We play many, many games, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses in order to present you with a critique of their merits. It's part of our whole thing. Today's game: Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, a Japanese RPG that hearkens back to the classics of the genre. Here's Gus Mastrapa's word on the game:
“'They don't make 'em like they used to.' It's a charge levied at home appliances, American muscle cars and, in nerdier circles, Japanese role-playing games. But in the case of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light Square Enix does, in fact, make a role-playing game just like they used to. Matrix, the team responsible for porting Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy IV and Dragon Quest V to the Nintendo DS learned from the best. Their Neo-classical take on the JRPG feels like its timeless source material tuned for the modern gamer."
