Remakes are not always as grand as the original. With Final Fantasy IV for the Nintendo DS, just go ahead and forget about the typical remakes. One of the greatest stories in video game history has been remade and it's actually better than the original. Originally titled 'Final Fantasy II', this was perhaps the game that made console RPGs what they are today.
Modern gamers may consider this title to be linear and repetitive, but any true fan of classic JRPGs will appreciate this re-release. When the game was released in 1991, it completely blew me away. I had a feeling that playing the 2008 re-make would be too familiar, but the story is still something worth reliving.
