Review Tidbits for GBA Port:

“In addition to a well-laid out story, the pixel art is incredible, the gameplay is sensible, and the music is enjoyable. Final Fantasy IV is possibly one of the best, if not the best, game of its series.”

“One hell of a great pickup for portable gaming fans and is an even better acquisition for old-school players that can’t get enough of it. No other port of the title has been as thorough or content-packed as this one.”

Review Tidbit for original game:

“The plot was done extremely well. For such a short game, the story is full of twists and turns, losses and happy moments, and really draws the player into the game. Characters come and go over the course of the game but thankfully they usually stick around long enough that any development you put into them pays off in the end… Playing FFIV can be compared to reading a darn good book, with a little action thrown in to make it above average.”

“This was the first game that broke away from the “Everyone lines up, input commands, and whomever has the better Speed stat goes first” mold of the first three Final Fantasy games and introduces a rudimentary version of the Real Time Battle system.”
