What are the differences between Normal and Hard mode?

Monsters have higher HP?
You receive lesser EXP (& Gil)?
Your characters are slower/Enemies are faster?
Stats Growth is lowered?
Higher encounter rate (oh god, no)?

I wondered about that too... I don't think a higher encounter rate would make it harder as you can run and you would level up faster. I am thinking enemies use better tactics.

If practice makes perfect and nobody is perfect why practice?

I tested this out.

For some reason the exp needed for the first level up is the same.
Same stats apart from an extra 2 HP on hard lol.

Not sure if enemies hit harder or give less exp. the mist dragon still seemed tough on both so wonder if DS is the hard version. Bosses may have more Hp or spam moves more.

I need to do more testing or can email square-enix

yeah i had a translated FFIV from japan emulator that was harder and the dialog was better too. I remember that version being a big tougher. The FFIV advanced was pretty easy.
