I am so, so sorry. I feel like a jerk for never having replied to any of you. It's just that everyone was replying to Project II's thread in Personal Projects, and no one really took any heed to this topic, so I assumed this wouldn't get any replies... I digress and apologize.
Well, this looks tres interressent
I'ma give it a go. I'll let you know what I think...
Thanks for playing it, Spooniest! I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'm grateful for the review.
Do you think this would be superior to the DS or PSP versions? (So many versions...)
Superior to the PSP version of FFIV? Absolutely. Being based on the Super NES version, the Project has more consistent and original-looking graphics compared to The Complete Collection. Of course, TCC's main selling point was The Interlude and The After Years, which obviously the Project doesn't include, so your mileage may vary.
Superior to the DS and smartphone versions? Ehh... to be honest, I was hoping no one would ever ask this question! No, I firmly believe the Project is inferior in every way to Final Fantasy IV's portable remake. It doesn't have customization via augments, nor the nice graphics and voice acting, nor the beautifully-written script--though I tried to make it on par!--nor the rearranged music, nor any of the other new and reinvigorated content. The only thing Project II might
have over Final Fantasy IV for DS / smartphone is that it has handedness and window color customization, while FFIV's remake doesn't.
I do wholeheartedly recommend Project II if you are seeking to play the vanilla version of FFIV, but if you want the remade graphics, I assure you, I won't be offended if you take FFIV DS / smartphone.
