A strong point indeed. In fact, I don't see any good reason to not play this.

I've said this before that if you look at all the parts of FFIX, it seems great, but put it together and it bores me so much. I've given this a lot more thought recently, and I think I know the two parts that really bother me: The battles are atrociously slow (even if otherwise sound) and the battle music is awful. The remake would have to be more than just cosmetic to make me happy.

Are you implying that the normal battle theme in FFX isn't fantastic? Shame on you.

Is good enough for the role that track has to fulfill, but as a stand-alone piece of music it has never done anything for me (I rather hear 'Birth of a God' from FFVII instead).

All FF battle music is kind of meh. It's just that they all get repetitive because of the grinding.

As for the slow part, FF8 has slower battles.

Agreement granted.

I liked it, but it is over rated.

They are both too slow. FF8, while having some interesting things to it, was a bad game.

Chrono Cross - Gale
Final Fantasy X - Normal Battle

Neither of those games are ATB system. They are straight turn-based, no waiting for actions (except cast animation could be pretty long at times). I am fine with their speed.

As for the slow part, FF8 has slower battles.

I disagree on all three points.

FF9 is like mom's cooking.  You don't appreciate it at all when you're growing up but when you're older, go off on your own (like to college or something) then you realize how "together" mom's cooking is. 

I see that with FF9.  When it first came out, it wasn't as fresh, sexy, or exciting as the McDonald's we wanted as kids (esp. those with the play areas) but as we've grown and matured, we lately seem to appreciate FF9 more because it was cohesive (it did not have screwy plot holes, straight-up plot cop-outs, or brooding self-hating characters like FF7 and 8 did).  And, hey, even when stuff's spiraling out of control, somehow mom pulls it all together come dinner time.
