Ratings and Reviews
So far, so good.
This was the first big adventure game I played as a kid. I still remember getting Final Fantasy 2 for the SNES on release day. I have such fond memories of playing this game. So far this game is bringing back some really good memories. The graphics are crisp and a little cleaner than I remember, but I do welcome the changes. The upgraded audio is fantastic. I do wish there was an option to use the original 16-but audio as well, maybe in a future patch. I also enjoy the auto battle with faster speed for some the generic random battles, and no mods to turn off random battles. My only real gripe is the same with any console game on mobile, I am not a fan of touch screen. I play this at random various times (like at work) so using a controller is pretty much a no-go anyways. But being able to play this anywhere is being super cool. Can’t wait for FFVI now.
Welcome take on a classic
This was my first RPG back in the 90s, and I’m happy to say it holds up. I’ve played most
versions of IV, most recently the 3D one. If there’s something about the 3D reimagining that I disliked, it’s how slow the whole experience felt, from combat to dialogue. Every little fight took like a minute to resolve. In this version you can get through most random encounters in 20 seconds, which keeps the pace up, like the original did. The music is outstanding and the rearranged tracks strike a good balance between the classic MIDIs and real instrumentation. All sprites look fantastic, and they’ve added really cool particle animations to spell effects etc.
- Horrible font, would welcome an option for the classic pixel fonts
- No controller support
- Touch d-pad is awful, use tap to move instead (though tap to move doesn’t work for discovering secret passages)
- Easier than the 3D version (I never wiped in the entire play through)
The ONLY reason I’m not giving 5 stars…
The only reason this masterpiece isn’t getting 5 stars is because of Square Enix’s puzzling decision not to have controller support. Don’t get me wrong, the touch controls work fine but are not ideal. The Steam version supports controllers and other Square titles like Chrono Trigger and even other FF titles support them on iOS so what’s the deal?? Also would really prefer a console port of these games since they belong there. Still one of my favorite Final Fantasy games and they nailed it when it comes to the soundtrack. Please add controller support though. Please!
