Now with thier next title in Final Fantasy V, will Square Enix again capture the magic that made their old games so much fun? The answer is absolutely yes!
This game is a great example of why the job class system, that Final Fantasy has become well known for, is so much fun to interact with. You start out with a team of four who have to save four special elemental crystals from being destroyed. Every time a crystal does happen to be destroyed the crystals will lend the would be heroes it's powers letting them change thier classes into more powerful fighters, magic users and specialist in the hopes of saving various worlds from a great evil in the name of Exdeath.
The story can be a bit on the weakside. Besides the point of fighting evil just because they are good guys and that's what good guys do there is not much more to the story then your typical Final Fantasy situation. The real draw of the game is the idea of building your dream team of characters in the classes you want to build them into.Read more ›
Final Fantasy V begins with a character named Bartz witnessing a meteorite come hurdling to the ground. When he goes to investigate he meets up with Lenna. Lenna is searching for her father who has gone off to the wind shrine to check on the wind crystal. Lately, the wind has been weak, and it can only be because something is wrong with the wind crystal. In addition to meeting Lenna, Bartz also meets Galuf, a man who has lost his memory in light of the meteorite crashing. All he can remember is his name, and that he too must also go to the wind shrine. Eventually Bartz decides to travel with them, and so your adventure begins.
In truth, Final Fantasy V doesn't have a good storyline... at least when compared to Final Fantasy IV and all the Final Fantasy games that appeared after the fifth installment. It's pretty basic and generic. This is obvious by how fast you'll meet your main party, and how much more emphasis is put on gameplay. These characters are not well developed nor is the story full of unbelievable plot twists. Except Final Fantasy V was not meant to be about storyline. It's all about the gameplay, and that's where Final Fantasy V excels the most.
As with Final Fantasy IV before it, Final Fantasy V uses the ATB battle system. All your characters stand on one side of the screen while all the enemies stand on the other.Read more ›
The class system is left more or less unscathed but for the addition of a few new ones which are dumb at best. Canoner was not somethign any of us were waiting for ff to add. Necromancer has never been the MO of the FFs and the bizarre weather oracley person just kills your party most of the time. Nice guys! It makes you wonder why they didnt throw in some FF staples that were missing. It might have been nice to have a paladin or something remotely FF thrown in there, but whatever, thats small potatoes...Read more ›
