The dark knight Cecil, stripped of his command of the Red Wings, set out for the distant Valley of Mist. Together with Kain, commander of the Dragoons, he would pursue a faceless quarry―and a chance for redemption. The advent of the airship had marked the realization of mankind's most ancient dream. But man is a creature seldom sated, and he was quick to dream anew. With the unparalleled might of the Red Wings, Baron's military soon reigned supreme. Why, then, does its king now seek the Crystals? And why have fearsome monsters suddenly begun to overrun the once calm land? If the Crystals know, they share no answers―only their pure and silent light.
This is probably the best version of Final Fantasy IV. It has content not present in later or prior releases like Whyt and related minigames, as well as the augment system which, while present in later versions, is messed with in the PC/iOS/AND releases.
This is a decent game but it's not a great remake. The graphics are sluggish even on the newer model 3DS with upgraded specs so the game slows down and is choppy far too often. I can't imagine how bad it would be on a regular DS. I remember really loving the GBA version but I feel let down by this one. They tweaked the difficulty somewhat. It seems as though the random encounter enemies are easier, but the boss battles are far harder, leading to some frustration and long grind sessions early on. In a game that might be one of the shortest in the Final Fantasy series, it's really not as enjoyable as previous incarnations of FFIV. A much better Final Fantasy remake is the DS version of FFIII, which is itself a better game overall, in my opinion.
Oh how I miss the era of 90's games, where the JRPG was king. There were many gems during that time, but Final Fantasy IV will always have a special place in my heart. The definition of a JRPG classic, FFIV was a pioneer landmark that truly ushered in an age where video games could tell a complex story just as well as any movie or novel. While many Final Fantasies came after this one, most of which can be argued to be "greater"/better, FFIV's status as a classic cannot be denied, and I'm happy to say this remake of it is worthy of the original in every way.
Surprisingly, I still like the original SUPER NES version better.
I've played most of the Final Fantasy games, and this one is...well, an early final fantasy game. If you enjoy classic JRPG's, then this is another solid addition to your collection. It's a long game, and I remember thinking I was almost done when I was actually barely past the halfway point. It starts off with a good level of difficulty, but eventually reaches the monotony that tends to be typical of turn based/grindy games. The plot starts of strong and has some good moments, but gets a bit ridiculous. Still, it was a very fun game overall.
Was a gift and the husband enjoys it very much
Great game very hard for me , but good fun.
Absolutely love this game! Book, box and cartridge all in excellent condition. No saving issues, I just have to beat the previous high scores on the Whyt mini games.
A great remake of the original version. That being said, it is a quite basic rpg, from the world and dungeon design to skill progression and of course - combat. This, while not nessesarily bad is not as engaging to modern player as lets say the ds version of Chrono Trigger or Radiant Historia. Nevertheless is a welcome entry into FF series as well as a fun little rpg.
I've probably played this game more times than any other (I'm fairly certain the SNES version taught me to read as a child). Anyways, this version is a worthy remake, with a better translation, and plenty of features that improve the gameplay and replayability.
There a few games that come along in a life time and change a genre; one of those games is Final Fantasy 4 (or 2 if you played it like I did originally on SNES). FF%/2 came out when I was ten and it really set the bar for how intense a story can be. With the all new SNES hardware at it's disposal FF4/2 was the game that was a solid ten across the board. When SquareEnix decided to revamp the title I was nervous but excited, needless to say I was not let down.
Un peu déçu de la refonte de vue des personnages mais le jeu est excellent
Final Fantasy IV is my favorite game all-time. For years I'd been hoping that Square would modernize it with one of today's platforms, and here it is. The amazing story (especially for its time) and its simple yet challenging combat tactics makes this a must for gamers of any age.
If you enjoy fantasy rpg, this is a fun and entertaining game. It plays well on the DS.
Excelente juego, llego a tiempo y sin problema. Es la version actualizada de FFIV con gráficos adaptados para el DS, lo recomiendo ampliamente.
Came in great condition for it having been used before, and I haven't had any problems with it since receiving!
Classic epic game
It showed up 6 days early, love this game and cant wait to take this ride all over again
Plays well, no markings on the package.
Pretty faithful to the original. Definitely one of the better ff games in the main series. If you like ff3 5 6 7 or 9 you'll probably like this too. Despite some of the characters being a bit cliché it has a great story and good development imo.
