Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Must-Play for fans of the genre

The app's price makes FFIX on mobile a much more viable option for playing this than spending potentially $40 on a 4 disc PS1 game, that's potentially hard to find. The game's main plot lasts over 30 hours or so, with several additional sidequests for stretching gameplay out further (friendly creatures, Ragtime Mouse, Mognet, etc.). The game isn't hard, every character has a set class, which simplifies item management. Additionally, new abilities are learned through items, and can be permanently fixed to the appropriate character by meeting the AP requirement, which is done by winning battles.
