i think it's better if it was on the DS...they could have made it at least 3d if they planned it for the wii..true, substance is better than looks, but they could have at least tried to make it look better...

Why not release this on all platforms for download like Capcom did with Megaman 9? I really don't get SE anymore, it's like they lost all their business sense.

Lap it up, lemmings. Square Enix thrives on your willingness to accept the status quo.

fester420 is correct. Some of the best games of all time don't have incredible graphics. Look at Final Fantasy 7, the character models are almost painful, but that game STILL stands out years later.

you youngsters need to learn that graphics don't make a game good, the gameplay does. it's a sequel to a game that came out almost 15 years ago, how can you not be excited about that?

This looks more like a DS game...either way, I'll probably get it, FFIV is one of my all time favorites.

I don't really care about the graphics to be honest.Hardcore FF fans wouldn't really mind the graphics,all they want is the storyline.FF is just like a playable virtual storybook.For example,Final Fantasy V and VI and I and II,their graphics are simply horrible compared to games now-a-days but when I played it I got hooked onto it.Games now a days usually have all the intense graphic,lightning effect and stuff but somehow,they grow boring more quickly than retro games.

Can people actually play that game nowadays? I mean, I'm glad I've got a PS3 and FF13 is coming soon (not so soon, lol). I couldn't possibly play a game with those graphics anymore... I mean, it may have a great plot and everything, but come on!!! It's horrible... lol. I hope FF4 fans are happy, at least.

dissapointing, they keep thinking we (wii useres) can swallow a game with those graphics ith the lame excuse of the nostalgia and that kinda stuff. If I wanted those games i´d keep playing on my NES instead of a whole new generation console

To be honest, 2w-seph, I'm kinda digging the 2D graphics. They look really well done.

FF IV is easily one of the greatest games ever made.

Wow.... does graphics are... retro, um ok. You know what would be cool? if in each of the diferent 9 parts they improve the visuals of each part. Making the first one look like snes, then between snes and psx, then n64... and like that until the last part it looks like a incredible Wii game with the best graphics... You are with me? anyways I better stop dreaming. And keep this idea for my self if I ever become a game designer.

To bad the game didn't go to a useful system like the DS. What a waste of sequel to my favorite FF. Horrible decision SE, but I should be used to that by now.

Milk. So according to someone below fans asked and square did it? In that case where is the Final Fantasy VII remake for the Ps3, or hell any console for that matter? I've already had it with FFIV. My belly is full on Nintendo/Square Ninty division's milk. I just need to find some cookies or something. Oh wait, those cookies are on real current-gen consoles.

@Ovirew You know, i had few good things to say about the additions they made in the DS version either. But I'm happy to see that young gamers can get a chance to experience a classic like FFIV rather than playing some pos shovleware the way most games are made these days.

I respect that they didn't try to overhaul the graphics. In my mind it shows that they understand what a special game the original is to the fans, and thus want to keep it in the same spirit as the original.

First off the game was made for Japanese cell phones thats why theres nine episodes.And second the gameplay footage is from the new game it uses the same basic engine as the original.This is fan treatment.People asked and square did.So quit complaining.Dont download if you dont like it.

So...is this game going to be 3D? All those gameplay vids were from the original game. I just hope this doesn't ruin the glory of the original (which is one of my favorite RPGs of all time).

Can't wait for this; FFIV was by far my favourite retro game, and to date, is still my favourite. @Ovirew As far as the DS version, why is the classic better? Sure, the voice acting wasn't the greatest, but the characters and story were the same. I don't see why either of them should be compared to begin with.

My only complaint is that it is being released in 9 parts. Why not just release one full game?

@ YoePoeJoe, The DS version sucks. The classic version is much better.

@ InfinityTomorro, Personally, FFIV is one of my favorite FF games as far as story and characters go, and is probably my favorite 'retro' FF title. I care about it, and I am sure a lot of other people do as well.

Why would they make a sequel for a FF noone cared about? At least do one for 1, 2, or 6

The graphics are really retro. Why couldn't they just base the graphics off the DS version?
