If you, like me, grew up in awe of Final Fantasy III (in fact VI) on the Super Nintendo you should not be disapointed with this GBA version. Playing this on my DS has brought me back to 1994, and I'm thrilled that my fond memories of this game are not just strong traces of nostaliga; this game holds up so well! While some may have issues with the new translation (don't worry, it's not THAT different) I have no complaints. There aren't any major technical flaws to be found either, slowdown isn't rampant, and I haven't encountered anything game-breaking. The best Final Fantasy just got better, and now you can take it with you anywhere! That would have blown my mind back in the day!
Sorry Cloud and Sephiroth, but I'll take Locke, Edgar and Kefka over the likes of you any day of the week!
