Rated 5 / 5 stars

~Best flash rpg ever made~

Right! Epic Battle Fantasy 4, it definitely delivers on it's namesake. Where to start with this gigantic project? I can't even imagine the amount of work you must have put into this game mate and it really shows. I just recently finished the game on normal mode (took me roughly 9-10 hours) and I do intend to play it through on epic mode in a few weeks when I get time. So, let's break down a couple of key points of interest.

Your signature style returns in full form, The game looks wonderful it really does, The animations are fantastic, the colors are very vibrant and the graphics definitely help the atmosphere of this light-hearted rpg. What else is there to say? It's gorgeous, one of if not THE best looking flash rpg I've ever played. 10/10

HalcyonicFalconX has graced us with more delicious melodies and I'm very thankful for that. The music fits the mood of each individual area nicely. The sound effects during battle were also great, everything matched what I think it would sound like in my head. Gorgeous ost, I know you've sold the OST to your games separately in the past and I have to wonder if you will this time around as well? If so I'm very much thinking of picking it up. Whimsical and catchy the music is just absolutely magical. 10/10

Now I'll be honest, I don't play your games for story and I will shamelessly admit I skipped past a good chunk of dialogue, but of what I read some of it was very humorous and gave the characters some real flavor. The story is very silly with a Godcat civilization and whatnot, but it fits the tone of the game and a serious plot doesn't match your style anyway. All in all I don't feel like i'm entitled to review the story since it's not really a key aspect of what you were trying to achieve, to me it was just there and it did it's job just fine. The dialogue amongst the npcs were nicely done. NA/10

Here we go, the meat of the review and the reason why I play your games (well mostly). You have a very unique thing going here and a very well established series and I love that you bring back the same characters (sometimes adding new ones) and use similar enemies, etc you constantly build and improve your series and that's wonderful. The actual gameplay is standard rpg fair. Explore, fight enemies (no random enemies which i love) level up, upgrade your gear and learn skills, then test your knowledge and strategy on the bosses. Now again I played this on normal ( i will play it on epic eventually) so I'm speaking from that difficulty when I say the regular encounters were kinda copy paste. What I mean by that is I would use the same strategy over and over in an area (skills that hit all enemies are overpowered early to mid game imo). Obviously that's not your fault, I could play however I like, which is typically an optimal playstyle. The bosses were very nicely done, challenging without being overly so (on normal). The summons were a little inbalanced ( i honestly only used the scanbot, regen slime and the robot boss one) but I like that there were plenty of options. I love the skill choices, although some skills are blatantly better than others. All in all I love the equipment selection and how some pieces offer unique abilities (I find that the equips that offer random events to trigger in battle are best) and i found a particular use for the casual shirt/coat for matt (double hp/mp item effectiveness is insane with the fries man). The menu interface in battle and on the map does it's job excellently. Backtracking to previous areas once you've unlocked certain tools was a good way to give players additional secrets, loot and gear, nicely done. I enjoyed each of the different locales you included in the game (forest area, cave area, snowy area, factory, beach, desert and so on) I hope you continue to offer many different environments in future games. Finally, the end boss, you made me use all my tricks to best him- very very well done sir. (I spammed def/hp buffs/regen/limits)

~In Conclusion
Not many flash games get me to sit down and play them for 10 hours+ like yours do. You're obviously fantastic at your craft and I hope you keep designing for the epic battle fantasy series, I'm most certainly looking forward to the next adventure. As for criticisms, most of mine are concerning balancing. I'd love it if the skills were balanced better, as well as the pacing (some of the fights in the end game take a long time with 4+ waves). All in all keep doing what you're doing, and keep making bigger and better games as you have been doing. I could honestly see this on psn steam or xbla for 9.99 and I'd honestly pay that for it. I hope you continue to treat newgrounds as your home, I'm just saying.

~What I'd like to see in the next game
-Skills better balanced
-Even more unique locales to visit
-I hope HalcyonicFalconX provides the music again, it's lovely
-Sluggish battle pacing improved (not sure how to elaborate on this, the fights in the end game take a long time, with 4+ difficult waves. I'm not saying make it easier, I prefer a challenge, it just seemed to drag on as I copy pasted the same op skills)
-I'd like to see more towns ( i think there were 3 in this game?) maybe make some more cameos (like the creeper etc)
-I'm kinda torn on the upgrade system. I like that you find unique ingredients to upgrade your weapons and armor, but I can't help but wonder if I would prefer if you earned something like crafting points in battle to upgrade your stuff instead.
-An end game dungeon, very difficult, kinda like an extra challenge with an optional superboss. Ultimate gear, etc inside

Looking forward to playing the game again on epic difficulty! (I need to finished EBF3 still) >_>
Cheers for the amazing game matt.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I was hoping that in this game we can start over with all of the characters and keep the level but it gets harder, like that one time of the beta testing I liked it that way before.

number 3 was my favorite game on newgrounds. this game changed that in an instant. no series so far has had this many sequals and all having been as good or even better then the previous as this one has. i am truly a big fan of ebf. i bought the premium and everything. and i like how there was a little romance in this one. im hoping for matt/anna and lance/natalie. keep up the great work and thanks for this amazing sequal.
