Staying true to the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy V Advance combines complex and heroic new characters with familiar themes and an exciting new storyline to be experienced. Players must guide Bartz, along with his chocobo companion, young Princess Lenna, amnesiac Galuf, and Pirate Captain Faris through their world in a quest to prevent the destruction of the four crystals controlling the world's elements. Players must utilise all their skills to battle their way past constant danger and prevent an evil wizard from destroying the world as they know it.
Players must guide the characters through a fantasy world, visiting towns, talking to other characters and battling monsters to do everything in their power to unravel the mystery of the crystals. Throughout the game's battles, players earn experience points enabling their characters to level up and become even stronger. Along the way, they'll also obtain stronger weapons and armour, improving their effectiveness in battle.
Final Fantasy V Advance features an evolution of the Job System introduced in previous titles in the series. Not only can players freely change classes and jobs throughout the game, a feature reflected in the characters' physical appearance, but certain abilities can be learnt and assigned independently of their job. Final Fantasy V Advance adds to the fun with new jobs such as Oracle, Gladiator and Cannoneer throwing a slew of new abilities into the mix.
But it's not all change; Final Fantasy V Advance still captures the essence of Final Fantasy with all the stunning elements fans have come to expect from the series. This game features classic series references, sweeping music, dramatic and diverse storylines and memorable characters. With all this added to the thrill of succeeding in the most difficult of quests, plus an all-new dungeon to explore, a unique job system and a host of all-new items to find, this really is a must have for all adventure fans.

There are the standard Final Fantasy turn-based battles and villages to visit but what makes it stand out is the writing of the characters you meet in these villages, there are some great little jokes and cute touches.
One thing I like about this GBA version is that it does have slightly improved graphics and new dungeons and character classes etc. but they haven't changed the essential feel of the SNES game so it's not so much a remake (as, for example the Nintendo DS Final Fantasy III) and is more like a rerelease. As an insight into gaming history as well as a merry little RPG in its own right, Final Fantasy V on the GBA is well worth taking a look at. If you're not already an RPG fan then - usual disclaimer - you probably won't like this. (Start with something else.)
With 3 new jobs than the SNES had, Great graphics, New improved soundtrack and much more
THIS GAME IS GREAT!!!
