    FFIV is still the same ol' game, as classic and playable as ever, but SE expecting you to pay for it once again (along with the joke that is Interlude and the hit-or-miss After Years) is outright greedy.

I found the DS version of FFIV to be entertaining, but the graphic style just didn't do it for me, and I feel that since this PSP rerelease is a more refined 2D art style, it is the more visually appealing game between the two. The actual FFIV still holds up and this is the best version of it with extras for fans (viewing the extra games as extras here) Full Review »

I started at 8 ('84) with a nes, but didn't get into the rpg scene until about 2005 with FFX on PS2 and also played about 1/4 way through FFXII. I've played about 80% of all zelda titles, and plan on completing all of them, as well as the FF series. That is why these PSP remakes are a Godsend. The extremely crisp updated graphics make every town an absoulte pleasure to explore, and the level of detail doesn't leave much for the imagination to correct - no hard, jagged 8-bit style steps here, just crisp, rounded edges. As far as gameplay, I'm am absolutely thrilled it is all intact and untouched so because I get to experience what made it a classic in the first place. All in all, if you missed out first time round, get all the psp remakes, and if you don't have a psp, then this should be reason enough. Peace yall. Full Review »

    The combat I found to be very standard, really nothing to get excited about.
    The story I really loved, until I didn't. Without going into spoilers, quite a ways into the game the pull a few "Just kidding! They didn't REALLY die!" cards in a row. It just took all of the emotional impact out of the game for me as anytime anything bad happened I was just waiting for it because they did it so many times.
    Also, I only really cared for the original IV. IV-2 & 3 were both just quite lackluster and I didn't even bother finishing 3 after about 20 hours spent on it.
    IV is worth getting and playing through if you've played many other Final Fantasy titles and would like to see the rest.
