Outstanding RPG classic has mild content but mature themes.

Violence: combat is extremely mild but frequent, enemies fade of screen when defeated. Some upsetting deaths (or supposed deaths that turn out to alive later) of main characters, however its mild and not bloody or gory in any way. Language: very infrequent usage of d*mn and h*ll, only in very tense situations. Sex: One of the most famous love stories ever in all of video game history, but now sex at all. Some female characters have mild cleavage (milder than that you'd see at the beach). In most towns there's a girl who will offer to "dance" for you (which is a girl in a bathing suit spinning in circles?!) but this is optional and not required. Alcohol: Occasional references to alcohol and drunkenness. Parents should know the biggest concern with this game is mature themes, including but not limited to war, betrayal, loss, despair, love, and above all a powerful message of forgiveness and redemption. The original version of this game was groundbreaking in the fact it offered both engaging game-play and a Hollywood quality story.

one of if not the greatest game of all time

Yeah so I know I'm only 14 but I love playing games from the early-mid 90's So Final Fantasy 4 was like nothing seen before it the characters felt life like and I actually cried at one point. So in the story you are Cecil a dark knight and leader of the red wings (think air force) you are ordered to retrieve a crystal from a small village at all cost upon returning to the kingdom you begin to question your kings actions and you are removed as head of the red wings for questioning said orders, then you and your adoptive brother Kain (who came to your defence) set off on the ultimate journey for redemption. As for the gamplay it was one of the first games to use the Active Time Battle system, which later became a staple of the jrpg genre so it isn't as smooth as later off games but is still pretty easy to use. But with most jrpgs of the time some parts are very difficult and most enemy encounters (save for boss battles) are completely random which can be very annoying but you'll get used to it quickly.

Technically I'm the first REAL reviewer.

Well no one was posting any real reviews so here it goes: It is very fun and other than some mildly suggestive clothing there is nothing to be concerned about.
