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.
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.
Summary: Years ago I had played this game for the PS1 version when it came with FFVI. It was my first look at job selection for your characters (aside from the first game). It had a learning curve for me that took me a while to get used to. Sadly, at the time I really didn't like this part of the game. There were a lot of things that I hated about this game. But then I got it for my GBA collection. Finally I had a purpose for doing the jobs.
Pros: Engaging story, Loads of content, Epic boss fights, Just plain fun
Summary: I like this game very much, I orginally had it for PS one, but now on gameboy makes it even better. Good story line, solid boss fights. Overall a good game, definatly a descent amount of play time too. Including side quests you will have your hands full for some time.
Summary: Final Fantasy V Advance is the remake of Final Fantasy V. Which America has only seen this game once before, on Final Fantasy Anthology. Final Fantasy Anthology was a PS1 game that came with two discs, Final Fantasy V and VI. And as of now, they've remade all Final Fantasy games 1-5 on a handheld system. Final Fantasy V Advance has made many improvements over the original. One, is they added character portraits next to dialogue text. Another is updated music.
Summary: I really enjoyed the SNES version of Final Fantasy V because it had the most humour of any Final Fantasy game I had played and a lot of mini plot twists along the way that kept me hooked. I particularly like the imagination in it - things like a boat that can move without wind because it's powered by a dragon!
