Great game, but suffers from major slowdowns.
on September 8, 2009
I've played the original on the original Playstation and it's a fantastic game. To replay it on the go is great, but every time you use a skill the game slows to a crawl. Which is just very disappointing. The extra CG sequences and voice work in the game however are great and add a lot to the game. The game is still great, but if you have access to either a Playstation 2 or Playstation 3 then I suggest just buying the original version if you can.
Then again, if some slow downs every time that you use a skill [ie: magic, items, etc] don't sound that bad then I highly recommend it. However, it is still very disappointed to see that Square Enix would release such a flawed game. The gameplay, aside from the slow downs, is fantastic. It's a turn based strategy game that uses the job system very well. The music is phenomenal. The graphics are what you would expect from a PSone game. The sprites hold up well.
