    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.

    The modern day Square Enix track record rarely does itself any favors, but this is one instance where I think the company and talented folks involved should be commended for their effort.

    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.

    Thus while these remakes do not offer much new, they are remakes of such high-quality games that they are worth revisiting, or visiting for the first time.

    By no means as bad as people make out, X-2 is a strange but worthy inclusion, but it is likely to be the story of young Tidus that leaves a lasting impression.

    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.

    8.5 that's a shockingly low score i can only guess the same guy kept making accounts and gave this game negative reviews because to be honest8.5 that's a shockingly low score i can only guess the same guy kept making accounts and gave this game negative reviews because to be honest i have played pretty much every RPG going and finished them and they don't get much better than this epically when you take into account the games age hearing peoples complaints about this really did make me laugh the graphics people really this game came out on the ps2 and looks 100% better than it did, and saying that it feels old and dated would lead to me question to why you bought the game in the first place its a remaster not a remake from the ground up and the argument about the graphics guys look at FF7 yes one of the best RPGS ever and graphically rubbish anyway enough of my rant.

    If your fan of RPG's you will more than likely love FFX and FFX2 even if the girl power theme is a horrible idea in FFX2 getting back to FFX the looks great the improved graphics and the remastered music takes some getting used to but i soon loved it and the comments again about the world leading you down a straight path well yeah for the start of the story the game pretty much leads you down a path which i wouldn't call straight until you reach the calm lands at which point you can pretty do as please, you will be revisiting areas to find new and hidden items, bosses, NPC interactions, hidden areas, summons, finding new player for blitzball, monster capture, so plenty of stuff to do and explore, anyway moving on to Blitz ball one of my favourite mini games of all time think football under water now you will either love or hate this mini game but its in your interest to like it as it pays out useful items if your team wins that is,i love the fact you can recruit NPC to your team as well i spend lot of time deciding what type of team i want. The story still holds up as one of the best ever as does the turn based combat just a quick note if you have never played ffx before be sure to have a guide handy or a friend who played the game combat can seem unfair at times if you don't know the tricks to defeat some of the tricky bosses same thing for goes late game lvling, If some reason you haven't played FFX drop what doing go get a copy and enjoy.

    Moving on to sigh FFX2 don't worry this will be short now firstly great combat system no problems the world and main characters also no problems apart from the way over the top girl power vibe which would not have been to bad if they did it differently, and then my major problem with FFX2 is the hellish trophies and then their is the Leblanc Syndicate aka team rocket no really they are basically team rocket the act the same predictably fail in the same manner and try and steal your stuff all while delivering bad lines and breaking up a story which mite be OK if they had less to do with it and the ending doesn't really help either and the nail in the coffin was ruining blitzball why, anyway the positives again the game looks great and in terms of combat the game is arguably much stronger than FFX so while it sound like i am saying FFX2 is crap it still one of the best RPG's i have played so finally my verdicts on the games FFX 10/10
    FFX2 9/10

The game has held up well in terms of gameplay, character and story. I think they could have done a bit more with the graphical upgrade and give the option to have the original soundtrack(not that the remastered soundtrack is not awesome) but besides these two very minor points its a fantastic game. Two games for the price of one and additions to the games as well as achievements added make this a well worth purchase of $40 when released and about half that price now! Expand

If you never played X / X-2, and have a PS3/Vita/4 or PC, then have a go for it! You won't be disappointed.

    Well, there is one thing that kind of disapointed me, is that it lacks the original music. It's now all remastered. Not saying it's bad, though.

Updating and making sure sound effects, music, and videos or game play animation can be a chore so it doesn't look off to the rest of the game. Thankful this is one game that pulls it off nicely. Game play besides some off quests are smoothly integrated into the game skilfully. Most music is nicely update with tones from the older game. Graphics and animation are still as beautiful as the first time you played via Ps2 era and everything you come to love from a turn based RPG game is here.

    Some of the voice to animation/video is off and some of the game side quest can be tedious with also backdrops not meshing well... but all can be forgiven with the time and care that was given with this game. Now if future Final Fantasy games were given such treatment my love for the franchise can continue...

    OMG I'm so **** upset. Platin'd FFXII-2 and beat the hardest boss Aeronite in FFXIII-3, and now this in X. It's virtually impossible to beatOMG I'm so **** upset. Platin'd FFXII-2 and beat the hardest boss Aeronite in FFXIII-3, and now this in X. It's virtually impossible to beat the hardest bosses, or ever get there. The game is completely screwed up. I wasn't noting anymore from a certain point on. Here you go. The game is crap. Just received a hint, but it is crap.
    The battle menus have to be scrolled.
    Capturing monsters for the arena has no counter - if not I do know what’s in my pocket, who else? In contrary to FFXIII-3, where the player has to extinct a species, which implies fiends not being carried around, it’s understandable that for e.g. foes, that fall like flies, no counter is introduced (I simply hunt them until none show up anymore).
    A set of monsters is never randomized, but rather the set that the player has to battle is random.
    Every time Lulu beats an enemy, she waves her breasts into the player’s face. That’s a peanut that’s forced unto the player and offends his intellect. If the sweets are optional, it’s a great way for the player to decide himself in when he experiences it, adjusting the experience. The designer’s insecurity over his product can be measured by the amount of breasts he implements: If he thinks he fails, he will try to hand out ‘consolation’, to calm the crowd. (ref. “Mirror of Fate HD”, scene of the succubus)
    The game is linear as heck; what’s the supposed to-be difference to FFXIII, which was criticized so much yet this was rated 9.6? When looking at the guide, or simply playing the game, it very often even appears as if the player would be heading through straight tubes from one to the next section.
    The character’s on the battle screen appear to have ‘spasms’ the moment they are getting “blessed” with haste; icons indicating the status of the character figure would have been better.
    It’s not possible to see the player’s maximum amount of HP / MP on the screen, yet there’s so much space left on it.
    Selecting enemies on the battle screen is not uniform -
    On the board screen it says “Teached the ability Water.”. Better would have been: “Water: Deals light water damage.” as abilities often are not self-explanatory.
    The chocobo can’t fly or jump.
    The player cannot open the map. Ever.
    Though the player is collecting more than one sphere, only the Jecht’s Sphere shows up in inventory.
    The Dragonball-like pursuers on Mushroom Rock don’t even have any kind of text, so incomplete the game is.
    Maechen (Mt. Gagazet): “And that, is the tale of that.”. (?!)
    At the monster Arena there’s a FFVII style music: Either it should’ve been a FFVII style game or a different music in that case.
    You copied Icewind Dale in Guadosalam. Hard.
    When e.g. poisoned by an enemy and the next turn would kill either the player with his last standing character but one slash of his weapon would kill the enemy, both die though it was the player’s turn that’s been the last.
    When you enter Besaid Temple, your path is blocked by a Dark Aeon summoner. No chance of escape, all in-between progress lost.
    Missable Al Bhed Primers. Why doing that to the player?
    Auron: “I told you, let me handle their kind.”
    In FFVII the player was able to fly around with the airship, in FFX he can not. Looks like things have evolved? ;)
    “Have you found a way to defeat Sin yet?” When the player chooses “Not yet.” he gets the same question asked again. Clearly unfinished content.
