Ratings and Reviews
The best version of a tactical classic
This is one of my absolute favorite games. The iPad version of Final Fantasy Tactics is a further enhanced version of an updated edition of the seminal strategy classic. It sports sharper redrawn graphics, a fully rotatable camera and fixes the atrocious frame rate issue from the PSP versionIf you're looking for a strategy title with an epic, rich story, deep gameplay, and a tightly written script, you can do no better than this.
I gave this 3 stars because though I love this game, I am a bit disappointed I spent 15$ on this for my ipad, and unfortunately my ipad is now obselete and will not update to the newest OS. So I go to download this for my phone, and find out not only is this incompatible with my iphone, if I want to get it for my phone I have to spend 5 more dollars! Seriously??? I would appreciate an update to make this backwards compatible, I think it is crazy that I need to purchase this again after paying such a high price already.
Walkthrough nostalgia lane
After playing the original FFT over 20 years ago, it is so nice to go through the experience again on the iPad. There’s a level of depth in this game that was rare with console RPGs, while being an accessible game. Mature storylines, deep job structures, fun optimizations. I find it easy to pick up on this medium and find the port to have been adapted very well here. Thank you for helping relive these memories!
