"For one, the game's learning curve is a joke, and I'm sure will prove to be a major stumbling block for new players. It starts absolutely rock hard, and you'll be spending a good few hours engaging in random battles just to level up your party to the point where you can defeat a story battle. But once you've done that, you'll find the battles immediately after are very easy, until you get to the next rock hard story fight and you need to do a bit more levelling.
You'll soon find that the camera can be extremely annoying too, but by far the worst of the game's flaws is with the multiplayer side of the game, which is largely unusable.
Despite these flaws, FFT remains one of my favourite games on the PSP. It might not have the best in-game graphics we've ever seen on the handheld, or the best multiplayer options, but few games have as much charm and tactical depth. It might not be for everyone, but for those of you with a sweet tooth for turn-based RPGs it's essential."
