Did You Know?


In the original English translation for the Super NES version of Final Fantasy IV (released in the U.S. as Final Fantasy II), much of the dialogue was altered to tone down or eliminate cursing and sexual references. When the game was later re-released in the U.S. on the Sony Playstation, the dialogue was given a more accurate translation. (See "Alternate Versions".) However, one particular line from the SNES release, Tellah's insult, "You spoony bard!", was left in tact, as the line had become iconic over the years despite, or perhaps due to its origin as a uniquely bizarre attempt at censoring a Japanese line somewhat equivalent to 'you son of a bitch'.

Things to Come
14 February 2002 | by (North Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I should have known when I first saw this game in 8th Grade that Final Fantasy was going to be a great series for a long time. How could I have know though? This was Final Fantasy II (in Japan it was IV). I guess I figured you could only have one "final" fantasy, and the fact that there was a second was overachieving in the first place.

What game are we on now? Ten? They're all good and this was the first Final Fantasy to catch my attention. The story is as gripping as a video game plot needs to be. The characters are diverse and dynamic. Your party members grow and changes as the story progresses and the writers aren't afraid to kill off some really good ones. There are many interesting weapons, items, spells, caves and enemies. Best of all, the battles are fun and not an annoyance.

The game does show age but the graphics are really pretty and I remember they were exceptionally beautiful and he music was awesome at the time this came out for the Super Nintendo. You can find this one for PlayStation now AND it's coupled with what many call "The greatest Role Playing Game of all time" ChronoTrigger. It's a bargain.
