Final Fantasy Adventure (Game Boy) review


" This is probably the best classic Gameboy game ever made. It's story line resembles a book (Elfstones of Shannara), and that there is much detail along the way. You gain many different allies along the way including an Chocobo and a Robot... Plus when you think you have won the game, it turns out that there is so much more. "



This is probably the best classic Gameboy game ever made. It's story line resembles a book (Elfstones of Shannara), and that there is much detail along the way. You gain many different allies along the way including an Chocobo and a Robot... Plus when you think you have won the game, it turns out that there is so much more.

STORY (25/25): Possibly the 5th best storyline in a video game, behind the ever great Final Fantasy series (II, III, and VII) and Ogre Battle 64. This story has twists throughout, and is very detailed with a very surprising ending. I won't give up anything of the story, but trust me that it is still the best story on a Gameboy game.

GRAPHICS (8/10): The graphics are good but not perfect, but it does fit the game nice. There are different backgrounds for the desert, and each character is detailed differently. The spells are kinda weak looking, but this was an 8 bit gameboy game.

SOUND (9/10): Once again the sound is good but nothing that sticks in your head. It does fit well though, as in sad parts you have the sad music in the background, and in the suspensful parts the music fits. The sound effects are all similiar, but the gameboy soundchip could only do so much.

GAMEPLAY (38/40): This is a spot where it differs from almost if not all the rest of the Final Fantasy series. The ''A'' button slashes with your sword, while ''B'' shoots out your magic. This is not turn-by-turn battle system, and at points it gets hectic with multiple enemies on the screen. However you main character can choose from around 10 different types of weapons that will effect each enemy differently, and each has a power-up move. Also unlike the compared Zelda game, you still level up by fighting, and you in no need go to your max level to win the game. You also have partner characters throughout the story who will fight at your side, including a dwarf. All in all there is much to do in this game.

REPLAYABILITY (9/10): This game has around 30 hours of gameplay on it and after you beat it once you will definitely come again. This is one game you are not going to beat once then quit. You will keep coming back to hear the story once more.

CHALLENGE (5/5): Almost the perfect challenge. As long as you keep your level up it is not to hard at all. The battles are all tricky yet doable, and the final boss will also pose a threat. However the mental challenges in this game are a little too easy. There are a good amount of them however to keep you interested.

OVERALL (94/100): Easily a game you should pick up if you find it. This was the last Final Fantasy game for gameboy I picked up, cause I was afraid of the new fighting system. Turns out that Final Fantasy can make an RPG/Adventure game. Trust the Rat on this one, get Final Fantasy Adventure if you have any type of Gameboy. It is definitely a classic.

Rating: 9.3/10

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
