Game Description & Reviews:
Long ago, the ancient gods possessed a powerful force called The Magi. But they later split it into 77 different pieces and scattered them throughout nine different worlds. You've been given one of those pieces. And now, along with your band of chosen warriors, you journey through each world searching for the rest of the pieces and your long-lost father. You face danger at every turn. But if you make the right decisions, you can conquer each world and recover all the pieces of The Magi. Get ready for a daunting adventure, filled with unexpected surprises and perils.
This game I found to be a little better than the first Final Fantasy Legend, but not by much.
The difficulty level for this game was "okay". I found the fights to be pretty tough to beat, but they're manageable, especially if you stop to level up frequently.
The dungeons I'll have to admit are pretty cool, they're rather complex maps and they're actually enjoyable to go through.
The major downfall to this game would have to be its characters and storyline. They lacked immensely, as the whole object of the game seemed rather unoriginal and a bit pointless. It also jumped from thing to thing way too much. Like for a moment you're focused on Ashura, as though the world revolved around him, next you're in this other town, completely forgetting Ashura, and now worried about this group of bandits. It's rather annoying, as any story that actually begins is so short lived and you don't really get to enjoy it.
To my understanding, the Final Fantasy Legend series is sort of a spin-off of the original final fantasy, and won't follow suit too well with the numerical series. To be honest, I'd recommend to steer clear of this game to save your sanity and frustration, and go after the real Final Fantasy titles. If you only have a Gameboy to play on, however, and you really want to play a final fantasy, then I'd recommend you try Final Fantasy Legend III, as its the best out of all 3 and the closest to the real thing.
