Final Fantasy II PSP Unsealed
Final Fantasy II is the ultimate revival of the second game in a phenomenon. Remastered exclusively for the PSP system this allnew edition features updated character art updated graphics new dungeons full 16:9 widescreen presentation and an updated camera view that gives players a new vantage point on such a timeless classic RPG. In Final Fantasy II a malevolent emperor has called upon monsters from a demonic realm to take over the world ending what seemed to be an eternal period of peace...
Refined graphics over the predecessor with fine attention to detail as you see muscles flex and facial expressions. Tough AI for the opponents with combos being limited in the number of identical techniques that can be repeated providing a zen master level challenge. Thankfully the specials are not too tricky to execute with simple button/direction combinations well suited to the PS pad.
Containing some of the Final Fantasy VII characters ensured plenty of attention to Ehrgeiz's 3D fighting action. Each pugilist has a different attribute special move: be it a traditional projectile, a wieldy weapon or transforming into an animal. Includes a quest mode where you enter the dungeons to fight through various rooms - getting well stocked at the village store is advisable before descending. There are also some mini games which act as a nice diversion from the beast pummelling action.
Square's underated opus is perhaps a little short, but its bitterly sweet with Biohazard moments of fleeting fear mingled with Final Fantasy style roleplaying mechanics. But the eerie sense all is not well gnaws away at you throughout the twisted and at times unhinged story.
