    More than Just Another Zelda Clone!!

    Contrary to what the title would lead you to believe, The Final Fantasy Adventure is not a Final Fantasy game. It is, in fact, the first game in the Mana trilogy and the predecessor to the much loved Secret of Mana for t... Read Full Review

    Otherwise known as Mystic Quest (in Europe). Worth a look for nostalgia's sake.

    Although it bore the Final Fantasy name in the US, this actually was part of the "Mana" series (Check out Secret of Mana for the SNES). In Europe we got it as Mystic Quest, which is a very straight-forward, but enjoyabl... Read Full Review

    On par with a Link to the Past | Great Story | Genuinely creepy elements (rare for GB game) | Should have blown up

    Really great game: above average gameplay, great story, great world, amazing weapons. Took me a long time to track this one down. I remembered one of my friends had it when we were more of children. When we had sleep ove... Read Full Review

    It's Zelda - except better!

    If you have never played Final Fantasy Adventure and love The Legend of Zelda 1 and 3 then I urge you to play it now. It is, in my opinion, the best game on the original Game Boy. I won't go into all the details of why i... Read Full Review

    One of those games people should not miss, to be honest.

    I myself have played nearly all of the Mana Series' games, and this one stands out as one of the best, given the Gameboy's limited capability, and critics are right: it stands out from other Gameboy games, and for good r... Read Full Review

    Zelda: Link's Awakening...two years prior.

    When I put the carteridge in, I thought I had the wrong game. "Wait...isn't Final Fantasy games supposed to be sequential RPG?" I found myself asking. No, and curiously so. As I began to battle and explore I realized ... Read Full Review

    One of my favorite games of all time.

    Possibly the best story of any game with basically just 4 main characters(2 bad, 2 good) with a few others mixed in. You are an orphan boy, forced to fight gladiator style against monsters day in and out(why you start a... Read Full Review

    A GB classic old and new prg fans should play.

    The best Action Role-playing game ever.

    The final fantasy series has gotten a lot of hype post-Final Fantasy VII. This unfortunately, means that most of the older Final Fantasy's are ignored or simply seen as collectors merchandise. Final Fantasy Adventure was... Read Full Review

    One of the Best!!!

    With the rise of more sophisticated Game Boy games and systems, not too much is known about Final Fantasy except how much this game truly delivers an overwhelming taste of adventure. The story is very enjoyable and the s... Read Full Review

    Simple graphics and yet lots of fun.

    I have really enjoyed playing a series beginnings and this game is no exception. I first thought years ago that this was a Final Fantasy game but instead it is a Mana game like Secret of Mana. I remember playing this gam... Read Full Review
