Has anyone played this yet? Final Fantasy 1 remains one of my favorite games of all-time, and with the additions, I'm wondering if it's good enough to buy the game, seeing as I've never played FF2 and probably wouldn't have much interest in it. Any insights would be appreciated.

FF1 is one of your favorite games? Wow, I tried playing it(NES) years ago and just couldn't get into it. I know it would probly be different if I played it while it came out, but Dragon Warrior seems like a much better game than FF1.

I did buy this! but I'm only playing 2 so far. I too played 1 back in the day, but could I think it was after playing - uh, "4" - and was annoyed by the slow battles (which is supposedly fixed), high enemy encounter rate (which isn't fixed) and your protaganists being identity-less.

I've read that 1 is close the same version they rereleased on Playstation a while back. IGN mentions the ability to save anywhere and an additional tough dungeon as some of the gameplay changes in both game.

It's certainly an improvement.....I remember in the NES version of 1, I always had to spend around an hour or so building everyone up to level 3 to fight Garland. In this version, I got to level 3 on the walk up to his castle

Magic's also been improved, in that you're no longer limited to four or so shots of it.....rather, you're given a standard MP system.....on the flip side, gold seems a lot harder to come by. I do NOT remember being completely broke by the time I reached Pravoka in the NES version >_<

I tried it out before buying (arrrrrrr!), and the FF1 remake is a nice bit of fluffy nostalgia. Haven't gotten into the extra dungeons yet, but the "main quest" was still entertaining, and a portable version is nice.

Haven't played it, but your review of the game is one of several overwhelmingly positive reviews I've heard... so I'll have to check this mother out. Even though I'm not normally a fan of fighter pilot games.
