of the Final Fantasy series of console RPG
s that was originally made for the Super Famicom
. Despite petitions
galore, this game
didn't make it out of Japan
until several years later as part of Final Fantasy Anthology
-- and by then, fans
had long since translated the game for play in emulator
s, and the official translation
was generally considered not to be as good. Go figure.
The plot of FF5 isn't as good as in many other FFs IMO, but the gameplay is quite enjoyable. As you progress through the game, you gain access to various classes or "jobs" you can have your characters switch between at will. However, the more time a character spends as a certain class, the more abilities from that class the character learns. It is possible for a character to use a learned ability from one class while being another; thus, you get to customize your party. Playing with the various combinations is the real fun of this particular Final Fantasy.
