This. Being able to do all side quests with freedom without feeling under-leveled, grinding etc. Also, speed up helps with things like the Chocobo Hot and Cold games.

E: I see they added boosters and stuff to speed shit up. That seems odd. Why remove part of the RPG experience? The game isn't THAT long nor is it that monotonous from what I remember.

None of them are, but people need instant gratification these days and want to say they've "beaten" a game, even if they have to remove the pesky "game" bits.

"I'm too busy! I don't have time for games!" say the people who will likely clock over a thousand hours into Destiny 2 and PUBG apiece.

This is why I'm glad some cheats disable trophies, so the people who support these cheats being there so they can more easily platinum the game as some kind of social badge to represent how big of a fan they are of FFIX have to actually put in a little elbow grease.

What's wrong with the ending? They made it as satisfying as possible with a touch of melancholy to make it memorable.

It easily had the strongest of the PS1 FF endings.

Does this version have proper analog movement with the left stick? That was a bit of a deal breaker for me in the PC version.

No analogue. This is the exact same as the PC version. I don't know why it took so long to come out on PS4 when they changed nothing.

Sucks is an exaggeration but outside of one small part of it (don't want to say too much in the OT of a game people might be playing for the first time) I just found it boring. I'd agree that VII's is even worse, complete nothing of an ending for a game with such a great story.

VIIIs is alright, nothing special

Yeah I'm kind of regretting buying this at full price. Really wish they'd done something about the UI and analog movement. As it stands, it's a lazy port of the mobile version that even comes with additional audio bugs.
I'd rather have the PS1 classic on my PS4. :p

I got all the chocographs without using the speed boost because I couldn't get used to it. Try and force yourself because that stuff takes forever. I suppose you could listen to a podcast while doing it but yeah. Kinda regret wasting hours doing that all over again.

Shame it never made it to Vita. There was a rumour Silicon Studio were making it. Suppose it is an awkward business decision when they can just buy the PS1 game.

Sure, but if you are a FFIV fan (and why would you NOT be?) you have SNES, GBA, PSP, and DS versions, none of which are bugged or objectively bad. Not bad!

Iíd pass on this version, at least at the price. Mega buyers remorse from me.

Shit UI. Shit movement. Shit fonts. Shit implementation of the speed up/no battles etc in fact the speed up is WAY too fast to be playable.

Figured after the FFXII remake being so great Square actually put an effort into things now. Obviously I was wrong. Taking the L on this one.

Bought just then for the third time... I was crap at it, After the forest and the city where you have the hunt I struggled after that, the difficulty spike seemed steep and I was unable to get past the dungeon after with the Mages in it.

I will try again, without cheats hopefully!

The music is the only issue I am worried about.

FF8 was my favourite followed by 7. I will give this game a chance

Maybe it's because I was just playing FFIV but the ATB bars in that game set to the slowest setting for battle speed is about how much the fastest battle speed is in FFIX. I can only bear it for bosses since I don't like to rush those battles. Otherwise I have to turn on speedup which is a bit too fast for my liking outside of grinding.

This is the worst part about IX. The ATB bars crawl. I was hoping they would have an option to speed it up in this version.

after every battle, the music of whatever town/dungeon/etc you're in starts from the beginning, instead of picking up where it left off before the battle started

its fucking stupid

Ah cool. I started playing this on Vita back in July, about 4 hours in. First time I played it since 2003.

Will probably pick it up on PS4 anyway as it's on sale.

Vivi is a puppet, given magical 'life' .. so.. I don't think he has any sexual characteristics at all.
