Back to the Fantasy 12/18/06 Arkrex
Over-rated by far. This game just isn't worthy of this generation of gaming, yet it is priced the same as any other new game. 04/18/07 Beast404
Time to Relive the Old Days... 12/01/06 Dark_Schala
As if we really needed more proof of Square's failure since the merger. 01/19/10 UltimaterializerX
A mix of bad RPG elements with replay value and simplicity to make an adequate-at-best Final Fantasy game. What fun. 06/19/09 Bearissoslow
If a crystal ever talks to me, I'm gonna smash it! 07/19/10 BloodGod65
Insanely fun, in a twisted, psychotic kind of way 07/31/09 bluej33
Revolutionary gameplay does not necessarily make a quality game 07/03/08 brutusmuktuk
Old school game play wrapped in more modern looks 06/22/16 buruburu1
A fantasy reborn. 08/23/11 Calamity
Revisiting the game 20 years later. 06/24/10 caspienne
Worth getting if you haven't played before, but don't expect to be blown away 12/18/06 Chauncey_Mo
Overall it's fine, but just too frustrating at times to be enjoyed 01/22/08 Computerbug8
Corran450's Review Series Vol. 6: Final Fantasy III 09/11/08 corran450

We missed out on this one first time around. 10/21/09 Gilgamesh1317
Sixteen years doesn't seem that bad a wait for this title...... 02/11/08 gothic_chic
If RPGs were people, this would be the reckless party animal who died from a motorcycle accident at 22. 07/27/07 HeoandReo
Back to the Basics 09/04/07 horror_spooky
Lack of Story + Poor Executon + Repetitive Gameplay = The Worst Final Fantasy I've Played. 01/12/09 JenovaFollower
Words fail me to describe how much I love this game. 02/20/09 kiriyama2
Return to a time when Final Fantasy was true to its name. Relive the struggle between light and dark. Become one with the crystals... 11/28/06 LanceHeart Gothann
So Much Wasted Potential 03/20/09 LordShibas
A respectful update to an old classic 11/28/07 mayonaiserhino
Pretty but Far From Perfect 08/03/07 media_girl18
An almost perfect game, but it is too soon to call it a game of the year. 09/09/07 Mykas0
The main reason I bought a DS, and it did not disappoint! 05/19/08 Psycho Penguin
The kind of game you want to hate... until it grows on you. 02/13/12 roadtosalvation
A Remade game that keeps true to the original 12/23/09 rubsnick
Final Fantasy III finally arives on US shores, but was it worth the wait? 07/21/09 striker64
A remake of a lost game aimed mainly for fans of the Final Fantasy franchise 12/23/08 TheGreatUltros
The game's only flaw is a flaw in the genre itself 03/21/08 WishingTikal
A Game Robbed of its true value by its delayed trip overseas 07/08/13 Xenon
So many mixed feelings. 07/20/07 Zenax
After 17 years, this game is still fun to play. 12/18/07 Zylo the wolf
