Pls consider add controller support.
Quite possibly the greatest game ever created, music, storyline, gameplay. The strategy involved was unlike any other game, and has yet to be matched even by modern games. With its legendary cult classic status, wed all love to see a modernized version for console and PC.
The first level is impossible. 4 on 2 with no heals and they have a healer... you can only control 1 guy, and the other one is a moron... tried it 5 times and got game over each time... there’s no way. No matter what, you just get surrounded and beaten to death. Heard it was a fantastic game... too bad it’s unplayable.
I originally played this game in 1997 on the PS1 when it was first released. Even though I was only 9 and couldn’t enjoy the story, I was enthralled with the gameplay and job system. Fast forward to 2007 when War of the Lions was released on PSP. I would finally understand the story and the more complex gameplay mechanics. This quickly became one of my favorite games of all time and my favorite entry of the FF series. The tone of this game is dark and political with very cool ideas to add a level of depth that would keep me coming back for more every other year or so. To say this is the best story ever told to me is an understatement. I purchased the iPad version yesterday (3/6/20), which is the fourth or fifth time I have bought this game in the last 23 years. I was disappointed to find that the game hasn’t been updated to accept controller support. While the game is still enjoyable, the clunky touch controls are tedious to a gamer that is used to whipping in and out of menus, and rolling through the combat controls effortlessly. So, I’m asking you Square-Enix, please as a very long Final Fantasy fan, can we get an update for controller support? I’m sure by the time it happens I’ll be long done with the game, but one can always hope. Had it had this feature the game would have been a solid 5 stars.
Ever since the new graphics update back in 2013, the game randomly crashes, sometimes even making me lose progress. Even when my iPad Air was brand new during that time, the issue persisted. The latest update significantly reduced the amount of crashing, but did not totally resolve the issue.
I purchased this for my iPad of which it says it is compatible for but the sound is not working for this games at all. Does anyone else have this problem? I am playing on 13’ iPad Pro. It’s making me rate this so I can send review/question. Outside of this I would give 4 stars but since it is asking for a rating, for now, I have to give what I gave as not having sound for a classic game like this would be unplayable.
So this game is on App Store twice. One version got updated to work on any apple device running the correct iOS and the other, this one, got kind of screwed. I don’t know why they would release an all device version and a same priced but tablet locked version other than to rob people. I ended up having to buy that other version to play on iPhone but also installed it on iPad to side by side and the phone version got updated for the X and so subsequently looks much better on iPad as well, compared to the iPad specific version.

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....
