I have FFX, and here's what I think about the game. Overall, its a great game. It has cool CG cinematics, fairly good voice acting, and decent graphics (for the time). More importantly, its very fun to play. However, it does have its faults...Most noticeably, the time commitment. This isn't really a fault, just be prepared to put at least 50+ hours into it, because its a HUGE game. The cutscenes are plentiful, but extremely badly done (and eye-bleedingly painful to watch), and you cannot skip them, giving the game very little replay value. Some parts of the game are confusing, with unclear directives, and other parts are so insanely difficult it is frusturating. But all in all, faults aside, its really a very good game. However I'd recommend FFX-2, as its gotten much better ratings and I've heard better things about it, but don't get it if you're a fan of the FF mold.

Yeah... like when I killed the last boss in 3 hits... omg...
I liked the game, but it was more of a movie then a game with all the cutscenes... I think there were 51 cutscenes and a lot more.... in game... type scene things.
EDIT: Thinking back a bit more... *spoilers?* yunalesca was pretty hard... unless you had holy which you probably don't by that time...
Heh, I liked how by the end I was doing 99,999 with quick hits with tidus. (Tidus: Quick hit, normal hit, 99,999 each. Yuna: Double cast holy for 99,999 a pop. Auron: Normal hit 99,999 = dead enemy)

My 8 year old brother beat the game
If your thinking about buying the game, its only 20 bucks now if i remeber correctly. Just pick it up or put it on your christmas list

The game was awesome, but I found it too easy. The only hard bosses were Yunalesca, that stupid dragon thing that kept on healing himself, and maybe Jecht; hard meaning it took me twice to beat them. It was so easy, wasn't very challenging (unless you count in the Ultimate Weapons thing and that stupid Chocobo race), meh, I dunno. The only reason I'm playing it again is for the al bhed language thing and to finally figure out wth they're saying.
EDIT: But if you like awesome graphics and cool music and LOVE Final Fantasy; it's worth getting. Especially if you want to get X-2.

How well of a game? wtf...heheh
I thought it was enjoyable. Worth $20 imo.

FFX and FFX-2 suck.
Moogy always has the most descriptive comments.
Well, what do you want me to do? Type up a giant report on why they suck? Oh wait, you probably do want me to. :P
Well, I don't, so I'll just leave it at they suck, ok?

This game is good, but its long, and all u have to do is get anima and magus sisters and u can beat anything, the aeons are just to strong, but overall its a fun game

The game ruled. End of story.
01-23-2004, 06:35 PM
Wow...you sure brought up an old topic. Well FFX was ok, but I liked FFX-2 more, mainly because of the dress spheres.
01-23-2004, 09:49 PM
And because FFX-2 was simply a better game, albeit totally breaking out of the FF mold.
01-24-2004, 12:32 PM
I thought double cast only worked with black magic... dunno been a long time since I've played it... :p
FFX-2 is awesome. I dunno, people looking for a "serious" RPG probably won't like it, but the story aside, the game mechanics are well done and it's nice to have an RPG that actually takes SKILL for a change.

I've heard the leveling up system in FFX is shit.
01-25-2004, 01:45 PM
The Sphere Grid (leveling up) system is really a unique one, and when manipulated right makes maxing out stats the easiest of all the final fantasies I've played so far...Anyway the game was way too easy. I mean all the forms (3) of the lass bosses combined is about 280,000 hp, while the actual hardest optional boss has 12 MILLION HP (not an exaggeration)..but it's still easy since if you know the game well enough you'll know how you can potentially deal up to 1,499,985 damage a turn from one attack...and attack about 20 times or more before the enemy can strike once.. ^_^.
Also, the sidequests were too few and virtually all of them except for blitzball and the Al Bhed Primer collecting are impossible to access until the near end of the game..
On the bright side, the graphics are amazing and the voice acting is really good (except when Tidus cried...man i HATED THAT) and the story is really one of the best I've seen for a Final Fantasy...since it's so cheap these days you should buy iti f you're into RPGs.

FF8 is and always will be the easiest FF game to max your stats out in. Levelling 3 characters to 100 was cake to do in like, 2 hours (probably less if you're any good at the game) and it's pretty simple to get 100 ultimas to max out your str, max hp was EASY, etc etc... I don't remember if you could max EVERY stat out completely, but those that you couldn't max, you could get very high.
Oh yes, and lets not forget zell's 100k damage limit break (kills the hardest enemy in the game in one attack. pretty cheesy.)

I agree, the game is rather easy. I only just started playing it, but I am totally hooked. Seriously, it is pretty much all I have been doing for the past few days. So far, it has been an extremely awesome game.
And not all the cut scenes are bad. It does have a few extremely smooth and very colorful cut scenes. And the levels are beautiful. I would definetly buy it. I mean, it is 20 bucks. I am barrowing my friends at the moment, but I might buy it anyways. (and it doesnt hurt that the Female characters are rather...uh...hot).
Unless the game takes a total turn for the worst (ex. FFVII: Cloud being a dumbass and forgetting who he is, which I hated and thus a major reason as to why I have yet to beat it in 3 years.) I might consider it one of my top ten favorite games.
The only thing that I dont like is the voice acting. I cant stand it. And I wish there was a way I could turn on the Japanese voices.
And the sphere grid system is awesome. I like how it lets you decide how you want to level-up your character.
01-26-2004, 12:29 AM
Yeah, it never gets suddenly worse like in FFV11 or a few of the other FFs... although the last boss is pathetic (one or two attacks should).
I liked the game... just all the cut scenes don't make for much replay value... still a good game.

Game is pathetically easy on all levels. I got stuck on Seymour in the Gagazet Mountains so I stopped playing for like, two months, then I tried again and got him on my first try, go figure. I didn't even have Holy or Flare or any of that fancy shit and I beat Yu Yevon and Jecht with ease. Lady Yunalesca was once again, easy, just have massive amounts of Holy Waters, then if you're not completely fucking retarded you can win.
Good graphics, the blitzball movie at the very beginning's my favourite. In some movie's Tidus looked kinda different to me then in others for some reason though.
The storyline wasn't exactly the best, but it was pretty good. One of the things that pissed me off the most was that you couldn't control the airship like you could in all the other FF's, and you only get it near the very end, like in FF8 and 9.
(and it doesnt hurt that the Female characters are rather...uh...hot).
while the actual hardest optional boss has 12 MILLION HP
Who was that?
03-17-2004, 07:33 PM
No matter WHAT they say, I prefer *booming voice* Final... Fantasy... VII over all, it's the best, simple as that, I can't wait for Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children to come out.
