What’s even more ridiculous is the $40 price tag.

I like how he tosses this into the review as if it actually matters to him.

I might go back to the review later, but I honestly stopped at this..

"From the first cutscene, I could tell the graphics were not nearly what was promised. The opening cutscene is the main character, Cecil, and his army flying on an airship to the castle in the center of the first town. It took me a full minute to realize that the giant spiky black object sticking through the airship’s deck was supposed to be Cecil, and several minutes more to determine that the glowing white spot on it was actually his face."

Jesus christ.

Hearing some very mixed things on this game. I guess I'll have to see it for myself before I do anything.

There are multiple factual errors here that really discredit this review. I think the most damning one is the complaint about saving; specifically claiming that only quicksaves can be used before the first boss, when in fact you can save at any time on the world map. Failure to understand such a fundamental feature just screams "I did not play this game before reviewing it."

EDIT: This review is listed as "Import," though it is clearly for the English release.

Guuuuys, don't chide him so much.

For all we know, he COULD be a one-eyed colour-blind diabetic with the eyelid of his good eye forced in a permanent squint. COULD be.

The other major problem I had was that Square-Enix had stuck with the original translation of the game, containing such oft-parodied lines as “You spoony bard!!”. The horrid “family-friendly” translation was the one major problem the original FF4 had, and I was thoroughly surprised to see that someone at Square-Enix thought this bad of a translation would be kosher over ten years later. There are still misspellings and grammatical errors left over from the first translation, so it’s clear that at no point was the script ever actually altered between the original SNES release and this re-release

Also, considering they only increased the dialogue by about 30% overall from any of the four previous versions, you clearly must have been nearly dozing off when playing through this game.

This makes for a game that is almost stupidly hard.

You sound like one of those guys who abused MissingNO glitch in Pokemon and then would scream "TOO EASY! TOO EASY!" Just because you can't grind it out with attacks and whatever magic suits your whims and still win doesn't mean it's stupidly hard.

Can a review be deleted for stupidity?

I was forced to replay the entire first part of the game after dying to a random encounter between the starting castle and the first town, simply because there was no way to save the game between those two points.

Be sure to check out the latest in Zigfried Foodstuffs (TM)! The special of the month for the remainder of July and for all of August is enchiladas. Stuffed with generous amounts of seasoned, pulled chicken breast and smothered with indulgent portions of zesty sauce hot sauce, fresh lettuce, decadent melted cheese, and tangy sour cream, they make the perfect dinner meal for the perfect dinner price! Try them for yourself today!

Another factual error is that the script was entirely re-done, and 'spoony bard' crap was kept for nostalgia reasons. Did he even play through the game, I wonder?
