Final Fantasy 5 est un Final Fantasy vraiment atypique, qui est intéressant de par son système de job fabuleux et sa bande-son fantastique. Mais il possède quelques défauts et un scénario finalement assez moyen, ce qui pourrait en rebuter certains.

Final Fantasy V takes around 30-40 hours to finish the first time through, and it is well worth the investment. There are enough plot details and twists to keep avid roleplaying fans interested the entire time.

Final Fantasy V est un bon épisode à tout point de vue. Mais justement, il ne reste que bon. Malgré des qualités indéniables et quelques petites idées reprises par la suite, cet opus peine à proposer de réelles nouveautés. Même si l'on finit par s'attacher aux héros, à grandement apprécier le gameplay et à se laisser voguer pleinement dans cette belle aventure, on ne peut pas nier avec le recul que tout ceci reste du déjà-vu. Au final, Final Fantasy V est surtout perçu comme un épisode de transition entre deux opus majeurs de la saga, à savoir le quatrième et le sixième épisode.

Così come è stato per Final Fantasy IV possiamo dire la stessa cosa per il V ovvero grande gioco, imperdibile per i fan della saga e dei J-Rpg, anche se non ancora abbastanza meritevole dello status di capolavoro. Guarda caso il meglio di questi due titoli verrà miscelato e ampliato a dovere per ottenere IL capolavoro ovvero Final Fantasy VI ma questa è un’altra storia.

Insgesamt ist FF 5 sicher nicht die beste - dafür eine der innovativsten finalen Fantasien. Das Jobsystem ist ungeheuer motivierend und hält euch lange bei der Stange, dafür mangelt es den Protagonisten an Persönlichkeit und die Storyline präsentiert sich recht flach und wendungsarm. Für Fans der Serie wie gewohnt ein Muss, allen anderen denen Gameplay mehr wert ist als eine facettenreiche Geschichte riskieren mal einen Blick.

Final Fantasy V is about twenty-five hours in length and proves to be a moderate challenge. Seasoned RPG veterans won't have much trouble plowing though the game. The control is exactly like FFIV's; it is simple digital control. A run button would have helped, and thankfully it was implemented in the FFA version. Still, it's not in the original and can make for time-consuming travel in dungeons and such. Final Fantasy V is a very good RPG, it's just marred by the fact that it's not as good as the other Final Fantasies (not including the NES ones).
