I was hoping this game would do well so they could port FF v and VI to the ds and 3ds but I guess they're only going to do Dragon quest remakes.

Good, a fair Score... DS version is much better than PSP Version. Totally agree with @Fededx

Ok, I just wasted 40 hours on this game. Now I know for sure that Final Fantasy is not for me. It was as much fun as going to the dentist, complete with reading the cheesiest dime novel in the waiting room.

Excellent remake of an excellent game. Love the difficulty : bosses are beatable at "any" level, but strategy is really important.

Combat system is just perfect. Glad to see it sold well, much more that any other ff remake (except ff3)

I absolutely love this remake. It was already my favourite game and they did such a fantastic job updating the look and translation that it'll likely be my favourite for some time.

It's a shame it didn't sell more.

Good remake, but at the end of the day I guess I still prefer the SNES version. There's a quirky charm to it that gets lost in the new art style.

Cecil is the best FF lead charater I have seen and the only FF 1,2,5, and 6 have I not played and beaten (got about 1/4 the way in 6 then my pc crashed... roms... lol)

This is actually the original difficulty. The original was toned down. A lot of the changes were basically to bring it more in line with the original Japanese version.

Graphics I feel could have been done better on PSP but overall I love the game.

Still love the story. This is one of my favorite Final Fantasies overall. Story begins and builds up in a much more believable way.

i didnt like this remake i felt that they changed too much from the original (mostly the boss fights because some of them where like impossible) its definatly one of the hardest remakes ive ever played.
the graphics were good but i liked the graphics from 3 better.

This is my first and one of my favorites of the FF series. I got this a month after it came out on SNES back in the day. I found this remake to be very well done. They definitely made the bosses more difficult on this remake.

FF4 is the second best FF game. It's sad that the FF3 remake sold better. Chances are the crappy FF3 remake soured a lot of people. I picked up FF4 remake on release day. I still love this game as much as I did when I first played it way back in 1993.

Those are pretty bad sales for NA. Get this game while it's hot. It might end up costing a lot if it doesn't have legs, as it'll be rare.

I assume it'll still crack a million worldwide though.

I see it as quite understandable that the US launch was less than successful. One, this is the second port of FF4 to a portable in the last two years. Two, it's too hard for most players and not at all friendly to those who have no prior FF4 experience. And three, it costs $40 in spite of being a remake of a game that gets remade almost bi-yearly now.
