Final Fantasy IV Review for the Nintendo GameBoy Advance, GBA

Note: The Story section of this review contains story spoilers.  Intro: The original game was published by square enix for the Super NES with an American Release in 1991 as Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy IV Advance (for the Gameboy Advance). Playing FFIV again for the first time in a while, it seems I've forgotten a lot about the story.  The world we live in has moved on, and indeed, so has the game, with 3D graphics ports released for the Nintendo DS, mobile translation, and PC platforms (and updated 2D graphics for the PSP). Still, though the old 2D sprite's version shows its age in many ways, it's a game that any old-school Final Fantasy fans of the series or of RPG history should play, and it remains surprisingly fun years after its release. The Story: Fans of modern RPG storytelling owe a debt of gratitude to Final Fantasy IV....

Indiana Jones and The Infernal Machine Review, Nintendo 64
