I'm a fan of Final Fantasy and it had been so long since I played V that I didn't even remember it. I was a little skeptical about playing it on iOS and worried it wouldn't be the same.
At first, it takes a little getting used to the system and polished graphics but you get used to it.
This game is amazing! The story is awesome, the music is great. The auto save feature is wonderful. It did glitch out on me just a couple of times but my data was always safe. I really enjoyed this port. Nicely done, Square-Enix!!!
Good Game Terrible controls
I’m one of the few people that love FFV more than FFVII. With that said I’ve played through FFV a few times already. The issue with this version is the weird controls. They’re very out of place, which makes it difficult to play and keep track of characters. And like wise difficult to view the game as you are playing it. The other issue is the composition of the character sprites. Poor Batz looks like he is always angry and pumping up his chest like a bad pop-eye episode or Astro boy. It is almost bird like and not very aesthetically please. Something I never expected from the elite artisans of Square Enix. Even I can do a better job of creating sprites on RPG maker. The things that need to be fixed to make this game more palatable and aesthetically please is a more logical approach towards a control update and better sprites. Otherwise the game is adventurous and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone getting into Final Fantasy.
worst port of a good game
While the core game itself is very excellent and even a bad port can't change that, the changes made to this version put it very low on the list of versions to try.
This doesn't just stop at the graphics, which vary erratically from okay upscales to total garbage that lose all of the charm of the originals, but also extends to gameplay "fixes" that actively remove or negate boss vulnerabilities that were left in deliberately. Between this and the awkwardness of controlling the game I really cannot recommend this version of FFV unless you have no other options. At least you can mod the PC release (which is otherwise identical) to be slightly less ugly.
The only benefit of this version is that two of the weaker classes are slightly buffed due to minor changes to how they work, but it's still not enough to make this a good choice.
