Final Fantasy 2: why all the hate?
« on: May 09, 2008, 21:09 »
I don't understand all the hate directed toward this game. Sure, It may not be as good as FF legend 2, Romancing saga 1-3 or both Saga Frontiers, but it's still a damn good game. as far as leveling up weapons and magic goes, just don't give everything to everybody. In other words, customize.

My party:

Firon: dual swords; cure, holy, ultima

Guy: spear and axe; status spells and cure

Maria: bow and arrow or variable weapons; Black magic and cure

Leon: spear and blood sword; flare, holy, cure and bio.

But enough from me, what about you?

I played Final Fantasy II on PlayStation a couple of years ago, but then I had a long pause from playing it. Even though it was a good game, I just had played so many RPGs I got bored of them. I started playing it again last month and it was great. :)

My party (haven't got Leon yet):

Firion: sword and spear

Maria: sword and dagger

Gus: fists

I use some curing spells with every character.

It's good to see another FF 2 fan posting here!  :lol:

What kind of magic did you have on each of them?

I don't use magic very much. Here's what my characters have:

Firion: Cure, Life, Warp
Maria: Cure, Life, Esuna
Gus: Cure, Life, Warp

Did they remake this for the PSOne, Chaos? I think it was Anthology or something. I didn't get the mumbo-jumbo technicalities as the other forum, so what's with this title that makes it so bad/misunderstood, etc.?

It was in Origins with FF1.

It gets it mostly for it's level up system, which isn't really that bad.

It was square's experiment in stat/ability customization, which later showed up in FF5-12.
