According to the 1up review there's some in-battle slowdown.

I wonder if that's in-store as well. And can you pricematch and use the $10 BB coupon?

I've been ranting for at least 2 years about how this should be on GBA, and that i'd kill for a portable copy (Now, i'd kill for Earthbound/Chrono Trigger/Illusion of Gaia on the same cart.. bootleg or not, I WANT THAT!).. and now it's finally here. I was so excited at the announcement.. hype's at an all time high. Like many of you, this is my absolute favorite Final Fantasy. I have the MP3 soundtrack of it that I made on my PC, I have the piano soundtrack, I have the celtic soundtrack.. I could never beat this game, but it is my absolute all time favorite.. Cecil.. Kain.. Rosa.. Palom and Parom.. the old fart wizard.. Dark Cecil.. Someone said the game was 15 years old and i'm thinkin' man, what's that guy on.. but it is! Holy crap.

Don't get me wrong, FF3/6 or whatever it was was fun (especially the guy in your party that gambled), but FF2/4 is where it's at. The SNES is in storage (along with FF2, FF3, Earthbound and Chrono Trigger), so I haven't played this in a while except for the rom, which isn't the same. I.. cannot.. wait. The only thing that's bad is that this is coming out literally on the very last day of school, and I wanted to get it to play between classes. :dunce:

Just be sure to get FF4 at least! ;) Anything else is up to you. If DKC 3 is part of a sale, go for that, save the money. AC and MK are always going to be expensive.

Reviews...? The game is 15 years old.... IMO it's the best FF. Go and pick it up as soon as possible; you won't regret it.

It has ATB I never really liked ATB although I'll give it another chance.

Got it at CC for $25. Will play it at work later this week. Due to screwy difficulty level and kind of a light & basic story, it's not as good as FFVI. But the battle system is better, and 5 character battles rock. And the story is very good for its era (kind of like Dragon Warrior IV on NES)

Now where's Dragon Warrior 5&6 Squenix! And Chrono Trigger!

Picked up two copies at Best Buy for $19.99 each after coupon.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

My battle meters pause once every couple rounds, not sure if thats the slowdown everyone has reported. It's annoying at first, but you kinda get over it. It's not as if anything is going on in the foreground to cause it.

The battles feel alot slower then they should be... the game kind of stutters at times, not sure if that's just the limits of the GBA, but I highly doubt it.

Also, this game is alot easier then it should be... unless I somehow became a FF 4 master, I am breezing through this game like nobody's business.

Did target ever get these in, i was there at 10am on wednesday to buy this game, and the stupid employee made up some story about the truck not coming till later in the day.

Today i go in and no sign of the game whatsoever, no signs or anything. Im really mad since i have the 10$ coupon from the gameboy micro to use on this game.

Well the Run feature seems to speed things up quite a bit but the game does slow down for me during battles and I don't remember it used to. The music seems a bit muffled and not as clear as it used to be but I assume that's because of a crappy sound processor on the GBA. Currently I'm on mount ordeals leveling up with all charectors 20+ and I'm only at about 4 hours play time. I noticed they made it so the dancers don't strip anymore like they did in Hard type and the PS1 port. So I'm starting to wonder if this is a hybrid of easy and hard type together.

They don't strip? While I wouldn't give two shits normally, I am a FF purist; do they just dance now?
