Final Fantasy IV

"A big part of my childhood."

94

Loved

by 1 Jurors

Final Fantasy IV is the fourth game in the Final Fantasy series. Originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the game has been subsequently re-released for the PlayStation, the WonderSwan Color, the Game Boy Advance, the Nintendo DS, the PlayStation Portable, iOS and Android.

It was originally released in North America as Final Fantasy II. This altered numbering system caused the game Final Fantasy VI to be numbered Final Fantasy III, leading to quite a bit of confusion when the PlayStation game Final Fantasy VII (which retained the number VII outside Japan) came out. A sequel, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, was released for Japanese mobile phones in February 2008. The sequel was released via WiiWare in the US on June 1, 2009, and is included in Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection for the PlayStation Portable.

The 3D remake was released for Steam on September 17, 2014.

When I was a kid my dad and I used to rent this game from the local Blockbuster almost every week. It was fun to be at my mom's house for a week and then rent the game again and see that someone else had played my game. 

I love this game, but it's not perfect. The score isn't 100 because of a few bugs and changes that made the US version "easier" than the Japanese game. Abilities were taken away from characters to make the game simpler and references to religion were downplayed. 

"Prayers" became "Wishes" and "Holy" became "White" to satisfy Nintendo of America's rather cumbersome censorship policy at the time.

But that being said, the game is fun. It's very much a JRPG with a mostly linear plot. There are maybe three or four major sidequests you can go on (that usually are necessary to win the game without too much trouble)... and then there are a couple of areas with extra treasure that aren't part of the plot.

It wasn't until Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger that Nintendo had the plot become less linear with switching party members out.

In the original FFII/FFIV SNES/Super Famicom game, there was no optional party, with every member change being plot-driven.

The GBA version added bonus content and the ability to switch between party members near the end of the game, but the DS version of the game removed that and added a "New Game+" feature with augments.

Overall this game stands up well and I'd recommend the Steam/PC version over most. It's the same game as the Android version which is based on the DS version of the game.
