    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.

The story, soundtrack and turned based combat all combine into what is probably the best final fantasy game in the series. One of the few games that I own that I could see myself coming back to play every now and then. I can honestly say there isn't anything I would change about it.

    X-2 is also a fun game not up to the standards of X but enjoyable none the less. The story is significantly more light hearted which is why a lot of people shun it, but it probably has the best combat system of any final fantasy game that I have played.

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

    I already played International versions of both games on PS2 and the only new thing in this version for me is compilation of the whole storyI already played International versions of both games on PS2 and the only new thing in this version for me is compilation of the whole story of Final Fantasy X. Two additional stories, Eternal Calm and Will, helps you to better understand the whole story of this game, and also suggests that they might plan to make a new Final Fantasy X (there are already rumors about Final Fantasy X-3).

    Both games have interesting stories and a gameplay. The design of the world and the characters is very good, but when I saw a early concept designs, I have to say I like the original design rather than the final design.

    Battle system of Final Fantasy X is very good because they have improved the traditional Turn-based battle system adding new functions such as the swapping system which allows the player to replace the characters in active party with a characters outside the active party. This new system, Conditional Turn-Based Battle does not operate in rounds, instead it uses an Act List that is affected through various means and thus does not guarantee that each participant in a battle will have an equal number of turns. Also the battle system in Final Fantasy X-2 is very good because it's an improved version of the traditional ATB system. This new ATB system in Final Fantasy X-2 is much faster and more active than older versions. Also contains a new function which allows the player to replace the class (job) of characters. I like both battle systems and sadly they did not use one of these battle systems in the new Final Fantasy games.

    I do not like the development of characters in Final Fantasy X. The Sphere Grid is a good idea, but it would be even better if each character have its own Sphere Grid which does not overlap with the other. If each character had their own Sphere Grid, then each character would have their own abilities and balance of battle stats of each character would have meaning. The Sphere Grid which is In Final Fantasy X does not show the difference between the characters because eventually all the characters have the same abilities and all battle stats are 255. This Sphere Grid gives you freedom to customize the characters, but I didn't see anyone to do it. In the end each player trains his characters to learn all the abilities and to have all battle stats to 255. It would be good if they changed the Sphere Grid in remastered version in the way I described, then the development of the characters would be much better and this would also have an impact on the battle system itself, it would only make it better. Development of characters in Final Fantasy X-2 is much better because of the Job system. Using the Job system, each character has its own abilities which means that no character is the same. A function that allows replacement of job during the battle gives a tactical aspect in battle. This means the player can choose a job for the character he is currently need in the battle. That means the player can create his own tactics in the battle by using that function and the Job system.

    So, the only improvement in the remastered version is the improvement of maps and character models and textures, as well the improvement of lighting, shadowing and enhanced pre-rendered movies with better quality in high definition, and also improvement of voice audio. Everything else is the same as in the International versions for PS2.

    Conclusion: The remastered version is the revival of the old classics. Both games are very good JRPGs and I hope the rumors are accurate about Final Fantasy X-3. If they combine certain elements from Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, especially if they combine certain elements of character development and battle system from both games, they can make a very good Final Fantasy X-3.

    This is a tough one: Final Fantasy X is a tremendous game with an emotionally challenging story line that has implications far greater thanThis is a tough one: Final Fantasy X is a tremendous game with an emotionally challenging story line that has implications far greater than its childlike, fantasy-based universe would lead you to believe. I recall playing it as a kid in what I thought was its target age group of 10-12, but playing it as an adult was far more interesting. You definitely have to like the turn-based type combat and be willing to grind; there are no shortcuts in this game. Frequent saving and dedication to killing hordes of common enemies are required to succeed. The story tackles very adult issues like challenging your faith, suspecting an administration of victimizing its constituents, confronting your parents and losing your loved ones.

    On the other hand, Final Fantasy X-2 is one of the games I am the most embarrassed to admit to have ever played as an adult man. The mechanics are similar to FFX; they tried to "speed up" the game, which is nice if you know what's going on, but at first it's jarring because it doesn't give you much time to decide on a course of action. That's about it, though - the story is ridiculous and meaningless. Most importantly, however, it genuinely seems like it was designed by either Japanese teenagers or Japanese pedophiles. The game stars three presumably underage girls whose powers are granted them by wearing different clothes, the transitions of which are given an undue amount of attention while playing the game. Set aside the incredibly misogynistic implications of a game whose female cast is portrayed to be obsessed with and dependent upon collecting clothes and looking cute in battle, the game just has no substance - they're supposed to be bounty hunters looking for spheres, which rarely happens in the game. You have an even more ridiculous and provocatively dressed "rival" who never seems to die flanked by two (I assume, as a white person) insultingly stereotypical Chinese bodyguards. It's kind of like someone took the formula from Pokemon Red or Blue and thought, "let's see how many Western-looking teenage girls in short skirts with big boobs we can jam in here."

    So in my mind FFX is like a 9.5, but X-2 is like a 6. The combat in X-2 is admittedly pretty fun once you figure out how to play, but it still shames me to own it.

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.
