NZGamer: Final Fantasy IV Review

NZGamer writes: "Final Fantasy IV is without a shadow of a doubt the best of Square Enix's latest hand-held remakes. Originally released in 1991 on the Super Nintendo, it is to this day praised for its emotional narrative and epic plot with one of the best combat systems a Final Fantasy has seen. On the Nintendo DS, the core turn-based gameplay remains much the same but it's the graphics and some minor flourishes that make it earn its title as a remake. Despite the lack of changes to the core game, Final Fantasy IV is as engaging as it ever was.

The story goes that a once just king has become maddened and is on a campaign to secure a collection of mystical crystals and - as you'd expect - destroy the world. I guess it's just what bad dudes wanna do. Though this will sound all too familiar to Final Fantasy vets, things are mixed up by the lead hero not being a whiny brat - he's actually a celebrated warrior whose internal conflict between loyalty to his king and doing what's right drives the narrative with more originality than most all Final Fantasy games."

The story is too old to be commented.
