Great review, Spaceworlder. We just had a whole discussion about RPGs and what makes them good in which I ultimately decided that, while I do like a good story, one of the main reasons I've come to judge RPGs mostly off story is because few now deliver the kind of gameplay fun that was to be had in the NES and SNES days.

The job system is a classic that was used to great effect in Tactics. I've never been able to get my hands on FF5, but now that a GBA version is cheap and I've read this review, I wouldn't mind doing so.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

I didn't come to fully appreciate FFV until I had quite a few more notches on my RPG helmet than when I was first introduced to it. It was forgettable at the time with a rather minimalist approach to plot. But when I came back to it (through the GBA version), I welcomed the quick progression from one area to another and the job system is indeed interesting. I got through the game and had to jump a fair few hoops to beat everything in my path, and still only scratched the surface in terms of how many different party configurations you can do it with.

Probably more likely now to replay V at some point than VI.
