Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Review

 

Set 18 years after the events of Final Fantasy IV, we join Ceodore on his quest to become a knight.

Both currently available quests have replay value through the presence of a tough bonus dungeon. This extra area contained different treasures each time you go through, so multiple trips are worth it. Also, once you finished each section, you can save...

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

 

Micro-transactions? Square's taking us for a ride

Fan service with a smile ; Cool to see old characters again ; Tastefully updated graphics

Way too expensive ; Story feels fragmented ; Far too many random battles

A good game is still a good game regardless of its price, but FFIV: The After Years’ narrative is needlessly fragmented due to Square’s decision to split the full game up into lots of expensive little chunks. Factor in the fact that large swathes of...

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years [Wii]

 

Reviewed on the Nintendo Wii.

Tried and true gameplay ; Strong build up to the story ; New features fit in with the established game

Most expensive WiiWare game yet ; Old school graphics and sound might be a turnoff to some

A worthy follow-up to one of the best RPGs of yesteryear, but you might not want to wait three months to get the rest of the game.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

 

This egregious, twisted mess of narrative is not an auspicious start to Square Enix's latest foray into the realm of episodic content.

Disjointed, poorly constructed narrative ; Story that shamelessly strip mines fan nostalgia ; Absurdly high random encounter rate ; Very, very, short

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

 

Ever since Final Fantasy X-2, the main Final Fantasy installments have now begun to have their own sequels and spin-offs, most notably with FFVII. While it's a move that may be a quick cash-in, it also gives new life to main installments and give...

Ultimately, TAY is a game meant for Final Fantasy IV fans, but for what it does, it does very well. It may not exceed the classic, but the FFIV magic carries on, and it's a satisfying experience with much more to come. If you are a fan of FFIV, do not...

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

 

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is the 2nd WiiWare Role Playing Game for Nintendo's Wii gaming console and hopefully we will see more. It is also a new way to play a game on the console as to see and play the full Final Fantasy IV: The After Years...

Some good story telling mixed with solid RPG gaming ; Extends the great FFIV ; DLC out now and more coming (7 in total) to expand the game to massive heights

Graphics are not as good as they should be ; Very difficult at times ; Band mechanic doesn't work well at all at first ; This is only for old school Final Fantasy fans not fans of VII and on

The additional character tales are known as Rydia’s Tale, Palom’s Tale, Porom’s Tale, The Lunarians’ Tale, Yang’s Tale, Edge’s Tale and Edward's Tale. To play these you must purchase them for an additional 300 Nintendo Points (at this time) each, which...
