Dawn of Souls is a GBA remake of the first two NES Final Fantasy games, and they take advantage of the Game Boy Advance‘s enhanced capabilities (enhanced over the NES, anyway).
The menus are quicker and clearer; the timings are better – everything has been made better in this 2004 remake – although the same basic storyline and structure has been retained from the originals. As you would expect. There are some new additions, though. Four new dungeons; a few new monsters; a better save function, and other minor changes.
Graphically and musically: both of these remakes are wonderful. Combined, they represent hours of top-quality, old school level-grinding.
If you’ve always wanted to play the first Final Fantasy but didn’t like the look of the NES original: try this release instead. It’s as slick as they come – and you get the sequel with it.

One of the games in my pretty small GBA collection. Probably one of my favourite remasters, this really was the way to do it, complete overhaul and new features without losing the soul of the originals. I never spent half as much time with Final Fantasy II as I wanted to though, maybe it’s time to finally fix that.
