Solid story Effective battle system Extraordinary musical scoreAmazon.com You don't have to be a hard-core gamer to notice that innumerable--not to mention impressive--role-playing games (RPGs) have been released for the Sony PlayStation. Although the fourth installment in the Breath of Fire series is a fine RPG, it's doesn't quite hold a flame to the best of the aforementioned alternatives.Breath of Fire IV is a single-player game that continues the story with these "dragon people," who gave their lives to eradicate the evil goddess and restore peace in their world. This time around, battle has broken out between two powerful continents, and the fair Princess Elena has disappeared during a tour of the war-torn region. The princess's sister, Nina, who reigns o'er the Windia Kingdom, vows to retrieve her missing sibling. She meets Ryu along the way, who joins the epic quest.Breath of Fire IV's gameplay is refreshingly simple, with only a few minor additions to its predecessor's battle system. Most noticeably, a new combo system lets spells dish out more damage than when cast alone, by working in conjunction with other spells. As before, Ryu can transform into a dragon or hybrid half-human, half-dragon creature to gain special attack powers. The party will pick up other drifters throughout the game, some of whom have the power to transform. Each town opens up a new set of subquests and minigames (yup--there's another fishing game here, folks), both of which add longevity and replayability to Breath of Fire IV, although not everyone will appreciate the mandatory nature of these diversions. Like many Japanese-bred RPGs, the musical score and crisp sound effects are excellent, but there is very little voice talent in the game. In all, Breath of Fire IV is a solid, although not fantastic, RPG. --Todd MowattPros:Solid story Effective battle system Extraordinary musical score Cons:Average graphics Sometimes-awkward control and camera angles Product description Breath of Fire IV is a single-player game that continues the story with these "dragon people," who gave their lives to eradicate the evil goddess and restore peace in their world. This time around, battle has broken out between two powerful continents, and the fair Princess Elena has disappeared during a tour of the war-torn region. The princess's sister, Nina, who reigns o'er the Windia Kingdom, vows to retrieve her missing sibling. She meets Ryu along the way, who joins the epic quest Review Let's face it, the Breath of Fire series has always been a pale imitation of the RPG mainstays, firmly built on the unchallenging foundations of mediocrity and predictability - until now. Breath of Fire IV spins and builds on its traditions while telling a more compelling story than before, making it easily the best of the series. Nina's sister, the princess of Windia, has disappeared. On Nina's journey to find her sister, Nina discovers Ryu, a mysterious and silent boy with the power of the dragon. Together they set out on a globe-spanning quest to find the missing princess. Meanwhile, the vengeful Emperor Fou-lu is resurrected and seeks to reclaim the throne he lost 500 years prior. Nina and Ryu's quest ultimately crosses with Fou-lu's own, once again fulfilling the Legend of the Dragons. On their way, Nina and Ryu will collect the typically bizarre menagerie of characters - a fist-shooting robot, a well-muscled tiger-man, and an ever-protective samurai dog, for example. The game maintains some of the series' personal side quests and silly diversions, but Breath of Fire IV's largely political story takes place in a more fleshed-out and serious world than do previous offerings. New to the Breath of Fire traditions are an improved battle system and a new combo system. Like Square's Chrono Cross, Capcom has smudged the definition of battle turns, letting you command your characters to attack in any order they choose. While only three characters can be directly involved in the battle, additional party members can be switched
