A video game collection in blog form… a constant work in progress
Final Fantasy Origins
The last compilation Final Fantasy game on the PS1, Origins collects the first two Final Fantasy titles. Much like Final Fantasy Chronicles before it, Origins features enhanced graphics and a remixed soundtrack. Unfortunately it also retains the long load times. The first Final Fantasy is a gem of an RPG, and it’s worth playing for enjoyment and historical significance as well. FFII was a surprise for me, as I thought it was much more compelling than the first. Both games included here have been ported to a handful of other devices which are actually better versions of the game. Notably the newer versions include extra dungeons and much more reasonable load times. Still though, this is a solid port of the games and worth checking out.
