Final Fantasy X is a true masterpiece and one of the best JRPGs of all time. FF X-2 is a decent addition to the franchise. Combine these two games in an HD version with a budget price and you get a superb deal.
Final Fantasy X is an outstanding masterpiece. I can't stop thinking about it since I've played it, its music, art and story will always stay with me. In terms of gameplay, I think it is the most interesting of all the Final Fantasy games released so far, because it offers turn-based combat where you have more time to think and plan strategies. The characters are absolutely charming, each one has their own story, they are full of charisma. What fascinated me most about the story was that it was told by the protagonist himself. This character, Tidus, uses this type of narration (in the first person) to reflect his feelings, emotions and thoughts in every situation, which enriches the development of the plot.
In conclusion, this video game surpasses excellence and is my favourite game of all time.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD does justice to the original with a high-quality conversion and many extras. The title has aged very well and makes us regret the previous chapters with a gameplay that takes us back more than ten years without ever letting us weigh the time that has passed.
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.
Really good game. Lots of things to do besides the main quest. It is a pretty hard game though especially X compared to the usual games. It's more about skill when it comes to fighting rather than strength which might interest you.
The game has excellent combat mechanics and the story is interesting, but I'm not sure why this one gets a pass for its linearity while XIII gets bashed by everybody. Basically, the game is walk forward a little down one path and either a cutscene or battle is triggered. I understand that the game is old, but I was hoping for a little bit more of an open world experience than what this game delivers.
While instantly aesthetically displeasing and having bad writing and bad voice acting [really campy b-movie level], it really did seem like it was an 8/10 early on. As the game goes on it becomes more and more abrasive for many reasons.
-The random encounters are all rock paper scissors fights where you hit really heavy and so do they, so you have to manually heal your party after every single battle
-They hype up this big sports game in the story, then when you finally get to play it, it is a rigged match made for you loose badly in, and then instead of that mattering for the story like they hyped it to, the game disappears into the menu at save spots as an optional minigame
-there are very annoying puzzles with unnecessary menus that pop up anytime you want to do something
-There are very few enemy types, they get reused often and in the same exact combinations
-There are very very cheap enemies that can wipe out your entire party before you even have a turn later on, making them harder than bosses
-the protagonist is exceedingly dumb
-a sex scene happens completely out of no where with no lead up romance
-there is a race of people who speak a different language, and you find books that teach you one letter each, and you never piece it together. You are supposed to combine the letters your friends have found on the same game system by combining the save files. So you go through the game watching all this dialogue in a different language annoyed that you can't understand it and are missing parts of the story.
-the airship in this game is unusable
-they didn't bother to lip-sync the characters to the english audio
-an entire level where you have to constantly be on edge for lighting to hit you
-and you can't skip cutscenes
This last point brings me to where I quit. After a 5 minute long cutscene, I was faced with a boss that killed one of my party members before I even had a turn, and then later killed them all in one hit. When you get a game over, it doesn't offer to reload from the start of the fight or the cutscene OR your last save file. It goes back to loading the main menu. You have to click through to prevent the opening movie to play, load your game, walk back to where you were, and sit through the same poorly written, poorly acted cutscene again, only to face the same poorly designed boss.
I truly do not know why this game is highly regarded, I am more disappointed in the community than the game.
At first it seemed pretty cool. I could play through as a giant crab if i wanted to. The job system is cool. I love their goth friend. The way they tease each other is funny and lighthearted. But the more I played, the more sloppy the design became. I went to a place with a mission, it didn't tell me where that mission was, eventually I encountered a red "go there!" arrow on my mini-map, and when i went where it told me, there was nothing to do there. So I tried another mission and it involved going through an entire level you already went through in FFX just to have someone run away so you have to backtrack through that entire same level again, all with random encounters. This is a sloppy mess.
Yes, original release of Final Fantasy X I would have given a 8 to, but this HD release being sold for 30+ dollars is not worth it. Graphics don't hold up, loading screens every 1 minute just to walk into a room. They could have made entire game with no loading screens with today's technology but programmers were too lazy. Game not even close in quality to today's indie games. Should have done a remake, HD releases are a waste of time and money, and just a money grab by companies who can't come up with new game ideas.
Remake old game releases, don't make HD versions of old outdated gameplay.
