FF4: Dealing With the Dark Dragon

by Craig Olsen

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Last Tuesday, I bought Final Fantasy IV for the DS, and I must say it's quite fun. Now, when reading this post, you have to keep in mind a few things. First, I played FF4 back in the day it was called Final Fantasy II on the Super Nintendo. Second, I could get to the final dungeon of this game when I was in the 1st grade and FF2/FF4 helped me learn how to read. Third, I have played through this game multiple times ever since it first came out. Fourth, FF4 is probably my favorite video game ever made.

Now that I've given a background of my history with this game, it's time for the main point of my post.


Oh my god, I can't use the Tornado spell to kill the Dark Dragon guarding the Earth Crystal! The game is actually making me... FIGHT HIM! I've used that Tornado (back in the day, Tornado was called Weak) trick ever since my first encounter with the Dark Dragon. I have NO IDEA how to fight him normally! The DS version is actually expecting me to... go into battle... without cheap tricks!

Don't get me wrong, this game is insanely fun. But... *shakes fist* Damn you and your strategy altering ways Square-Enix!

Rydia the Summoner

This image has nothing to do with my post about the Dark Dragon. I just think Rydia is kick-ass.
