  • 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.

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.

Final Fantasy IX

Playstation Illustrated
19 April 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 .

Final Fantasy IX – Review

GameCritics.com
28 December 2003
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I believe Shakespeare said it best when he wrote the famed quote "what's in a name". To this day on I still would take that quote and put it next to a franchise like Nike, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, etc. So where am I going with this you say?

Final Fantasy IX

Into Liquid Sky
2 June 2003
  • Excerpt: With promises of a return to the more traditional style of Final Fantasies, Square brought to America probably one of their strongest FFs for the Playstation yet. Sporting highly detailed characters, eye-blowing FMVs and a return of the four-person party, Final Fantasy IX is a great game that's fun...
  • Pros: Grand CG-rendered movies, Excellent story and characters, Numerous side games and hidden items
  • Cons: Linear gameplay, Tetra Master is difficult to play, Maybe too many FMVs

  • Excerpt: Entering hand in hand with the “cuter” super deformed look is a story line that is a little more lighthearted than the previous Playstation Final Fantasy efforts. If the other Final Fantasy titles were “Interactive Movies” then FF IX is an “Interactive Action/Comedy.
