Excerpt: Thanks to a lack of FFVIII's overall sucess, Final Fantasy IX returns to the roots of the series for some classic gameplay. Battles are similar to those found in FFVII and the storyline has returned to dealing with the crystal of early FF games. FFIX follows yet another male thief and female summoner as they attempt to set right the wrongs in the world after being pulled into a large adventure.
Excerpt: Every rule must have an exception to prove it. The exception to my rule (which need not be stated here) is Final Fantasy IX. I came to play this title thanks to a generous co-worker’s loaned PS2 one summer, and had just enough time to delve deeply into it before the machine vanished once again. Certainly the time was worthwhile, and Final Fantasy IX is quite easily recommended to anyone seeking a quality Final Fantasy with more nods to the older style of the series.
Excerpt: Princess Garnet of Alexandria is celebrating her sixteenth birthday, with the Tantalus Theater Troupe arriving to put on a show, during which they kidnap her, sparking a long chain of events where her mother, Queen Brahne, wishes to take back her daughter by force. Squaresoft's Final Fantasy IX was the last numbered installment of the series to appear on the Sony Playstation, marking a return to the franchise's roots in many respects.
Summary: Final Fantasy IX fixed the big mistake of Final Fantasy VIII. It went back to basics in story which was great. It's not on the same level as Final Fantasy VII, but is better than many of the new Final Fantasy games like FF X-2, XI, and XII. The game play is great, the story is great, the only little problems I had with it was thea the game world wasn't that big and the game was pretty easy, not as easy as FF X or XII, but still easy.
Summary: Next to Final Fantasy 7 this one is my favorite Final Fantasy I got so much into this game I loved the story to it I loved the characters and thought their powers were super cool. The Final Fantasy trilogy is great for anyone of all ages writing this review makes me want to play them again. I give this one two thumbs up for how great it is i'm sure anyone would agree.
Summary: I seem to like this game a lot more than most other people. It seems that no one really hates it... but apparently no one likes it enough to mention it either (as opposed to Final Fantasy VII, which finds it's way in almost any conversation including Squaresoft). One thing I liked about this game was it's midieval appearance. The plot was good, no less than I'd expect from the series. You never know what will come next in this game.
Summary: While not as good as the all time favorite Final Fantasy VII, this final fantasy is still very good and as of now my second favorite. Unlike the fantasy after it FFX, this one has great movies but also has a great storyline. Despite the fact that there is a lot less technology in this game and that its more medieval, It is stil wroth playing over and over again. There are some great extras like the Chocoboo Hot or Cold Game and the Moogle Mail.
Summary: Why don't people like this game anyway? I don't get it. Moving on. Final Fantast IX is a great game, for those of you who refuse to play it. The only problems I have with it are little nitpickity things resulting from playing it ten times. (Saving the female lead gets old no matter what game it is anyway.) The plot is pretty basic, and most of the characters are really nifty (and adorable...VIVI!! Awww.).
Summary: Le neuvième volet de la série a été une très bonne expérience. Le scénario est impeccable avec des moments humoristiques, de la tragédie, des coups de théâtre, etc. Les graphismes sont excellentes pour un jeu qui date autant. Les décors sont très jolies et très détaillées. Les musiques de Nobuo Uematsu sont très bonnes également. Le gameplay est meilleur que le volet précédent.
Summary: Great game. If you like Japanese style RPG's, it does not get better than this. Comic style compared to other Final Fantasies, but it is a serious game. My favorite aspect was the story. Battles are a bit repetitive, but there is a lot of strategy involved so it is fun, anyway. Characters and dialogue are engaging. Art style is beautiful. I could not ask for more.
