    Square Enix's labor of love re-imagines two classic RPGs with stunning visual fidelity and enough content to yield hundreds of hours with some of the best role-playing in two generations.

    Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster is the best High Definition remaster we can see in the now-past generation of consoles. Aside from the quality both titles had, Eternal Calm and Last Mission are very interesting additional content for the fans of both games.

    For newcomers, this is a great opportunity to finally play this coveted classic. Bring in the fact the the HD visuals look nothing short of stunning more than a decade after the game’s original release, and you’ll find that Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster is yet another reason to keep your PS3 running.

    Not every HD edition deserves a place in our room, but this one does. The story of Tidus and his fellows is still remembered among it fans, and this is a great opportunity to live it or experience it again.

    As a collection of all the parts of the Final Fantasy X saga — including a lot of content that has never been released in North America previously — it delivers an experience that comfortably sits with the best of the genre, even if it doesn't quite look the part.

    With Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Square Enix has done a great job refreshing two old games and turning them into something appealing for the young players of the HD generation. Both the graphics and the sounds of the games are in a very good shape despite their origins.

    It was a giant step forward at the time, but it just doesn’t hold up under scrutiny anymore, compared to advances in contemporary RPG gameplay.

    From time to time I would dust off my ps2 and play these 2 games. They nailed the remaster and everything looks beautiful. Not to mention the integrity of FFX's story won't ever become outdated. I cannot wait to put another 100+ hours into them. My favorite RPGs just got better. Expand

    Probably the only game to ever make me cry, FFX's story really captures you and it's aged really well. It kept me interested from start to finish. I think that the simplicity of the story is what kept me and many other people focused on progressing through this wonderful, magical game. Expand

    I love FFX. It's one of my favorite games ever made, and I'd give it a 10/10 any day. The graphics look so much better and more colorful than in the original, and I would say that this is the best version available of the game. That being said, there are major problems with this remaster:

    1. FPS lag. I know the PS3 is eight years old, but this is ridiculous. Even openworld sandboxes like "Infamous 2" (2011) didn't have any FPS problems. FFX is a linear game, and you can't even move the camera, so why the FPS drops? These drops happen when there's a lot of stuff on the screen, such as when throwing a grenade or using spells.

    2. Load times. In the PS2 version there weren't any loadtimes, except for those half a second cuts when you leave an area. In this remaster those cuts have increased to five seconds. This might not sound like a problem, but it gets really irritating in the long run.

    It seems this remaster was a rather rushed product. These problems do not break the magnificent game though, and I would recommend it especially if you missed out on the game in the PS2 days.

    And as for FFX-2... It sucks. It has always sucked. It still sucks. Don't touch it.

    Being the game that got me into RPGs and gaming all together, I would change my PS3 cables for my PS2 ones and play them again and again, completely ignoring the fact I buy a new game every week or so and pushing it aside to join my favourite characters on their journey to defeat Sin once and for all. Square did an amazing job rendering everything in HD, it's even more beautiful to watch--not to mention I'm thrilled to finally get my hands on a copy of FFX: The Eternal Calm and FFX-2: Last Mission. I just received this in the mail after waiting five months for it, and I cried as soon as I was able to pop it into my system. Expand

    Having been an enormous fan of this game when it originally came out, to see it again, remastered and in portable format is a joy. The music (for X) has been tweaked and is comfortably as good as the original (traditionalists may disagree, but I think it's actually better). The gameplay is much the same as before, which is definitely a good thing, however the addition of being able to quickly heal your party with the swipe of your finger on the screen is a great addition. The story is exceptional, and after the recent XIII installments (read: tragedies), the throwback to the non-linearity of FFX is outstanding. Add in trophies for those needing some incite to complete absolutely everything in this amazing RPG and you've got a phenomenal package on your hands. The only slight downside is that you can't skip cutscenes, so for those that do indeed trophy-hunt, a little patience is required here and there. Brilliant. Expand

    For me this is the last good Final fantasy which was made and i'm ecstatic that its now been remastered and looks better than ever.
    Final
    fantasy X is simply JRPG at its finest. I've read reviews stating that this game hasn't aged well and now seems dated which i think is nonsense.
    The only negative i can think of with this remastered addiction is that there are times when the voice and animation isn't in sync which is pretty noticeable.

    remaster of a game that didn't needed or deserve one.

    FFX was good when launched. It's not now. tidus voice is bad. "yuna and her friends"
    (known by squeenix as ff x-2) is the worst game ever released.
    Do not waste 40+ bucks on a game that doesn't deserve even 5 bucks. "additional content" was content that was taken out of the US release of the game. That's it. It's really not worth spending money on this rehash of a past glory of squeenix.

    rehash done wrong, as the graphics are not merged correctly and there is lip sync issues throughout the entire game. AVOID.
