Back when Squeenix still knew how to make a good FF game.

Don't push it. :p While FFX was decent, it was the beggining of the decline.

Ah, the age of being able to sell a 17-year old game with minor improvements for over $20.

Tell that to the master, Capcom with USF2 at $40 lol. I'm not happy with the price for FFIX either though.

I take my words back. $20 is much better than $40. This is one of the reasons I love PC: Because of backwards compatibility, there's much less room for this nonsense.

Tbh it's worth those 20 more than many games today are worth 60. I do wish they had fixed the backgrounds. It looks odd when the models are higher res than the background.

I agree, and I haven't even had the chance to play the game yet despite owning it for years. I also agree about the background, and my opinion goes even further: I think many remasters look odd (in a bad way) because their environments weren't designer for such sharp image quality so they look very barren.

Worth it just for theme that plays the title music every time i turn on my PS4.

Dyllyo (on 19 September 2017)

Wait. REALLY?! I had no idea this was coming out. I still have the PS1 version, but I am getting this regardless. One of my favorite FF games
