    Considering the significantly lower price point at launch and the hundred plus hour package, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PC is a joyous occasion that allows for an additional audience to dig their teeth into the classic.

    Simply put, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is the most complete package for one of the most celebrated entries in the series. Not everything included has stood up to the test of time, but the sentiment of the whole being better than the sum of its parts describes this HD collection perfectly.

    The PC version brings accessibility and graphical upgrades, as well as the promises of unofficial mod-based improvements. If this is your first time with Final Fantasy X, I envy you — it’s a powerful journey that you won’t soon forget.

    Final Fantasy X - X/2 HD Remaster finally comes to Steam in a very complete edition with a reasonable price: a must have for every lovers of the saga that haven't played these masterpieces on Sony consoles.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PC is the definitive version of two great entries in the overall series. There’s more than enough additional content packed in, refined visuals and a remastered soundtrack that alone would be worth it, but put on top of it a few of the better Final Fantasy journeys and memorable characters, as well as mechanics and it’s an easy recommendation. If you’re missing Final Fantasy, waiting for FFXV, or just plain want a good RPG then look no further.

    After the console versions (PS3, PS4, PS Vita), this new porting of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD is definitely the best one available. Whether you love it or hate it, this is the version you need if you want to (re)play the adventures of Tidus and Yuna.

    The game certainly has its issues and downfalls but overall it’s a great game that is worth playing and now having the complete remastered version allows you to experience the games in one awesome package. Long time fans will enjoy returning to Spira and it’s a great way for first timers to jump in.

It is also probably the best PC port of Final Fantasy series' that Square Enix has ever given to us. Just you know, it supports HD resolution, adds 5 "game boosters" (something like cheats), auto-save is also available here. What's more? We can choose between original or rearanged OST. There are no more "addons " (oh, I almost forgot about Steam cards and achievements) in this port, but we don't need any more of them! The game is perfect itself. What am I talking about? Everything! Story, soundtrack, battle system - everything in this game was excellent even in 2001. Now, 15 years later, we can finally :) play it on our PCs and all the things that I mentioned are improved. It is totally worth buying!
    P.S. Final Fantasy X-2 sucks a bit, it is like J-Pop Charlie Angels, in my opinion FFX was much much better.

    The Final Fantasy game I was waiting for sooo long!
    The port is quite fine, everything more polished it almost does not look anymore like a 10 years old game (or more?)
    A lot of possibilities, as the control mapping (but is suggest to use a controller) as the choice between original and remastered soundtrack (always go on original if it's your first journey). Only the soundtrack itself means a lot.
    Speaking about the game itself is one of the Final Fantasy together with the 7 and the 9 (maybe) that even a pc gamer should know and play. The adventure is great, so are the minigames (blitzball addict!) and the plot itself. Combat is turn based and is well defined and never so hard. A particularity of this game is the levelling system, based on a "sphereoghrapy" where you decide where to focus you characters (even if following the standard route is probably the best choice until midgame at least).
    7 Characters means a loot of deepness and possibilities in each combat.

    The only bad thing is the framerate stuck at 30 fps, it might look a little "slow" compared to an average pc game. They just kept the original framerate. Some also complained about the huge amount of cut scenes and dialouge, but to me this is what build the plot of the game into its perfection together with the soundtrack.

    THIS GAME SOLD 8 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE, 4 million only on ps2, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

    When I saw this remaster come out for Playstation I almost broke down and bought a playstation so I could enjoy the memories of these twoWhen I saw this remaster come out for Playstation I almost broke down and bought a playstation so I could enjoy the memories of these two games. I still have my Final Fantasy X-2 strategy guide with notes written across the pages from my journey in Spira ten years ago. When I saw that it was going to released on Steam?! Happy thoughts for weeks. I will try to be unbiased through my review, no promises.

    Final Fantasy X
    To fuel my fire even more to play the remaster; Many years ago when I played this game I got stuck on one boss and in my innocence of youth I couldn't beat the Bevelle dragon. Eventually dropping the game all together, and skipping to X-2 when it released. I had my revenge this time around.
    The HD parts of the game are really nice and enjoyable. Increased features in the faces of most characters added more life to them compared to back on the ps2 game. Sadly it was only on certain parts of the game. You would go from HD faces to the flat features. I wish it was more consistent.
    Gameplay and combat are the typical turn based combat. Character progression is done on a huge sphere grid giving you the ability to branch characters off to how you want to build them. Granted some ways are blocked off so to start it is a linear path of building but later levels and spheres give you the chance to rework the characters.
    Story is decent. It starts off very slow, leaving you wondering what the hell is going on and why. Once things pick up you find a purpose to keep playing. Even though Tidus is considered the main character, I like to view Yuna as the main spotlight. The growth of her character is the spotlight in the game and continues into the sequel. Also I find Tidus annoying and the dialogue he utters is a instant face palm with a shake of the head.

    Some problems with Final Fantasy X: The Blitzball. The mini game is fun at first, I remembered playing it a lot before but then I recalled...I never won before because the difficulty is a large curve. The AI teams play x10 better then your team in any match. Its not impossible by any means to win. Just the odds are stacked against you. If you look online you see that there is a game glitch that you can do to always win.
    Camera control in the game is nonexistent and there are hidden chests on most off camera shots. You can only catch them between switching scenes and get lucky to spot the chest. Movement from frames lose their fluidity. Often leaving you to release the joy stick and move it again to continue the proper direction.
    I also wish the developers added some hints into the game about the hidden celestial weapons that you can unlock for each character. When I reached the end and was having problem taking out the final boss fights I did some research and found out about these special weapons for each character and the 3 special aeons you can get. Granted it just gives me another reason to play in the future.

    Final Fantasy X-2
    I got the remaster more for this game then Final Fantasy X. I still have my ps2 and a copy of Final Fantasy X-2, I never wish to get rid of that memory. Surprisingly this game could be my all time favorite FF game, beating FF7. Everything about the game had me captivated before and still holds the magic.
    Combat is tweaked from FFX; Still a turn based system but on a faster scale. They add some limits to it so a monster cant bash you to death if you cant make up your mind on a skill. Now the whole turn is based on how many individual turns each character (including monster) gets. A monster could attack you 2-3 times before all your characters take their attacks. It adds some speed to the game and quick thinking.
    For the remaster release they released a special video in between FFX and FFX-2 to fill in the gap of story. Thank you. It was not hard before to fill in the gaps between games but now it is done for you. The story for FFX-2 blows away the first installment. A treasure hunt to find a loved one that leads to you saving the world at the same time. Classic. Paced between five chapters, with only one chapter (chapter 4) feeling uneventful. Which oddly enough is where my favorite part of the game comes to play, Yunapalooza.
    Character development leaves the sphere grid and now takes form in dress spheres. There are a wide variety (With two special ones added with the Remaster) dress spheres that gave the wearer ability and stats. Each character can use any dress sphere and you have to use the sphere to level it up and learn skills. Within one playthrough ending at Level 65 I was able to master about 3-4 dress spheres for each character, out of the 19 total.

    Final fantasy X remaster: A good remaster of a game we PC gamers never got until now. Final Fantasy X is the last good Final Fantasy game inFinal fantasy X remaster: A good remaster of a game we PC gamers never got until now. Final Fantasy X is the last good Final Fantasy game in the series. It was the one which began the downward spiral, after the stellar IX, but it still remained a good FF entry.

    It has great production values and contrary to popular belief voice acting is not THAT bad. For its time...

    The story is really great, but overly complex. You will need to read about it again after you finish it, to clear things in your head. Still, it will really touch you in the end.

    The gameplay is boring though. There is no challenge, it is literally rock/paper/scissors. Certain enemies are weaker vs certain team members, so you switch them on the fly depending on the encounter. Boriiiinnnnggggg. You just have to suffer from it to see the story.

    If your time is limited, just watch a "movie version" on youtube. Otherwise, it is worth a playthrough.

    Final Fantasy X-2 Remaster: A remaster of a j-pop jrpg trash. Much worse gameplay and unneeded story that in the end spoils the story of X. I won't proceed to spoilers, but rest assured, it would have been better if X-2 was never made. Just don't touch this filth.
