Final Fantasy Chronicles – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence, Suggestive Themes

Final Fantasy Chronicles is a MUST for Square fans who picked up Final Fantasy Anthology and therefore missed out on Final Fantasy IV. Having a chance to play Chrono Trigger would be reason enough to pick up this collection.

Newbie gamers, who refuse to believe RPGs didn't begin with Final Fantasy VII - Final Fantasy IX and The Legend Of Dragoon should pick up these titles for perspective alone.

Chrono Cross owners should pick up this release for a chance to see how the series got started.

PlayStation 2 owners may find some relief from Final Fantasy Chronicles' load times thanks to the PS2's fast-loading feature. Though it helps speeds things up mildly in Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy IV suffers from choppy -- and sometimes missing -- music and video.

PSOne owners should be aware that reports are swirling of problems with the Final Fantasy IV disc not working on PSOne consoles. Square has not come up with a solution to fix this problem.

eBay auctioneers
should start weeping now. Fans no longer have a reason to shell out $80 for the 16-Bit versions of either game.

Parents should be aware that these games now feature some mature themes -- like a stripping dancer. It's nothing graphic given the simplistic low-resolution graphics, but it is there so be forewarned.
