If the high enemy encounter rate and challenging final boss battle of Final Fantasy don't scare you, you should consider purchasing this excellent remake of what is often considered the first good console RPG. The core experience by itself is solid, but the amount of polish that has been put into this remake is simply stunning.
The gorgeous visuals, superb music, battle system enhancements, and lower difficulty make this a great way to experience the original Final Fantasy. These additions and the fact that you can now save anywhere clearly make this the definitive version of Final Fantasy. If you've ever wanted to experience the beginning of this franchise, now is the time.
