Final Fantasy IV The Complete Collection - Sony PSP

This game drives me crazy because of all of its different releases, and I’ve played almost all of them. I had the "original" on the SNES, and was amazed. It was definitely great for its time and set a positive trend (mostly) for Final Fantasy up until 7. For those of us old enough to remember, we later received the revelation that a majority of the content of this game was cut, censored, or otherwise totally altered from its origin. Smash cut maybe a decade or so later and you get FF Anthonology on the Playstation conspicuously missing this game. Then Chrono Trigger and this game were released together and the missing features were returned, but the same wall-bangingly stupid dialogue remained and haunts this game to this day. Smash cut again some years later and we get this game on the Gameboy Advance, old features restored, new ones added, and dialogue tweaked. A solid improvement except for Video & Audio. Smash cut again and the game gets completely re-worked for the DS, but the art style just can’t be taken seriously. Super deformed, and terrible terrible artwork, but another re-worked dialogue and with voice overs and a new decant ability system!So where does this one fall? Well I’d say the Video and Audio is the best of all, but we’re missing the dialogue and voice overs + cut-scenes from the DS version, but the graphics are superior. The features of the Advance version are in place of the Decant ability. The advance gave all of the characters a kind of bonus epilogue chapter, but the decant ability gave them more versatility and usefulness. This game includes the "interlude" chapter as well as "The After Years" and the graphics are good throughout, but the art style of "The After Years" goes back to awful, and the level grinding and play through is painful. So it’s not the edition I would want, but it’s the best overall. Check it out!

Final Fantasy IV The Complete Collection – Sony PSP Review

Already beat the harder Final Fantasy IV on DS, but this is so different that is worth a playthrough of the main game again, AND has the Interlude AND After Years included!!! 3 games in one, with bestiary and plenty of cool extras. Controls are tight and intuitive and original sprites look flawless on the PSP screen, this little disc and manual are well worth the price they ask! Must have for any FF fan, new or old! -Read Reviews-

I added this to my collection and did a quick test to make sure the disc works. Everything seems ok. Delivery was pretty quick, too. However, I have not yet really played the game because I have some others I want to finish first. I’ll get to it eventually. FFIV is the only Final Fantasy game that I could not beat on its original system. V and VI were fun, but my copy of IV on the old console always froze when I got about halfway through the game so I never got to finish it. This re-release on the PSP will let me finish this game at last! Plus apparently it includes some extra cinematic cut-scenes as well as some bonus content to expand on the original story a bit. And with my AV plug to output PSP games to my HD TV the action is even better on the bigger screen!! PSP AV Cable I will try to remember to update this after I’ve actually played the game and seen the bonus content, but I warn you it will probably be a while because my PSP and other video games are all in storage while I am between jobs.
