STORY Seventeen years have passed since the war's end, and the son born to King Cecil and Queen Rosa of Baron has grown into a young man. Prince Ceodore has enlisted in the airship fleet known as the Red Wings, eager to meet the expectations demanded of his blood and station. Yet once more another moon has appeared in the sky, and with it vast hordes of monsters intent on destruction. The brief peace enjoyed by the Blue Planet now stands threatened under the shadow of impending catastrophe.
Not only should have have included all the bonus dungeons and bosses from previous versions of this title, they should also include the prequel episode FF4 Interlude. Not sure why anyone would want to buy a mobile game that has LESS content than much older versions. This game is incomplete and much too short.
Just finished the after years and while the beginning of the game can be meh, getting to the crystals makes it more interesting. A lot of random encounters and bosses that can 1-2 hit and can kill you. RIP. Large character selection and bands. Would recommend if you’re final fantasy fan, if not I’d start with final fantasy IV
Every other remade Final Fantasy game on the iOS store has controller support. This is the only exception. Even the game before this (Final Fantasy IV) had the majority of the controller support, the analog stick support was the only thing missing, same for FF III. I extremely dislike using touchscreen controls and expected Bluetooth controller support for this game just as it is supported on your other Final Fantasy games for iOS. I will update my review and add 5 stars if the controller support is added.
This game is amazing. The story is deep, the characters are unique(except for maybe Ceodore. Literally just a cardboard cutout of Cecil. Still love him!), and the new moon phases are great! I actually have one problem though, it’s not taking any stars, but it is bugging me, why is there no voice acting? FF4 hat it, and it made me feel like the game was reality, gave it more flavor. Plus I’ve always wanted to know what Ceodore sounds like...
Love the whole series. FF4 just happens to be my most cherished of them all so this was a no brainer for me. Loved it. Bands are great! The bonus dungeons at the end of each chapter are beyond awesome...wait, maybe that’s the Wii version but anyhow I played them both! Loved how you got to revisit stuff EXCEPT for the Waterway between Damcyan Castle and Kaipo. Having to go through there sooooooooooo many times became a real chore. Other than that, the story needed alittle more depth but great if your a fan like me!
Played "Yang's Tale" but didn't finish; the save point I used in the game went away after hours of playing when I tried to open the game again. It reappeared after I reloaded it for some reason. Not a deal breaker, but disconcerting. There is much to love about this game, and it verges on interactive fiction, which emphasizes the storyline over the martial prowess of characters. Storyline is clever, kind of reminds me of Saga Frontier (in that you get to play several different characters, but with better graphics). Square Enix unfortunately has recently been following the lead of more notorious companies by suffocating the genre with IAPs. I hope they change this, because to many fans of this genre, that IS a deal-breaker.
Update this, PLEASE!! Come on! I paid money for this game! I can't STAND this "free" crap that's coming out nowadays! I want quality games that you only have to pay for once! It's been 2 years, UPDATE the App!!!!!
I first played Final Fantasy 4 on my Nintendo Ds and loved it. I'm a dedicated PS4 player and play a lot of FF XV,FF VI. One day I was scrolling through the AppStore looking for something to play in my car. I then stumbled upon FF 4: The After Years, I bought it instantly. I don't play mobile games, but this game was the exception. I sold my Ds many years ago and I now feel my phone is the replacement for it. The graphics are also really good and crisp,so that's great. (playing games on my phone is a guilty pleasure)
I like the game. It is very interesting. My only problem is what looks like a bug involving Calca, Brina, and Luca where Dance and most Jives attacks keep landing on Luca, even though Dance is suppose to work on all party members and Jive is supposed to only target enemies. Can you figure out what the problem is?
This is an awesome sequel! Someone spent a lot of time and made the locations on the game very similar to what they were in the first part of the game. I love knowing what happened to the characters in the previous story. It is one of the best written stories of the series.
