The 4th installment of the RPG genre-defining series Final Fantasy. Originally released in 1991 for the then hugely popular console, SNES. It was the second game in the series to be released outside Japan, at the time of its original release. After 14 years of its original release, it was ported on GBA in 2005. Although the game was very similar to its original release on the SNES, the GBA version had some minor changes or I must say improvements, mainly on the graphics part, like backgrounds were changed (improved) and the sprites (Character Forms) were also made better. Additional features like bestiary (An Encyclopedia on the in-game monsters), music of the game were also added, which can be accessed from the starting screen of the game. An additional dungeon (On The Moon) was also added. Overall the game was very nice and contained the originality of the original SNES version, this game is very much to be enjoyed.
Frankly, there was nothing in the game to be hated, everything was in the right spot and in the right shape, but, yes the monster fights can be sometimes annoying.
The Bottom Line
A gem in the RPG genre games. A must play title for fans of RPGs, decent stories, final fantasy and others also. With a little number of flaws there are a lot of good things about the game, which single handedly outweighs the flaws. I'll give it a 4 out of 5!
