Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic game! Would love controller support!
I originally played this game in 1997 on the PS1 when it was first released. Even though I was only 9 and couldn’t enjoy the story, I was enthralled with the gameplay and job system. Fast forward to 2007 when War of the Lions was released on PSP. I would finally understand the story and the more complex gameplay mechanics. This quickly became one of my favorite games of all time and my favorite entry of the FF series. The tone of this game is dark and political with very cool ideas to add a level of depth that would keep me coming back for more every other year or so. To say this is the best story ever told to me is an understatement.
I purchased the iPad version yesterday (3/6/20), which is the fourth or fifth time I have bought this game in the last 23 years. I was disappointed to find that the game hasn’t been updated to accept controller support. While the game is still enjoyable, the clunky touch controls are tedious to a gamer that is used to whipping in and out of menus, and rolling through the combat controls effortlessly. So, I’m asking you Square-Enix, please as a very long Final Fantasy fan, can we get an update for controller support? I’m sure by the time it happens I’ll be long done with the game, but one can always hope. Had it had this feature the game would have been a solid 5 stars.
My favorite game of all time, but needs controller support
Still has the best music, best story, best leveling system of any Final Fantasy game. I love this game so much, and have played through it on every system that supports it. While the touch controls are pretty good, this game would be a perfect 10 if it had controller support.
Please SQUARE ENIX... PLEASE.
Update: it’s 2021 - how do we still not have something like controller support in this game, that was originally designed to be played WITH a controller?
Definitive version of a great game... with one major flaw.
FFT is one of my favorite games of all time and the translation, cutscenes, and other tweaks brought about in War of the Lions significantly improve the experience. Having played the game extensively on PSP, I appreciate the bug and slowdown fixes on iOS, as well as the ability to play a legal and official version of the game on a device with a larger screen and much-improved battery life. That being said, one major flaw really dampens the experience. The lack of controller support makes this game unnecessarily cumbersome. The extra taps to select and confirm selections in menus clearly designed with a traditional game controller in mind make this game feel a little bit slower, and a lot more clumsy. If controller support were added, or if the user interface were better optimized for touch screen controls, this would easily be the definitive version of the game. As it stands, the PSP version is is a more enjoyable way to experience this game, even given the slowdown and hardware limitations of that version.
