Good remake of an instant classic.
Final Fantasy III has a similar narrative to Final Fantasy I. This is due to an apparent re-draft of the game, which I am lead to believe was originally intended to be the sixth game in the Final Fantasy series (due to an untimely release in the US). All very confusing indeed; this being said may explain it's slight mirror image to the first Final Fantasy...Four Warriors of the Light, Four Crystals, Four Elements etc.
Stunning for the DS...more cut scenes should have been included though.
All the compositions have been converted into modern day pieces for the DS, which are more than satisfactory considering the various ensembles.
The price has recently dropped. However, the game was fairly expensive when first released. Nevertheless, it's a worthy price to pay.
Overall, this is a wholly solid game. I don't think that Square Enix could have improved it any further. Something I found quite refreshing was the decision that this company made to not include any mini games or side quests which many other spin-off's tend to do. They have strictly kept the main components of a solid RPG and introduced the idea of gamer discretion through character class superbly. The final parts of the game do get rather complicated and difficult; which will genuinely test the avid RPG fan. Despite this, I would suggest FFIII is engaging and simple enough for anyone to pick up and play.
