Reviewing Final Fantasy IV for the DS presented a unique challenge.
After Final Fantasy III’s bland and generic graphics, I didn’t think the DS had the juice to run a remake of Final Fantasy IV.
Music has always been Final Fantasy’s strong suit, and they kept the tracks basically the same.
Being an RPG, most of the game is strongly menu-driven.
Final Fantasy IV is the template for modern RPGs, so if you’ve played one, you know what you’re getting.
We’ve already talked about how this is the fourth time out for this game.
