Plot. The game begins when the world has fallen into darkness, towns and other countries are being invaded by the powerful Palamecian Empire, and many Kingdoms had to make resistance groups. Meanwhile in Fynn, the town is overwhelmed where one of their most loyal people sells out the resistance to the Empire, thus making him a general. Four young people who lost their parents at the hands of the Empire are pursued, their names are Firion, Maria, Guy and Leon. They get severely wounded and then rescued by Princess Hilda of Fynn, who has established a resistance base in the village of Altair. The youths decide to join the rebels in order to take the Empire down for good.
Music. The music is quite decent and impressive in many ways for this game. I always worship Uematsu's musical work.
Characters. Players encounter many playable allies such as Minwu, Josef and so on. That is until they can get Leon back, who is missing since the beginning of the game.
Rantings. My rantings are the gameplay. Weapons must level up in order to have a stronger strength and stamina. I really disliked how they took away experience points, and the random encounters being so damn rampant. This game will actually get people more pissed off than Adam Sessler getting pissed at Jack "The Jackass" Thompson. Even if it's ok that ALL characters can equip EVERY weapon and learn magic, I still found it stupid that they have lower chances of hitting, and players would have to beat themselves up for leveling HP up. The gameplay was completely stupid.
Good Aspect. They only thing I actually liked about this game is the storyline and music. Also the villain of the game, Mateus Palamecia is memorable for his manipulation of the heroes and the resistance group of Fynn. The Emperor is like him being God and Satan at the same time.
Overall. This game is not a very good Final Fantasy game, due to the many flaws that this game has such as the level up system and the high rate of random encounters that there are. Final Fantasy II, gets a 4 out of 10. This has to be the worst Final Fantasy game ever made.
