Like canned fruit, Final Fantasy III is still sweet and satisfying years after inception. It's obviously not as fresh as a newly ripened game, yet that doesn't stop this well-done remake from being a treat.
In spite of its age - more than two decades has past since the original release in Japan - Square Enix has remade this straightforward role-playing game into a charming adventure packed with enough variety and depth to keep you entertained.
While not everything about the game's design is ideal, the iPhone and iPod touch-specific features are nicely implemented.
A familiar tale
Good virtual controls and easy-going gameplay make Final Fantasy III a recommended role-playing adventure
