    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is already great way to play these classic RPGs on the PS3 and Vita, and the even prettier PlayStation 4 version comes with the visual improvements you’d expect for the new-generation platform.

    Despite remastering a remaster, this game has a lot to offer, with two adventures that are still worth playing. Besides that, solves almost every problem on the original HD Remaster, making a perfect hit.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PS4 is the best version of the classic that you will find but the changes from the PS3 last year remaster are not enough to make us buy it again, despite the graphical improvements and the inclusion of the Uematsu original soundtrack.

    Amongst all the controversy on the possible oversaturation of HD remasters in the gaming industry, I feel this is one that deserved the treatment and more importantly, was executed competently.

    Still two great games, but the PS3 version is $30 cheaper.

    Still excellent, still worthy of a purchase... if you haven't already bought the PS3/PS Vita release, that is.

    We're expected to value high-definition treatment of pop video games, so the question of how Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster looks seems redundant. The real question involves whether Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 deserve attention more than a decade after their release.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The RNG and soundtrack issues have been fixed with the latest patch. PS4 version is the best version available. The only issues are the changes to Tidus and Yuna's face over the original designs. Expand

Let me remind you that some people (like me) don't have a PS3 or Vita, but we do have a PS4. So, I am more than happy that they released this on PS4. One of the best JRPGs of all time, plus its sequel, and the extra international version content. (Oh, and being able to switch between the new and original soundtrack is always a plus). 10/10 Expand

    My rating is for Final Fantasy X only. This collection is worth it just for that game.

    Before Nier, Final Fantasy X was had the most beautifully tragic story in a game (to me). If you're into tragedies in games, this is a must-play. It's coherent, meaningful, has adult themes, and there's not too much juvenile nonsense going on.

    I believe this was also the last true turn-based battle system in a Final Fantasy game, and it's excellent. You will die frequently if you don't employ any strategy (unlike most jrpgs these days), and you have all of the time in the world to make your decision since it is a real turn-based game.

    It also encourages you to frequently swap characters (can be done on the fly during battle with no repercussions), so you're not stuck in a situation where you only use certain characters and all of the others end up unused and under-leveled.

    Here's the general downsides of the game which may or may not bother you:
    - The random battles are very frequent compared to modern games.
    - The HD updates are inconsistent. They basically only updated the main character's heads. When scenes switch between showing your characters and an un-updated character or un-updated part of your character, immersion is broken a bit.
    - There's still a bit of jitter in the character motions. I believe this was one of the first games were the motions of the characters were done by motion-capture actors, so there's jitter in almost all motions. It was smoothed out a lot for this HD remaster, though.
    - English voices only. Thankfully the English voice acting is above-average, even compared to modern games.
    - The game is very linear. It's meant to tell a single set story, so you won't find a lot of possibilities for deviation.
    - Although the story is very good overall, there are quite a few generic bad guys who give unconvincing reasons as to why they're bad / want to kill everyone / want to destroy the world.

    And finally, I will say that this is a standard sort of story, like most games (and unlike the Nier games), meaning that you'll be able to understand the full thing just by watching someone else play it rather than playing it yourself. Not that this is a bad thing, but Nier just set a whole new bar in storytelling.

    Quick impressions of the other included games:

    I forced myself to complete X-2 this time around (I couldn't do it when it originally came out). All of the good and tragic storytelling from X isn't here. X-2's story is comparable to a typical power rangers episode and is downright juvenile in my opinion. It's like we're watching our heroines regress into teenagers rather than growing as individuals. But if you don't mind that sort of thing and just want more Yuna, you might find something to like here.

    X-2's battle mechanics went bonkers and there's not much strategy other than picking the dress sphere (class) that counters your enemy and holding down X while your characters auto-attack. There's more to it than that with some boss fights, but holding down X is what you'll be doing for most of your battles.

    I couldn't force myself to complete the X-2 final mission game, which is a grid-based, turn-based dungeon crawler. It's fiddly to control and the camera angle and screen-covering text boxes aren't things that I like.

    Este es el ultimo vestigio de los final fantasy clasicos. Muy buena historia, el sistema de esferas es buenisimo. La durancion del juego en siEste es el ultimo vestigio de los final fantasy clasicos. Muy buena historia, el sistema de esferas es buenisimo. La durancion del juego en si no es muy larga. pero si quieres completar todo durarias un siglo.
    Tiene buena lavada de cara. Para los que gustan de los clasicos rpg por turnos este es mas que recomendable.
