Final Fantasy V is a great game, the graphics look clean and sharp. But I am disappointed with the music, it loops back to the beginning every time a random battle occurs. This did not happened in Final Fantasy Anthology for the PlayStation 1. The character sprites also could have been better.
Great characters, story, and art. But please add support for iPhone XS Max, the game does not go full screen properly and it just looks lazy on this device.

The game is excellent, like the rest of the console Final Fantasy games. However, this version has several annoyances that affect game play, such as prompting to sign into Game Center every time it starts or between app switches (I don't want to sign in, and it has no matchmaking anyway.) When I did sign in, I got bombarded with "achievements" which I could frankly have done without. It doesn't help with story immersion. The positioning of the buttons in battle is also not very comfortable.
I like FFV. It probably has the most play time of all the iOS ports. I don’t mind the controls. I love the job system. I have two complaints: The new character sprites look nothing like the Amano portraits. There are no shadows under the character sprites, so the characters look ungrounded. Even simple black ovals at the feet would do.
My plan was to play through ff1-9 having only ever played 7 when it first came out. Ff5 was the first of the series I couldn’t finish. The story was lame, the characters and bosses were even lamer. I loved 1 thru 4, but 5 played like a 13 year old fan made made it. Btw I put as much effort into this review as I feel ff5’s creators put into the story.
Unfortunately, the game is near-unplayable because it crashes every time the app is exited and reopened.
I’m one of the few people that love FFV more than FFVII. With that said I’ve played through FFV a few times already. The issue with this version is the weird controls. They’re very out of place, which makes it difficult to play and keep track of characters. And like wise difficult to view the game as you are playing it. The other issue is the composition of the character sprites. Poor Batz looks like he is always angry and pumping up his chest like a bad pop-eye episode or Astro boy. It is almost bird like and not very aesthetically please. Something I never expected from the elite artisans of Square Enix. Even I can do a better job of creating sprites on RPG maker. The things that need to be fixed to make this game more palatable and aesthetically please is a more logical approach towards a control update and better sprites. Otherwise the game is adventurous and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone getting into Final Fantasy.
I buy the game, thinking I spent $15 wisely-when it was possibly the dumbest decision I've done, it claims to let you 'customize' your avatar. No such thing. And don't even get me started on how confusing the beginning is! If your gonna make a game, at least have a tutorial. And not to mention how there's a bar in mid-battle, may I remind you, in every inch of your screen.
FFV is home to some of the most irritating mob mechanics and abilities of any FF game. Not difficult, just annoying. Having random encounter fights open with death and wipe out 3/4 of your party before you get a turn is asinine. I made it to the third world and got some ult weapons, but even they were a letdown, being barely better than what I had. Very easy game to play, but very hard to enjoy the experience. On to FF6.
