Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging but worth the work. This game is pretty awesome. I played the game back when i was a mere lad and enjoyed it then, so when my english teacher challenged us with a video game project i decided to revisit this game. I fell in love with the game all over again, there are so many reoccuring themes that translate so well to the time frame that the game is played in. The most solid theme was that even the greatest of things can be the worst of things in the wrong hands. All of the elemental crystals are getting liberated by Golbez who just recently overthrew Baron. Cecil, your character, was the commander of the Red Wings which is the air fleet for Baron. Cecil is a dark knight for a chunk of the game but after a certain event that would be a spoiler he becomes a paladin. He must prevent the crystals from getting into the hands of Golbez but he isnt alone. Many great characters help you along the way, some also hinder you. I wouldnt recommend this game to someone who plans on breezing right by it because it is a rather hard game to finish, i cant count how many times my team died. All that frustration was worth it though because you get a good sense of satisfaction when you beat a boss that seems unbeatable. The book has some sad side stories with it to, Cecil has a girlfriend named Rosa that gets captured by Golbez. On top of that, two kid twins join your party at one point and end up sacrificing themselves to save you. yes this game is a tear jerker. I recommend this game to anyone with a pulse and free time, this is the only Final Fantasy game i have played so far but that will soon change. The format of the gameplay is pretty good too, each team member has a bar that charges up and when its full you can decide how to attack. Thats also why the game is really hard because you have to make quick decisions while enemies are attacking, but i like that because it keeps you on your toes and ive never played a game in that format. The one thing i dont like is how linear some of the characters are, when they level up you dont decide what gets stronger, the game generates it. plus you cant decide what moves to get, your character already has all of them. Other than that this game is one of my faves and everyone should give Final Fantasy a shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Final Fantasy IV (feels like a PS2 title) When I started playing this game my first thought was "How am I playing a PS2 without a TV?" This game made me feel real nostalgic toward my old PS2 (before it chocked on me R.I.P. T-T). Voice acting in a Final Fantasy game (classic remakes anyways) are rare (unless the PSP versions have voice acting *shrugs*). Also, the battle system is simplistic just like the orignal SNES and GBA versions. I'd say get the PSP version, but the PSP version is in 2D, not 3d; also it has The After Years on the disc, but it's just a re-do sequel of FFIV. Get this game you PS2 lovers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so good but annoying at one point the game is really good. preaty much ebry thing is great. BUT, if you die, you have to start from the very beginging. i was so early in the story and i died and then i had to wait like 15 min to get back to where i was. just because of cut seans. but thank gosh for copy files.\

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fans of Final Fantasy games will not be let down. Anyone who has played a FF game in the last 5 yrs knows that improving graphics are its shining light. FFIV continues this tradition, with great clips and animation throughout the game. On DS, game developers have stuck closely to the original storyline in previous titles and in this one as well. The gameplay is as challenging as other FF titles, making you think and act quickly in battles. For gamers who wish for easier battles, simply change your settings from the game menu. Personally, the faster, the better! One improvement in this title is that if you get lost on your quest, you can access your menu and read a caption from your character and remind yourself of what is the next challenge in the story. All around, the game is amazing and very addicting, despite the usual long boss battles. I highly recommend this for those who want a good classic RPG to play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FFIV gets a great remake on DS. A perfect remake of a nearly perfect game. It's game play style is just brilliant. It takes classic Final Fantasy RPG battle style, and speeds it up a bit. You have as long as you want to choose an attack, an item, or whatever, but the enemy will not take turns. The one frustration is how long it takes you to prepare for a boss battle. You have to do a lot of training, and gain a lot of experience before you can fight the boss. I highly recommend the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best remakes ever this game was epic!!!!! its got to be the second best game in the whole series (the best is of course ffix) so our story starts out with a young man named cecil who is captin of barons mighty red wings shortly after arriving home he is relived from his command of the red wings and your epic quest begins. this game was amazing the battles were kinda slow but it was a good thing when you were fighting a hard boss. you prolly dont want to play this game in you are new to rpg though you could this games story took many twists and turns and ultamently (dont know if i spelt that right) is an amazing game
