Good, but it can crash.

I've played the FF tactics advance and FFTA2, so, I was interested in playing this one, the very first of the tactics series, as I discovered, it's a lot more complicated, I was pleased to find this to be a rich, even a bit mature game.

First off, for the negatives, moving the view around can be annoying at first, but it's something to adjust to, sometimes, after a motion cutscene, the dialogue will annoyingly replay, and lastly, though it happened once, this game can crash after cutscene when you have the option to recruit new people. This is rare, though, as it only happened once. Lastly, this game has a habit of crashing if there is a thunderstorm in a map, extremely annoying, however, hitting resume when starting the game up will at least let you continue where you left off in the battle.

Now, for the positives, there is lots to do, recruiting monsters via the Orator's Entice skill, or his Tame ability is fun, more so when your new monsters start giving you eggs, which can lead to more playable monsters, the music is very good, the story is also strong IMO, the difficultly of this game is also pleasant, as it can be very hard.

All in all, this game is still amazing, despite the fact that my iPod 4g can barely handle this game sometimes. It's a solid game for those that enjoy learning a somewhat complex game, complete with a good variety of jobs, get it if you like, just be aware of the setbacks I mentioned.

Not an app, but a classic video game

The original FFT was my favorite game which I played on PS1 and PS3. I don't have a PSP so I am very excited to play the War of the Lions version.
Crashes: Game has never froze. However, it does crash once in a while. The auto save lets you pick up where you left off before the crash.
Lag: Minor instant of lag during some graphics heavy spells and abilities just like in the PSP version, but still playable.
Graphics: They added new HD graphics. Retnia display looks great! Still doesn't fill up entire iPhone 5 screen but hopefully it will in a future update.
Controls: Smooth camera control and accurate touch controls. You can use the two buttons to either slide the entire map around or rotate the map around a single point.
Verdict: A must have for FFT fans. Anyone who likes games and RPGS will love this game. For a full videogame that you can easily play over 100 + hours, it is worth your $16.
Will keep you updated, but so far so good. If you've been waiting for Square to fix this game, now is the time.

Controls just don't work on an iPhone

I was very excited for this title to come out, however now I am very disappointed and feel like I got scammed. I've been a huge fame of Square Enix since I got hooked by Final Fantasy VII on the original play station way back in the day. So when this game came out it was a no brainer despite the typically high Square Enix price. I bought it the day it came out and tried to play it the first thing you notice on an iPhone is how small the text and buttons are and how hard it is to accurately do anything. Then you get into the first battle and cannot get your character where you need him or facing the right direction. These are key things that must work for you to play the game, I've never been able to get past that first battle as my patience for the terrible controls just isn't there. So I removed it from my phone conceding I wasted a good chunk of money. Well I recently got an iPad so I decided to give it another try on the bigger screen however since it is not universal the iPad has to upscale it and it looks terrible and again basically unplayable. I refuse to spend additional money on the iPad version. Square give me my money back and maybe I'll be a believer again, until then go @&$# yourself.
