    Though probably not the definitive Final Fantasy VI experience, this iOS version succeeds in preserving the essence of the original beneath its cosmetic alterations.

    Final Fantasy VI has a few issues and questionable decisions, but that doesn't stop it from being a worthy port of one of the best games ever made.

    No matter what form it’s in, Final Fantasy VI is one of the best games in the history of the medium, with its fast-paced battles, humongous world to explore, fascinating characters and bold, original story.

    Despite the strangeness of some of its surface-level changes, Final Fantasy VI has aged surprisingly well, and holds up beautifully on iOS.

    One of the finest JRPGs comes to iOS and it's a sublime release, despite a few quibbles.

    Whether you love or hate the changes, RPG fans of the era have probably already picked this up. For the rest of you, I implore you that it’s well worth the entry fee.

    A not so great conversion of one of the best JRPG ever created. Still, a must have for almost every gamer.

    Final Fantasy VI on mobile is a lackluster port of a great game – but thankfully, not even a "blah" remake can bring down this classic.

    There are times when a 10 is not enough for a game, this one will be played and beloved for decades to come, it set the bar for what an rpgThere are times when a 10 is not enough for a game, this one will be played and beloved for decades to come, it set the bar for what an rpg has to be, and has never been surpassed since, this is the peak of RPG gaming and the best final fantasy ever made. Its been a downhill since then for squaresoft.

    The story is so detailed without getting boring (skyrim) so humanistic without being cheesy, sad without being depressive, and positive in the end as well.
    Characters are amazing, i actually dont like how developers abuse the cute anime look, but thanks to yoshikata amano's designs FF6 has some of the most charming guys around, you play with human beings this time, each one with their hopes and personal issues.

    THE MUSIC! Top contender for the best soundtrack ever! in 16bit glory! A mix of classical and progressive influences, best soundtrack by Nobuo Uematsu ever, and he has done lots of them!
    Visually is also intense considering how old the game is, love how square toned down the palette for this one, goes along perfect with the story they are telling, which is epic and poetic.

    Battles are not so hard but not so easy as well, they will give you the challenge you need to go along with the story without getting bored.

    Not only the best rpg ever, but also one of the best videogames ever, if you hate rpgs play it to see what is all about.

    Sadly this is a slap in the face of Squaresoft and the people that worked so hard on FFVI on the SNES, let me give every one the right advice,Sadly this is a slap in the face of Squaresoft and the people that worked so hard on FFVI on the SNES, let me give every one the right advice, if you want to play this game and not have it look like crap from new grounds go and get a PS vita or even a cheap DS and get the game that way, it will look better, or maybe just wait for a 3DS version that more then likely never come out.

    Final Fantasy VI has never gotten way better than this.

    It's also the best app I've ever owned on my Ipad, hands down to the universal app.
