Pretty pastiche

Summary:

The kingdom of Alexandria is busied with great excitement as its people prepare for the performance of "I Want to be Your Canary," a famous play and favorite of her highness, Queen Brahnne. The giant of a woman sits atop her castle balcony, cooly fanning herself as she indulges in the fireworks, staring on as a theater ship sails through the sky and into the arena. Ticket buyers take their seats, less privileged delinquents navigate the city's rooftops in hopes of catching a glimpse of the spectacle, and the stage is finally set. The Queen cannot hide her anticipation. But while her maniaca...

Encompassing everything great about the genre

Summary:

I have got to be the only person in the world who can say that Final Fantasy 9 is the best game in the entire series while keeping a straight face. I just have to be. Everybody else will pick 6, 7 or 10 as their favorites and what they consider the best, but while they're pretty good, they don't, at all, hold a candle to the majesty that is Final Fantasy 9. It takes a while to appreciate this behemoth for all that it gives us. After all, it's not serious like its two predecessors; it's more light hearted. Amongst this... it’s just really damn good!

It starts with a group of bandits known as ...

FFIX - Final Fantasy 9

The good:

The last installment of Final Fantasy on Ps1, and it beats all the rest. The Characters are elaborate and interesting - everyone has their own story.

The bad:

I really can't think of any. The battle system can be irritating if you aren't willing to accept it, but other than that, the negatives are non-existent!

Summary:

FF9 has a significantly lighter, more humorous feeling to it, unlike FF8 or FF7. This game goes back to the basics of the other games 1-5 in some areas, hence the medival-type theme, but the speech and humour is modern and enough to keep you laughing, though crude at times!
FF9 has several references to other FF games worked in, but these are mostly just fun things the producers worked in, such as "No Cloud or Squall can harm us" and others. Another good point is the Storyline. The main character, Zidane Tribal, is different to the other FF heroes. Apart from trying to woo any other life...

Final Fantasy IX

The good:

Everything about it is genius.

The bad:

The graphics kinda suck if you were to play it today, but back then it was still good..

Summary:

Final Fantasy IX is one of those RPG's that are just.. amazing. Being as it is the last Final Fantasy to ever appear on the Playstation system, Squaresoft really went all out on this one. The gameplay, story, and battle system (even though its traditional), were all flawless. I loved the game because of the story, because it had a more origional theme to it. The graphics were great, and the battle system fits it perfectly. What really got me about this game, I dont even know. All I know is that it quickly became my favorite RPG on the Playstation system. The summons (Eidolons) were also rea...

Final Fantasy 9 - And they lived happily ever after

Summary:

Well this game is one of my favorite games, and why?
There are 8 unique charactes.
This game has good humour, and a character who gives you headache if you start thinking is she a girl or is he a boy...

How long is this game
- 4 dics
This game has many side quests and if you do them all you might find your self playing this game over 60 hours!

Battles
You can fight the battles with your friend! But everything else can only be done by one person.
The battles are nice you control all the 4 characters in the battle.

Music
There is no voice acting!
Music is really good in this game I'd give 10/10

Good old Square...

The good:

-Takes on the original Final Fantasy feeling, Classes, monsters, surroundings and feelings. It feels very different to 7 and 8. It feels warm.
-Minigames:
How i love to play cards. This version is different to FF8's Triple Triad, and I like it.
The chocobo section is great too. Searching for treasure gives the game a fun and happy feeling.
-The characters and graphics were rather nice.

The bad:

-The plot. It needs working on. I found the game a little boring compared to 7 or 8.

Summary:

I liked the game because it went back to basics.

7 and 8 were unique because they took as to a time that is "closer" to our own world. 9 took as somewhere different and crash-landed us in a world where a blob ruled a Kingdom, Airships are the main mode of transport, and hardaly any one is human.

Zidane is a great character to play as, because he is a perverted little monkey. He is a fun character, with a happy outlook on life, and can always see the light at the end of a tunnel...and generally sees the boss at the end too.

The Elodions (Summons) are great too. They look superb, and they tie in...
