*Quick reviews for Final Fantasy X and X-2*
Depending on who you ask, FFX is either the last great *traditional* single-player FF game, or the beginning of the end of the series. For my money, FFX is a classic. At the time of its release, the whole gaming community was caught up in its beautiful world and interesting characters. Thematically, FFX is a magical game, filled with beautiful locales and heaps of mystery. There's also a great deal of deep philosophical musings on all sorts of things ranging from religion to dreams to the very nature of existence. MOST of the characters are also likable. Auron is a real contender for coolest FF character ever. The visuals were seriously incredible back in the day, and its art design is still wonderful (this world really benefits from being in HD now), and the music is among Nobuo Uematsu's very best works, and that's saying A LOT. Mechanically, FFX was a pretty great JRPG. There were plenty of things to do, and almost all of them engaging. The battle system is incredibly deep, strategic, and rewarding to master. There's even an interesting, huge meta-game that incorporates the in-universe sport, Blitzball, with JRPG mechanics that are pretty interesting. Even though I don't think it matches up to its immediate predecessor, the virtually perfect Final Fantasy IX, FFX is still a fantastic classic very much worth playing.
FFX-2 is not quite so beloved as X, generally speaking. At the time of its release, the consensus among the FF community was a lot of confused and pissed off fans. It was the first sequel to any entry in the FF series, and it was such a dramatic departure in pretty much every way from FFX that nobody knew what to make of it. Gone was the sweeping orchestral music, replaced by lots of J-pop. Gone was the feeling of a FF adventure, replaced with an almost Charlie's Angels "BOW, PICHOW, KACHOW, let's strike a cheesy pose for no apparent reason" campy romp sort of way, starring Yuna, Rikku, and newcomer Paine (designed to be a female Squall) on their quest to find Tidus. It has been stated by the developers that it was made to appeal more to the large female demographic of X's fanbase, and I'm not sure if that succeeded. I have to admit, some of the game is so cheesy and embarrassing to be caught playing (The scene where Yuna gives another character a message complete with orgasmic sounds is borderline pornographic, and makes me cringe every time). X-2 IS a strange game, no doubt about it. What most haters of FFX-2 DON'T tell you is that, mechanically, X-2 is pretty awesome. The dressphere battle system is pretty great, utilizing a class-style focus in a very unique way. There's always something engaging to do in X-2, and getting to the mountain of side quests is easy and intuitive. The story also features some genuinely well-written parts as well, despite the overwhelming cheese majority. It's not as great as FFX is, but if you can get used to the strange thematic elements, then you may be surprised just how fun and engaging X-2 is as a JRPG.
*Review of this package as an HD remaster*
Obviously, the biggest change is in the title of the package: HD visuals. How does this collection do in that way? Surprisingly well. Despite the fact that the bones of the package here are from an early PS2 title, the visuals in these games look fantastic. Textures have been cleared up immensely, and the lighting and shadow effects have also received attention and look great. The game is in 16:9 widescreen and it all looks fantastic. Because of the transition to widescreen, the cutscenes and their assets have been remade completely and look gorgeous in HD (although you still can't skip them, which is sure to bother some). Perhaps best of all, almost all of the in-game character models have been remade from the ground-up and look right at home on the PS3 system. Auron has never looked more awesome than here. It may not be as huge of an upgrade as some modern full-on remakes and there are some graphical quirks remaining (i.e. hands going through sleeves, hair clipping into clothes if a character moves their head back, some hilarious lip syncing blunders, etc). Still, considering the fact that most HD collections amount to slapdash up-rezed ports and nothing more, this collection looks great. So bravo to Square-Enix for clearly going the extra mile to refresh this game visually. They did a great job.
From an audio perspective, there have been a few improvements as well. Voices are clearer and sound better (whether the voice acting was great or not in the first place is highly debated by fans). Now all aspects of Tidus and Yuna's imfamous forced laughter scene look and sound clearer than ever. Whether that's a blessing or a curse is up to you, lol. Roughly 60 tracks have also been remastered for this game and they sound better than ever. However, the audio enhancements in this package are clearly not as drastic of an upgrade as the visual elements are. Still, X/X-2 have never looked OR sounded better.
Another huge change from the originals comes in the form of additional content. Back in the day, FFX was rereleased with additional content in Japan. We never got that version in the US. Now we do. In addition to some new optional bosses, FFX also gives you the option to try out a revamp Sphere Grid that allows for more customization and challenge. X-2 has some new dresspheres as well as a "Creature Creator" that allows you to capture and train most enemies, including bosses from BOTH games, to use as party members in future battles. I wouldn't describe any of these additions as paradigm shifting, but they are pretty cool additions and it's nice to know we're getting the most updated, complete version of the games. Add in trophy sets for each game, and you get what is pretty much the definitive release of these games.
The package includes several new additions to the X universe's story. There's Final Fantasy X: Eternal Calm, which is a long epilogue cutscene following the events of FFX. It's not a particularly interesting plot,but it does bridge the gap between X and X-2 stories, and that's nice. There's also Final Fantasy X-2: The Last Mission, which is a short expansion of sorts that takes place three months after X-2's ending. I can't speak as to its quality, but I do know that it does change depending on the events that took place during a players' game of X-2, which is neat. Finally, there's a brand new audio drama set a year after X-2 entitled -Will-. I'm always a little hesitant to buy into these sorts of official/unofficial side stories, as they can be really bad at times, but still, I'll take what I can get. Clearly, the main draw of this package is the core X and X-2 games, but all this content at $40 is pretty cool if you ask me.
So there you have it. Overall, I'm very impressed by the work that went into this collection. It's definitely higher-quality than your average HD port. The visuals and audio have never sounded better in these games, and there's just so much content here on just one blu-ray disc, it's pretty awesome. All of this for $40 seems like a steal to me. If you've never played these JRPG classics before, then now is definitely the time to get into them, as they have never looked/sounded/played better than here. If you're like me and you sunk countless hours into the original all those years ago, I'd definitely recommend picking up this package again. I've been loving diving back into the world of FFX again. The enhancements to this version definitely makes it feel new again. These games, and particularly FFX, hearken back to a time when Final Fantasy games were universally hailed for their immersive worlds, great stories, interesting characters, brilliant music, and engaging JRPG mechanics. Now, they're better than ever. So buy it, prepare for a classic FF experience, and get lost in the magical, lovely world of Spira.
Shipment: The product came on time and in good condition.
Final Fantasy X and X-2 have captivated many people. Last year, they were released as a remaster on PS3 and Vita. This year, they have made their way onto PS4 with a new coat of paint.
Now on PS3, I was excited to jump back into these games and maybe start working on those Platinum trophies again.
So yes, just to get it out of the way: yes the game looks prettier. They’ve spruced up the fields and NPCs, though I think they also now look a bit shinier than before. The loading times are very much fixed, with loading near instant in some places on the digital version. The ability to change to the Original OST on FFX is also fantastic, though I do wish it could’ve just been patched in on PS3 and Vita.
Some issues have cropped up in this version though – and they all seem to be issues relating to FFX. FFX-2 is perfectly fine and is still highly suggested by me to play – the International content really is awesome. So what ARE these issues in FFX?
Issue one: The music doesn’t continue from where it left off when you leave the battle. This is the minor issue, though slightly annoying if you want to hear more than the first little bit of a song if you don’t have No Encounters on. My guess is this has something to do with how the ability to switch to Original OST was added. It’s definitely an issue, no matter how minor it is. EDIT: It has come to my attention that the music issue is ALSO present in FFX-2, which I was not aware of at the original time of review. I have checked and can confirm this to be true. I now have no clue as to why this has happened, though I still have a theory it was to do with them adding the Original OST for FFX back in.
Issue two: The RNG (Random Number Generator) is broken. Yes, you read that right. The RNG in FFX has been broken. It’s not random anymore. You will always have the same events happen every time you load a save. The fourth battle you get? It’s going to be an ambush. Want to farm Dark Aeons by reloading your saves? It’s never going to drop a Ribbon. At least, from my time on Dark Valefor this was true. I saw a lot of Regen armors before I realized what was going on. Stuck on that boss and want to take a break? When you reload it, it’s always going to do the exact same things.
Now, so I don’t turn this review into a 5-page long review, I’ll try and keep it brief. It doesn’t matter what your playtime is. Your stats matter only so much in it determines your turn order, and I’m guessing it will change when your misses will happen. If you have the same stats though, those misses will always happen on the same hits. In fact, it doesn’t even matter if you defend to try and push them.
There is some minor variations that seem to happen when it comes to fights with multiple enemies, but only so much in who they hit. Even then, most of the time it will always be the same battles happening after a reload. The same drops will also happen. It seems you can also minorly influence the turn order by adjusting the order of your party (including reserves). It doesn’t affect drops however.
Luckily, Final Fantasy X-2 remains intact, RNG and all.
This RNG brokenness extends beyond battles, too. While I didn’t go into as much extensive testing, I did look at Blitzball for a bit. Every time I reloaded, something that should NORMALLY randomize if you get a tournament or not… I always got one. It wasn’t just “getting a tournament” either – it was always the SAME TOURNAMENT. No, it wasn’t started, I checked. I had an active league going at the time, but not a tournament.
So my question is: Square Enix, what in the WORLD did you do to break FFX’s RNG on PS4? It works perfectly fine on PS3 and Vita! This RNG issue is a gigantic blow to how playable the PS4 version is. Well, it is playable but not if you want to actually farm drops or do ANYTHING involving RNG. I desperately hope that this will be patched, as I would very much prefer to be able to farm on PS4 because the loading times are SO nice.
As a small note, I also questioned the install of the digital version a bit. It installs it as a “piecemeal” so-to-speak. The last thing it installs? The data transfer. So if you’re like me and want to transfer over your saves from PS3 or Vita, be prepared for a wait.
As it stands now, I give the PS4 version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster a pass. The nice shiny new coat of paint is nice, as are the loading times and the option to change to the Original OST, but the fact the randomness is so broken just kills it.
If you are just looking for FFX-2 and NOT FFX from this release then the PS4 version is fantastic. The only thing I’d nitpick about is the places where broadcast blocking are placed are a bit awkward – namely, why are the loop video and the title screen blocked? Final Fantasy X-2 performs, as far as I can tell, as it did on PS3. It just has that nice shinier coat of paint and MUCH improved loading times. The score below is influenced JUST from of Final Fantasy X. Final Fantasy X-2 alone, as said, is much better – it would be more like a 4.5 if this was FFX-2 alone.
