Summary: At it's time, this was a major step in the right direction with final fantasy, and it still is. There are many things in this game that you can't do in the newer (or older) titles. The story was well put together and exploring is fun. If you want an RPG game in which you can freely use your imagination to advance, then do it.
Great product and where better to buy than eBay?!!!

Summary: Not only was my experience purchasing this game stellar! (A one day shipping turn around, and during the holiday season?!!!) But my son absolutely LOVES this game!! The Game Boy Advance is his favorite system, and the final fantasy series is also a big favorite. He is rather keen on the genre and the style of play.
Summary: I should first start by saying this has never been one of my favorite FF titles, but don't let that sway you! This snes classic gets the royal treatment in it's gba conversion. It's a solid rpg, great score, ATB battle system with bonus content to boot, and it's portable. There isn't a reason not to enjoy this game. Thanks Square-Enix! You have outdone yourself again.
Summary: A hidden gem among the greats. Most gamers do not know about the fifth installment, however, do not be fooled. This game is awesome. The job system is second to none. While the story may not be the best in the series, this is not what the fifth one is about. If you are a Final Fantasy fan, pick this one up now.
Summary: One of the lesser heard of final fantasy games. One of a kind job systems, it reminds me of final fantasy tactics job system, able to cross class between all jobs. There are about 20 jobs and many hours of game play. ( I'm unsure how long it is I've been playing for about 10 and still don't have all the jobs unlocked) It's an under rated game but its worth every penny if you ever have the chance to buy this game or even borrow it, its a tittle to pick up.
Summary: I think this might be one of the most under-rated Final Fantasy games out there. I mean, being sandwiched between IV and VI, you have some biiiiiiig shoes to fill. The story, in my opinion, is one of my favorite among the Final Fantasies i have played. And the job system is great too. The job system is very similar to that of the earlier Final Fantasies, and also is very similar to FF: 4 heroes of Light.
Excerpt: Final Fantasy V gets short shrift in discussions revolving around the franchise, possibly because the title was initially overlooked (BAD Square!) for translation. This had nothing to do with the game’s quality and everything to do with a tiny localization staff in the SNES era, sadly condemning the game to relative obscurity (as a Final Fantasy title) until a PS1 reissue.
