While the price is certainly high on this iOS game, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is a fun and faithful port of the original game as re-envisioned on portable systems. The storyline is just as engaging as ever, the gameplay is involved and addictive and the addition of cutscenes and other little surprises for original PlayStation version fans make it well worth checking out. It’s the first game to date on the iOS that makes the iPhone and iPod Touch feel like a mini gaming system instead of just a fun with some toys to pass the time.

Lions is not without its issues, but this is still one of the finest strategy-RPGs ever made. Lit majors and armchair generals are encouraged.

Finally the announcement of an actual release date arrived, as well as the news that the game would cost $16. I can't speak for my fellow fans, but that price point nearly destroyed my excitement about this game. It highlights a clear misunderstanding of the market on Square Enix's part. You just can't charge this kind of money for an iOS port of a PSOne game, especially one that's not graphically optimized for the iPad. What's worse, if I didn't already own this game on the PSP, I could buy it new right now for $10 at and have a better overall experience. I'm sad to say that despite my love for Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions and the positive score I am giving this port, I cannot recommend it for purchase at this price point and with these control issues. This game is amazing in many ways, so after a price drop and a patch or two, it will likely be worth buying... but it's not yet.

The first decision you have to make when considering Final Fantasy Tactics is, "Do I have the spare time for something like this?", if yes then consider yourself lucky to be able to experience such a deep and provoking tactical RPG, if not then you can rest knowing that you can still pick it up for your PS1 or PSP (should you have access to them).
