I bought it on Onlive in anticipation of an iPad client. Finally I can play this. But between this and TWEWY...whoa. At least Final Fantasy Dimensions will let us pay chapter by chapter

So what could they mean by "Reimagined for iPad"? Just the change in controls or a different game somehow?

Any info on the controls? I'm getting a little tired of the touch to move like Orc and Horn. Not that it's going to stop my instabuy, just curious.

I hate to blow up the bandwagon, but in my opinion on the PC this game was pretty generic and boring. It's probably going to be amazing for the standard expected for iPad but I just couldn't get into it. For some reason, it gave me the same feel Guerilla Bob (if you remember that) gave me for the iOS app store at the time it came out - pretty but just mediocre.

Still worth trying at $5.

Never played, but it looks like my type of RPG. Given the track record, I guess it's a no brainer at $5? Looking forward to some gameplay video(s) as well...

You are not blowing up the bandwagon -- you just have a different opinion. You found it mediocre: most people (including me) didn't. I think you will agree that none of us here is an arbiter of taste.

No game will please everybody.
