Sublime tactical RPG, and a perfect fit for iOS

Orang-utanKungFu

Final Fantasy Tactics turned 20 in the summer of 2017, but age has not dimmed its splendour. It helps that this is a port of the PSP update, complete with new hidden characters, new job classes and some nifty animated cut scenes. These are all welcome but are really just icing on the cake. The basic game is as compelling today as it ever was, with its labyrinthine job system and abilities continually opening up new layers like an onion (knight) as you navigate a surprisingly complex (and melodramatic) tale of Machiavellian politics between church, army and state. It's rather po-faced, but certainly far above average for the genre.

For the uninitiated, you control a hero, Ramza, and a party of others in a series of tactical, turn-based battles. You have melee attacks, magic, healing and various special abilities that are unlocked within each job class. As you progress, you gain points to spend on more abilities and you can switch between jobs after every battle to go learn completely different skills. It's one of the best implementations of a job system and skill tree in the genre, and can become a real rabbit hole for obsessives. For novices, I can only emphasise that it's worth the effort to understand what's going on - and you'll soon found out why as the difficulty spikes quite early on. There's no shame in consulting a guide or two!

Finally, this game has masses of reviews, but many of them date from when the game released on iOS - a buggier time with older, slower phones (we're practically talking the iPhone 4 here). Today, it's a flawless port, with very well translated touch controls. You might need to rotate and move the map a bit to select the right square occasionally, but the menus are easily navigable by rolling your finger up and down and tapping the screen to select. It runs brilliantly on my ageing iPhone 6, doesn't eat the battery, and hasn't crashed in about 40hrs of play. Also, while the story scenes can run on a bit, battles themselves are fairly snappy affairs and ideal for both quick bursts or long, long sessions. As an added point, the music is up with Square Enix's best and the graphics are, at least, charmingly late Nineties!

Seriously, I think this is one of the best games on the App Store.

Gameplay mechanics good on iPhone 4

Go-GoGoGo

There are already a couple of bad reviews coming up saying the game is slow and "unplayable", but that depends what device they are using. I've got an iPhone 4 and although there is the occasional slow down during battle, the gameplay is absolutely fine. Because it's a port the graphics are occasionally slightly fuzzy, but you'd expect that. The controls get around being precise with fat fingers by allowing a scrolling motion on the screen to move around menus, which works really well. If you've been waiting for this game and have the iPhone 4, get it, there are no serious problems so far (I can't vouch for other devices)

Tips for Ch3

Jimmy Beard

One of my all-time favorites. Extremely deep gameplay if you can be bothered to put in the time. Controls work surprisingly well - crashes occasionally, but autosaves after every turn so not an issue.

TIP: there is a very tough fight at the end of Ch3 which could make you give up on the game if you don't know how to complete. 1-on-1 with Wiegraf. You need to teach Ramza auto-potion as a counter move (Chemist job set) and sell all potions apart form X-potions. When the battle starts, use 'cheer' to increase bravery, hence increasing counter % to 100%. After that it should be a walk in the park.
(otherwise it's nearly impossible!)
