The best Final Fantasy games PSP games are all unique and have different features than the old run of the mill games. Of course, there are some remade classics but there are also different genres such as fighting and action, featuring all of the well known FF characters that many gamers will notice. These four games are honestly the best the PSP has to offer on this franchise.
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
This game is most definitely for anyone that loves the mini empire that FFVII has built. Fusing action style fighting with RPG based leveling and item finding, you play as Zack Fair, Cloud Strife’s old friend and Shinra soldier. You must go through many different styles of missions and watch the story unfold as your mentor, Angeal, shows you the ropes. A lot of twists and turns happen in the story that answers a lot of questions fans have had in the past. Featuring fan favorites like Tifa and Sephiroth, and having a fun fast paced combat system, this is one game that should not be missed.
Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy
Being a sequel to the first Dissidia, the series is a fighting style game with plenty of action and less RPG elements. Many fans loved the idea of having all the main male characters from previous FF games in the line up, as you could choose which one to control and master their abilities. In Dissidia 012, the formula is similar with some added game play parts such as the new world map where you have complete control of the character you’re being. There’s also new people in the forefront such as Lightning from FFXIII and Laguna from FFVIII. With over 60 hours of game play, this is one game that will keep anyone busy.
Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions
Being a slightly remade version from the original Playstation game, War of the Lions features a new color scheme as well as the appearance of Balthier from Final Fantasy XII. This game is for anyone that loves to use strategy in their attacks, it being a tactical type of RPG. The story has been praised for being deep and interesting, something that many new FF games tend to lack. Playing as the young Ramza, you must shed light on the country of Ivalice’s history and the new king’s rise to power. The PSP version is definitely recommended over the original.
Final Fantasy II
First being a computer game, then on Game Boy Color and Playstation, FFII has had many transfers. With keeping the original story and controls intact, the PSP version is for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to play this game. With basic controls and a classic RPG feel with an updated color palette, FFII will keep even new Final Fantasy fans interested. You play as Firion and his band of rebels who find out who they truly oppose, the Emperor. The game plays a bit slow and the game play can be a bit clunky, but it was an amazing game for its time.
These are definitely the best Final fantasy games on the PSP. With all their different types of game play, enthralling stories, and a lot of replay value, they will keep a PSP owner occupied for a long time.
