    Final Fantasy 5 is a game that enhances everything that’s come before in the series, and provides one of the most enthralling RPG experiences you’ll find.

    It's always hard to review these classic FF titles on iOS because they're always essentially ports of ports of the originals. Just as was the case with the previously released iOS ports, Final Fantasy V is a no-brainer if you're an RPG fan and have not had the pleasure of playing it.

    This is an overall well executed port of a great game, a game that would go on to inspire the famed job system in Final Fantasy Tactics. If you’re a fan of the original release or a fan of JRPGs in general, you will likely find something to enjoy in Final Fantasy V.

    Final Fantasy V might not represent the high point of the series, but Square Enix's sympathetic graphical overhaul and that ever-engrossing job system mean that it feels surprisingly fresh in 2013.

    This may be shocking to some readers, but I can say with complete confidence that I like Final Fantasy V more than FF 6,7, and all of the other final fantasy games. Now in no way am I putting theses games down. I enjoyed IV and absolutely loved VI but the job system in 5 is amazing. The gameplay is perfect and the story is underrated. I would recommend any RPG fan to play this, and I hope people do. Full Review »

    really getting tired of saying this, SE stop ruining Squaresoft games, anyone that played the famicom version will tell you this is a game not to support, and should get a real remake like FFIV did, sadly I can only wonder what is the next game from squaresoft SE will IOS ruin, get the GBA version or the PS Vita, far better value.

    A really amazing game that every Final Fantasy with a job system after it took from. It also has great characters, an amazing storyline, the gameplay is great, the music is amazing, the graphics are really colorful, and the world is open to explore for most of the game. But there are problems the controls in this version is really bad because the control can't be fixed, the random encounter rate is incredibly high, I barely ever knew where to go, and the characters seem to have barely any health for most of the game.
