Ratings and Reviews
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.
I'm a fan of Final Fantasy and it had been so long since I played V that I didn't even remember it. I was a little skeptical about playing it on iOS and worried it wouldn't be the same.
At first, it takes a little getting used to the system and polished graphics but you get used to it.
This game is amazing! The story is awesome, the music is great. The auto save feature is wonderful. It did glitch out on me just a couple of times but my data was always safe. I really enjoyed this port. Nicely done, Square-Enix!!!
Game Excellent, Implementation Weak
The game is excellent, like the rest of the console Final Fantasy games.
However, this version has several annoyances that affect game play, such as prompting to sign into Game Center every time it starts or between app switches (I don't want to sign in, and it has no matchmaking anyway.) When I did sign in, I got bombarded with "achievements" which I could frankly have done without. It doesn't help with story immersion.
The positioning of the buttons in battle is also not very comfortable.
