Pocket Gamer: Final Fantasy IV Review

Pocket Gamer writes: "Remakes are always a dangerous business. On the one hand, you've got the defensive old hands that are already suspicious of anyone tampering with a classic. On the other hand, there's the new players. The ones who are looking for fresh and interesting twists and who don't care for nostalgic nonsense. How do you reconcile them? By carefully choosing what to polish, what to remove, and what to bring into the 21st Century. Final Fantasy IV is a textbook example of how to bring a classic adventure into the next generation of gaming.

It's another typically epic affair from Square Enix, dragged from the depths of 1994 with a fittingly epic paint job to match. The plot follows Cecil, a knight of the Baron Empire forced into exile when the kingdom is manipulated into war by an evil outsider. It's a far more classical fantasy affair than the steampunk stylings of other RPGs in the series, but don't fear if you're not a Lord of the Rings fan - it's still lightweight enough to breeze through without taking much notice of all the talk of prophecies and destinies."
