    You do not need fancy graphics to enjoy a good game.

    Rated on January 21, 2006 by robinnwa

    I remember this game being pretty simple graphics wise if a bit less than Final Fantasy Adventure was but still you didn’t have to pretend the blue was water and the green was land. I cannot remember ...

    Final Fantasy Legend might have been a great game when it just came out, rivalling Dragon Warrior but nowadays, it just isn't even really worth playing unless you desperately want to see Final Fantasy...

    Not bad for the first handheld RPG ever

    Rated on March 14, 2010 by Sephiroth765

    As far as I know, The Final Fantasy Legend is the first RPG designed for a portable game system and it's history is somewhat irritating to me. This is not really a Final Fantasy title; this is actuall...

    Really old school

    Rated on September 09, 2007 by zcds

    Before FF hit the NES in America we got this GB RPG. The story tells of a tower to salvation but getting in the tower is the trouble. You play as 4 travelers who first set out to get relics from 3 kin...

    Rated on January 25, 2007 by superdemento

    Imagination was necessary when playing old school games. There where a lot of blanks to fill in. For those few gamers that hear me on this, Final Fantasy Legend is worth a play. I thought the guild sy...

    It was great back then, but don't expect to be blown away by an epic RPG experience.

    Rated on January 23, 2007 by flfylmnfish

    Final Fantasy Legend is the U.S. rendition of the Japanese game, SaGa: Makai Toshi. While developed by SquareSoft, Final Fantasy Legend is NOT related to the epic, story-heavy Final Fantasy series th...

    Good turn-based console RPG, marred by some serious flaws.

    Rated on January 18, 2011 by Star_Gem

    Like most reviews will tell you, The Final Fantasy Legend is not part of Squaresoft's (now Square Enix) iconic Final Fantasy franchise. It was made by the same company, yes, but it's part of the SaGa ...
