Final Fantasy IV DS Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy IV is an important game in Final Fantasy’s history, not only in terms of quality but also for it introducing elements that were to be mainstays of the series until Final Fantasy XII came along. For those reasons, Final Fantasy IV was certainly due a remake and Square Enix and Matrix Software have delivered one such game for the DS.

Final Fantasy IV (Nintendo DS) Review

Impression: Final Fantasy IV DS

15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy II for the SNES was my first RPG, and one of the few games still capable of filling my organs with warm, squishy nostalgia. Screenshots? Warm, squishy nostalgia. Game music? Warm, squishy nostalgia. 2D character sprites? Warm, squishy nostalgia. The last 10 years' worth of Final Fantasy IV remakes were glorified ports, safely leaving my nostalgia-reflex intact, but now I hold in my hands Final Fantasy IV DS : a true remake.

Final Fantasy IV

8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: I guess what we're looking at here is a essentially a DVD reissue of a classic black-and-white silent film.  Like Safety Last! or The Gold Rush, but reshot and dubbed.  We can celebrate Matrix and Square Enix for giving a new generation of gamers a chance to experience FFIV (although, let's face it—this generation has gotten four new chances to try out FFIV in the last seven years); we can cheer the quality of the presentation, and the reverence of the changes, but the...

Final Fantasy IV review (DS)

13 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy IV has long been one of my top 5 RPGs, but I'll admit I was incredibly skeptical when I heard of the plans to re-release it on the Nintendo DS in the same style as Final Fantasy III. I'm a sucker for classic 16-bit graphics, and I just knew that something was going to go horribly wrong in the process of redesigning the entire game.

Remake of classic RPG, with complex adult themes.

Common Sense Media
28 December 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this role-playing game isn't appropriate for younger children. Little about the game is explicit -- there's no blood, sex, or strong language -- but there's plenty of fighting, some female characters wear revealing clothing, and alcohol is occasionally referenced in dialogue and signage. All of that said, the game's primary concern is its complex adult themes, which include love, loyalty, betrayal, and redemption.
