Just download it on both and see which you prefer. It is a universal build...

It's a great game. I have played it when I was a child on 8 bit, the story is still great after 20 years hehe, the revamp is impressive, I was more into the 8 bit graphic at first, having played about 10 hours or so and watch the cut secnce, it is a fantastic update.

Had a similar decision to make (ipad3 vs iPod touch 5th) and went with the iPad just for the bigger screen. I hope too they get some iCloud save sync in place.

The iPhone 5 screen is either slightly stretched or with FFIV borders so iPad might preserve the original aspect ratio better.

Sorry to break this to you bud, but the game was a SNES title - a 16bit machine The NES was 8bit and that had the first 3 FF titles, not FF4

All in all, I like the NDS/IOS version but I most definitely prefer the Complete Collection on PSP. Now *that* is a remake/restyle that I enjoyed.

Why is the graphics on the psp not 3d? I guess it was just a port + FMV and not a remake?

Not that there's anything wrong with the old graphics (I grew up a 16-bit boy, loving all the Genesis classics). Just curious.

Trying to shortchange ff4 by a whole 8 bits! ;P. I didn't play the psp remake but as a comparison, the psp remake of Lunar silver star is the ultimate way to update. Perfect graphical overhaul there, that's what the chibi ff games need.
