Dream come true for FF4 fans

Reviewed By: Ninjatemper on 15 Nov 2019

If you love FF4 but always felt that some elements in the original game were lacking or rushed, this hack is for you. All of the wasted potential that FF4 had is unlocked with this hack. It doesn’t stray far from the source material but instead increases the quality of the dialogue, battle system, and menu system.

New equipment and new spells / skills are plenty, but they don’t break the balance of the game which is quite a feat for something that was worked on by one person.

The main story can be beaten with about the same ease as the original game, but if you think yourself a pro, there are a ton of optional areas and secret bosses that will put your strength, strategic ability, and patience to the test.

On top of all this, the developer is very active in terms of working on this hack and is quick to respond to questions / suggestions from his player-base.

I can’t recommend this game highly enough and as a huge FF4 fan, I consider it the best ROM hack I’ve played to date.

Version 5.41 Recommended - Yes
