Final Fantasy V has kind of the same tone as Digimon to me, where it's completely batshit silly and stupid but I still get attached somehow.

Phew, I'm just making it through some of these boss battles by the skin of my teeth! Were they always this tough? I remembered a select few giving me problems, but mama mia! Just about to head to

. This will be my third time making it this far. I've never actually made it to the final boss before, but I have made it all the way to the

waaaaay back in the day. Probably a good ten years ago. Might be time to finally finish off these Final Fantasy games now that the series seems to be making a comeback.

Dr Eggnog I never used sword magic and I've beaten the game twice.

Demi Axersia Sword Magic is OP is any game it appears in. I mean, we're talking about a combination of magical power + exploiting elemental weaknesses + physical damage. Its strength lies in being able to set it as a subclass to a strong physical class. It's especially lethal in Bravely Default where you can combine it with Ranger, and do crazy amounts of damage by exploiting multiple weaknesses at once. Again, if I cared more about doing the most damage possible rather than keeping my party members distinct from one another, I'd give everyone Sword Magic as subclass.

This has the exact same number of points on the favorite games list as Crisis Core. I'm not sure if I expected it to be higher or lower. On the one hand it's part of the main series, and on the other hand I used to hear a lot of shit talk about V. People seemed to soften on it a lot after the GBA version, though I prefer the ps1 version.

Silent Gamer They are both pretty comparable in terms of quality. I love them both. I'd prob have to place Crisis Core above FFV though. That game is just sooo good

Funny. In the original SNES version, there's a battle transition where the camera hits the ground or something, and to me it looks pretty terrible. In the ps1 version, they do a swirl transition like in Final Fantasy VII, and the funny part is that I like the way it looks better than in VII. In the GBA version they revert back to the old style, and they probably will again for the Steam version.

Djinn Fighter Since the Steam version will be a port of the iOS version, it will look like that : https://youtu.be/DG_lWxeAm_0?t=26s

Dr Eggnog Oh, they made the transistion look less harsh and way better actually.

Steam version coming soon! I might pre-order it. I really hate that the hideous concept art is used in the dialogue boxes, but the changes to the in-game graphics look like they're going to be really nice.

Dr Eggnog Meh. If that were the worst thing about the gaming market, it wouldn't be so bad.

Final Fantasy V is very underrated. The graphics are colorful and charming, and the music has some great rhythms and sounds. The story is silly and gave me some nostalgia for Saturday morning cartoons. The Job system is the highlight of the game, letting you give the main characters a variety of abilities, and I like that you keep the same characters throughout (from a gameplay standpoint). The gameplay is challenging and quickly paced but complex. I think the ps1 version has better writing and graphics.

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

I can understand those who bash this game based on the story, after all it's been a main component in what defines an FF game for some time. But I also think games should be judged by what they set out to do and how successful they are at doing it. FF5 focuses on fleshing out and modernizing the gameplay of the JRPG formula and overall it does a good job (heh) at it. Dungeons are a big step up from FF4, featuring puzzles, non-random encounters, timed escape sequences and the option to sidetrack and find new summons to convert to your cause. The interface is improved in a number of ways, most importantly adding a time gauge to battles, and control over character development is increased.

In short, a defining entry in the series.

Score: 7.5 (Good!)

Awesome JRPG from that golden era of the genre. Maybe even a bit underrated if a game from such a big series can be. While the story isn't as dead serious as IV's, the job system was quite well done for its time, giving you lots of gameplay options. And to be honest I like the humorous touches the game has, while still being quite an epic journey across multiple worlds. Ah the 90s!

Score: 9.5 (Fantastic!)
