Retro Finds: 2 - Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced, Metroid: Fusion, Metroid: Zero Mission

Wow! I made a few good finds in the past couple of days. I bought all of these together for no more than $30.00 i don't think so good deal i suppose.

My first impressions of these games are okay. Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced is great - it reminds me of FFXII: Revenant Wings for the DS through its similar TBS gameplay. It also has some of the same enemies from FFXII as well. I haven't done much yet but I'm still finding it fun. There are laws against using certain spells which annoys me a bit and it's a bit limited and linear for a Final Fantasy game.

Metroid: Fusion came out 2 years before Metroid: Zero Mission, but i prefer it as it seems to have a more professional, informative and overall more lengthy introduction and i personally think the music's better!  I've always loved the Metroid series and it's good to see it in its original roots. It took me a while to get it to work - there must of been a little bit of dust inside the cartridge.

Metroid: Zero Mission is also very good. But I'm not enjoying it as much as Fusion. It doesn't tell you much, so you're just left running around having no idea where to go. The hunter ship doesn't seem to have made an appearance yet either. I still enjoy blasting enemies with the arm cannon and the game also seems to require more thought and more adventure than its predecessor.
