Final Fantasy X is an iconic game from the Final Fantasy series, and was notable for being the first PS2 Final Fantasy, showing off the console's graphical power. The Remaster edition polishes this style with some minor changes, though some of these cause arguments among close fans of the game (for example, Yuna's facial structure was changed quite significantly, much to the chagrin of quite a few fans). FFX is known among fans of the series for introducing the "Sphere Grid" system, a levelling-up mechanic in which characters earn "Sphere Points" instead of levels, and can spend them to move around a huge grid of nodes and purchase nodes they come into contact with to increase stats and learn abilities. This both allows freedom of movement, allowing you to move a character into a path they would not otherwise take, but also unlocks the game's challenge potential. For example, in the PS2 era many challenges were developed, from the relatively straightforward NSG challenges (No Sphere-Grid) to the far more complex NSGNSNINONCNBB (No Sphere Grid, No Summons, No Items, No Overdrives, No Customisation, No Blitzball). This ensures the game still has a large following even nearly two decades after release. The sequel, FFX-2, is a completely different style of game. I did not enjoy this game so much personally, but many do. It's in-depth, has an interesting story, and an interesting "Job" system.
In the old days, everything was better. You can hear this sentence at least once, when the Final Fantasy series is discussed. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. In any case, PC players finally got one of the finest Final Fantasy's in their clutches. This is the last one that was released under the flag of Squaresoft before Square Enix emerged. So what should people who are not yet familiar with this type of game expect? Is FFX and its successors better or at least as good as its predecessors? Final Fantasy X tells the story of the young professional Blitzball player Tidus, who lives in the city of Zarnakand, a futuristic city built on the sea and stuffed with technology. During a giant monster attack, our protagonist is sucked through a weird vortex and loses conciousnes, When he comes to, apparently 1000 years have passed, furthermore all that technology (called machina) he was used to no longer exists and is even forbidden. His confusion to this is easy to understand, and we just like him will need time to accomodate to this new, alien world. There are many diverse characters and locations, each with their own traits and particularities, so of course there's a lot of dialogue too. All of the FMV cutscenes are unskippable, so upon repeat playthroughs this can prove to be frustrating. Particularly annoying is when one fails at beating a boss preceeded by such a cutscene, having to watch it all over again. I would like to praise the Autosave system. One is no longer required to only do manual saves as was previously the case. The battles are played in separate screens, as in the predecessors, but there is no longer an active timebar that allows attacks as soon as it is full (ATB system), but it is completely round-battled, ie the game calculates when your party attacks and when the monsters do based on certain stats, like speed. This combat system fits very well to the game, however, the game is by and large relatively easy because one has never felt the under time pressure to make important decisions. To be noted though that the successor (FFX-2) again returns to the classic style of fighting. In contrast to the original version of the PS2 version, we have can thank providence for the fact that the international version of the game is automatically included. This has extended to Final Fantasy X-2 as well, plus we now have The 'Last Mission', as well as some new cutscenes, which were not available in the original version. Furthermore, there are some new features. For example the faces of the characters were reworked, as well as the soundtrack. Also the interface was adjusted in time and yes, there is even an X-Box controller option. The graphics have been yet again enhanced compared to the PS4 version. Unfortunately, there is still still a 30 frames lock in place. With great characters, a great story and great environments, plus the added contents of the international edition do their other thing to offer even some original players on the PS2 some fresh content. So who is the fan of the series and will definetly get their money's worth. Just the introductory price of just 20 pounds is totally in order, since you're getting two full games here. The successor of X is not nearly as good as the predecessor and almost borders on ridiculous sexism, or the degradation of women into sex objects, but this does not change the fact that the game is among the best in the series gameplay wise. And even including a New Game + mode! A definite buy.
What can I do for you? When hearing the words Final Fantasy 10, those words are the first thing that comes to mind as they are from the sequel called Final Fantasy 10-2, which both are included here. Despite being older games, this remaster adds new life to the old bringing Yuna's concert to full HD which is really fun to watch. It is probably one of the most memorable video game songs along with 'Simple and Clean.' No matter how good the song is, it doesn't make the game, though there is no worries there. In full Final Fantasy fashion, this game has a lot of great story behind it with great graphics and easy to get into gameplay. No matter which game you are playing in this bundle, you are in for a treat from one of the best Final Fantasy games to date.
So what we have here, a masterpiece and a quick cash grab. Final Fantasy X is simply amazing, it offers one of the best stories so far with an amazing soundtrack as well the enhances the mood presented in the game. Apart from that we have one of the best mini-game ever namely Blitzball that can simply be a separate game. On the other hand, FFX-2 is simply quick attempt to get some more cash out of FF fans. The game is just uninspired, it's not horrible by any means, it's just boring. Though it's still worth buying this pack just for FFX!
Square-Enix's masterpiece with charismatic characters, perfect battle system and fascinating story.
