    A wonderful throwback to when RPG's were simple but difficult. Highly reccomended to any fans of the SNES and nes RPG's

    The music in this game is the best i have heard in years! its a retro 8 bit theme that actually melds and changes on the fly (dynamically). The visuals are some of the best to date on this ancient ha...

    Combination of old-school Dragon-Warrior and Final Fantasy. Don't import if you're not happy reading Japanese.

    Hikari no 4 Senshi, despite its name "Final Fantast Gaiden", the game is a more similar to the early Dragon Warrior series. The game gives you a lot of freedom right off the start with very little ...

    4 Heroes of Light is an imperfect game, but if you love old school JRPGs, you will likely enjoy it.

    Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light is a spinoff from the popular and long running Final Fantasy games. It advertises that it presents old school RPG gameplay in a storybook type world. And, despite th...

    The 4 Heroes of Light is yet another addition to the Final Fantasy series. Does it live up to the name?

    It's some classic RPG adventuring, get to it if you have a DS

    The journey is easy to figure out. It's about four heroes saving the world. Ok now that we are past the basics, the hidden gems of the game are the many layers to it. The targetting system is pro...

    A tired formula with the same old boring mechanics I lost interest in twenty years ago.

    Rated on October 08, 2010 by ricothehat

    Easily the most disappointing RPG I have ever played on the DS, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light aims to bring back old-school, hardcore role-playing for fans of the classics, but ends up keeping ...

    Overall it's a decent game, but the little things are what bring it down.

    I was excited for this game. The graphics and visual aesthetic looked really awesome, the gameplay looked promising and innovative, and it had a job system! But when I got it and played it for a littl...

    A wonderful ds exclusive final fantasy experience that no true fan of the series should go without playing.

    Rated on October 21, 2010 by cliffangel

    Final Fantasy: The Four Heroes of Light is one of those games that once played you will learn to love. From the start of this game, you have the ability to name all your characters, which is a plus f...

    It's not Final Fantasy and this game tarnishes all the the series stands for

    Rated on November 01, 2010 by Flaon

    I will begin to say I don't hate this game, It does have Final Fantasy's insane difficulty level, like the first boss being difficult to beat, this game has nothing in common with other Final Fantasy ...

    A charming RPG, with some added difficulty.

    Rated on November 04, 2010 by ItsNotKefka

    I picked this game up a week or two after it came out. I just finished it and I have a few words to say about it. Being busy with school, I don't have much time to sink into games like Fallout: New Ve...
