Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls shows its wrinkly bits

You can look at Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls in two ways. It's a half-baked cash-in on a couple of ancient games (and that doesn't happen often on GBA, does it?) or a vital collector's edition that is essential for FF fans and a perfect introduction to the series for a new generation.
We shall reserve judgement. FF I & II definitely is a double-header of the first two NES games with slightly souped-up graphics to take advantage of the gargantuan processing power of the GBA.
These are the first English language screens we've come across. It does look nice and it could be interesting to take a Back to the Future-style DeLorean trip back to the days when the lush 3D environments of present day FF's were just an impossible dream. Ah, happy days...
Oh, and if you're listening Square-Enix, how about a brand new FF game instead of teasing us with re-releases, CG movies, and endless title patents? Please?
