For my son's eighth birthday I purchased this game as he was getting to the point where the children smash and grab styled games were becoming boring and monotonous. He was looking for something that was a bit more challenging and I knew that the storyline associated with the Final Fantasy games not only would inspire him but also tap into the fantasy & magic genre that he enjoyed so much like.
I did purchase the strategy guide to go with the game and it was great fun playing along with him. I was the navigator (reading through the book) and he was the pilot controlling the characters and exploring the game.
In Final Fantasy X, we were immediately struck at how wonderful the graphics and the music were. The storyline and progress is quite simple to follow but the strategy guide from the web or bookstore is very useful if you want to find hidden items, which could become relevant later in the game.
The story is based around a young lad called Tidus and a magical character called Yuna and her friends or guardians who move through Spira on pilgrimage to defeat the fiend ‘Sin’ who causes destruction in this small world. Their quest brings these strangers together in a journey that will change their lives and the future of Spira forever, bringing the eternal calm after Sin is defeated. As their individual stories unfold you grow to understand their abilities, weaknesses and strengths, their past and what brought them together and what will ultimately be their future.
There are around five puzzle rooms within temples which are quite tricky and on one occasion we needed to consult YouTube as we couldn't visualise it clearly. Luckily there is tons of material online to help if you do get stuck. Otherwise, I would say gameplay was relatively straightforward and the challenge came in the strategy not the ability. By that I mean it was possible for my son to follow easily and you did not need super PS3 skills or fast fingers to complete the game.
The game also has a number of mini games like catching butterflies, dodging lightning and racing chocobos which are crucial if you want to acquire the optional characters celestial weapons towards the end of the game. You do have an opportunity to go back and play them at any time once you have your airship so there's no need to hold progress in the story. We did struggle here and whilst we got 4 of the 7 weapons we crafted our own version of the rest using items we had collected. They were identical and we thought that was pretty cool. My son laughed that Mum had crafted fake ‘knock-off’ weapons in his game!
During the fiend encounters characters build experience points, which enable you to move through a grid like system to advance the characters abilities and skills. Skipping these battles will only give you problems further down the line so take on every challenge and throw in a few extra as well because the more experience went to have the easier it is towards the end of the game.
The Sphere Grid used to advance characters skills is pretty simple once you get the hang of it and it's very hard to go the wrong way so characters can progress within their own area easily.
The story is wonderful. We really became involved in each characters tale and shared the joys, triumphs and tears. We certainly finish the game feeling as though we have been on an epic journey ourselves through Spira. It took us around six weeks to finish the game playing 120 hours. Towards the end we felt quite addicted and the story compelled us to explore more areas, take on more side challenges and develop our characters so we could fight the final bosses.
We have thoroughly enjoyed playing this game together and I would certainly recommend it to anybody. We particularly liked the fact that turn-based combat system allowed us to look up fiends in our strategy guide to establish what their HP and elemental weaknesses were before we took on the challenge. This also helped to feel a little bit more in control of the combat system and it felt non-aggressive and non-urgent. It was more about thought, planning and strategy than bash and crash.
We started Final Fantasy X-2 the very next day and found the transition between the two games quite difficult. X-2 has changed the game mode & play, although we were pleased to see on the configuration menu you could reinstate the turn based battle system to an extent. FFX’s grid system has been replaced by uniforms and when the character is wearing the clothes of a pop star she uses dance moves in combat. When she is wearing warriors close her actions are of a warrier. We've only really just started playing and things are starting to come together already and we are confident that we're going to enjoy this story just as much as the last. In fact because FFX ended on such a cliffhanger, it feels as though a continuation of the same game. Most of the maps, items, potions and some of the characters are the same and the story refers back to the first game for continuity. It does however provide new challenges, experiences and issues to overcome.
I only hope that the publishers and game makers will consider releasing other fantastic Final Fantasy stories (FF VIII!!!) on PS3 and PS4 because playing the game again has not only reawakened a fond memory in my heart but also brought it to the next generation and seeing my son enjoy it so much has been wonderful.
I hope you do buy and enjoy this game as much as we did...
I never actually played X-2 so am looking forward to that after FFX, so my review is only based on the 1st game. I am aware of a lot of negative feedback on X-2 but I believe in judging something I've tried myself. I'm now crossing my fingers they will do a re-mastered version of FFXII as for me that was the last great FF game, FFXIII in my opinion was mediocre at best.
After playing FFXIII I was glad to get back to a more open worldy game, not as much as the originals but enough to get that nostalgic FF feeling that 13 had been missing. Some of the mini-games are a little frustrating, I honestly don't understand the need to make dodging 200 lightning strikes a pre-requisite to getting the ultimate weapons.
The story is quite nice. This is probably the first time a main character has annoyed me a little, but you do eventually get over that. As with most FF story lines the ending doesn't really pay off and after completing it I did find myself thinking "Oh, is that it?". But with most games I enjoyed the journey to the end much more than the ending itself (Mass Effect 3 was an amazing game, bad ending or not). I have yet to played X-2 but I will update this as soon as I'm done!
