5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive FFIV experience April 21, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
FFIV (or, FFII in the US SNES release) redefined how gamers saw RPG's. The first appearance of the Active Time Battle (ATB) system, a deep but easily followable story, hilarious translations (who can forget seeing "You spoony Bard" the first time and being like WTF? :) and deep gameplay made this the first of many FF's that gamers have played, and indeed many things that appeared in FFIV have appeared in many other games since.

This all being said, this is no less than the 4th remake of this game (it has also been rereleased/refreshed on the PS1, GBA and DS). Since the DS game took the gameplay in a much different direction (MUCH harder difficulty, the "augment" system, 3D graphics, etc) it's more than a little unfair to compare the two games, they play drastically different. So for the purpose of this review I'll stick to comparisons between the SNES/PS1/GBA games.

For those that have played FFIV in one of those other releases, you're not getting much more here. The game has the same individual weapon challenges (each players "ultimate" weapon) as the GBA release did. The difficuly also is around the same (however, for me at least, it sure SEEMS like the enemy isn't attacking nearly as quick as they should compared to the others). This probably has the best translation of the Japanese text as well vs. the other versions.

What really makes this a must buy are the two add-ons: Interlude (which connects FFIV and FFIV: The After Years, and then The After Years itself, which was only previously released as a Japanese phone game and on WiiWare.

Interlude is BRUTALLY tough compared to the other 2 parts of this package (your first clue should be Cecil starting out at level 30). If you don't grind you're going to die, a lot of times in 1 hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Final Fantasy IV Experience June 1, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I won't bother wasting time with a summary of the game, styles of gameplay, or any other typical nuance. I mean, this is Final Fantasy IV, and chances are, if you are buying this game, then you have played it before. If you have not, all I will say is that you are in for a treat: FFIV remains one of the best games in the Final Fantasy series. For everyone else, though, a few thoughts on why this is a good buy:

1) The original experience of the game (ie all abilities, items, equipment, etc) are all here, in similar fashion to the DS remake

2) Dissimilar to the DS remake, this version of the game follows the SFAM JP release difficulty; for those who have played through the DS version, this will mean a significant downgrade in terms of challenge. Then again, for long-time fans, you may not end up caring one way or another. Your mileage may definitely vary on this point.

3) Graphically, the game is a mixed bag, but mostly people should be pleased with the results. It adopts the greater level of detail that originated with The After Years and runs with it...no slick 3D cut scenes, but it does have a polished feel to it that reminds me more of the original game than any other version as of late.

4) Depending on who you ask, this will either be a let-down or an improvement, but there are certain scenes (not cut scenes, though those were omitted, as well) which do not appear in this version - they were a couple of places in the DS version that were added in to give depth to a "certain" character. Those familiar with the FFIV GBA release will recognize a lot of that game's added content had remained, however.

5) The Interlude is a decent diversion, but it does not add a great deal to the experience.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Final Fantasy IV is the game that made me fall in love with RPGs back when it was released on the SNES. I've been playing this game for two decades now, and I'm full of nostalgia for every aspect of the original release: from the music to the pace of the gameplay to the characters. You would think that this would make me and others like me the prime target for a release like this, but the reason this game is getting 5 stars is not because of my nostalgia, it's in spite of it.

I have played other releases of this game before. I played the Nintendo DS version in its supposed 3D glory. That's not a 5-star game. It just barely lived up to the name for me. It was serviceable, at best. The sound processor on the DS didn't do the music justice, and the 3D graphics only served to suck the artistry out of the sprites. No, the original sprites weren't beautiful, but people mistake better technology for better appearance. Next-gen consoles of today can do three dimensional polygonal characters that rival the best 2D artistry, but that doesn't mean that all games with 3D look better than 2D games. I'd argue that there's more detail in Final Fantasy VI's 16-bit sprite characters than there is in Final Fantasy VII's polygonal ones, nevermind the pre-rendered backgrounds. The 40-polygon blocky characters were just ugly. It's the same deal with Final Fantasy IV DS versus the PSP version.

With that being said, here is why I consider this to be the ultimate version of Final Fantasy IV:

-The best looking version of the game. Beautiful sprites, spell effects, and movies bring the game to life better than any other release, utilizing a masterful artist to draw the characters without converting the art to a chunky 3D model.
