Excerpt: It so very nice to find a video game that has been rated with the right descriptors from the ESRB. The rating the game got is of course another matter entirely. If you really want to confuse someone try and explain the numerical sequence of the Final Fantasy video games. This game is actually the previously released Final Fantasy II in America (editor: on the Super NES system). It was always Final Fantasy IV in Japan.
Excerpt: Before I start in on this review, let me clarify a few things. I found Final Fantasy IV (II on the SNES), to be the defining RPG of my youth. It had been hyped to me by friends, and when I got the chance to play it, it lived up to the hype for me. Taking an unbiased, nostalgia-free look at this title was difficult for me, mostly because of all the memories wrapped up with the original.
Excerpt: Just about everyone in the “old guard” of RPG players knows what Final Fantasy IV is about, though at the time they would have known it as Final Fantasy II for the Super Nintendo. For many it was even their first RPG. This game is one of the major classics of the genre, with beloved lines like “You spoony bard!
Excerpt: Take a group of plucky adventurers, add in an overpowering evil threatening to destroy the planet, throw in some romantic tension and internal conflict, add a dash of character development, let simmer for a little while at 350, and you have Squenix’s formula for an insanely popular RPG franchise. Final Fantasy, originally a last-ditch effort by Squaresoft to save itself from bankruptcy, has since become a household name as recognizable as Mario.
Summary: Final Fantasy IV, arguably the breakthrough entry in the influential series, is a perfect fit for the Game Boy Advance and is a must-play experience for fans of role-playing games.
Pros: A faithful adaptation of one of the greatest role-playing games ever made, Excellent story filled with memorable characters, Beautifully composed musical score, Lengthy quest and plenty of interesting places to explore
Cons: Some of the slight differences from the original may put off hardcore fans
Excerpt: Много воды утекло с тех пор, как Final Fantasy IV появилась на SNES. Однако игру не забывают: прежде чем добраться до GBA, она уже побывала на PS one и даже WonderSwan Color. Большую часть времени новоиспеченные правдорубы под вашим чутким руководством будут изучать попадающиеся навстречу города и подземелья, общаться с местными жителями и сражаться с монстрами.
