Sometimes, Final Fantasy IV will pull a Smart RPG move and act as though it struggles with its own balancing when really it’s just turning certain battles and sequences into a puzzle. A test of your knowledge where your understanding of the mechanics allows you to work out how it wants you to do things. Other times, it really does simply fall apart and the game doesn’t know how to get you to the next melodramatic personal sacrifice without doing some chores. Does this mean I don’t understand Final Fantasy IV? Yes. Do I think it’s my own fault? No.
