Final Fantasy IV: Nintendo DS Review


Out of all the Final Fantasy games, Final Fantasy IV is probably the one that had the roughest ride over to the US (not counting, of course, the ones that were never made it over in the first place). The original US version was butchered, with the...

Good graphics and voice acting ; Challenging gameplay ; Customizable Augment system

At times almost unfairly difficult ; Some changes unnecessary

The definitive version of an old school classic, but might be too difficult for some.

Final Fantasy IV - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


Square has had a lot of success stories in its time on this planet. Final Fantasy brought RPGs to the mainstream on consoles, helping to establish a genre which today is one of the biggest stomping ground of developers next to shooters and sports...

Final Fantasy IV


I'll admit, there is a part of me that has always resented the idea of video game remakes. While there have certainly been some memorable remakes (Resident Evil on the GameCube, Super Mario All-Stars on the Super NES, etc.), they come with this stigma...

Not only is Final Fantasy one of the best looking games on the Nintendo DS, but it also features the best story and characters. It's hard not to fall in love with some of the best characters in the Final Fantasy universe. If you love adventure games...

Final Fantasy IV


Final Fantasy IV is a classic game, and in its time a true innovation. The game has voice acting, that’s a plus, the voice acting is bad, and that’s a minus. The game is linear, that’s a minus, but it was designed to be so, and the plot is good,...

Final Fantasy IV (DS)


It's been 17 years since a pre-Enix Square first brought the Japanese role-playing classic Final Fantasy IV to North American shores as the renamed Final Fantasy II. Now, nearly two decades and a handful of re-releases later, Final Fantasy IV is...

This review was based on a retail copy of the game purchased by Crispy Gamer.

Final Fantasy IV


Every reviewer has a different way of scoring remakes. For some, a grade is given to the remake that judges it based on the improvements it made from the previous version(s). For others, a reviewer may compare it to other remakes done for other systems...

There is no way to properly rate a remake. Some may look at how the game has improved from its predecessors, while others may grade based on how certain bugs may have been addressed. While these methodologies may be sound, I like to look at the...

Final Fantasy IV Nintendo DS Review


Fast forward 17 years or so and Final Fantasy IV is once again bewitching the fingers of players everywhere. Reuniting with Cecil, our story begins just as we remember: the betrayal of a wayward king and a conscientious rebellion. Cecil travels the...

Augments let you share abilities, quick save is a godsend, Eidolon customization lets you draw on his face, mini-games are actually challenging, completed map rewards give you the goods

Fat Chocobo hogs the bestiary, no auto-save, towns are few and far between

Reaching back into its archive, Square Enix recreated Final Fantasy IV on the Nintendo DS for a new generation of players. This gaming legend stole the show in Japan after its 1991 release on the Super Famicon. After a name change, the newly dubbed...

Final Fantasy IV


Same here. If I ever actually have time to play a game as long as FFIV for fun, it's definitely near the top of my list. Post a Comment

FFIV DS is a winner. Not only is it the defining iteration of FFIV, it's one of the greatest remakes ever produced and deserves a permanent spot in every DS owner's collection.

Final Fantasy IV (DS) Review


While it has only been 3 years after Final Fantasy IV's first remake, will this new and improved version wow the fans and the newcomers?

This game wasn’t just given a makeover for the fans; it’s a re-release for the next generation to experience the old school games in a visual quality that they have come to expect. It’s nice to see something old become something new, although some of...

Final Fantasy IV


Of Strong Heritage

Final Fantasy IV was one of the first RPGs to star characters with an identity, instead of the faceless mages and warriors of past games. The numerous characters you encounter are all well-rounded and imaginative enough to ensure you actually care...
