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. Compared to the DS version, this new release doesn’t come with too many changes, but it makes up for that by including the recent sequel and shows that a 20-year-old game can still be enjoyable in this day...
  • 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

Expert Review

  • 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 every Shining Force game thereafter. Enter Shining Force EXA, another in the long string of bad ideas from Sega.

Shining Force EXA

  • Excerpt: Shining Force EXA is brought to us by the publishing department of SEGA and developed by Neverland. The cute and cuddly anime-inspired figures will look quite familiar to fans of the long-running series, which has transitioned from classic, turn-based RPG action, to a more action-oriented, real-time combat system.

Shining Force EXA

20 March 2007
  • Excerpt: There was once a time when Sega was a major player in the video game industry. They're still around, but their clout was arguably at its peak during the hey-day of the 16-bit Genesis system when it had Sonic running wild and free. But while the blue hedgehog was bringing home the bacon, it was the company's Shining Force series that was bringing home the accolades.
