We’ve been thoroughly impressed with each re-release of Square Enix’s classic RPG series on to the Android operating system, but does FF VI match the quality of the others?

Storywise it’s hard to really criticise the game, it’s massive. Towns are varied enough to make them worth exploring and there’s so many engaging characters to choose from, you’ll always have something to do here.

Where FF VI is at it’s finest is with the dungeon crawling aspects that you’ll encounter time and time again. You never quite know just how sprawling specific dungeons will be, so it takes a lot of time to prepare your team for combat while also making sure you’re suitably packed full of potions and other life saving medicines.

There’s not a worse feeling than reaching the final boss of a dungeon only to be wiped out and start from the cavern’s entrance. FF VI is a superb RPG, but it’s one that brings nothing substantially new to the table.

It looks dated and although the gameplay is solid, it really is a game only the die-hard FF fans should check out.
