After seeing many videos and reviews of this game before it came out my opinion didn't change on weather i was going to buy it or not but im so glad i did. The game is so much better than i had expected and here is what makes it so good.
Voice Acting - Yes in the fmv's it has voice acting from the characters themselves, i mean this has never happened on a hand held games console before, not on a Final Fantasy game anyway.
It's 3D - Well not completely, theres no switching camera angle so you can't see behind a house but the graphics are notched up to the same as the Final Fantasy III remake which is good.
Battle Animations - When a character casts a spell in battle the screen pans in on them and if it's a summon even that is shown in 3D. It doesn't show a black background like it did on FFIII either. This is something which made me happy the most while playing it even though it's something so small it makes a big diference.
Music - The music is the same but it sounds better because it is a remake after all.
There a few added features put into this game for example Rydia has a pet like summon called Wyte which you can customize his appearance and raise his stats by doing tests and such and summon him in battle. When exploring dugeons the map is drawn out automatically on the bottom screen as you walk to it, also showing a percentage of that area explored, this helps a lot as i always used to get lost when playing this from Anthology (PSX) also if you get 100% when exploring a dungeon you will get items and bonuses. In all everything looks nice, the character's, the enemies, cut seens, battle animations and interface. Making this the best Final Fantasy game on a handheld console. So don't hesitate because this game will not dissapoint.
