    The quality of the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on the Switch makes this a definitive way to play with the all-in-one convenience of what the console offers. And regardless of if you jump in now or at a price you like then you’re gonna have an awesome time with these games.

    The touch screen options, the removal of PC's autosave feature and other adjustments, aside from playing it in gorgeous portable mode, make this Nintendo Switch version the best of all that have been released as a Remaster, and the most faithful to play the original versions, even if it had to make some sacrifices in the visual element.

    With two fantastic games in one package, this latest re-release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is very easy to recommend, with a few caveats. On Switch in particular, X-2 benefits from being suited to both long-play sessions on the TV and short bursts in handheld mode. Visually it looks very similar to the PS4 version, which is mostly great news, but it's upsetting to see the developers still haven't fixed character faces going from flat to high quality in cutscenes.

    Well executed conversion of two of the most beloved JRPGs of the PS2-era.

    In a lot of ways, Final Fantasy X-2 could be considered the superior title to Final Fantasy X. The battle system has more variety, the tone is more upbeat and fun, but without the context of the events that occur in the first game, the story just won’t make a lot of sense. I definitely recommend exploring Spira during what should be the eternal calm, but not until after you’ve actually defeated Sin.

    The Switch version is definitely the best way to experience the game right now but it has a few issues that affect the release overall more than the port which is great.

    Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster is still the timeless JRPG we all know and love, but the launch price and the lack of new content makes it hard to recommend this new version over the older ones.

I gave a 10 for the Vita version years ago, and I wish I could award 11/10 here because this version is everything the Vita and PS4 versions are, combined. The last Sakaguchi Final Fantasy and one of the greatest video games of all time. An unquestionable must-have. Expand

The story has a dark, philosophical aspect I really liked, memories, dreams, death, life, friendship, connections,...I feel it's more mature, different compared to many other J-RPG.

    The difficulty of the final boss, whilst not horrible, it's challenging, especially if you are not a perfectionist who will seek the strongest weapons and customizations :).

    FF X-2 HD is, meh, not up to FF-X, story-wise it's really not a good epilogue for me. I feel it was more of an experimental J-RPG targeted at a whole different audience, I think a restricted character pool, an all-female cast was a bold idea and under the right circumstances it can be really a good idea, but the game is a bad execution of that idea. It's more fan service with people revisiting Spira and seeing character X or Y....but with far less depth compared to FF-X HD. FF-X ending set a tone also that I lost here, FF-X is violent, dark, sad,...I think the tone of FF X-2 disrespects FF-X lore and story.

    I also found the game a tad easier. That bold "job" system, back in the time was also quite futuristic and broke the traditional systems.

    I don't know, a J-RPG takes a lot of time to accomplish, maybe if you are a hardcore FF/J-RPG fan, and you have video-game time to spare, give FF X-2 a go, there's still some good ideas here and there, but not FF-X territory.

    I have to say that on rare occasions I had some bugs in FF-X HD that forced me to restart the game...I was stuck in combat with no menu (prize or combat).

    To sum up, considering the current price and the amount of time you will play FF-X alone,...I can only warmly recommend this J-RPG. FF X-2 is not a horrible game, just that it's compared to a masterpiece of PS2 RPGs :).

    Blitzball really sucks. But the game is fine otherwise. I really wish that blitzball wasn't something you had to put up with.

It looks great but the dialogue and overall story is just really bad sometimes and there is no way to skip cutscenes. The leveling up mechanic is super confusing and frustrating and overall I just feel like this is a super overated FF game. I felt the same way when it came out on the ps2 and I feel the same way now.

    The worst ever minigame created in ff series. The minigame is not fun but tortured.

    Poor game, with no gameplay. Random story with random combat and very poor levelup system.
