Wow that was an awesome 4 hours :-(

I can't believe the first chapter only lasted 4 hours. I was seriously enjoying returning to one of my favourite FF woulds, and the game's action moved at such a fast pace, I was having a great time.

And then WHAM! No epic battle to finish the first chapter off, no real boss. It just stopped.... now I need to download the other chapters, sigh.

Mind you, I hugely recommend it. But any Final Fantasy "game" that can be completed in half a day is... a bit surprising.

Anyone else have this love/ disappointment relationship with it?

It's pretty good. I only have three chapters left (still need to get the last...)

Palom's story was my favorite.

I initially bought Rydia's chapter, completed it after the first "two" chapters and I haven't gotten around to buying the rest yet. o_o

Someday! :o

all chapters tend to just stop at the end without warning. they all lead into the finale chapter.

and you didn't complete it in half a day. only a small part of it. The After Years is supposed to be taken as a whole and the DLC chapters aren't throwaway little bonuses that you get in other WiiWare games. Sure it all adds up if you get them all but the cost is worth it.

I noticed there's not much discussion about TAY here. Any fans out there? I'm actually playing through the WiiWare version for the first time (I finished the PSP version) as a part of my own personal Final Fantasy 25th anniversary celebration! While I don't like it as much as the original, which is probably in my top 5 video games of all time, I do love the character stories. The mixture of old and new is interesting. There are scenarios that are almost identical to those in Final Fantasy IV, with little twists. Same applies to the music. While not as much as the original, I like the remixes of classic FF IV tunes (I think most are ported from FF IV DS). And I LOVE the tunes from the final dungeon and boss battles. "The Battle for Life" has become one of my favorite final boss scores! Funny, I complained through most of the game that there was hardly any original music (hi, New Super Mario Bros. 2 :P), then it was completely made up for by game's end! The one thing I don't like in the WiiWare version is many of the characters' avatars (though they correct this in the PSP version).

Finally, I have to say Leonora is cute as the proverbial button! I don't mean "hot girl" cute, but rather "teacup chihuahua" cute (she reminds me of a certain yellow cartoon equine, who is in my avatar :P ). :D She's adorable being her good natured, sweet self around sarcastic Palom (when she's learning fire/blizzard/thunder, I like to cast on Palom just for fun :P)! Of the new characters, I found her to be the most enjoyable and endearing! I just love the revelation of who she is connected to the original Final Fantasy IV! Real " :O " then " :D " moment! ;)

DAWWWWW! :)

This is the first I've heard of a 3DS FF IV Complete Collection. Have you heard there will be one, or think there will? I'd buy it again on 3DS! I keep hoping for V & VI, or After Years-like sequels on 3DS. I want to see a regular FF on 3DS soon (can't believe there's not one yet).

I heard it on the site wiiwarewave which got its facts from gamespot saying it'll come to Japanese eShop in Nov and the rest in 2013, but I'm surprised NL hasn't covered it yet http://www.wiiwarewave.com/t2740-final-fantasy-iv-complete-fo...

^Link please?
I haven't been able to find anything with Google. Maybe it's a rumor? That's probably why NL hasn't covered it.

Anyway, I actually have it on PSP. I'm still playing through it. It's pretty good, obviously not as good as the original game, but still pretty good nonetheless. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about purchasing all the episodes separately, but the game isn't exaclty fluid.

Yeah, no. There's nothing anywhere on GameSpot that says anything about this.

This is completely off-topic:
I followed that link and your avatar is awesome!

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

I've gotta get something off my chest. Man, Porom's challenge dungeon ticks me off! It's bad enough that you get battles (often back attacks) every 4 steps that you can't even survive one of unless at a high level. Then, you have to buy all those items to give to these guys who are too cheap to buy their own adventuring supplies. Worst of all, though, is the old man who wants you to cast healing spells on him. I've had to cast cura on him almost 20 times. I know the old coot doesn't have like 9999 hit points needing recovered. Then, I've probably cast esuna on him up to 15 times. You only need to cast esuna ONCE to heal even if a malboro has breathed its skanky breath on you!!! Wat tha faack, man?
