Final Fantasy Tactics comes to the iPad, bringing time killing to a whole new level
Already boasting tons of time-killing games, the iPhone was recently grace with beloved original PlayStation games in Final Fantasy Tactics back last summer – after experiencing several delays in the process. At that time, it was mentioned that an iPad version of the game was in the works, but after even more wait, it’s finally available for download in the App Store.

Yes, you heard that right folks, the turn-based role playing game with its isometric environments, is finally giving hardcore iPad gamers something to be happy about. With this this version though, it features some minor tweaks in the graphics department to give it some love to the iPad’s generous display. In addition, it also boasts intuitive controls to make it easier to navigate, and reduced wait times to get you right into the thick of battle.

Already, there are planned software updates to further refine the experience, such as higher-resolution graphics for unit characters, battle scene fast-forward feature, and event scene skip/fast-forward feature. Honestly, this game will get you sucked in thanks to its memorable story line about The War of the Lions. Needless to say, you’ll probably want to clear your calendar to make time for this one, seeing that you can invest a good amount of time playing it – like weeks or months.

So how much will you need to fork over to relive this classic game? Well, it’s actually $17.99, which is undoubtedly up there in terms of pricing for games on the iPad, but nonetheless, it’s warranted considering the amount of gameplay you’ll get out of it.

same here but I wont pay 18$ for it. If its $10 like it is on Playstation Store then its a must! But the cheaper the better of course.

this is probably my fav game of all time....this needs to come to android the downside is that you dont have the co-op play like on the psp specific version and they just give you the "special items" which is kinda lame

Fantastic game! A legit version for Android would do well. Honestly, I think this would "fit" better on Android, just thinking about the demographic

No, you have the PSone version upscaled. They actually had the art for this redrawn so it could be displayed natively on the iPad's screen without upscaling or pixellation. That's why this came months after the iPhone version.
