Janelle Hindman weighs the good, the bad, and the in-betweens that seem likely to once again divide the Final Fantasy fanbase.
She notes in her revew, "Hikari no 4 Senshi is a tough call. The game has some obvious quirks and problems that will be huge turn-offs to some players, particularly the auto-targeting and limited inventory. It takes a few risks in that regard. If the idea of not being able to have full control over characters in battle is frustrating, then stay far, far away from Hikari no 4 Senshi. On the other hand, the game is lighthearted, fast-paced, and boasts a management and customization system with plenty of possibilities for players, providing an intuitive and fun battle experience and a hint of warm, fuzzy nostalgia to top it off. Players who don't mind a little awkwardness will enjoy this humble Final Fantasy side story."
