To battle, you can recruit and train an army of characters. Some of these characters are generic NPCs that you can assign Final Fantasy-branded classes like Dragoon and Ninja. Others are specialized, scripted allies with their own unique abilities (some of which are way too overpowered).


And the touch screen controls actually adapt well to Final Fantasy Tactics. Swiping through menus and maps feels natural, intuitive. This game, unlike many ports, is a great fit for iOS devices.

If you're into RPGs, strategy, or cool stories, Final Fantasy Tactics is a must-play. Is it worth the ridiculous asking price? I'll leave that up to you.
