You Spoony Bard Dagnabbit! How Bout We Add Some Medicore Voices Too?
25 June 2013
Summary: Personally Final Fantasy IV is by far my favorite FF game of all time. The classic story, the characters, the music, the battles etc. Since it has seen 3 previous releases there wasn't room for a lot of improvement save for the graphics but they took it a step further and added in some voice actors. Let me comment on each aspect of this version. Translation: God forbid they change "you Spoony bard!" how many times must we see this stupid and inaccurate translation?
Summary: If you are familiar with the previous versions of this game and still have the ability to play them on the older Nintendo systems I would recommend them over this version. The "enhanced graphics" aren't an improvement. The game itself remains the same and is a classic inspite of the "update". If you have never played it you can grab this copy to experience it but its not an update.
Summary: Most people who rave about this game probably played it when it was on the Super Nintendo. I gave this game a try being a first time player, and I found it is a little too old school. This review is for people who are new to FF 4 and need a nostalgia free perspective. Pros - Good Voice Acting - Good story telling - Great Music Cons - Random Battles - You need to Grind to level up to move forward - Outdated battle mechanics - Linear Conclusion: I liked the game from a...
Summary: I'm going to keep this short. Final fantasy IV came out many years ago as final fantasy 2 and was awesome. Remastered for the gba a little while back, and now we have the ds version. Final fantasy 4 is a fun game that those who are hardcore fans of final fantasy and just regular rpg fans will enjoy. In comparison to the older versions you have 3d graphics, cut scenes that have great voiceocers, a soundtrack that just rocks, and really fun extra mini-games.
Summary: Let me get one thing out of the way. Final Fantasy IV was my favorite game growing up. I had it on the SNES, the PS1, and the GBA. Those versions were great. This one is not. Sure, the 3D graphics are pretty, but what gives with the childish-looking characters? The minigames seemed to me just a petty excuse to use the stylus, and they really weren't all that great. Math? C'mon. And what about bonus content?
Summary: All final fantasy games are difficult in many places, and I don't think the makers of these games will ever apologize to the public in any way for making them difficult. It's a pretty good game, but the thing that I don't like about it and the other 5 final fantasy games that i've played is the fact that I have to spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME in the menue trying to decide which battle options to use against the enemy.
Summary: I got this game because I really liked "Final Fantasy 3" for the DS. Unfortunately I don't like this one as much as part 3, perhaps because of the active time bar, but overall it's been a pretty fun game and the story seems better than the previous one. I'm still going to play it 'til the end to see how I like it.
Summary: This game is great but some times bad. I bought this because i thought it looked good and i am a big fan of the final fantasy games. what is good about this game is the graphics. it has great graphics and cut scenes and they are probally some of the best graphics for the ds. the story and the attacks and stuff are a great improvement from the snes version. what is bad about this game is the diffuculty.
Summary: There are a lot of good things about this game, as mentioned by many reviewers. But after putting in over 20 hours of game time I have found them to be offset by two sore points: - when wandering around the wilderness or in caves, you are attacked by hidden monsters about every 10 seconds of game time. Yes, you need these combats to level-up (see next complaint), but they make exploration a total drag, and are extremely repetitive (same monsters over and over again).
Summary: While this game has been nicely updated graphics wise for the DS, the thrill of actually using the stylus is removed and the overly challenging game that was the frame still remains. While I played the game through to the final level, I found myself overly frustrated with the final enemies and consumed with rage as I found myself fruitlessly battling the enemy bosses over and over and over and over again.
