The definition of the word "classic" 0

I’ve been playing RPGs for eight years now. Ever since I found a copy of ‘Final Fantasy VII’ in the bargain bin at my local GAME, I’ve been hooked to the series, and I own every instalment of the central series released in the UK to date. As a result of this, you may expect my review to be biased. In all honesty, it’s not. Regardless of your position as a gamer, it’s difficult not to appreciate the fourth episode in this long-running saga, released here in the UK as half of ‘Final Fantasy Anthol...

The Game That Face-Lifted An Entire Genre For Good 0

INTRODUCTION"FFIV revolutionised the genre,beyond the point of recognition,and set some highly ambitious staples,that continues to be followed by the genre,years after they were set."In 1991,very few circles of western-gamers were aware of the rising phenomena of Japanese-RPG. The genre sure had it's solid foundations credited to games like Final Fantasy I and Dragon Warrior. Yet,it lacked the all-important element of "player attachment" and memorablemoments,something which every fan of th...

Story trumps high polygon counts any day. 0

Revisiting the earlier games in the Final Fantasy series is not always easy. Ever since Cloud hopped off of the train in Midgar, Final Fantasy has been synonymous with jaw-dropping graphics and flawless presentation. As the power of the consoles has increased, the maestros behind this series have consistently surpassed what players though their hardware was capable of. There is no way that Final Fantasy IV, known as Final Fantasy II when it came out on the SNES, stands a chance against these tec...

Final Fantasy IV WSC 0

Pros - Still FF4 with some updated sprites.Cons - WSC's screen is too dark and the game has noticeable lag in menus and spell casts.Imagine, if you will, that is the year 2032 and Final Fantasy 20 has just been released. It is an instant success and for many, it becomes the one and only true Final Fantasy game. Keep in mind that most of these people have never played another Final Fantasy game in their lives. Would you, as a fan of the series, feel obligated to share the greatness of the series'...

...an engrossing bleh 0

Played Through in Winter, Spring, and Summer 09 So…you play as this guy…who has really cool looking armor and decides to get rid of it to stand up against the King he used to wear it for…which is SAD because…it was really cool looking armor... Anyway he teams up with some not so coolly dressed comrades and “Oh” the hijinx they get themselves into over some shiny ass crystals…. As you can see, this game took the majority of a year to play through to my satisfaction (all characters fully leveled, ...

Classic Example of Early-Mid Final Fantasy Games 0

 Final Fantasy IV (originally released as Final Fantasy II outside of Japan) centers around the main character Cecil, who senses his king has gone evil. The game does have chocobos. Cecil is a knight who is stripped of his title. Rosa is the main love interest for Cecil. The game uses the Active Time Battle system for battles, in which a gauge is filled up before a player can perform an action such as attack, magic, or summon. The enemies also have their own gauges. The music was composed beauti...
