FF IV After Years

Graphics
We are speaking of a GameBoy Color, so Old School graphics. But it is nice, and the mood for example can be seen / understood.
Grade: 7.5 / 10
Graphisme

Music
Woohoo, the Final Fantasy musics (I don’t think I will ever be bored…), I like them a lot. There are “usual” themes, and I think a few specific ones for this game.
Grade: 8.5 / 10

Gameplay
It is a Final Fantasy, except it does not pause totally during the choices in menus, so you have to be careful. The different characters can be played by different players, or all set on player 1. The originality of this Final Fantasy is in the special two characters attacks and in the moon phases that influence the efficiency of each type of action (white magic, black magic, physical attacks).
Grade: 8.5 / 10
Combat

Length / Sidequests
For what I played, it seems reasonably long to me, though I did not spot sidequests. There is a possibility to buy (with wii points) additional story arcs to lengthen the game even more.
Grade: 8 / 10

Story / characters
I like a lot the idea of having a game for what goes on “after” the first game, when a sequel of a game I liked tells about the next generation, I find it great. So here, you have the children AND the parents (Cecil, …), it is even better!
Grade: 9 / 10

In the end…

Final grade: 8.2 / 10
