What's New in Version 1.1.1
Fixed a bug
One that should have been console release
I've been playing about every final fantasy for some time now. It's been a long time when I said, "this is what a really good Final Fantasy feels like." It's not the retro style from final fantasy 1-6 that makes it good. That is just for nostalgia. What makes this game good is anything that should make a rpg good. Characters, settings, gameplay, pacing, etc. for me, dimensions does everything right. It's a mix of final fantasy 4&5, maybe 2 as well, or 6. Either way, this is a MUST HAVE for any fans of final fantasy. It is priced to that of a new snes game so it's completely reasonable.
You are buying a REAL final fantasy game. Seriously, this should have ended up as a final fantasy game in the collection. It's so amazing, they should have released it on PSN! If you love job system from final fantasy 5, this builds upon it in a few ways. There are also fusion abilities gained from having two certain job skills and using one skill to unlock a more powerful unique attack.
A must have final fantasy that is literally a final fantasy made with the best of the best. What more could you ask for? Price too high? Is there something wrong with you? This is not your usual iPhone game. This is 80+ hours, not a 5 minute game you play over and over.
Square enix, please release another final fantasy like this for the ios, or re-enhance it for psn release.
Great game, worth the price
This game is legit, though a few flaws keep it from being a classic in its own right.
My first outing playing a 16-bit era style game with updated graphics, and I must say they look great. The sprites outshine the backgrounds a bit, but the graphics are crisp, and what they need to be.
The music really shines in Dimensions. It feels like final fantasy and sets the tone much like Nobuo Uematsu would.
Story is ok, seems pretty juvenile compared to the holy grail of FFVI, I shouldn't go into every game expecting something up to that standard. I'm not that far along, but I don't see it becoming something it just doesn't appear to be thus far.
Interface is surprisingly good. I understand the directional controls have already been updated, being the only place I had any problems, they must have been pretty bad. I'm loving the battle and menu functionality.
Too many random battles! I am not a fan of taking three steps and needing to fight. I get into so many throw away fights I can forget which direction I'm walking in! The saving grace is the auto-battle feature, which I would gladly trade for fewer random battles, but it's great for dealing with the grind.
Job system! If you are into FFV or tactics, this game is for you! You know who you are you little menu micro-manager you… You're going to spend twenty hours looking at job combinations by the time you're done here, so it's probably worth the $20
A return to the classics
Small sprites that convey more emotion than detailed 3D rendered characters? check!
Background music that gets stuck in your head? check!
A storyline that involves gigantic crystals? check!
A job system that is fun but makes the nerd in you wish they tweaked it the way you'd prefer? check!
Dozens of hours worth of mindless level grinding that you still somehow find satisfying? check! (auto battle makes this far less tedious)
I'm more than 100 hours into the game (timer stops at 99:59 just like all the old school FF games). My incessant need to fully level up all the jobs as soon as I get job points is to blame…
The story falls short of classics like FF4 and FF6 and character development isn't as deep either. ON the bright side, unlike more recent FF games, the character development doesn't resemble bad emo poetry…
Auto-battle is a great inclusion. I can easily play a few battles during my 2 mile walk to and from work (health choice).
I haven't had this much fun with retro gaming since Megaman 9!
$30 is steep for an iPhone game but considering how much playtime I got out of this, it is well worth the cost. Highly recommended for folks that enjoyed the older FF games (FF6 and older) over the newer ones (FF7 to FF13-2). If you prefer the newer FF games, then avoid this game - odds are you won't like it.
