Final Fantasy IX review
by Luke Irvin

This game, like all Final Fantasy games, is super addictive. Gameplay is great, and I love the open world aspect of the game. What really hurt this games value to me was the plot, and even more so, the execution of the plot. What awesome elements the first half introduces (apocalyptic monsters) just kind of get ignored in the second half. I personally felt the last boss battle was just thrown in there to have a big baddie in the game, and had no plot value and actually if anything muddied the existing plot. If this was plot wise only, it would definitely not be rated well, but the gameplay definitely picks up the slack. Ultimately this is a game I would recommend for existing final fantasy fans, but not outside the fan base.

Favorite game of all time. Great characters and story!
It was the first FF tittle that I played and was what definitely got me hooked on JRPG in the PlayStation 1 heydays. Although I wouldn't play it again nowadays anyone heart in into JRPG should give this a go.
