Japan’s fourth Final Fantasy was our second FF in the US, and our mind’s were totally blown away because of the number switch. This wasn’t like the NES version we played as kids. This one had a more advanced storyline and a better battle system. Active-time battles? This game was the first we’d ever seen of those. This game was a masterpiece, through and through. It also has our favorite battle music in the entire series. But it wasn’t the greatest Final Fantasy that would grace the SNES.
