Before you do anything else, you must decide on a party.  A good party is a 
balanced party in this game.  You'll want someone who is a powerful attacker, 
someone to heal your party, someone who can deal good magic damage, and 
someone who can help out your party in another way.  For this reason I 
recommend a Warrior, White Mage, Black Mage and then another character of your 
choice.  For me it was a Monk but another Warrior might be a good bet.

+-- (______) ORNELIA ------------------------------------------------ 1.01 --+

Welcome to "Final Fantasy," the game that started it all.  The journey of four 
warriors of light to stop some evil force!  Right away you're placed on
the world map with little to no idea of what to do.  Begin by entering the 
town beside you, this is the town of Cornelia.  In Cornelia there are many 
shops you can visit and peruse, a weapons shop to upgrade all of your weapons, 
an armor shop to upgrade your armor and an items shop to pick up some items.  
Thjere are also two magic shops, black magic and white magic.  They each have 
four spells for sale but Black Mages and White Mages can only carry three 
spells per magic level.  I would recommend Fire, Sleep and Thunder for the 
Black Mage, and Cure, Dia and Protect for the White Mage.  When you're ready 
then speak to the soldier on the right side of town and he'll take you to see 
the king.  Your goal is now clear and your destination is the Chaos Shrine to 
the northwest of the village.  Leave Cornelia and fight enemies until your 
party reaches level four, this will be enough to take on the enemies at the 
temple.  Leave the town and make your way northwest, pass the cave in the side 
of the mountain for now and enter the large stone structure just beyond it.

+-- (______) HAOS SHRINE -------------------------------------------- 1.02 --+

Enter the shrine and make a left at the start.  At the lower left corner you 
will find a small room with a single treasure chest inside.  This treasure 
chest contains a Leather Cap.  Continue up from here to reach the upper left 
corner where you will find two chests containing Potion and Tent.  The 
equivalent rooms on the opposite side are sealed and require the Mystic Key, 
so return to the entrance and head straight up to find Garland's room.

|S| The first boss of the game isn't meant to be difficult, you can beat him |
|S| at a level as low as two, personally I would recommend four but it       |
| | really doesn't matter.  Have your Black Mage cast Thunder while every    |
| | other character in your party attacks the boss with physical hits.       |
| |                                                                          |
+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

When the boss has been defeated and you are once again back at the castle, 
speak to Princess Sarah to receive the Lute.  Leave the castle and return to 
town, you will likely need to stay at the inn.  If anyone in your party is 
dead you can revive them at the church.  Leave the town and make your way 
north to reach the bridge.  As you start to cross the bridge a cutscene 
triggers.  Here you will reach a fork in the path where you come across some 
mountains.  Take the right path and follow the shoreline east until it leads 
you south, here you will find the port town of Pravoka.

Welcome to the beautiful town of Pravoka, it is time once again to upgrade all 
your weapons, armor and magic.  The level two black and white magic 
spells are now available, I would recommend Blizzard, Dark and Temper for 
black, and Blindna, NulShock and Invis for white.  When you've got your party 
suited up then head over to the left side of town where you will come across 
three pirates.  These pirates mean business.  Just for speaking to them, nine 
of the pirates attack your party.  Don't worry though, they only have 24 HP 
apiece and will easily fall to your attacks.  Upon defeating the nine pirates 
the main pirate gives up and offers you his ship.  Leave the town (after 
staying at the inn of course) and a pirate ship is outside waiting for you.  
Get on the ship and ride it west until you reach Cornelia, the first town.  
From there continue to guide the boat west off the southern tip and you'll 
eventually hit land.  Follow this coast south, then east, and south staying 
along the coast as much as possible until you reach a dock.  Get off and make 
your way south where you'll find a castle and the village of Elfheim.

Ah Elfheim, village of the elves.  The shops in this town are extremely good, 
especially when it comes to magic.  You will be able to purchase both level 
three and level four white and black magic in this town.  Of course these 
spells are painfully expensive and if you wish to purchase them all right now 
it's going to take likely hours of fighting enemies outside, but no matter.  I 
would recommend just picking up the choice spells, you can always come back 
again.  Cross the bridge above you at the town entrance and you'll see three 
tombstones on the left, be sure to examine them all.  After this you should
leave the town and go the the castle where you'll find the sleeping prince.  
Your new destination is the Western Keep.  Leave the town and make your way 
west under the mountains and north from there, eventually you'll reach the 
Western Keep.  Speak to the king inside and once again be on your way.  Your 
destination is a large hole in the ground at the south tip of the continent.

When you enter the cave head straight up and follow the path until you reach 
some stairs leading down.  Head to the upper right corner and open the 
treasure chest to obtain a Dagger.  Beside it (on your left) you'll find a 
room with 680 Gil inside.  Directly below this room is another containing 
Broadsword and 620 Gil.  That's all you will find down here so climb back up 
the stairs and return to the cave entrance.  This time head down, then go down 
at the fork.  You'll find stairs inside this room leading down, take them.  
Leave the room you appear in and run to the bottom, then right.  You'll find a 
room connecting you to another set of stairs.  On B3F run right as far as you 
possible can then go down, the room beside you has 295 Gil in it.  Leave this 
room and go left, past the first room to the next one.  From here, enter the 
room right below it to find two chests containing Cottage and Phoenix Down.  
Leave this room and go into the left one to get a Copper Armlet.  Now go two 
rooms left and down once, there's 385 Gil inside the chest here.  Now in the 
room on the left there's another chest, but when you step onto the panel in 
front of it a battle will trigger against four enemies.  These enemies are 
extremely difficult and they have powerful physical attacks.  Fortunately they 
have a weakness to Thunder so one cast of the Thundara spell should wipe all 
of them out.  The chest in this room contains the 'Crown.'  Leave the cave 
entirely and return to Elfheim where you can rest and heal your party.  When 
you're ready then return to the Western Keep with the Crown in hand.

|S| Astos has one nasty attack up his sleeve and that's the Death spell      |
|S| which can instantly eliminate one member of your party so be sure you    |
| | have a good number of Phoenix Downs in your inventory.  He also likes to |
| | cast the Fira spell so have your White Mage cast NulBlaze.  Attack with  |
| | physical attacks and the Fira, Thundara or Blizzara spells to win.       |

+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

After the fight you are given the Crystal Eye.  Take it and ride the ship back 
to Cornelia.  Go around the coast to find the bridge that was built and go 
under it.  There's a dock in this area which will allow you to go north and 
reach Matoya's cave.  Inside you'll find three chests containing Antidote, 
Potion and Potion.  When you speak to her she gives you the Jolt Tonic.  Take 
this Jolt Tonic and bring it back to Elfheim Castle.  Use it to wake up the 
sleeping prince in order to acquire the Mystic Key.  With the Mystic Key in 
hand there are a number of things you can do now and many items to get.

There are two treasure rooms in Cornelia Castle, the first has Saber, Mythril 
Knife and Cottage inside the chests.  In the second you'll find Tent, Iron 
Armor and Nitro Powder.  Next head over to the Chaos Shrine northwest of here 
where you'll get Rune Blade, Werebuster and Gold Needle.  Back in Elfheim 
Castle there's a secret room at the upper right.  Enter the castle and head 
right immediately, you can go around the side without actually exiting in 
order to reach it.  There are four chests containing Myhtril Hammer, 800 Gil, 
700 Gil, and Bronze Gloves.  I believe there are also a few chests on the 
lowest floor of the Marsh Cave you just finished.  Regardless, after 
everything is said and done, sail you ship to Cornelia once again.  Follow the 
shoreline west until you reach a dock.  Get off and head southwest until you 
come across a cave.  Save your game and enter the cave beside you.

Directly above you at the beginning is a small room with two chests containign 
575 Gil and 450 Gil.  Make your way down and left, going left at the first and 
second forks until you come across a room with eight chests.  You will get 
Wyrmkiller, Ether, Potion, Mythril Mail, 575 Gil, Cottage, Great Helm and 
Tent.  Speak to the dwarf just outside this room and give him the Nitro 
Powder.  Now that the canal has been blown open, get on your ship and sail 
through it to the west.  You'll find a dock almost immediately, just up a 
little bit.  Forget that whirlpool for now, you'll come back later.

The only thing you can really do in this town is upgrade your magic and 
equipment, but even that is hard to do.  You'll be lucky if you can come close 
to affording that Knight's Armor, and you can't upgrade your magic until you 
reach level nineteen.  Some of the spells even require that you upgrade your 
job classes, but we'll get to that soon.  Once you're ready then leave the 
town and head west then go south at the first chance you get to find the cave.

+-- (______) AVERN OF EARTH ----------------------------------------- 1.09 --+

Directly above the stairs where you start is a path leading to a chest 
containing 1975 Gil.  You'll have to fight an Earth Elemental in order to get 
it, not too difficult, just exploit the weakness to fire.  Return to the 
entrance.  If you would like to acquire copious amounts of money and 
experience, take the left path.  It leads around and starts downward.  On this 
downward path you will encounter Gigas enemies on EVERY panel, it's taxing on 
your strength but the rewards for defeating them are well worth it.  You could 
easily get to level nineteen, high enough to equip those spells, and you'll 
definitely have enough money to afford them.  From the stairs at the entrance 
head right and go down immediately.  At the fork head right and check the room 
for 795 Gil and an Antidote.  Back at the fork go left and down to find two 
chests.  The one on the right is trapped with an Earth Elemental and has a 
Potion, the other has 800 Gil in it.  Once again head back to the entrance of 
the dungeon and go right.  Follow this path until you find some stairs.  On 
the next level, make your way through this mazy area to the upper right 
corner.  Inside the room are three chests containing Coral Sword, Tent and 300 
Gil.  Next head for the bottom-middle-ish area.  There's a path leading down 
to a room with 575 Gil, Leather Shield and 5000 Gil inside.  You'll find the 
stairs leading to the next floor in the lower right corner, but you'll have to 
go back up and loop around a bit to reach them.  On this floor head all the 
way to the right and go into the room to find a chest containing Sleeping Bag.  
Go up and left when you get the chance, you'll pass four rooms.  The first has 
3400 Gil inside, the second is empty, the third has 1020 Gil and the final 
room has the boss.  Be sure to heal up your party in preparation.

Your next destination is the Giant's Cave though you may want to return to the 
town first.  To reach the Giant's Cave it's the same idea as reaching the 
Cavern of Earth, except when heading west from the town, take the second south 
path instead of the first.  Give the gaint the Star Ruby then head down to

Great Axe.  Leave the cave via the stairs at the upper left.  Follow the map 
until you reach another cave, the man inside gives you the Earth Rod.  Now 
take the Earth Rod and bring it ALL THE WAY back to the room where you fought 
the Vampire.  There's a door on the right side leading up to a stone tablet, 
examine it and some stairs appear.  Head up at the fork and follow the path to

fork in this area and head left.  Make your way to the far left wall and head 
down to find a room with lots of battles and three chests containing Tent, 
1250 Gil and Mythril Shield.  From here head for the upper left corner to find 
another set of stairs.  On this floor the boss is located at the lower left 
corner but in order to get there you'll have to go up and around the top.

Step on the warp panel behind the boss to get out of the dungeon.  Return to

however, on the left is a river and you can change directly from the ship into 
the canoe.  Ride the canoe to the southwest until you find a stretch of land 
that eventually leads to the cave.  It's not the cave that is actually on the 
river, like I said, you have to walk across some land first to reach it.

Head right at the start and follow the path around until you find some stairs 
leading down.  The stairs on this floor are located in the lower left corner.  
After that the stairs are right beside you.  Now make your way around to the 
bottom where you'll find a large room with cracks in the floor.  Avoid the 
cracks and open the chests to get Flame Sword and Clothes then fall down one 
of the cracks.  Head left and get the Ice Armor and Mythril Gloves.  Head 
straight down without changing directions and you'll find a room with six 
treasure chests.  Here you'll find 12,350 Gil, 180 Gil, 5454 Gil, 5000 Gil, 
7900 Gil, 9900 Gil.  Next head for the lower right corner where you'll find 
some stairs leading up.  Open the chest to get an Ether, then leave the room 
and head down to the room below.  Inside this chest is 10,000 Gil.  Enter the 
room on the right to find three chests with Sleeping Bag, 9500 Gil and Ice 
Shield.  Now drop down the crack and step in front of the stone.  You'll fight 
the Evil Eye, a boss which will probably go down in a single hit.  Afterward 
grab the Levistone then drop down the cracks.  Return to the room which had 
the three chests in it but don't go inside, instead head past it to the right 
and go up to find some stairs.  This will lead you outside.  Get back to the 
sailing ship and return to Crescent Lake.  From the town go up and get in your 
canoe.  Ride left until the river goes down, then follow it.  At the bottom 
you'll find a small patch of desert, get off on the land beside the river and 
enter the desert to obtain the airship.  Now with the airship in your 
possession you can fly all around the world.  Locate the enormous desert with 
a large tower right in the middle.  At the northeast corner of this continent 
you'll find the town of Gaia.  At the southwest corner is a castle, however 
you cannot land near it.  Put your ship down east of the castle on the other

Speak to the guy and then make your way to the upper left room.  Stand on the

then the next one.  Now you'll have a choice of two.  Take the lower one, then 
the only one.  Now take the lower one and head down to the only one here.  
Take the one on the right, then head over to the right side and get the chest 
in the room containing Gauntlets.  Leave the room and take the path below you,

Above you in the chest you'll find Healing Staff, then over to the left are 
three chests containing Steel Gloves, Ice Brand and Ruby Armlet.  At the 
bottom is 7340 Gil, 1455 Gil and Cottage.  Inside the chest on the right you 
will Rat's Tail.  Before you can leave you will have to fight Dragon Zombie, a 
simple cast of the Firaga spell will quickly end the battle.  South of the 
castle is a hole in an island, and beside that five more holes.  Enter the 
first hole and get the three chests for 2750 Gil, 1455 Gil and 2000 Gil.  
Check each of the holes to eventually find the enormous dragon Bahamut.  The 
Rat's Tail is proof of your courage and with that he upgrades the class level 
of each member in your party.  Now you can purchase those top notch magic 
spells.  Find the enormous desert once again and head to the northeast corner 
of the continent.  There surrounded by mountains is the town of Gaia.

she gives you the Oxyale.  Now leave the town and get into your airship.  Fly 
west until you hit a waterfall and go south from there to find a town in the 
middle of a forested area.  It's a bit of a walk, you'll have to drop your

|S| are weak and his only powerful spell is lightning based which means you  |

At this point there are a couple of things you can do, the first and most 
important is to head to the draves cave (Mount Duergar) where you blew up the 
path in the water (west of Cornelia.)  Give the Adamantite to the dwarf in the 
top room to get Excalibur, the most powerful sword in the universe.  Now at 
this point you can also visit the option dungeon caves, there are a total of 
four of them.  Each of them are randomly geberated with random items, but the 
bosses do not change.  Once you enter you cannot leave until the bosses are 
defeated.  The locations of the four optional caves are as follows:

The Earthgrift Shrine is located northwest of Cornelia, it's the first cave 
you pass on the way to the Chaos Shrine.  The Hellfire Chasm is found in one 
of those many holes you entered when looking for Bahamut to do the job class 
upgrade.  The Lifespring Grotto is that whirlpool located in the water beside 
the dwarf cave, you can't miss it.  Finally, the Whisperwind Cave can be 
foundby taking your canoe to the Ice Cavern and going around to the right 
side, you'll find a cave door directly touching the water there.

Feel free to explore those as you see fit, when you're ready to proceed then 
it's time to head for the final dungeon.  The final dungeon is found by 
returning to the Chaos Shrine, northwest of Cornelia.  Examine the orb there.

| | MARILITH           | HP: 3200   | GIL: 3000 | EXP: 2000 | N/A            |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| Like the Lich, you'll be facing a much more difficult version of this    |
|S| boss.  Watch out for the Firaga spell, be sure to use NulBlaze on your   |
| | first turn to reduce the damage you take and have Healaga ready.         |
| | Believe it or not, Marilith is not weak at all against Blizzaga, in fact |
| | it totally sucks.  Your spell of choice here is Flare and a Warrior      |
| | equipped with the Excalibur and with Haste casted will deal most of all. |
| |                                                                          |
+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Basically your only goal on this floor is to get to the lower right corner.

+-+--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
| | KRAKEN             | HP: 3600   | GIL: 1    | EXP: 2000 | Eye Drops      |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| Begin the battle by having your White Wizard cast the NulShock spell and |
|S| and then as usual, use Haste on your Warrior.  The Black Wizard should   |
| | cast Flare while the White Wizard heals, the Warrior attacks and whoever |
| | else is there does whatever the hell they want until the fight ends.     |
| |                                                                          |
+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Make your way to the lower right corner where you will find the Masamune, a 
weapon to finally make that damn Monk useful.  Head back to the stairs you 
took to get down here and go directly right to encounter the boss.

+-+--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
| | TIAMAT             | HP: 5500   | GIL: 1    | EXP: 2000 | Rune Staff     |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| The most difficult of the newer bosses shouldn't be too much of a        |
|S| problem.  His defense against physical attacks is strong, but the        |
| | Excalibur and even moreso, the Masamune should bring him down quickly    |
| | if both characters have Haste on them.  Cast Protera on your party since |
| | most of the boss' attacks are physical and then... kill it.              |
| |                                                                          |
+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Head down the stairs and run down to the large room at the bottom.  Heal up.

+-+--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
| | CHAOS              | HP: 20,000 | GIL: N/A  | EXP: N/A  | N/A            |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| To be honest, many final bosses in games are disappointing due to a      |
|S| lack of difficulty.  Chaos is not one of them, he is exponentially       |
| | harder than all other bosses in the game.  You will want to be about     |
| | level 50 before taking him on.  Here's how the battle should go.  Your   |
| | White Wizard will use the first three turns to cast NulBlaze, NulShock,  |
| | and NulIce.  Unless you need to heal of course.  Chaos uses magic        |
| | spells of many elements.  Your Black Wizard should cast Haste on your    |
| | Warrior (equipped with Excalibur) and Master (equipped with Masamune)    |
| | or whatever other combination you have.  On the next turns he should     |
| | cast Temper on them and they themselves should use the Giant's Glove     |
| | item which casts Saber on them.  With this, their critical hits should   |
| | deal 1000-1500 damage.  That's a good start.  Put your White Wizard on   |
| | Full Time Healaga and the Black Wizard should use either Flare or items  |
| | depending on your situation.  Keep this up and Chaos will fall.          |
| |                                                                          |
+-+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Congratulations on completing the game.  All that is left is the ending.

| | GARLAND            | HP: 212    | GIL: 250  | EXP: 130  | Longsword      |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| The first boss of the game isn't meant to be difficult, you can beat him |
|S| at a level as low as two, personally I would recommend four but it       |
| | really doesn't matter.  Have your Black Mage cast Thunder while every    |
| | other character in your party attacks the boss with physical hits.       |
| |                                                                          |

| | ASTOS              | HP: 420    | GIL: 2000 | EXP: 2250 | Mythril Sword  |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| Astos has one nasty attack up his sleeve and that's the Death spell      |
|S| which can instantly eliminate one member of your party so be sure you    |
| | have a good number of Phoenix Downs in your inventory.  He also likes to |
| | cast the Fira spell so have your White Mage cast NulBlaze.  Attack with  |
| | physical attacks and the Fira, Thundara or Blizzara spells to win.       |
| |                                                                          |

| | VAMPIRE            | HP: 280    | GIL: 2000 | EXP: 1200 | N/A            |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| This is the easiest boss in the universe, I'm not even sure if he has    |
|S| attacks since he's so weak and crappy that he'll be defeated before he   |
| | has the chance to use them.  Simply do this, physical attack, Diaga,     |
| | Firaga, physical attack.  The boss cannot withstand this one turn.       |
| |                                                                          |

| | LICH               | HP: 1200   | GIL: 3000 | EXP: 2200 | Dry Ether      |
|B|--------------------+------------+-----------+-----------+----------------+
|O|                                                                          |
|S| This boss is only easy if you have an abundance of MP, if not it's       |
|S| going to be very difficult.  Spells like Diaga and Firaga really wipe    |
| | the floor with this boss, but he is practically immune to physical       |
| | attacks meaning that when you run out of MP, you basically run out of    |
| | strategy.  If you cast Haste on your best attacker it can usually        |
| | bring up his damage enough to fight, so do that.  Otherwise just         |
| | rely on the Firaga and Diaga spells in order to win this battle.         |
| |                                                                          |

|S| Watch out for her physical attacks, that's where she'll get you.  Her    |
|S| physical attacks can sometimes deal more than 300 damage to a character  |
| | if they aren't well equipped.  She also has a habit of casting the Fira  |
| | spell so have your White Mage use NulBlaze to weaken it.  After that     |
| | cast Haste on your Warrior equipped with the Ice Brand, then have your   |
| | Black Mage use Blizzara on every turn after that.  Your White Mage       |
| | should cast Protera to raise your party's defense then focus on healing. |
| |                                                                          |

|S| You shouldn't find this boss battle too difficult, the Kraken has an     |
|S| extreme weakness to thunder magic so the Thundaga spell should deall     |
| | well over 400 damage here.  With my Knight with Haste attacking, the     |
| | Black Wizard using Thundaga, the White Wizard using holy, and the        |
| | useless Monk/Master with healing items, the battle was over quick.       |
| |                                                                          |

|S| The massive dragon isn't so massive when it comes to power.  His attacks |
|S| are weak and his only powerful spell is lightning based which means you  |
| | can cast NulShock to reduce the damage.  Since the boss is almost immune |
| | to physical attacks you should just have your Black Mage cast Flare,     |
| | your White Mage cast Holy, and with the other two characters I just      |
| | had them using the Healing Helm items every turn, it worked.             |
| |                                                                          |

|S| This guy is nothing like the first Lich, he's equipped with all sorts of |
|S| powerful magic spells.  Fortunately however his defense against physical |
| | attacks is not too high so cast Haste on your Warrior before letting     |
| | loose with Flare, Firaga, Diaja and Holy magic.  All are effective.      |
| |                                                                          |

|S| Like the Lich, you'll be facing a much more difficult version of this    |
|S| boss.  Watch out for the Firaga spell, be sure to use NulBlaze on your   |
| | first turn to reduce the damage you take and have Healaga ready.         |
| | Believe it or not, Marilith is not weak at all against Blizzaga, in fact |
| | it totally sucks.  Your spell of choice here is Flare and a Warrior      |
| | equipped with the Excalibur and with Haste casted will deal most of all. |
| |                                                                          |

|S| Begin the battle by having your White Wizard cast the NulShock spell and |
|S| and then as usual, use Haste on your Warrior.  The Black Wizard should   |
| | cast Flare while the White Wizard heals, the Warrior attacks and whoever |
| | else is there does whatever the hell they want until the fight ends.     |
| |                                                                          |

|S| The most difficult of the newer bosses shouldn't be too much of a        |
|S| problem.  His defense against physical attacks is strong, but the        |
| | Excalibur and even moreso, the Masamune should bring him down quickly    |
| | if both characters have Haste on them.  Cast Protera on your party since |
| | most of the boss' attacks are physical and then... kill it.              |
| |                                                                          |

|S| To be honest, many final bosses in games are disappointing due to a      |
|S| lack of difficulty.  Chaos is not one of them, he is exponentially       |
| | harder than all other bosses in the game.  You will want to be about     |
| | level 50 before taking him on.  Here's how the battle should go.  Your   |
| | White Wizard will use the first three turns to cast NulBlaze, NulShock,  |
| | and NulIce.  Unless you need to heal of course.  Chaos uses magic        |
| | spells of many elements.  Your Black Wizard should cast Haste on your    |
| | Warrior (equipped with Excalibur) and Master (equipped with Masamune)    |
| | or whatever other combination you have.  On the next turns he should     |
| | cast Temper on them and they themselves should use the Giant's Glove     |
| | item which casts Saber on them.  With this, their critical hits should   |
| | deal 1000-1500 damage.  That's a good start.  Put your White Wizard on   |
| | Full Time Healaga and the Black Wizard should use either Flare or items  |
| | depending on your situation.  Keep this up and Chaos will fall.          |
| |                                                                          |

This review contains traces of slight spoilers and adult language. Be advised.

How the system works:  Gameplay looks at generally how the game plays and how 
enjoyable it would be to someone actually sitting down and playing the game.  
Graphics delve deep into impressive (or unimpressive) visuals you might might 
here.  Music & Sound will obviously look at how the game sounds in terms of 
both effects and musical score.  Control will rate how easy it is to play the 
game in terms of control.  Awesome Factor serves for the most part as the 
tilt, how will Awesome NES Man rate the fun factor of this game?  Read on!

GAME............[08/10] Final Fantasy is the game which starting it all, 
                        the game which brought Squaresoft back from the brink
                        of failure and changed the very genre of RPGs.
                        So now SquareEnix has revamped it and updated the game
                        for the GBA.  It retains all the classic gameplay and
                        fun from the original, which to be honest, isn't 
                        really all that much.  Final Fantasy is a game so 
                        important for what it did, but it's a pretty bland
                        and boring game.  Decent is a good word for it.  You
                        play as the four warrios of light who appear for 
                        some reason to kill some bad guy who is most likely
                        evil.  Along the way you will be sidetracked to do
                        a bunch of pointless shit and before you know it 
                        the game is over.  That is the basic premise.

GRAPHICS........[09/10] The graphics have taken the update well and look 
                        quite good, the models are nice looking for both 
                        characters and enemies.  No complaints.

MUSIC & SOUND...[09/10] All the original music has been remixed, which may or
                        may not be considered a good thing, but in this
                        game's case, it worked out for the better.

CONTROL.........[09/10] What's to complain about, move up, down, left, right
                        blah blah blah.  In battle it may have been nice to 
                        have an auto-battle feature rather than constantly 
                        tapping the button in easy fights but... whatever.

AWESOME FACTOR..[06/10] This game, I must say, is not awesome.  It's good, 
                        entertaining, classic, neat, interesting, and 
                        intruiging... but not awesome.  The characters are
                        about as interesting as a cinder block, with half the
                        personality.  The only reason this game gets a score
                        of six and not negative three is because in the second
                        town you have to beat the fucking shit out of a bunch 
                        of badass pirates and take their sailing ship.  You
                        don't so much take it as the pirate captain wusses 
                        out and gives it to you (minus points here) but you
                        still have to battle pirates.  Hardcore.

FINAL SCORE...[082/100] I take shits more interesting than this game's plot.
