This game feels like a home run after almost two decades. The look may be a bit dated, but the gameplay still holds up, and the story still resonates. Final Fantasy IX is certainly worth the time of a first-timer or a nostalgic fan like myself. It's always a pleasant surprise to see how well a complex RPG can hold up almost 20 years later and a joy to have one of my favorite games easily accessible on a modern console.

Playing Final Fantasy once more, this time in Ps4, is one of the most notalgic and happy things. The renewed version looks nice and smooth and allows new players to enjoy one of the best game for PsOne.

Not all aspects of Final Fantasy IX hold up perfectly in 2017, but the PSone swansong is still a stone cold classic. Although you could argue that the PS4 port should do more to enhance the experience, the adventure's core strengths in world building and storytelling remain, and they're as flawless as ever. When all's said and done, masterpiece is still a word that we'd use to describe Final Fantasy IX.

Although this is nothing more than a port of the inferior PC version, Final Fantasy IX feels great on the Switch and will introduce a whole new generation to the game's many charms.

Eighteen years after its original release on PlayStation, Final Fantasy IX is back on Switch, but with all the flaws inherited from the PC/PS4 port of 2017. But in the end, its compressed soundtrack and smartphone interface will not make us forget the greatness of such an adventure, which could have benefit from a sweeter launch price.

Final Fantasy IX Remastered re-introduces one of the pinnacles of Squaresoft's Golden Age of JRPGs. Some aspects, including parts of the game's visuals, don't quite make the transition to the PlayStation 4 in good shape despite the improved graphics. There also aren't as many new features to distinguish it from the original. A likable cast of characters, however, combined with a well-crafted world and narrative makes this a must-have for any JRPG lover, especially those who missed it the first time.
