5 Hours Of Final Fantasy IX

Standard

I was thinking of posting earlier today a list of games I have only finished halfway through or games I’ve barely played. And then I started playing FF9, LOL.

Initial reactions then…

FMVs are gorgeous. Settings are gorgeous. Vivi is super cute. The “!” and “?” balloons are very helpful. The ability system is quite good and interesting. Trance system is a slight step back. Combat is super slow in comparison to previous games. I have a hard time accepting Zidane’s & Garnet/Dagger’s age, they look like 12-year olds! Story so far is good, nice humorous change from FF8.

And the time just hit 00:03, so this is considered a Wednesday post when it’s actually a late Tuesday post. :P
