FFIV does not dissapoint. Classic remake turns to 3d with great new graphics, and many more extra's only in the DS version. FF fans will rejoice. I just wish i was an FF fan, but i know that there games are good.

Square broke what didn't need fixing.

This is the game that drew me in to the world of RPG's. An engaging story, memorable characters, plot twists, depth, you name it and this game has is. Seems to me though that Square "broke" this game after remaking it twice before (On the PS1 and GBA). Yeah, the updated visuals are nice and the voice acting adds a little something...but it seems the difficulty is ramped WAY up. On the SNES it was somewhat challenging, on the GBA, you had to use quite a bit of strategy as it was the "Hard" version. But this abomination requires endless hours of level grinding and frustration over boss deaths, completely sucking the joy out of the game. In my opinion, get the GBA version in all it's 16 bit glory or grab Chrono Trigger for the DS.

From the opening cut scenes, FFIV draws you in...

You remember Final Fantasy IV for the Game Boy Advance, don't you? Not only was it the best Final Fantasy out for the GBA at the time, it was the hardest as well.

Now, Square Enix has remade a classic, giving it better graphics and some new features whilst retaining the same level of difficulty we've come to know.

Introducing, Whytkin!:
This little guy can be summoned by Rydia and trained in the combat areas (intellegence, strength) by playing a number of mini-games that require wit and reflex.

Wayfinder's map:
This handy map will record a dungeon's innards automatically. All you have to do is walk around! And, when you complete the map 100%, you recieve item(s) i.e three potions.

Cutscenes:
These are so fun to watch; the voice acting is good.

Stylus:
Unfortunately, the game does not require heavy use of the stylu -you can use it to move by holding it against the map, but not in battle.
