FINAL FANTASY X/X 2 HD Remaster celebrates two of the most cherished and beloved entries to the world renowned franchise that has sold over 100 million units over the past twenty five years. FINAL FANTASY X introduced players to the world of Spira, and left a legendary impression on the industry with its stunning visuals, heart wrenching story, and fully voiced characters – a first in a FINAL FANTASY title. FINAL FANTASY X 2 marked the first ever direct sequel to a FINAL FANTASY title, and returned players to Spira with an even more addictive and fast paced combat system. Now completely remastered in gorgeous HD, FINAL FANTASY X/X 2 HD Remaster brings this timeless classic forward to the current generation of fans, old and new alike. FINAL FANTASY X tells the story of Tidus, a star blitzball player who journeys with a young and beautiful summoner named Yuna on her quest to save the world of Spira from an endless cycle of destruction wrought by the colossal menace known as "Sin". FINAL FANTASY X 2 returns to the world of Spira where High Summoner Yuna travels with her companions Rikku and Paine to unravel the mysteries of the messages hidden in the spheres she hunts, not knowing that the answers she seeks may change everything.

IS THIS GAME WORTH IT?
Considering that both Final Fantasy X and X-2 are available for the PS2, and many avid RPG fans already have this staple classic, it may seem redundant to pick up this title. However, nothing really compares with the sweet feeling of nostalgia from playing a classic with a brand new coat of graphics on. Plus, if you never found a chance to play the International versions, this is the first opportunity to experience the new content.
For newcomers to the series (or even to RPGs in general), this is a great way to step into the Final Fantasy world. The battle system is simple enough to learn quickly, while deep enough to never grow bored of the expansive sphere grid system. The graphics are beautiful and interesting, and are accompanied by an equally beautiful audio track. Tidus, Yuna, and the rest of the cast are unforgettably unique and bring you with on one of the most exciting journeys available in the gaming world!
Whether you're a veteran of the Final Fantasy games or new to the series, the Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster for the PS3 and the PS Vita is a great experience for anyone who enjoys a great RPG.
X has, in my opinion, a beautifully crafted story in an interesting, if a little confusing, fantasy world. The political and religious aspects of the game might be a little tough for some, as Square Enix doesn't have any problem taking shots about blind faith and religion is a central point of the game. Heck, the biggest monster around is literally named Sin. The combat mechanics are exclusively turn based, meaning you can spend all night planning your next move if you're careful, and sometimes it does take a good amount of though to get it right. The special ability system (Overdrives) do have some time-based mini game-like aspects, but they're generally easy to learn and don't get too complex. Leveling up is also as simple or as complex as you want it to be, with generally defined paths for each character but various junctions available to deviate into someone else's path. It looks hard but it's very easy to learn. This remaster is also based on the international version of the game, meaning all the content (the second level up grid, dark aeons, etc) are open.
X-2 is an immediate squeal and pretty bland story wise. You pick up some short time after and seem to have forgotten all you abilities and how a lot of the world works is completely changed. A job based system replaces the grid and you switch between jobs during battle (similar to Paradigm Shifting in FF13 but with much, much more to customize). There's not a whole lot to say actually. Yuna (the player's character of X-2 and secondary main character of X) is robbed of her agency as a person and more or less functions only in the context of Tidus (the player's character of X) and the rest of the girl squad mostly exists to help Yuna for reasons this and that reason. One silly thing that I love however is the shout-outs to X, specifically Yuna and Rikku (the other playable character from X who returns) will use specific items from X, some their own, some others. It's a nice touch to say "Hey, we didn't just throw their stuff out!"
This is not a remake. From what I can tell, a select few character models (commonly used ones like the main party and our old friend S.) have been updated to much higher quality, and their textures along with it, but most of the characters have not been changed which makes for some awkward scenes between somewhat realistic people and box people composed of a third the geometry or less, but for the most part it's not too noticeable. Close ups of non-remade characters aren't the norm. The audio is great, with rerecorded versions of the battle theme and others, while keeping some of the old sounds for things like menu selection and what not. It's a little jarring if, like me, you have the originals memorized, but the updates are very well done.
The only, ONLY reason this doesn't have five stars is that I would have liked if they updated more of the characters, textures, and animations. At times if feels like a port and FFX was notorious for the bad lip-sync to the audio, by which I mean complete lack of. The mouths were not updated to move to the English dialog, so any time you look at someone's mouth while they speak you feel like you're watching a dub, because you basically are. Frequently someone's feet will hover above the ground, particularly on slanted terrain. That said, these games, particularly X, will always hold a special place in my heart. Anyone who liked the originals will love playing again on a modern console, and having both together is nice, especially for us Americans who never got to fight the Dark Aeons! Now if you'll excuse me, I have some Sigils to collect...

Also, a retake on the OST.
Same PS2 masterpiece, only enhanced by a few aspects.
