Final Fantasy V Advance review

  • Brilliant and diverse job system
  • Very good translation
  • Updated graphics and new content
  • Some aspects feel dated
  • Some lines are too modern
  • Average story and characters

Longtime fans of Final Fantasy V will be pleased to know that the GBA translation of the game is exponentially better than the PlayStation version. The dialogue is much more interesting (though there are a few lines that are too modern and seem out of place), the graphics have been improved (particularly the backgrounds) and there are no technical issues to speak of. As an added bonus, Square Enix has thrown in a bonus dungeon, new jobs, a bestiary and a music player. This is truly the best and most complete version of the game ever.
