Ratings and Reviews
Thank you for updating to 64bit iOS 11 compatibility!!
Thank you Square Enix for the timely update. I have raised my rating from 1-4 stars!! Quick save was awesome, if that can be fixed too, all the way up to 5 stars~ I was really worried that you'd have a more "business minded" approach to fixing this game if at all. Kudos for you for making the customer/gamer first. :)
My previous review is below:
This game is great and I love coming back to it time and time again... but if it is not updated to 64bit, in the next iOS update whether it's iOS 10.3.2 or 11 we will not be able to continue playing. Please don't release a whole new version and make us pay for it again too. This game was expensive as it is. Release an update, fix some bugs and my rating will go back up to 5 stars. Square-Enix, you're now able to respond. It would be great to hear if you'll be continuing to support this amazing game. Please don't leave your die hard fans in the dust.
This was my favorite on PS1
I waited and waited for it to come down in price because it was my favorite ps game and I lost the disc. I agree with people who complain that it’s not optimized for the iPhone. I don’t have an iPad and it is a bit small for me to read on my phone. That seems like an easy fix via settings. But you cannot change the font size. I’m also not a huge fan of the touch controls as they are so small I often hit the wrong thing and that can be frustrating. But my biggest issue is that the enemies’ battle speed is way too fast for me to follow. There is no way to slow it down. I would upgrade my rating if we could adjust that in the settings because I like to see what’s happening on the battlefield. If you liked the original, you’ll like this port, and these little annoyances will probably not bother you. However, I can’t give this beloved game more than 3 stars due to the difficulty in playing due to the things I mentioned. On sale, it’s ok—I wouldn’t pay $14 for it.
(UPDATED) SQUARE, UPDATE(D) PRONTO
I’m updating my review back to 5 stars. I’m very happy Square released an update day 1 with the iOS 11 launch. To help preserve this all-time classic on mobile for a new generation. This game is a treasure, and I’m truly happy to have it remain on my iPhone and iPad for the foreseeable future.
If you buy this game, just be warned that in its current state, it will cease to run on the next release of iOS, iOS 11 due roughly in September 2017. So that only gives this amazing classic 3 months of life left.
Given the prices Square charges for their games on iOS, I thought this was a fair warning to give to users. This is also a call for Square to get their act together and show these amazing games some love. Apples tools makes it pretty darn simple to modernize a game to run 64-bit, and Square frankly has no excuse to not update games they charge $20 or more for. At least in my view as an outside observer.
I really hate to lose access to this amazing game on my iPhone, but this change has been a long time coming and warranted. If a developer cannot make a simple compatibility update in over 3 years, then what business do they have accepting money from customers anymore?
