This game is an awesome remake of a twenty year old game and is now one of my personal favourates.
I'ts a little harder than the old one, but this doesn't matter because you'll be hooked on it for ages, with over 30 hours of slick, brilliant gameplay.
The storyline is phenomenal, the gameplay is addictive and the boss battles are actually quite stategic, and the fully voiced cut scenes just add to excitment. Overall this is an amazing game. Highly recommended.
I did order this from Amazon.co.uk on pre order, but was very let down when I got an email from them saying it was delayed for 1 month!
I looked at Amazon Market place, where it is cheaper and also in stock. I received mine very promptly.
I never played any of the early Final Fantasy games. I started at FF7. But when the old games were released on the PS1, some years back I did start and play some.
This game on the DS is great. The game has been redone lovingly tight to the old one. The graphics are fab for this little DS and the relationships between the characters are believable, and the bond between them is strong.
The story line is fantastic, and also there are some tear jerker moments in the game.
I have just gotten an airship from Cid, and so at the moment I am leveling up my characters and getting as much HP as possible to face a very hard boss between the dark elf!
The castles and the villages are great where there is an inn, a pub, shops ext. I couldn't stop laughing when I was turned into a toad by the Black Madge in Mysidia!
The music is also stunning, and the world map music is one of the best world map scores to date.
There are Chocobo Forests, and you get to catch a Black Chocobo and fly it! You can also summon monsters in this game. Summoner is Rydia.
Your party has set roles. Dark Night, White Madge, Black Mage, Summoner, Bard etc. Each character is vital in the battles. You learn abilities after you've battled, as well as get gil, more hp/mp points etc.
The battle system is easy, and slick.
There are save points in the dungeons, near to the boss, and you can use tent and cottage to heal your party, as well as save.
Get this game. You wont be disappointed.
As an old game with a new gloss of paint containing voice acting, animated cut scenes and a few extras this is new retro in the same vein as the FFIII remake. However IV is the stronger game considerably, most owing to the far greater source material. It provides a great opportunity for fans of the original to wander down the path of memory lane but without having to squint at small characters on a small screen, or dust off their old SNES. For new-comers it provides a slightly archaic but still enjoyable RPG romp that gives some history into the evolution of the series.
One of the main improvements, and certainly a necessary one is the inclusion of a map that completes as you explore a dungeon. This saves on unnecessary back-tracking and also makes locating treasure chests much less painful. There are also mini-games to help train up a new character that can be summoned by a member of your party. They're pretty basic but can provide a fun distraction from the main quest.
The flaws in the game such as difficulty spikes and grinding are still prevalent however grinding has now become much more of a chore. In the original you were zapped straight into a random battle and could end it pretty swiftly meaning that despatching low level peons wasn't too time consuming. Due to the graphical improvements the battles now have a similar cut-scene feel that started in FF7 and have made random battles more of a curse than they ever were. Now a random battle can take up to three times as long as it would've done in the original which makes it three times the chore.Read more ›
Final Fantasy IV however is in my opinion an amazing game for the DS its been handled with care and attention. The story is not as dramatic as todays standards of story telling in games but still its fun and has a classic feel to it. Graphics are very nice for the DS with some fully voiced cut scenes that help bring the characters to life which there are many and most are really cool (find out for your self).
I am about 30 hours in to the game and still have few things to do, i should also mention that this game is though but as long as you spend time to level up you will be fine.
I have the force unleashed for my 360 sitting on a shelf but that can wait until i fininsh this, choosing my DS over my 360? This game must be good.
If you like Final Fantasy you will love if you dont maybe you should try this.
I hope they foloow up with some more remakes i would love to try V and VI and maybe one day square might give the world what it wants Final Fantasy VII the remake?

Not as much fun as FF 3. I had forgot all about until I was prompted to review it. I found it frustrating and full. This may irk the purists.Published on 28 Sept. 2014 by Alister Crompton
