This Tales of Phantasia Deserves to Die

CCC Says: "The iOS incarnation of Tales of Phantasia is on its deathbed. In-app purchases are ending on July 29, 2014, while it will leave iTunes on August 28, 2014. Normally, this would be a time to lament the loss of a widely available version of a classic JRPG, but instead, all I can think is this: good ridance.

The iOS version of Tales of Phantasia was a blight on the name of one of the best JRPGs the SNES had to offer. It was a travesty, a sham, and an example of how corporate greediness could ruin an otherwise wonderful game. I'm glad it's dying, because it deserved to die. It should have been shut down immediately after Namco Bandai launched it, and the company should have been forced to make a formal apology for this application." (Mobile, Tales of Phantasia)
