Keeps crashing

I wish the game would stop crashing on me

Good game, too bad it doesn’t work

Really great game, played on PS1, PS Vita, PC Emulators, etc. It USED to work on iPhone, but they have not updated the game for compatibility with the latest iOS in a very long time. As it sits, you cannot even finish the first battle. Provided it lets you get that far. You may just crash at the title screen. Please Square, fix this issue.

My favorite game

I have a total of 3 copies of this game now

Crash city

Love this game but it crashes constantly

Crashes and closes on IPhone X

Unplayable on iPhone X on 11.3. Closes out after a few minutes once you get past intro part of the game.

Faulty Fantasy Tactics

Stellar game At only $15? Decision made easily New Game *Clicks on* Excited! Sinking feeling 2 hrs in as game freezes S#*&

Freezes - Can’t even get past the tutorial

I have an iPhone 8 plus running iOS 11.03. Can’t even play it because it freezes. What’s up with that? I know this game has been in the app store for a few years, but I put off buying it because it was $14. I finally pulled the trigger on it today to find out that I can’t even play it. How does a game by a reputable company such as SquareEnix which has been an app for years not have enough support to run without issue? Wow.


I’d be a great game, but I have to constantly open it and close it to work. And I have a new iPhonex

Love it when it works

This is a fantastic port of the game. Only problem is it crashes non-stop. There are times when I can play it for a few hours with no problem. There are other times that I can’t play it for more than two minutes before it freezes up. Hard to suggest this game based off of the crashes.

Game runs FAR too fast...

Was enjoying this, but on the very first battle the game is running way too fast to even keep track of what’s going on. Animations are 2-3 times their vanilla speed, spells that would take 5 seconds to complete in the OG are now finished in the blink of an eye, and it’s impossible to watch and enjoy the unfolding of strategy or implementation of tactics when a turn for both sides runs so rapidly. I loved watching the beautifully drawn spells animate, now that’s far less enjoyable and hence so is the game. I’m running on iPhone 6. When this is fixed I’ll up my rating but am not holding my breath considering Square’s treatment of their iOS attempts.

iOS 11

Doesn’t seem to work with the new software or hardware. Not sure which it is but doesn’t work on my iPhone X

Files sharing

Great game but could you enable file sharing

Where is the save??

Fun game, good gameplay, but how come I can only save once every so often through a random prompt? I’ll have to go multiple levels to save? I don’t have that kind of time throughout my day, it’s a little ridiculous, definitely a waste of 14 dollars

So long, $14

Crashed at first battle after intro. Now just black-screens and crashes when opened, even after iPhone reboot, closing the app down, etc. Description says “works on this iPhone”. Noticed another review saying iPhone 8 has issues with it as well as iOS 11. If you’re not going to update your $14 app, at least update the description to show that it doesn’t work on certain devices/iOS versions. Want a refund - gg App Store. Fix this and I’ll be happy to update my review. But not if it takes 3.5 years like the last update apparently did.

Thank You!

For both porting this classic piece of gaming history and continuing to support it years later!


Keeps ending the game in the middle of a battle

Text is blurry

I am still waiting on a fix text is blurry. Why do a lazy job and are you not seeing it?

Please update

Edit: Thank you for the update!!! Love the game and would give it a 5 star but without an update for IOS 11 when it comes out later this month, the game may not even be playable.

Tactics on your iPhone

Hey guys, some of you seem to be confused. This is Final Fantasy Tactics on your iPhone. The controls are easy, you just need to get used to them. DUH. Get good. Nah I know you’re good. I was just messing

So far so good

Been debating whether or not to I should get this game for a while. Reading through the reviews people claimed that it would crash and freeze. I’ve played about 5 hours and haven’t experienced any freezing or crashes yet on my iPhone 7. Hopefully it stays this way. It’s an alright port. The game feels a little sped up to me, but it’s not too bad...

Freezing all the time!!!!

Was so pumped to play this game. Every time I enter a battle the whole locks up. Can’t do anything but restart the app and then try again. I have gotten through 3 battles. Don’t waste your money until this is resolved. IPhone 8 Plus

My saved progression

You should've put up a warning because my iPhone auto updates my apps! Now I can't access my saved files! All that hard work gone !!! You need to make it so I can access my files again. I cannot start over!


Great game I have been playing for a while.

No iphone x support

Extremely disappointed. Expected more from square enix. Seems like none of their apps are optimized for iphone x


Keeps crashing on my new iPhone plus 8. Switched phones from a iPhone 6 Plus where the game worked perfectly. Fix for 5 stars. Please and thank you.

Review so far

So far I’m giving this a always locks up at the first battle. As soon as it starts it freezes...don’t know if this is an iphoneX issue or what but very disappointed :/. Will update this if it’s ever fixed.

Phenomenal throwback! (When it works)

$14 for an app that works sometimes?! I bought the original brand new for $10. This is just as good as the original on PS1, everything I had hoped for... except the PS1 version never froze. Additionally, the app can’t even force close properly. Square Enix has made us wait this long for an homage, yet still doesn’t execute properly. It’s a shameful abuse of their customers’ nostalgia and money. However, if they fix these extremely irritating glitches for their extremely expensive app, this review will get the full 5-star rating.

Crash constantly iPhone X

Unplayable on iPhone X

Not compatible with iPhone X

How do I get a refund?



Freezes constantly

The app freezes constantly. I’m only about an hour in and I’ve had it freeze multiple times. Just now it froze when I was trying to load my saved game. It never unfreezes and with a game like Ff Tactics having it freeze deep into a long battle is so, so frustrating I have an iPhone 8 with the latest firmware.

Utterly Disappointed

The tap function would be great for someone that wanted it, at least have an option for those wanting to relive the game with some directional buttons and pad buttons. Was so eager to play and then after the first battle I was so disappointed that I don't ever want to buy another square Enix title again. I'm not looking forward to the remake of final fantasy VII anymore. Y'all will find a way to crush my spirit like so many times before. Ever since FFXI everything has gone down hill. Although final fantasy dissidia on the PSP was great, FFT advance on the GB advance was great FF 6-9 was awesome, 10 I got to the Outlands, heard how drawn out it was after that and just played blitzball. Perhaps a release of blitzball could cheer me up. I doubt it though, probably will find a way to messing that up too. I'd prefer having my money back than living with the disappointment of knowing I bought this crap "better" version. Ugh, what went wrong?

Good game, but some issues

Sound stopped working, not optimized for iPhonex. Really great game otherwise

Golem broken

Golem summon does nothing instead of its intended effect. 5* when Golem is fixed, will let update as other problems come up.

Please fix quick save!

Best tactics game ever made. The replay value is immense and the extra, side quest content will take you a hundred hours to complete. From normal play through to challenge runs, this has been my favorite game ported to the iOS.

Greatest Game of all time

But needs more updates ;) iPhone X support too, please!

Please update

Please update this classic for iPhone X devices.

iPhone X optimization

While the update to 64-bit for iOS 11 compatibility is appreciated, the game looks tiny, and honestly, awful on iPhone X. A full screen update would be appreciated, even if it is an in-app purchase.

Favorite final fantasy

This is my favorite final fantasy game! Only issue I have with it is I have to open and close the game at least 3-4 times before I can actually play it.

Not compatible with X :(

Why??? I was so excited to purchase this too small on my phone :( please fix

Phenomenal Adventure, excellent update!

Gameplay: First of all, this is a wonderful game. You're getting a full RPG experience from your phone! This game is very very long and the story is dark, immersive and detailed. I must say, I didn't find myself resonating with the story as much as Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced for GBA...but it's pretty exciting because you don't know what is going to happen next. Tips: Just as a warning, this game is very difficult, and you might require some power leveling, or change your characters' classes from time to time. The power of the Soldier skill "Focus" and other free skills that give you free JP and EXP every turn, cannot be understated. Make sure to save often, and make multiple saves! If you're really unlucky and save at the wrong time, you could end up with an unbeatable game, because you're underleveled for the current battle. This almost happened to me. A few battles are extremely hard and you will need to go back and power level to get up to speed. Killing human enemies, by waiting for them to "crystallize" is also very important. So is maxing out a thief--your enemies always seem to have better gear than you, and their gear is usually better than what's available to you to buy at a store. Performance: This game runs like a dream on IPhone 6+. I don't know if this is because the game was updated...but I've had absolutely no issues. iPhone users are a bunch of whiners, I don't understand the negative reviews here. iPhone 5 was a different story...I loved it to death, but you definitely want a bigger screen and bigger processor for this game. It did usually run cleanly on iPhone 5, but pre-update there were several crashes, and the game sucked the battery and cooked my phone--it was so hot you could get burnt. Overall: 5 stars, love it!

Classic freezing and crashing on iPhone 8

Very frustrating please fix this freeze and crash on starting.

Dont buy the game

I was at level 12 with most of my characters. I saved the game before every battle incase i lose, BUT that didnt help. I lost and when i wanted to battle again it would only let me load back from a lvl 1

Frequent crashes, no sound

iPhone 8+, iOS 11.2.1 Game will crash during fights, on world map, in menus, or sometimes when opening the app. Only closing and opening fresh helps. -2 stars Sound only works with headphones plugged in. I’ve tried everything and headphones are the only solution. -1 star The controls are as good as one could hope for playing this type of game on a touch screen. In other words, I’m not going to take away any stars for control. As for visuals and gameplay, I haven’t played FFT since the ps1 days and everything seems fine to me. It’s fun and I was looking to relive an old game so my expectations were met.

Good but...

Game is great but it freezes on me every once in awhile. I currently have the 8 plus

Good Game - Too Many Bugs

I love this game but after having it for a couple of days I think I might get a refund. It freezes repeatedly forcing you to close the application and restart it, losing progress and valuable time.


I love this game, it’s amazing but every time I try to play it freezes on me. I’ve jumped in three times now and it keeps’s starting to really annoy me. In the beginning it did this one and I just ignored it but now it’s becoming more frequent. 😒

Keeps crashing?

Just bought it due to the sale. Which is a great price. But is anyone else having issues with it crashing? I’m running it on a month old IPhone 8. I haven’t event been able to get start a game yet keeps crashing when I’m about to enter my name.

Doesn’t work

Just bought the game and can’t even get past the intro just constantly freezes, waste of money I guess.

iPhone X

iPhone X support please 💙
