More than 15 years ago, SquareSoft shocked the world with its masterpiece Final Fantasy II (which was actually the fourth game in the series but only the second released in North America). For the first time, console role-players weren't given a few...

The latest game in the ever increasing list of Square Enix back catalogue titles to be dusted off and given the DS treatment, Final Fantasy IV is an updated version of a game first released on the Super Famicom in Japan all the back in 1991.

Final Fantasy IV review for the DS

 

Play it again, you spoony bard!

Classic battles and bosses; Augment system; Many plot twists; 3D graphics on the DS

but rides on them too much.; . . .that look dated.; Whyt and forced stylus mini-games

Revamping classics seems to be at least half of Square Enix's main method of attack, and it's working. While FFIV has a geriatric story and presentation - the 3D graphics and enhanced soundtrack are impressive for the DS but they still look old - its...

Final Fantasy IV Review

 

Fans of Cecil's epic journey now have their definitive version of the game.

The excellent 3D makeover doesn't fix what isn't broken, plot and gameplay elements are now fully fleshed out

Very little touch screen support, the voice acting is hit and miss

What is most admirable about the remake of Square's classic RPG game is not the fancy new 3D graphics. The look may be more modern and some of the features and combat tweaked, but ultimately the underlying game itself remains just as it was complete...

Magnificent even when squeezed on a DS cart, one of Square Enix's best titles is back.

It's Final Fantasy IV, but it's also a great DS game with enhanced graphics, improved audio, and excellent gameplay additions

Some minor technical flaws could have been fixed, but it's nothing too serious

Final Fantasy IV v 7.0

My ultimate beef with FFIV DS is that it doesn't really work as a remake or a reissue. It doesn't work as a reissue since stylistically it's trying to do something very different from the SNES version, and it's not very successful aside from the voice...

Final Fantasy IV is a classic among RPGs. The remake of this game is by far the best Final Fantasy IV experience. This game has so many great things about it, from the hours of gameplay to full motion video. There are a few problems I have with this...

Final Fantasy III was one of those first generation DS titles that stood out for really showing what the hardware was capable of in terms of visuals, especially since the majority of other DS games released at that time looked like they could have been...

Product Specifications

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.
