  • What is wrong with the fights?

    By HimuraKenshin
    First off, I chose Normal difficulty. Let that be known. I'm 30 minutes into the game, leveling up on the main map with Kain. Almost all of my fights start with a Surprised! or Back Attack! not in my favor. Then I get into a fight and before I could even get one attack out there, four birds turned both my characters to stone and gave me a Game Over. I got into another fight against those same 4 birds and barely won with Kain surviving. Now Kain is the leader with no obvious way of switching lead back to Cecil after healing him. (FYI, you do it on the game screen. You tap the character to change between party members) Lastly, I have Auto enabled. And when I don't have Back Attack, and my ATB meter is full I should attack immediately. Not let my characters politely sit there and get hit by all 4-5 enemies before finally attacking. It might as well been Surprised or Back Attack at that point. I don't know what you did to this game to create such frustration, but something needs to be done. I didn't choose Hard so it shouldn't be like this. Get rid of those birds from the starting area is one idea. Lower the rate of Surprised and Back Attack is another. Change how fast Auto chooses my attacks. And this is within the first 30 minutes of play!

    This is a port of the DS version, which I personally like more than the SNES original. Pros: Voice-Acting Real cutscenes Great gameplay Great visuals Better than the DS version Fun It's Final Fantasy Cons: The menus are a little iffy The over world looks a little...meh Not fully voice-acted Overall I would give this game a 8.5/10 If you like FF then you will LOVE this game. If you're a casual FF player, I think you would still enjoy it.
  • Irritating

    This game completely lacks the cursor memory setting which has been a standard in this series long before this, or even the DS port that this is based on, was released. This gets very irritating during longer boss battles, because you have to manually select the action you want every turn. The auto battle feature, unlike the FFV iOS port, only repeats an action you determine in some relatively obscure menu before battle. The previously mentioned FFV's auto battle button repeats the previous action. All of these factors combine to make playing this game feel like a chore. The "back" button in the battle menu is on the top right of the screen, while the action menu is on the bottom left. It's very inconvenient and unintuitive; I often find myself extremely frustrated. I'm not a huge fan of the graphics of the DS remake but I'm not factoring that into my score, because, as far as the graphics go, I knew what I was getting when I bought this. I'm pretty sure most of my problems with this version should actually be directed at the DS port, and most of these problems could easily be fixed. However, they still create unnecessary difficulty and....eh I don't feel like writing anymore. You get the point. I still give it two and a half to three stars because the game underneath these **** controls is solid.
  • Just one more thing...

    I had heard that you can keep Edward in the game boy advanced. (It might be after years I'm confused with) I want to use the spoony bard at his full potential. I want to use this broken character. WHY CAN'T I!? People will argue that Edward is the weakest character, but, at level 70 and beyond, his stats skyrocket.
  • Love it But also Hate It

    By Not Too Awesome For Kids
    The story is really good and I love the battle system. What I really hate is that some bosses, like Dr. Lagae. I didn't do any level grinding up to that point and always loss the 3rd battle. I had to go back and level up. What I also find really stupid is, why in the world the DS version!? 1. ITS EXTREMELY UGLY 2. FOR DEVICES LIKE IPADS IT LAGS which makes the battle slow The PSP version looks much better and I don't care if it's in 2D. At least everyone didn't look like small *ss children. If they did PSP version, then there wouldn't be lag. Sometimes I find this game annoying because in the underworld, there are flamehounds. Their scorch attack really pisses me off because when you get ambushed, they all use the scorch attack (3 flamehounds: very common) the party dies. The thing I mostly care about is playing the game and carrying on with the story. I try not to pay attention to the graphics, but I can't. When the characters talk, I find it really funny, especially when Cid talks. His mouth is humongous and everyone else's mouth are so tiny. Overall, the game is decent.

    It's been a year, come on! Don't let all your games fall on the waste side because your focusing too much on that "free" game crap everyone's obsessing about now. We paid money (and not a little bit) for these games, and you only have 1, 1 GAME, that's updated in 2017! Come on, Square!
  • Don't Like This Version

    This is a port of the DS version. If you're looking for SNES nostalgia be forewarned. The biggest drawback is the leveling doesn't work the same. Returning characters come back at set levels. As a result level grinding has to take place as you go rather than running solo work with Cecil on Mt Ordeals. I also can't stand the perspective. You can't see as much of the world around you so running through dungeons and caves feels very claustrophobic. There are some positives. I enjoy the cut scenes. There is also some balancing to compensate for the differences in leveling characters while they're not in the party. And I do enjoy the graphics. I also like being able to run. All in all what I was looking for in a port for my phone to kill time here and there was a copy of the SNES version. This is not that. Thus my overall disappointment. I can't say if I will actually finish playing through. If not it was a waste of $15.
  • Great story, character, and music

    Loved it. Played a difficult version and it kicked my butt. But I cleared it! Highly recommended.
  • Terrible Port Decision

    By LeonBelmont12
    Don't get me wrong, I love Final Fantasy IV. It's actually one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. However, I don't know why they chose to go with the DS port (slow frame rate with ugly graphics and stupid character design) instead of the PSP port (a visual remaster of the classic 2D game for the SNES). My biggest issue is the frame rate. It makes the battles much slower than they are, and it just isn't easy on the eyes. Also, I can't take any of the cutscenes in this game seriously because of the Wind Waker style models. Terrible port for a good game.
  • Why the DS port?

    By I have a lot of hate
    The 3D version of this game is so distracting that I feel like I can't breathe every time I try to play it. The screen is stretched and you can see this easily by looking at the fonts. Why the PSP version wasn't ported to mobile is beyond me; that version retained the original 2D graphics, but enhanced. Go play this game on an emulator and do not buy this one. Oh, and the game can do without the voice acting. Give me a break.
