Ratings and Reviews
My favorite iOS FF
Final Fantasy V is my favorite game in the series on iOS for primarily two reasons. The first is that it feels like a polished release. By that, I mean that none of the changes made to convert to touch screen in a different aspect ratio seem lazy. That, and it’s fully supported with cloud saves and the like.
The second reason it’s my favorite is because there’s no counterintuitive process for being the best you can be. If you level all your jobs, you won’t be penalised for doing so with lacklustre stats because you gained levels with this job or that. Too many other games in the series require some variation of a low level challenge till endgame to reach the same ideal outcome. That’s not really my thing.
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.
