"The Zelda of Playstation!"
This is my first review so go a little easy on it!
Story - 10/10
The story was amazing to say the least. It had so many different elements into it besides just the pursuit of the monster Sin. There were many emotional turns which keeps the player deeply intrigued through the whole entire game. Tidus, the main character, brings out his story and follows Yuna, the daughter of Braska who brought down Sin once before, and really creates a story that is worth recognition. The story does not get bored and will keep the gamer playing and unable to put the controller down. Another great part about the story is all of the playable characters that come along. All of these characters have their own story that ultimately contributes to the over all grand story. The story gets an A++
Gameplay - 10/10
This Final Fantasy brought out a turn based battle system, a brand new leveling up system, and many many sidequests that kept the game interesting from the time You put the disk in, to 200 hours later! The turn based battling system allows the player to be able to plan their strategy with every turn. There are many different abilities and spells that each person can learn and then they put them into effect in battle. The sphere grid is the new way to level up and is different than anything before. The player can choose the way that each character gains new abilities. You earn ability points in battle and use these points to make moves on the Sphere grid to improve your characters. This grid is gigantic and takes forever to fill. Some sidequests include obtaining each characters' ultimate weapons and obtaining special aeons that require extra quests. Overall the gameplay is nothing short of epic. Everything about the gameplay is just jaw dropping!
Visuals - 10/10
This game is very colorful and vibrant! The cut scenes really bring out what the Playstation 2 is capable of. This game could have easily been turned into an Imax movie! The unique land scape that is put into this game is truly very vibrant. It is mesmerizing at every location. Very much detail is put into each one of the different areas throughout this game. The scenery is truly amazing, for example the Calm lands. The visuals are a very promising aspect throughout this game.
This game is perfect in every way! It throws in different twists that have not been seen before in any RPG. Final Fantasy X will b a game that will be remembered for quite some time. This game is the Zelda of the Playstation era. This game is a must get for any RPG lover, and for also gamers new to the genre of games. This game is truly different and has been proven to be one of the very best games of all time!
