It’s a Final Fantasy game! Final Fantasy 2 has all the things you’ve come to expect from the series: music, plot, pretty well-done character designs.. What’s not to like? Well, I’ll tell you. The experience/level system is done away with in FF2, and replaced with a SaGa-like system in which your character only improves in the skills that you actually use. Granted, it’s very different, and you’ll either like it or hate it. I really couldn’t stand it the first time I played the game, but now I actually kind of like it, although it makes the game drag on a LOT in places. Of course, FF2 has numerous things that can be exploited, allowing for all kinds of cheating (some prefer the term “time-savers”) to take place.. such as making an attack and then cancelling it, attacking your own teammates to raise their HP, and.. Well I can’t think of anything else. Anyway, if you like this sort of thing, by all means try it out, since it is definitely a good game.
Neo Demiforce’s Final Fantasy II English Translation Titlescreen Fix
This is an unofficial, independent addendum patch for Demi’s FF2 translation translation done by Demiforce in 1998. If you’ve ever played Demi’s FF2 translation on a modern NES emulator you’ve probably noticed the glitchy graphics that appear instead of the fade effect.
This patch corrects coding errors and makes the titlescreen fade correctly.
