IV also pioneered the Active Time Battle system, adding a sense of immediacy to each fight as monsters can take their turns while you decide your next move. The iOS version sports the 3D makeover and voice acting implemented in the DS version, and whether you play on your phone or iPad, the game looks great. Colorful and detailed characters, a sweeping soundtrack and a story that broke the mold for role-playing games make this one a must have for the iOS.

If Final Fantasy IV is notable for being the first to tell a nuanced story, Final Fantasy VI is the game that took all those lessons and built a masterpiece. Rising above the tropes that had come to dominate the genre, Final Fantasy VI is a sweeping epic of war, religion and destiny.

Ratings and Reviews

If any Final Fantasy is deserving of being considered literary in nature, VI is the strongest contender. In bringing this wonderful game to iOS, Square Enix attempted to update the graphics from the original SNES version, a controversial move that many would argue hinders the experience. But if you can stomach the changes, Final Fantasy VI is sure to enchant. That remake is now available on the iTunes store, and is worthy of recognition, even if the game represents a step down from the narrative aspirations of IV and VI.

As the game progresses, you are able to change the classes of your four heroes from series icons like white and red mages to warriors, thieves and much, much more. Though Tactics went through a troublesome release on iOS, the game is in better shape than ever and a must have for those looking to sink their teeth into an enticing adventure that can absorb hundreds of hours.

The touch controls can be finicky, and you would be best served by playing along with a guide due to some wrinkles in the gameplay that can lead to serious frustration. Regardless, Final Fantasy Tactics is a worthy investment for those wanting extra depth and strategy. Returning to the malleable job system of its predecessor, Final Fantasy V also forgoes the epic storylines of IV and VI and is ultimately more forgettable.


Square Enix did update the sprites to look a little more current that those originally found on the SNES, though. Dimensions is the first traditional Final Fantasy game developed entirely for iOS. Unfortunately, despite a makeover, Final Fantasy is just too old to really recommend for those looking for a portable RPG experience.

The combat is slow and the story is paper thin, acting only as a catalyst for battles instead of motivating players onwards. For diehard fans of the genre, Record Keeper sounds like the perfect love letter.
