    This is the "easy" version of the game. A waste of time if you ask me. Stick to the original on SNES (also available on the Wii virtual console). This is yet another dumbed down remake from Square, for the younger generation of gamers who don't play any games with any sort of challenge. The controls are terrible too; the virtual buttons make it very awkward to play.

    Under the goo-goo eyes and the rather clumsily animated characters hides a challenging old school role-playing experience that punishes every little mistake you might make in your battle strategy. But more importantly: The magic of an era long forgotten is still there.

    Here and there there are still remnants of outdated formulas, but in the end what really counts is the plot, the world and the legendary alter ego; from this point of view Final Fantasy IV cannot disappoint.

    The overall story, character development and pacing are excellent. The modifications to the core gameplay, whether they were changed from the US SNES version to the DS version or created exclusively for the iOS port, make the game more accessible to a wider audience.
