Final Fantasy 9 - How good is it?

#61xyxrxuxafraidx(Topic Creator)Posted 2/15/2013 7:00:14 PM
K... I've been playing it..... at the part where I just kidnapped the princess and their ship crashes.


What turned me off at first was the kiddy looking characters, but I'm over it now... its actually pretty interesting. I like Vivi and Zidane so far. The story seems less serious than the typical FF but its kind of unique and funny... its keeping me entertained at least.

Ok, will give this game a chance! How is the main villian?

Talking about the main villian is kinda spoilerish, but, to let you know about him, he's *Spoilers for the end of disk 1* a dude who looks like a lady. *end spoilers*

He is a bit interesting, but nothing too spectacular (he does have interesting backstory though).

And it gets more serious as the plot progresses. I think it starts to escalate by the 2nd Disc.

I can vouch this. Zidane will ALWAYS use Steal in this game, Steal gets you good armor early in the game. By the time you run out of enemies to steal from, Thievery, which damages based on the number of successful steals, will deal 9999 easy.

It's just a shame this game didn't have a way to break the damage cap. None I found, anyway.

Its better than 7. And don't ask FF7 fans to rank FF games, you're obviously going to get the same answer. As of rank it is the best.

Zidane is a thief.


True! good one tough...

But he need to be in berserker mode to do 9999 in end game :/
or trance...


Make him steal a lot and his Thievery move will do 9999 every single time. It's similar to Freya's Dragon Crest where it requires a certain number of things to do 9999 damage.

Not as good as FFVII, arguably better than FFVIII, one of the best FF of all time.
