Which Final Fantasy V should I use for my playthrough?

Drat. Drat drat drat.

Pros of Final Fantasy V on iOS:
  • It's got the giddy GBA script which I love (a sample of which is in my userpic). The Playstation translation was flatter than Yuna's voice acting. When I played originally, I had a copy of the GBA script next to me to reread all the lines. But it didn't include NPC dialog.
  • It will allow me to screencap, as opposed to sticking a camera in front of my TV.
  • Extra job classes and a bonus boss (this is not so important to me).
  • Paying silly price for old game. (Not really important; birthday is next week.)

Cons of Final Fantasy V on iOS:

GBA Final Fantasy V:

iPad Final Fantasy V:

It's much cleaner-looking, but characters have transformed from chibi sprites (cute!) to Gumby & Pokey.

PSX Final Fantasy V (this is what I've already got):

iPad Final Fantasy V:

It's odd... the avatars look more Amano-like, but for once, the snooty artsy style takes away from it a bit, to my eye.

I don't know, the PS script is bad. So, so bad. Sometimes hilariously bad, but still. And the badness of the translation kept me from ever really connecting with the characters or story. So I think it's an easy choice for iOS. But that's just my thought.

I am firmly in the iOS camp, since I love the GBA localization (and, conversely, can't stand the PSX version). FF5 was already a good game, but that made it great. ... I'm not sure how I feel about the Amano artwork being used so faithfully in-game (since it looks rather odd in that context), but that's very pretty. Might have to look into that if I ever go tablet and find an Android version.
