Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection Review

GamerNode
24 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Square Enix rekindled interest in Final Fantasy IV a few years ago when they updated and re-released the RPG classic on the Nintendo DS. Now it looks like the company is trying to capitalize on that yet again with Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection for the PSP.
  • Pros: Includes the original game, its WiiWare sequel, and a new interlude, The high resolution graphics are a noticeable improvement, Story and characters still hold up today
  • Cons: Unlike the DS re-release, not many changes were made, The sequel recycles quite a few dungeons and enemies from the original game

  • Excerpt: Ever since Shining Force III, there has not been one redeemable Shining Force game. There, I said it and I stick by it. When Sega decided that the series was better interpreted as action RPGs rather than as strategy RPGs, the franchise died, I was sad, but I healed and moved on, carefully avoiding...

Shining Force EXA – Review

GameCritics.com
13 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Sega is a weird company—almost the antithesis of Nintendo. Both corporations were once gaming giants who've seen their stock fall in recent years, both created some of the greatest videogame IPs of all time, and both are still players in the industry.

  • Excerpt: Say it. Say that the Shining series is over. Tell me that it’s lost its edge, that it’s nothing without the brilliant strategy that made it so famous. Say the Shining series is destined to fade into obscurity rather than make the leap into the next generation. Say it, and I may have believed it.

  • Conclusion: There are a lot of things wrong with this game.  There is hardly any strategy at all, the battles often consist of mindlessly hitting the X button over and over, and the various quests do seem to feel the same after a while.  If the game was limited to those flaws, it wouldn�t be too bad.
