FINAL FANTASY II
FINAL FANTASY II is highly anticipated follow-up to the original FINAL FANTASY, released in Japan in 1988.
The game features the bitter and beautiful tale of four war-orphaned heroes who become embroiled in a conflict between the hostile Empire of Palamecia and the rebel resistance. By eschewing conventional leveling for a proficiency system that allows players to tailor their characters' growth and incorporating a key term memory system that makes dialogue integral to gameplay, this game sparked the spirit of innovation for which the series has become known.
This release also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game--the Soul of Rebirth and the Arcane Labyrinth.

Korean language support added.
Slow and Inconsistent
This game has a good story for its time and can be read today pretty well. I am updating this review to state it is a waste of time even when you know about dead zones to avoid and using scott's ring as the world map (by holding the status popup screen that appears when outside and not moving).
The arcane dungeon is a nice add-on since you can explore and do side quests rather than blindly grind; you get new words to access new floors designed like these words (such as an airship level if you use the word airship); it is very unique and I recommend quitting after you beat the 1st two with Josef in your party.
The good parts of this game end with the story, and arcane dungeon; the temporary 4th character adds some variety until you see how lazy the random encounters are.
This is because you fight the same enemies or palette swaps in multiple dungeons, making difficulty inconsistent or repetitive based on if the arcane dungeon made you too strong.
To make this doubly painful, you can't speed up these easy battles against the same enemies unlike with Final Fantasy Dimensions' auto-battle. This is a horrible catch-22 and the only reason I give it 2 stars is due to the arcane dungeon which was enjoyable.
A little disappointed in Square
This is a classic and the touch controls are good so I gave it 3 stars. However this port had some pretty big flaws. Worst of them is that it crashes when u switch to any other app. So annoying. Soooooooooo annoying. Did I mention how annoying this is? No multitasking with this game at all. U have to save and exit unless u want to lose ur progress. Other than that it's just a gba port from what I can tell. It's nowhere near as good as the play station version. Also u can't do an all attack command. Square had just gotten really lazy man. All I can figure.
Needs some updates
First off it's a classic. Decent port but it's not worth it's normal price on the store really. I waited for a sale and got lucky. Doesnt fit the iphone 5 screen.
Still some translation issues. They localized it years ago and there are still grammar problems.
The game completely resets if i get a call or hit my hone button. I have games with twice the graphic capability on here that don't have problems with this. This is my biggest complaint honestly. Fix this and I'd be happy.
