Ok, I know this is lame but I couldn't find many reviews on FFVI for PS1. I'm a casual FF gamer (played 4,7,10,and 13) but never played 6 which is considered one of the best.
Is the PS1 port worth the five bucks or would I better served finding another version to play? I have most devices but having it on the vita seemed like an ideal situation. Are load time alleviated with the digital copy? Are controls decent? Otherwise I bought 9 because it always looked fun and I'll get to it when I finally finish Persona 4.
FFVI on PSN that's playable on PS3/PSV still has those load time before/after battles and when you try to go into your menu. It's not unplayable because of the 1-2 seconds delay but it certainly isn't ideal. Otherwise the FMVs are a nice little addition and the game has some very small extras like a compendium which is nice.
If you don't mind the extra load time compared to more or less instant transitions in most of the other versions of the game, I'd very much recommend the game at $4.99.
However, if you're going for the ideal experience of a retro game like FFVI, you can't beat playing it on a SNES in its original form.
