Yea, One of my favorite RPG's on the IPhone is Vay and it plays fine. "
perhaps i should have said it diffrently, what i meant was this is the first time i see a port/version of a major console game that looks good, unlike say for example the metal gear solid iphone game. i know there are plenty good original games out there for the iphone.

So you're saying you don't really know what you're talking about. . .ok.
 
Movement is controlled by an onscreen d-pad, but the game is more than just a simple port. The only time the 
"on screen buttons" are there are for overworld movement. Have you seen the combat? It's all controlled with touch now.
 
But I get it, it's cool to hate on SE and the iPod. Sometimes an onscreen control just makes more sense. Would you have prefered them make you have to control your character using the accelerometer?

@bonbolapti: INDEED!  Instead the airship will be powered by hipsters on fixed gear bikes.

I don't see why the controls would be a problem it's Final Fantasy I & II not exactly the most complicated RPGs out there today. The virtual D-pad looks very big and shouldn't cause any movement issues, I believe everything else is handle via touching the screen though so the battles should control very similar to how they have in DS Final Fantasy remakes.
 
My only issue with this is, they shouldn't charge any more than $2.99 each and $4.99 if they end up putting them together. These two games have been ported to literally every handheld device with a screen from the GBA to the WonderSwan.  That being said, with the iPhone being a device I have on me wherever I go. I am down to get these for the controls, I have the NES verisons of the games on my iPhone now, but they are not fun to play due to the awful emulator controls.

if they are under 5 bucks i'll be willing to try FF 1 and 2 for the first time on my ipod :o

Posted by Johnny2900

We get it Square-Enix! The first two final fantasys are amazing and you want everyone to play them at least 20 times before we die. I get it!
Posted by darkjester74

Final Fantasy is the new Tetris...evidently.  =\

Posted by Tally_Pants

i bought the port for FF1 & 2 for my GBA like 10yrs ago... enjoyed it... and see no need to give iTunes my money!!
Posted by Bacbi

Problem is that it's gonna take forever to playthrough because of batterylife :p

Posted by Dave_The_Rave

This is just a port of the PSP versions which I already have.

Unless you have virtual buttons on screen, and then it will be like any other game. And if you have an iPhone, getting the bus everyday maybe, you're saying you wouldn't play this game? (if we're saying that you are a person that likes Final Fantasy). "
Controls are a really big issue on the iphone, i got GTA: CTW and it just doesnt feel right. final fantasy is awesome, but they should stick with the main consoles..

How many fucking times do they want to port I+II?
Posted by Slasher71

I own these two for three systems already.  Sorry Square but I have to say no to four.  You've taken enough of my money on these two games already.

@AuthenticM: You seem to be forgetting about GTA: Chinatown Wars ;) 
 
Looks... like Final Fantasy, I guess. I won't be buying these, but this video does fill me with a nice, nostalgic feeling.

Showed FF1 a lot.  Even the first game scene with Garland was from 1.  It showed the scene in the dwarf cave with the TNT.  It showed the crossing of the bridge which leads to the famous story scene with the FF epilogue/theme music (which is playing).

THeyll prly be around the pricepoint of other square games on the appstore, which is a shame

The iPhone finally gets its first Video Game.

Posted by Jedted

Don't see much point to this aside from nostalgia and seeing as i've never played the first 2 Final Fantasies i'll give this a pass. 
Posted by vr00m

Man, what now... next thing you know they'll have street fighter IV on the iPhone.

Hmmm...FF on the iPhone, huh? I'm personally not a fan of gaming on my phone for obvious reasons that there are other greater ways to game, but hell, I would definitely love a GOOD RPG on the go...especially in class lol...best part of having an iPhone, heh. :P

Posted by natetodamax

Alright, I guess.

Posted by mattysen

Well, I'm guessing these are about the same remake that went to the PSP a couple years back so; just another hand-held to Iphone port, nothing to see here folks, move along 

Posted by MeatSim

Not interested at all.

No, if they just port a regular game to the iPhone and just slap touch buttons on the screen in order to play it, then it's a piece of shit.

I wasn't aware that a "real" game had to be played with tactile buttons. . .
 
There are tons of games with imaginative game play that uses the touch screen to it's fullest.

"Hey lets release those two games we have released on everything else again on iPhone, good thing we waited till the App Store buzz died down. People love to buy those games again, especially the second one, the broken one. We can't really be bothered coming up with a new 2D Final Fantasy for this device. Lets badly composite our stock B-Roll footage onto a terrible image of the iPhone and be done with it."
 I can't really blame them since this has worked so many times in the past, I'm just amazed when it is I & II again. I mean if a year goes by when they don't re-release those two specific games again they might go under.

Posted by Milkman

An interesting idea that could potentially work pretty well.

Why would they be saying that onscreen controls don't work if they've played a good game with onscreen controls? "
Yes that's more or less my point, good job.
