    There are many versions of Final Fantasy IV (originally known as Final Fantasy II in the USA, as it is labelled here). If you have never played any of them, and you own a Wii, stop reading this and download Final Fantasy II on the Virtual Console service. If you have never played a Final Fantasy game before, and thought "RPGs aren't for me", stop reading this and download FFII. Or, buy one of the many versions available now on virtually every modern console. Easily one of the finest video games ever made, with a deep storyline, engaging characters, an easy-to-learn combat system and a good learning curve. You will LOVE this game. Collapse

    i dont know how im the first to review this game this was one of the staple RPG's of the SNES days . on with the review . for its day its story telling and charicters where very well done . the combat system was also extremly well done . the game has a great plot twist . you know its easier to say i really cant think of any thing negitive to say about this game . it was such a great RPG that i was sad when it ended because i wanted there to be more . it was just that damn good of a RPG . the game has been remade a bunch of different times and is now reffered to as FF4 but to me it will always be final fantasy 2 and one of the best RPG;s of the 16 bit era.

    This was a definite high point in this franchise. At the time, the narrative for this game seemed quite amazing. For a roleplaying game, this even had a good deal of replay value. With an entertaining story, varied character skills, and a lot of cool bosses, this game was very addicting. Expand
