Final Fantasy V

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Final Fantasy V is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo.

The game was released in the States as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology, complete with Ted Woolsey’s script that was done before the SNES Square translation was scrapped.

The game is pretty straightforward Final Fantasy, except for the Job System that the characters use. You have a large selection of jobs, and there’s no penalty in switching from one job to another (unlike FFIII). Battles earn you points that go towards leveling up these jobs, which give you extra abilities.

Translation Description:

RPGe’s FFV translation is probably the most famous fan translation ever. It was the first RPG to ever be completely translated, and a lot of ROM hackers and translators today cite this project as the reason they got into the hobby. Given the project’s troubled history, it’s really nice to see such an overwhelmingly positive result.

In contrast to J2e’s FFIV translation, which some say took too many script liberties, FFV’s script is occasionally criticized for its blandness. There’s just no pleasing people, is there? At least Faris doesn’t say “Arr!” constantly.
