    Imo with 4 character's you can bring out the 'Hit Squad' as I call it, Garnet, Zidane, Vivi, and Stiener.

    I try to have Zidane, Vivi, another physical attacker, and a healer.

    I love Freya as a character, shes awesome, but as a fighter, she is the one that usually gets left behind the most.

    OK here's who not to use...Eiko generally sucks...Freya; Dragons moves are cool but otherwise sucks...and Quina...well you know why!

    My team was Zidane,Vivi,Eiko and Steiner.

    Garnet is more powerful than Eiko in terms of dealing damage,but if you want a Healer,pick Eiko.Her Full-Life is really useful,and the different version of her Pheonix saved me when everyone was dead in my fight against Necron.

    I agree Quina isn't that great to use in battle.Freya and Amarant are great,but in my game I didn't train them much.

    I think having 4 characters is a bonus,but there's also a downside.They're stuck to their own attacks and they can't exchange Materia or Magic or GFs or Eidolons,so they're not well-rounded in attacks.You see my point?

    I would have to agree that Vivi was one of the greatest characters in an FF game.

    The only thing I didn't like about 9 was how girly Zidane was. I for one dislike playing as a girly child.

    Much better than 10 though.

    He had hips, was shy, and never did anything to lead you to believe he had any testosterone. He was girly.

    Hands down Zidane's a girly boy...but still he was ok I suppose...better than his brother (thats right no?) Kuja....who was even more of a girl...with his dresses...yess that was off-putting to say the least.

    Hey who cares whether he looks like a girl or not his character is the main focus in the game! And I don't think his tail is girly either! Btw, CB Swords, Zidane was only shy with cute girls like Dagger...all boys get shy with cute girls, are you saying that they have no testoterone? :D
