    Although it's a bit on the pricey side for an Android game at $15.99, for fans of the JRPG genre, this classic 2D game will be worth the price of admission. Square Enix just ported the iOS version of their classic Final Fantasy 5 over to Android. You can now pick it up in the Google Play Store in all its 2D glory.

    That's not exactly accurate... In fact, the game should have a bit more "glory" this time around. According to the video trailer above, there have been quite a few refinements and improvements. Yes, it is still 2D, but they have supposedly optimized the UI to match a touch-screen interface, and the graphics are also enhanced/tweaked to match as well. That's not all. Several new features have been added including some new character jobs (classes). Other than that, the same combat and storyline are all present.

    Whether you just want to relive a little bit of your gaming past, or you want to check out how good some of the older classic games could be "back-in-the-day," the price seems worth it. What do you guys think?

    $16!? Wow, thats quite a bit for a port running most likely on an emulator. Not only that, but its a port from iOS so it was pretty much coded already. I'd buy it for $4.99, but not for $16.

    Yeah, $16 is too steep. Also, someone over on XDA made a comment about how having the Xposed Framework installed on your device breaks the game. Eh...I'll pass.
