Released as the Final Fantasy series' first tactical RPG in 1997, Final Fantasy Tactics on Playstation went on to sell over 2.4 million copies worldwide. The game grew in popularity upon its re-release in 2007 as Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for the PSP with added features such as new movies, scenarios and Jobs. Now, in 2011 the game has finally arrived for the iPhone/iPod touch! You can enjoy the game whose story gave life to the world of Ivalice, and whose high strategy battles bring tactical games to a whole new level. ■Game features - Intuitive Touch Screen Controls The complex tactical game can be effortlessly and intuitively controlled by simply tapping units and menus. Gone is the old method of switching fixed map views - you can now rotate, move and change the size of maps as you please by sliding and pinching. - Improved Loading Times Loading times have been improved to get you into the action quicker than ever. What's more, you can even skip certain cut scenes.
I’ve never been a fan of touch controls, but the devs have made this game very accessible. There are some parts where the controls will be clunky and may waste a turn for you, and the “continue: Okay/cancel “ was super confusing at first so I dropped a star. Otherwise the game is fantastic and worth buying.
Porting this to touch screen has made the game incredibly clumsy to play, and has even made some ‘tactics’ impossible. Also, it’ll just crash out of the blue, which is suuuuuper frustrating when you’re in the middle of a long battle, or have just finished customizing some of your characters. I love this game, and it brings back so many good memories, but this is driving me nuts, and I’m regretting paying for it.
On the new iPad Air 3 the screen is stretched in heights so everything’s off....
One level crashes every time there is a group of chocobos. It’s frustrating because I would really like to catch the red chocobo there. Other than that the game is pretty great. Hard, but also easy sometimes...it’s all over the map. A lot of freedom to choose how you play. The controls are frustrating in a few places.
Please offer controller support.
iPad only???? I wasn't aware that my App Store purchase would be limited to my iPad. Absolute ripoff. I already bought this game on PlayStation a couple times, and my iPad.... There's no way I'm buying it a fourth time for my phone. Shame on you all.
This was one of my favorite games as a kid, but I never got to beat this or a few other games on PS1 because I lost my memory card and then basically gave up when the next gen of consoles came out. I recently bought this and FF9 and I’m so glad I did, they are even better as an adult and work great on the iPad.
There are two identical versions of this game on the App Store! The other “WotL” is identical to this, except built (poorly) for iPhone. Why on earth is it available separately? Who would they not just add support for iPhone to this version? This is misleading and deliberately confusing, and should be banned from the App Store, or at least refunded to those of us who were misled!
Touch controls are difficult and uncomfortable. This game needs mfi to be truly playable.
I love this game but it is crashing on my Ipad air 2, please help me.
