HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

iOS, An­droid US$20.99, RM92.74 This clas­sic RPG from year 2000 holds the high­est Me­ta­critic re­view score out of all ex­ist­ing Fi­nal Fan­tasy games, beat­ing its new­fan­gled suc­ces­sors de­spite hav­ing PlaySta­tion 1 graph­ics and a sim­ple sto­ry­line. It's rel­a­tively bug-free, com­pared to other Square Enix ports that are avail­able on the App Store. As a game, it's tech­ni­cally ro­bust and well-bal­anced; with a plot that blended ad­ven­ture, friend­ship, self-dis­cov­ery, and ro­mance (that's all we can say with­out spoil­ing too much). If you want to re-live a good con­sole port, Fi­nal Fan­tasy IX cer­tainly checks all the boxes.

One of the best Fi­nal Fan­tasy games gets a new breath of life through smart­phone ports. Tech­nol­ogy is awe­some.
