Definitive NES version

Reviewed By: Rodimus Primal on 25 Feb 2014

While newer versions released on other consoles is nice, there’s a sense of nostalgia with the NES version. This hack fixes all the problems I had with the US release (ugly looking battle screen, not a real title screen, unneeded censorship, etc) and cleaned up the translation nicely. I love the B Button dash as well as the increased battle speed.

My only gripe with this is the font. I would have preferred something closer to the original within space constraints, plus the gray shadows make it hard to read sometimes. Also, it may be me, but I do notice that the characters miss a lot more often in battle then in the original, but that could be just me.

I do recommend this for anyone who wants to play the NES version of Final Fantasy as its intended.
