Final Fantasy V Critic Reviews

Final Fantasy V is still an excellent RPG for anyone who enjoys a good, well thought out story and a classic adventure. It truly embodies superior RPG craftsmanship and rivals many modern RPG's in content and enjoyability. Most importantly? It's fun.

An embarrassing & lazy mobile to PC port

It all comes down to this: don't deny yourself Final Fantasy V.

In regard to story and gameplay, Final Fantasy V is as great as it has ever been, but dealing with a supremely suboptimal port in order to enjoy the game requires extreme dedication to the series or a lack of a smartphone or tablet. Players who can't even borrow a mobile device for long enough to play Final Fantasy V are certainly encouraged to give this port a look, because it's not that Final Fantasy V is a bad game. This is a bad version of the game. Severe flaws resulting from a gross lack of optimisation severely hinder the experience; almost nothing was modified for the PC port. Although the mobile version is marginally more expensive, players are advised to play Final Fantasy V on the system for which it was optimised, rather than the system for which it was bastardised.
