PS1 games played on a PS2, you will need to have a PS1 memory card in order to save your games. I've run into this issue before, on games that I don't bother saving (e.g. the original WipeOut), but since this isn't a single-sitting game, a memory card is a must.

    At the time of this writing, a 1MB (aka "15 block") PS1 Memory card runs about $5, once S&H is worked in, so be sure to factor that in to your calculations, if you don't already have one.

    OKAY I GUESS

    GAME: Final Fantasy Origins (Final Fantasy 1 + 2)
    CREATORS: Square Enix (www.square-enix.com)
    RELEASED: USA: 8/4/2003 / EURO: 14/3/2003


    INFO:

    Final Fantasy Origins consisted of 2 games in 1 (Final Fantasy 1 and Final Fantasy 2).
    The Japanese got their Final Fantasy 1 + 2s for the Playstation One but unlike America and Europe it wasn't called Final Fantasy Origins.
    Final Fantasy Origins meant that for the first time ever after 22 years of Japan receiving Final Fantasy I for NES and 21 years after they got Final Fantasy II for NES, Europe finally got their hands on Final Fantasy I and II.
    USA got Final Fantasy I back in July 12, 1990 on NES.


    FINAL FANTASY I:

    Square Enix was rather a low company everything they created got booed and hissed at, Square where at a make or break situation almost bankrupt.
    Final Fantasy I was to be what could be either Squares end or Squares life line.
    Luckily they released the game and the public was amazed from there on Square is popular and amongst the best games companies ever (thank god, they are the best really :) )

    Anyway the Origins version of Final Fantasy I featured rather the same graphics as the Nes version the Japanese and Americans got, which was a shame.

    The music was good although not up todays standards but back when NES was in its prime it was rather good music.

    The game featured 4 characters in which you could name whatever you pleased (Buthead if you wanted to) and you would assign the characters with specific job roles such as, Red Mage (spell caster that could cast both Black and White magic), Black Mage (spell caster with black elemental spells), White Mage (spell caster casts healing type spells), Warrior (basic fighter) and other jobs where also available.

    STORYLINE:

    The storyline was about collecting Crystals in order to save the world.

    MY OPINION:

    Most including I found it to be a really difficult game without a map, as it doesn't really point directions out to you clearly enough so without a map your left guessing where to go next.

    I found it very short but its just the NES version on a Playstation really and games back then where short.

    I really wouldn't recommened it now unless you are like me (a Final Fantasy collector) or an old school type gamer, as its short, the graphics are NES type (80s style), fustrating and annoying at times.


    FINAL FANTASY II:
    Unlike Final Fantasy I this game consisted of characters that had names.
    The battle system was completely different compared to Final Fantasy I, in Final Fantasy I you just killed enemies in order to level up, this time you had to level up all the required skills either by getting hit most during which in turn would raise Health Points, use spells a lot during battle which would raise Magic Points, using the same weapon over and over would level your weapon up.

    Magic spells could also be leveled, use the same spell over and over to turn that spell from Cure 1 to Cure 2 thus when used it would heal your party better giving them more health than Cure 1 did.

    Again the graphics wheren't at the standard of the Playstation despite being a Playstation version, so again it was NES graphics.

    The music was okay if NES was still in its prime but todays standards make it sound awefull.

    This game was the first to feature Chocobos.

    STORYLINE:

    Our heroes want revenge on the army that brought destruction and sadness
    Tis all I'm saying :X

    MY OPINION:

    Same as number I

    Two Classic RPGs

    Final Fantasy Origins contains both Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. Both of the games feature enhanced graphics and sound. Overall, both games are more colorful and look much better than the originals. If you are not familiar with either of the two games, they are both classic RPGs and are must haves for fans of the genre. Since these games are both quite old, they are simple compared to today’s RPGs, so they are not for everyone.
    The original Final Fantasy is pretty bland by today's standards. The story and the gameplay are both simplistic, but for fans of the series you have to play it. Final Fantasy II is a great old school RPG. It is a lot more complex then the original in terms gameplay, and the story is a little more involved. The combat for both of the games is turn based like the majority of Final Fantasy games. The one complaint I have about this game is that it takes a few seconds to load the menu screen (in the original versions it would come up almost instantly), but this is only a minor complaint although it can get annoying.

    If you are a fan of old RPGs or just want to see where the series began, you should definitely get Final Fantasy Origins.

    Pros:
    - Two great Final Fantasy games in one
    - Includes Japanese FFII
    - Features updated graphics and music

    Cons:
    - Does not appeal to younger gamers
