Final Fantasy IV Game Review

Final Fantasy IV is the fourth main installment in the Final Fantasy franchise. For some of you confused, it used to be called Final Fantasy II in US, not to be confused with Final Fantasy II. It was the first FF game on the SNES and it clearly shows what “next” generation of FF games could bring. It was originally released in 1991, then there were a crap ton of re-releases. Most popular of these are PSP’s 2011 Complete Collection, DS’s 3D remake in 2007, and PCs DS port in 2014. I’ve had the chance to play the PSP Complete Collection as well as the PC port of the 3D remake.

Random Thoughts: Sequels

Ironically, this is sequel to Random Thoughts: Prequels.

In some sense, I feel that sequels are harder than prequels. The sequels have to live up to the original movie, usually meaning higher stakes and grander scales, and that doesn’t always mean good things.

This is going to be a long one.

Final Fantasy III Game Review

Final Fantasy III is the third FF game from Square. Final Fantasy III was released in 1990 for the Famicom. A remake was done in 2006 where the entire game was redone in 3D chibi style, and this was later ported to a lot of other platforms including the PSP. I played the PSP version of FFIII.

Final Fantasy Game Review

“Bless the Crystals!”

Final Fantasy was originally released by Square Soft in 1987. This is the game that started it all, the original Final Fantasy. The original version of the game was made for the NES, then it was ported to, let me see here, PS1, PSP, iOS, PC, MSX, Wonder Swan, Gameboy Advance, Mobile Phones, and 3DS, so a lot of different platforms. I played the PS1 version on my PS Vita.

What is in a name? The game was titled Final Fantasy because it was the last chance for success before bankruptcy for Square Soft and potentially being fired for Sakaguchi Hironobu. It really was the final dream for a company, and I am glad the title is ironic at this point. This is the beginning to fantastic world of Final Fantasy.

I played my version on my PS4.
