Summary: No matter whether you were there from the beginning or just now playing the game for the time, Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection has something for everybody. With its action-packed story, memorable characters and strong narrative, there's a reason people continue to celebrate this game twenty years later. Even though the bonus content doesn't come close to matching the original game, there's more than enough to love about this $30 collection!
Excerpt: The original Final Fantasy has returned once again, this time as Final Fantasy PSP . This adventure has been told many times before with this being the fourth time it's seen the light of day in North America. I have to ask at this point, is there anyone who has not played this game in some form or another?
Excerpt: Final Fantasy PSP is by no means a brand new experience. It's hardly a detriment to say that the game is lacking in originality, being twenty years old this year. The very fact that it's still playable after all this time is an impressive feat; however, this version of Final Fantasy is almost identical to the Dawn of Souls rendition on the Game Boy Advance. There are a few additions, but nowhere near enough to make this seem like a brand new game.
Conclusion: Even though I enjoyed this game a lot I still can’t give it a perfect rating, mainly since the GBA did this before and they offered two games for the same price. I enjoy this version of Final Fantasy the best, but I think they could have made this game at least ten dollars cheaper. It’s still work it in my mind, but when compared to the last remake, the price does play a factor.
Excerpt: You lucky PSP owners, you! We don't know what you've done to deserve a re-tooling of the original and best RPG ever, but oh, the good fortune you have! Final Fantasy is a series that never suffered from the dreaded 'sequel-itis'. No sir, each iteration had something fabulous to offer in terms of gameplay and or storyline, and here's where it all started, albeit in a remastered and slightly re-jigged fashion to bring things up to 2008-style speed.
Excerpt: Final Fantasy 1 on the Famicom is the game that got SquareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s flagship series into the eyeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s of gamers back in 1987. Since then, plenty of remakes of this game have been made for systems such as the NES, Playstation 1, and even on mobile phones. Now, twenty years later, an anniversary edition of this legendary title has been released, but unfortunately it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as desirable as it once was.
