  • Not cool

    By Zzd93
    Got about 30 mins into gameplay and BGM stopped working. Still can hear battle effects and menu clicking but no BGM (it IS turned on)
  • Wonderful classic remastered and orgasmic to the senses!

    The title of this review is my review.
  • Needs more work

    By Sinfocker
    Game story is amazing but the frame rate is very bad. Square Enix needs to update this game and fix the battle frame rates. It’s drops to 20 FPS very bad.
  • Great port

    By Dough Arr
    I was hesitant about using touch controls, but they work great in this port. The cloud save feature is amazing for switching between phone and tablet. Could be optimized better for iPhone X.
  • Okay, buddy...

    Listen here, if your only complaint is the "3D blocky graphics", shut up and go home. This was remade for the DS before it was ported over to mobile. What?! A (more or less) 3D based, handheld console got 3D-ish game remakes released on it? Noooooo waaaaay! They were REVAMPED to make way for the NEXT GENERATION of 3D based consoles. I didn't hear anyone complain about Ruby/Sapphire remakes and how it was "3D" and "too blocky". Bet you'd sit there and complain about it if they released it on the phone, though, wouldn't you? Of course you would. Don't tell me no, don't lie to me, I know you, you've already shown who you are. So, once again, if your only complaint is "It's too 3D! It's too blocky! Not everything's perfect and I'm too stupid to understand that, I'm a f*ckin crybaby!" then go home and shut up.
  • Difficulty is whacked

    By Renwa82
    I would forewarn you to not select the Hard mode if you like to grind out levels to make the game easier for you. I put in about 8 hours of grinding levels in areas that gave good experience and I’m just barely surviving fights in that first tower you are trying to save Rosa from. I should be annihilating these enemies. So, my complaint is that enemies are overpowered and your characters are underpowered with both physical attackers and magic wielders. Even when using the correct strategy, you run into ridiculous situations where you quickly run out of MP points. Why in the hell does Tellah only have 90 MP points at level 36!? He’s got all these fantastic spells and he can’t use them without running out of MP super fast. And then to add insult to injury, they really string you along with Ethers so that you have to be oh so frugal otherwise you are out before you know it. You cannot buy them at least this far into game. You can only find them on maps. I hate how difficult they’ve made this. Hard work does not pay. There is simply no relief. I played this game on the Nintendo and it was never this hard. I’m sorry but they need to rebalance this game. Way too difficult to be fun. If I cannot even work hard to get ahead I’m going to lose interest really fast in this game. At least enable me to change difficulty to Normal without having to start new game.
  • iPhone X optimization

    By philliphekmati
    This game looks tiny, and honestly, awful on iPhone X. A full screen update would be appreciated, even if it is an in-app purchase.
  • My Flagship

    By micahpaladin
    For all the Final Fantasy games that Square Enix offers for the iOS systems, I have every one of them. My favorite thing about all the Final Fantasy games are the journeys. FFIV is the flagship of my collection. I love the story of a conflicted warrior, who intends to do right, but finds that he must surrender his dark sword for that of the paladin. I also enjoy the movie cut scenes; it makes the game playing epic.
  • What is wrong with the fights?

    By AstralDarkstar
    First off, I chose Normal difficulty. Let that be known. I'm 30 minutes into the game, leveling up on the main map with Kain. Almost all of my fights start with a Surprised! or Back Attack! not in my favor. Then I get into a fight and before I could even get one attack out there, four birds turned both my characters to stone and gave me a Game Over. I got into another fight against those same 4 birds and barely won with Kain surviving. Now Kain is the leader with no obvious way of switching lead back to Cecil after healing him. (FYI, you do it on the game screen. You tap the character to change between party members) Lastly, I have Auto enabled. And when I don't have Back Attack, and my ATB meter is full I should attack immediately. Not let my characters politely sit there and get hit by all 4-5 enemies before finally attacking. It might as well been Surprised or Back Attack at that point. I don't know what you did to this game to create such frustration, but something needs to be done. I didn't choose Hard so it shouldn't be like this. Get rid of those birds from the starting area is one idea. Lower the rate of Surprised and Back Attack is another. Change how fast Auto chooses my attacks. And this is within the first 30 minutes of play!
  • Very solid

    By AJKTM525
    This is a port of the DS version, which I personally like more than the SNES original. Pros: Voice-Acting Real cutscenes Great gameplay Great visuals Better than the DS version Fun It's Final Fantasy Cons: The menus are a little iffy The over world looks a little...meh Not fully voice-acted Overall I would give this game a 8.5/10 If you like FF then you will LOVE this game. If you're a casual FF player, I think you would still enjoy it.
