The GBA isn't the most capable machine on the planet, especially in 2006. Still, FFIV
has been subtly improved from its original. It now fully taxes GBA's meager abilities. The developers, however, did introduce timing bugs into the Active Time Battle system that allow some characters to jump the queue, stalling others' attacks. This hurts, even if it doesn't make the game any harder or duller. Small mistakes can't wreck such a consistently pleasurable experience as FFIV
. With additional content that drastically increases the role of its large and likable cast, this is one RPG you'll have slotted into your GBA or DS for a long time coming.
