Summary: When Square-Enix announced that they were remaking the fourth Final Fantasy for the Nintendo DS, one thought came to many gamers’ minds: were they insane? After all, they had just ported the title to the Gameboy Advance, so this announcement seemed to confirm that they were far more interested in making easy money off constant re-releases than in producing fresh content.
Summary: This game is pretty awesome. I played the game back when i was a mere lad and enjoyed it then, so when my english teacher challenged us with a video game project i decided to revisit this game. I fell in love with the game all over again, there are so many reoccuring themes that translate so well to the time frame that the game is played in. The most solid theme was that even the greatest of things can be the worst of things in the wrong hands.
Summary: Graphics are impressive; solid battle system, items, equipment, and storyline. Highly addictive. the augment feature adds a challenge to those who want to earn 100% completion on everything and grab gear that carries over to new game+
Summary: Great game, graphics have really been updated, intro is especially nice. The gameplay has been tweaked a bit with new abilities, weapons/armor, and nice voiceovers. The game has the classic Final Fantasy combat all of us RPGers have come to know and love. Leveling up is still a major need, so all of you grind lovers will enjoy. Overall a great improvement of the original SNES version, and a good buy for any fan of the series.
Summary: I recently had a little fun, loading my old GameBoy copy of Final Fantasy IV onto my GameBoy and comparing it to this rewrite for the Nintendo DS. Looking at both makes me impressed with the amount of effort that went into giving a pretty old RPG a DS-style upgrade. This isn't just a port to introduce people new to the Final Fantasy series: this one seems like it was also for the fans.
Summary: I personally have a deep love for the Final Fantasy series. So when I found out that Final Fantasy IV came out, I knew I had to get it. The game is remade quite the same way Final Fantasy III was. They did change a few things like map placement and such as well as having the game rely mostly on the buttons than the touch screen which I was okay with. They added cut scenes with some pretty good voice acting, I must say.
Summary: So I jumped into the FF series VERY late, and decided to go in no logical order (that also happens to be chronologically), so I had no experience with the dynamic battle system inherent in the later games until this point. I was very pleasantly surprised. The main problem with FF 1-3 (apart from the unimaginative stories) was that once you figured out who was weak to what, the game became a grindfest until you could easily defeat higher enemies.
