    The original had analog directional controls. This version, rather bafflingly, doesn't.

    Yeah I am surprised. In any way you wanted to slice it (numbered games, PS1 era of games*, at the time, in the time since) I always found 9 to be fairly well regarded. From where I sat 8 was always the one that was considered the out and out worst of the PS1 era, though how bad it was varies from just not as good as the others to really quite bad. Depending upon the nature of your fanboy streak, or maybe just personal preference, 7 may have ranked higher than 9 but at no point was 9 considered a bad one.

    *1 through 6 are undoubtedly the same style of game, I find 7-9 mix it up a bit, 10 a bit more, 12 definitely, 13 was barely recognisable and 14 different again. So much variation makes the term final fantasy clone quite tricky for me (there was that LOTR game that was quite clearly a clone of heavily inspired by 10 but nobody would play it and think of FF6 sort of thing) and I tend to reserve it for games wanting to be 1-6.

    Thinking back through 9 I can't really recall anything that would make it not hold up today really, though the 1 health story events still annoy a bit.

    I personally think this game has a lot of potential to receive a full-fledged remake instead of a remaster. Or at least, a full remaster with revised character models and improved background textures. I think SE did an average job on this game.

    Get it on PC and then install the background mod and sound effect restoration mod, it's like how it should've been. And lookie here, Square Enix was yet again too damned lazy to port the game, but instead leave it to some no name company who can't port worth crap. This makes the Tales of Symphonia PC port look polished.

    SE didn't port it, some other company did, like the PC port was handled by Silicon studios Thailand, who didn't do that good of a job.

    If you're right, I stand corrected. Either way, been about 10 long years since I had my PSX.
