I played the original on the Wii a number of years ago and I'm finally about to finish X (currently on the final boss). I can say with full confidence that the original is the superior game. Not a huge fan of how X likes to gate your progress and force you to complete side quests or grind. Not to mention the music is pretty insufferable.

Looking forward to playing 2 and 3 soon.

Yup, the music in X is very hit and miss. The themes for the regions are great, but any tracks with vocals in them can be grating, especially because they are played often, such as in New L.A. or some of the battle music. Even the people who prefer X over any of the other games should be able to admit that X has the worst soundtrack.

I played X at the same time as Rol and like him I also  recall the regional themes being good, but my recollection of the rest of the music consists of vague thoughts where generic and repetitious tend to spring to mind.

For the bonus question, yes I would like an X2 but I'm not going to hold my breath that we'll return to the planet of psychopaths again.

An aside, this thread reminded me of the enjoyment I got from the X thread that was running on here at the same time that a lot of us were playing X, being involved in that thread and the sharing of thoughts and ideas as we made our way through the game, made it feel like it was an extra part of the game play, it's a pity those type of threads seem to be rarer now.
