I loved this game nearly 16 years ago as a joyous farewell to a series I felt was drifting away from me. Even though I ended up adjusting just fine to Final Fantasy's new direction from that point on, I still love Final Fantasy 9 today. Not as a farewell to the traditional, but as a wonderful celebration of it.
So, should you play Final Fantasy IX on your iPad? Well, that entirely depends. If you have a real hankering to play it again, you may just be able to forgive the awful visuals and imperfect control scheme. Everyone else should probably stay clear though, and just play the original PlayStation version instead. Ironically, the lower resolution visuals will actually appeal more than this because they won't be quite so inconsistent.
If you’re a fan of the game, a fan of the series who’s been wanting to try this particular entry, or an RPG fan in general, definitely consider giving it a try.
