It definitely lacks in character development and the story is no doubt a short one (through playable through 4 different view points), but yeah you have to remind yourself that this is an iPhone game. If for nothing else other than space constraints, I can fully understand why the story had to be short. I'd be happy to download a 1GB file for a game 5x longer, but most people wouldn't.

As for an FFIII remake, it would be nice is Square Enix put a little more effort into remaking its games... FF I and II were so disappointing because they were essentially just ports. Horrible graphics, even worse controls... I enjoyed FF III on the DS (even though it was chibi) because they actually remade the game instead of just porting it.
