Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster
Top Critic Average
While the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters aren't perfect, they're certainly the best and most convenient ways to play these classic games. The soundtracks are lovingly orchestrated and the pixel art is gorgeous, though the latter does lose some detail in the translation. Each game feels great to play, but I do wish extra content from previous releases or remakes had been included.
As much as I loved playing through the Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster, I can’t call it the definitive version. A definitive version would have the GBA bonus content, the PS1 cutscenes, the option to switch graphics and music, and multiple difficulties. But what we have is a beautiful version of a JRPG classic that has not been widely distributed outside of Japan. It’s an amazing game that holds up really well today. So, if anyone from Square-Enix is reading this review, please release the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters on console, with physical editions. I would buy the heck outta that.
Final Fantasy V truly is the definition of a fiesta—a feast, a celebration, and a whole lot of fun.
Final Fantasy V is one of the more overlooked titles in the franchise, but skipping this title would be a mistake.
Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster gives one of the franchises’ underdogs a substantial glow-up, in many ways realizing its potential in ways the original hardware or previous ports never could. Series fans should not miss the opportunity to experience it here, if they’ve never played it before.
The penultimate Pixel Remaster, a game a little ignored that in its day contributed much to what is now the Final Fantasy saga, but now completely renovated and with a spectacular soundtrack.

FFV isn’t always the first thing classic fans may think of when the subject of the best of the classics come up, but that isn’t to say that it shouldn’t be held in the same regard as the usual suspects of “best of” conversations. It expands on prior gameplay elements in a fantastic manner, isn’t afraid to buck some tropes, and is an unsurprisingly solid game nearly 30 years later.
Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster is a game that should not be missed by JRPG lovers with its customizable job system and successfully developed features.

Final Fantasy V is the last time Hironobu Sakaguchi directed a Final Fantasy title and for this very important historical reason, all gamers should try it at least once and this new pixel remaster is the definitive edition of the original vision that you can get on modern platforms.
