Editors' Notes

Originally released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX set a new standard for the series—and it’s still astoundingly impressive. It’s a perfect blend of beloved RPG elements from previous entries and modernised battle encounters. As you make your way through the story’s twists and turns, you’ll encounter unforgettable characters, frighteningly powerful enemies and a wonderful fantasy world to explore.

Brilliant game, just one problem...


This is one of my favorite final fantasy games which i completed many years ago on the ps1.
The character graphics are great and obviously updated, although the backgrounds now look a bit flat.
The main problem i have is the battles, its so slow and choppy it makes it very hard to input any commands and im getting killed quite often because of this. It is strange because the rest of the game is very fast but as battles are a large part of this game i have had to give 3 stars. If they fix the battle speed then its definately a 5 star game but its just very frustrating at the moment.

Edit: changed my review to one star as the game is unplayable on my ipad 4 due to battles not working. I contacted square who told me a few things to try which did not work so i had to contact apple for a refund. Apple refused me a refund with no explanation as to why. So unfortunately one star now.

Edit no.2 i have changed my rating again because i decided to re-download this game after quite a while of not using it and it seems to be working a lot Better now. Fingers crossed it stays this way because i do love this game.

Games just how I remember with one niggling problem


Superb port of the game runs smooth (using a 6s plus) however one thing I'm getting so frustrated with is the press and move system. In the Chocobo forest for some reason (I'd say maybe a third of the times I do it) when I press to dig he just starts running right I've even made doubly sure I'm pressing it by slowing down how many times I press it and even when hit red centre it can still do it. If there would be an option to just be able to disable that feature and only go with the analogue then you'd see a 5 star from me.
