Critic Reviews for Final Fantasy III
If you're serious about Final Fantasy, though, you'll love the familiarity of the classic turn-based gameplay and seeing franchise regulars again (Cid <3). Unfortunately, in the hierarchy of Final Fantasy games, III doesn't have the same magic of the Chocobo riding adventures that followed it.
As stated throughout the review, the visuals are extraordinarily homely. The DS to PC path and price will prohibit most from ever trying the game. The game's beginning, while an improvement on the 1990 version, is like to doom it for many that do try it. But beyond that, it's easy to sink hour after hour into the game, embracing its retouched and demanding challenge while celebrating one of the peaks of the early series. And while I found the PC version ugly but addictive, I can't imagine trying to play such a serious game, hour after hour, on my phone, which means the PC version no one would have asked for serves an important function.
