Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light (DS)

 

Getting an adventure off the ground is hard work. There's the recruitment of stalwart companions, much roaming of the world, unsightly explosions of evil, and that magical moment when it all kicks into high gear and you ride off to a shining victory....

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is Adorable But Frustrating

 

Square Enix's latest Final Fantasy game on the DS is a retro return to the franchise's roots. We review Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light.

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is a game I would recommend to hardcore RPG fans – but only if you can get it in a post-Christmas sale. While it’s cute, has great music, has its fun moments, and introduces a great new job system with the crowns,...

There was a moment towards the end of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light where the game broke me. The boss I was attempting had killed me five times and on every attempt I had to re-do the puzzle leading up to him. I know what you're thinking: so...

Another “crowning” underachievement.

Crown system works well; Simple, easy-to-use battle system

with pointless auto-targeting; Uninteresting story with little direction; Do I throw out a potion for a new sword?; Too much bad "old-school", not enough good

Admittedly, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is not the same as the classics from two decades ago, but nothing ever will be. This is as close as we're getting for now, so take advantage of this opportunity.

If saving the world isn't enough action for you, then you can save the world AND wear a cool hat that lets you unlock special abilities.

Gamertell Review: Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light for DS

 

It's best to think of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light as an experiment, rather than a Final Fantasy spin-off. It's more like an original touch screen RPG inspired by classic entries in the Final Fantasy series. Square Enix is presenting DS owners...

28 crowns to collect, each with unique abilities. Storybook graphics, can use touch screen or standard controls, cute characters, challenging at times, can power up crowns to earn new abilities, can upgrade weapons, there’s a nice assortment of...

Story seems trunicated sometimes and some people may get lost when trying to figure out what to do next

Portable and viable.

Heroes Of Light crams a lot into a small cartridge, so as with the saccharine Mystic Quest, some aspects of gameplay are needlessly smoothed over. Your characters can no longer choose the target of attacks, spells, or items. When you die, you get to...

If I haven't made it clear already, this is the driving point: 4 Heroes of Light is not a game for the faint of heart. Most of your time will be spend leveling up your characters, and you'll frequently find yourself wasting hours just fighting...

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light

 

Four Heroes of Light is very much its own thing; quaint and deceptively difficult - a combination that fans of the genre should grab hold of with both hands.

After saving Princess Aire, who just so happens to be another of the four heroes of light, the crown system becomes available. Essentially evolutions of the age-old job system, crowns allow the player to change the class of their character on the fly...
