Fantasy Revisited

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: As the last new Final Fantasy game to grace the PlayStation console, Final Fantasy IX closed the era with a throwback to its origins. Instead of further advancing the series graphically by making it look realistic like the prior two games, IX takes a step away from realism and focuses on characters and the story behind them.

Final Fantasy IX – Review

GameCritics.com
14 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Square's Final Fantasy series was never meant to be a "series" in the truest sense of the word. Unlike the Metroid or Suikoden franchises, for example, the collection of role-playing games released under the banner of Final Fantasy did not follow a chronological progression. Each game had its own self-contained universe and unique inhabitants, who for the most part were not seen again in subsequent titles.

Final Fantasy IX

Playstation Illustrated
12 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Just as Final Fantasy VIII pushed the limits of the PlayStation's power, Final Fantasy IX edges it out just that little bit farther. There are very few screens in the game that don't have something moving in the background, which is done in the same 3D-on-2D that we've had since Final Fantasy VII . The design of the world is also jaw-dropping, from towering tree-cities to dank catacombs, and everything in between.

  • Excerpt: One of my friends described Final Fantasy IX as macaroni and cheese. It tastes good and you like it, but it's not one of the more exciting or exotic flavors. Hence the game is not as often talked about or heavily debated as Final Fantasy VII or VIII. I have to say, she was absolutely right about that (along with a great many other things about life.) In fact, her assessment of Final Fantasy IX is why I now describe good quality throwback RPGs as "comfort food" RPGs.

Final Fantasy IX

Just RPG
22 June 2004
  • Excerpt: Being the last Final Fantasy on the original Playstation gave IX quite the reputation to live up to. It was a grand finale for the best RPG console ever, and it turned out to be a masterpiece that certainly lived up to the expectations. It's one of the most fun RPGs I've ever played and overall it's just a great game!

Final Fantasy IX

RPG LAND
28 December 2003
  • Excerpt: The last Final Fantasy on the original Playstation, Final Fantasy IX ‘s whole catch was “The Crystal Comes Back.” Media outlets often described the game as being more like early FF’s with phrases like “return to its fantasy roots.” What these turned out to mean, however, wasn’t what players expected.
