Final Fantasy V

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Final Fantasy franchise is the most well known role playing game franchise in the United States of America. When the RPG Master heard about Final Fantasy V finally being released in the United States, this game was reserved under my mantle. Square Enix finally did something that role playing gamers have been petitioning for years now - release these old school treasures in America.

More Jobs Than You Can Handle

  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy V Advance is the middle game of the trifecta of Final Fantasy games released this fall. Of these titles, Final Fantasy V is the only game the North American audience has seen before, as it was part of Final Fantasy Anthology for the PlayStation. Because of these circumstances, a lot of RPGamers might decide to drop this title from their holiday wish list.

The Middle Final Fantasy

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: It may not be exactly in the middle, but Final Fantasy V plays the role of the middle child. As the only SNES Final Fantasy skipped for US release, it wasn't until the PlayStation compilation Final Fantasy Anthology that American gamers were first able to play this title. Once again with the latest release on the Game Boy Advance Final Fantasy V Advance takes the middle spot again in more ways than one.

Expert Review

RPGFan
27 March 2008
  • Excerpt: I remember a time when Final Fantasy V was an enigmatic and alluring title to the American audience; reason being, it hadn't been released. I followed the fan translation projects and the import Super Famicom version, and when the game finally did come to the US (as a part of "Final Fantasy Anthology" on PlayStation), I played the game a total of four times, and I even wrote my own walkthrough for it (something I never want to do again).

Final Fantasy V Advance

RPG LAND
15 December 2006
  • Excerpt: A little over a year ago, Square Enix announced that it was bringing the SNES Final Fantasy trilogy, that is, Final Fantasy IV, V, and VI , to Game Boy Advance, and soon released IV to the world. Now, it’s V’s turn. With most any updated port should come updated graphics, and V Advance delivers. The world map and dungeons look the same as ever, which isn’t bad, but combat visuals have been significantly enhanced.

Final Fantasy V Advance Review

GameSpot
15 November 2006
  • Excerpt: If you grew up playing 16-bit games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, then you're probably familiar with Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III. These were some of the defining role-playing games of the early 1990s and featured surprisingly deep storylines and interesting characters, as well as plenty of tough battles and great presentations.
  • Pros: Deep, open-ended gameplay that influenced many of the best Final Fantasies, lengthy, challenging quest has the signature epic feel of the series, this version features some exclusive, new content and an improved localization, high replay value
  • Cons: Abundance of random battles and the need to level up can feel a bit tedious, the dialogue tries too hard to be funny in a few spots
