Final Fantasy V is the fifth installment in Squaresoft
(now evil Square-Enix
) Final Fantasy
series. It was released on the Super Famicom
, but was not released in America originally, but was later fan-translated by a random pirate group. What they didn't know, their inaccurate translations would later become canon, even though a much better translation would be released for the GBA later.
Final Fantasy V utilizes Final Fantasy III
's job system, allowing maximum customization for the four (one is eventually replaced) characters, with jobs like Warrior, Thief, Black Mage, Geomancer and Monk.
The game was largely criticized for its graphics, which were not a large improvement and in essence a modified version of Final Fantasy IV
It also has a great villain called Exdeath.
