Final Fantasy X
One of the best Final Fantasy games on the market
Final Fantasy X. If you have ever played a Final Fantasy game before, you probably won't be disappointed in this game. The graphics, the audio, gameplay, storyline - All good. First off, let me discuss the graphics. It has beautiful special effects. One which I really thought was well done, was how explosions looked in CGI. And of course, this being the first Final Fantasy game to be produced for the Playstation 2 entertainment system, Square-Soft had put in their efforts to make it 1 step ahead of their previous games. No, let me rephrase : 2 steps ahead. The graphics truely thrust you into the game. The storyline now, was pretty good. The storyline of FFX is very, sad in a way, and if you were put into the postition the main character Tidus was put into, you probably would do a common thing; run. The interface was well done. It didn't get in the way of gameplay at all, which most games do; making them slightly more difficult. In my opinion, this has to be one of the greatest Role Playing games on earth, and it should easily be recreated on the PSP or PS3.
A big step for Square Enix
This was Square Enix's first Final Fantasy game on the PS2, a big step from their midi-based, low-res PlayStation entries. After this, the quality of the games had started declining, so I think it's safe to say they've outdone theirselves with this entry. The story is about young rising star Tidus who is thrown into an unfamiliar world where nobody believes him when he tells his story. He becomes a Guardian for a summoner on her pilgrimage and seeks answers while doing so. The gameplay is much like the earlier titles, turn-based. It requires a certain amount of strategy to win most battles, such as finding an enemy's weakness and using that certain element. There are different sorts of classes in the game like before, but they're not limited to certain characters. For example, Tidus, who specializes in quick attacks and speed, can learn black magic if he goes a certain direction on the sphere grid. However, doing so earlier in the game may make the game more challenging. The sphere grid is this game's form of stat boosting or leveling up. You gain sphere nodes after battles, which you can apply to characters on their sphere grids. When a character levels up, they gain one Sphere level, which is used to move them in the sphere grid. It costs less sphere levels to move backwards or through an area you already moved through, but costs 1 level each movement forward. You need Ability spheres to learn abilities, Power spheres boost your strength, etc. This game is a must-buy if you're an RPG fan, as this is Square's best entry into the series on a PS2 console. The graphics are great for a game on the PS2, the characters are voiced, and they actually have facial expressions. There is an HD collection coming out pretty soon, so if you're going to get this game, it might be worth it to wait. The collection will have the International version of the game, which has quite a few superbosses. When you beat those, there's another one that you need near-max stats to beat. There are also many weapons, armors and abilities the International version has over this version. The collection will come bundled with the International version of Final Fantasy X-2, the less-appreciated sequel to this game. But if you can't wait, pick it up now.
it was fun
It was a fun game. It's entertaining and hard at the same time. It has a lot of challenge and it also required us to use our brain. It's challenging. I would definitely recommend this game to my friends.
MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE GAME!!!!!!!!!!
The first time I played this game, I was instantly blown away! The graphics where AMAZING (for its time), the story was compelling and emotional, the game play was EPIC, and THIS GAME NEVER GETS OLD! Seriously, the last time I checked I had over 140 HOURS on my profile! This game has cool characters, an AWESOME and unique way to build up, a BUT-LOAD of secret stuff, and a PERDIGOUS story. That's why Final Fantasy X, is my favorite game!
I love this game. I still consider this my favorite game. If you have ever consider buying this, do it. you won't be disappointed!
It's that good
I just loved this game, this is the best game I have ever played, it's history is fantastic, all of the music are very good too! This type of battle is my favorite, the graphics were good but not so, it was a good ps2 graphic. Finally I cannot stop playing this game. Unfortunately I bought Final Fantasy XIII that has disappointed me, I wait to square make another game with the same gameplay as this one.
One of the best of all time
I picked this game up not long after it came out. I had played ff 7 and ff 8 plus the origins(1+2). I had fallen in love with the series and i was only 8. I was super excited for ff 10 when it came out. Let me just say that ive played many a game and none took my hours away like this one. I have logged years of my life on super mario 64 and the zelda series, but no other game has took my heart like this game. There are no flaws in it. It is and always will be the only perfect game ever made. The game play the music the story it is all a masterpiece. I would give up my entire life to be able to play blitzball in real life. We use to imagine we were playing it as kids. Its not uncommon to log 200 hours on this game. Any rating that isnt a 9+ is just a joke from someone who cant appreciate the masterpiece that is ff10
Best FF of all time
Final Fantasy X is the only FF game i have ever liked. Lots to do and still my favorite PS2 game of all time. It has one of the best mini games ever called blitzball... Blitzball is like Water Polo and Soccer mixed and it is played entirely under water. If you still own a PS2 and havent played this yet then i dont see why you wouldnt buy it.
By FAR the best of the series
This is seriously the only Final Fantasy game I would ever suggest playing (other than the NES/SNES ones). I don't have much more to say than that.
It's cool, if you like this kinda thing
Lots of talking, walking, swords and people with giant pointy hair and glazed over eyes. I'd prefer first person shooters because I have the attention span of a gnat.
