The Game is very linear, there doesn't exist an overworld map where you can travel Like in the FF Games before, but you would be Missing one of the best FF Stories ever made



Around the Network

FFX was the last good Final Fantasy game.

To me of course. Every single one since then has been crap to me. Crystal Chronicals, FFXI, XII(especially), XIII, XIV, XV. ALL stink!

I even bought XII at full price when it came out, because it was getting good reviews and I had loved all FFs up to X. It was the biggest regret of my life.

It took money, and time away from me that I'll never regain. I'd like to shoot Square Enix for it, to be quite honest. Lot's of bitterness around that. And I'm never buying an FF game again without trying it first.

NEVER.

When one person tells you it's boring and another tells you it's not...

It's a Final Fantasy game, all FF experiences are new ones and no matter what, the quality of the game in general is always outstanding. Just give it a go!

I hear ya .. FF is one divisive franchise for sure. I know i should definitely give it a go i would love to play all of FF games in time or at least try them out but i wanted to hear some opinions here first and it seems like that FFX is one of the most loved FF games out there.

It's amazing how divisive those opinions get. People telling you they hated X and loved XII, or 7 vs. IX... crazy. Your biggest obstacle might be going back to the single digit FF's. X and XII are still doable when it comes to graphics and gameplay but the earlier games are a whole different ballgame. That's going back to the PS1 era. 

Personally I loved VI trough X, they all had their strengths and weaknesses but I played them in order (except for VI) in a different time. With XII, I was a little put off by the story and battlesystem at the time but had a blast re-playing it this year and getting the plat.

X has an amazing soundtrack, an interesting battlesystem (play on Active time battle) and a great story, of course this is just one opinion of many. I have played through the game 4 times and am considering a 5th, my most played FF to date. Whatever you decide, have fun!

It did.

It's available on pretty much all current systems.

Oh that's right i forgot ! wth is wrong with me, i think i wanted to say if it ever get's a physical release since i'm not a fan of digital but that's not happening. I have to check this one out and look at some gameplay vids.

Have you also not played FFIX?

It's amazing, a masterpiece like XII but in a completely different style.

FFIX is full old classic JRPG style done perfectly.

Forget X, get IX.

Yeah i'm not sure about those single digit FF's i only have FFIII/VI on SNES mini and that will probaly be the only one i will finish from those really old ones. 

And thanks ! hopefully i will have a fun time with X and XII.. first those two.

It's really interesting how different of an experience people have with FF games.

I just couldn't stop playing FF XII, I would for pull all nighters one after the other to just keep playing it more and more.

What you regret playing I regret having to stop playing xD



Having already been a huge FF fan by the time X released, my impressions of the game were pretty good. I remember being astounded by the amount of voice acting in the game. For me, at least, it was maybe the first full JRPG I played that was almost entirely voice-acted.

From a technical standpoint, the game/engine is quite a mess, but the story-telling is top-notch, especially for it's time.

Character progression is unique in that instead of gaining levels in the traditional sense, you'll gain "sphere levels", similar to the system in FF13. Most modern RPGs are a push-over, but this one is has a decent amount of difficulty, such that you can't faceroll through the game, and you'll need to pay attention to your gear and character builds.

It's fun and cheap; I recommend it.

Nope haven't played it but i plan to one day.. it's just a little tricky with that one cause the remaster isn't so hot,that's how i heard at least. Blurry backgrounds, only available digitally is kinda a turn off and i know there are mods on Pc but since i don't play on Pc and don't buy games there it's not gonna feel authentic to me.



I mean, Final Fantasy X is my favourite game of all time and I don't see that changing anytime soon, as of right now I've played the game to completion close to twenty times. I love so much about it, from the soundtrack which I personally consider the best in the series, even the remastered songs are really great too, although for a first time play I'd highly recommend listening to the original sountrack. I feel the story has so much emotional weight behind it, and I'm always excited to know/play what happens next even though I've played it so many times... sure, there's a scene that people always seem to berate, but honestly, if you actually understand the scene and don't just judge it based on the awkward laugh, it's actually fine lol. It also has some of the best character arcs in the series, one of which is my personal favourite since it's very relatable for me, won't go into spoilers though. I'd go into the battle system but it seems people have already mentioned that lol, and despite the game being linear (It sort of has to be considering how story driven it is) there's still a ton of extra content to do, and it does eventually open up and allow you to travel around, including to some hidden locations (although all this is done through a menu on a map, there's no free roam open world)

Basically I could just go on forever and ever as to why you should experience what I consider the greatest game ever made, or I could just say; Give it a try, it's worth it!

Play it even if you have to get a PS1 and an original copy.

It'll be worthy every penny you spend on it.

The game looks great to me, are you not used to old games?
