FINAL FANTASY X features a star Blitzball player named Tidus who, after miraculously surviving the destruction of his homeland, awakens among ruins and thereafter meets a young woman named Yuna. As a summoner, Yuna must travel to distant temples and learn the secret art of summoning aeons-powerful spirits of yore, in order to defeat Sin. Tidus learns that a thousand years in the past, mankind lived in spectacular cities and relied on machines for everything, until Sin suddenly appeared and destroyed all civilization. Now people shun technology, and no one knows when Sin will strike again.

My second favorite Final Fantasy to FF7. Great compelling story that really hits you hard.

I have a few complaints as you can tell, but the good definitely outweighs the bad and this is far and away the most intricate and consistently enjoyable of the Final Fantasy games since the pinnacle of 16-bit RPGs, Final Fantasy VI. The PAL conversion with its enormous borders is a big disappointment, but the strength of the story, the battle system and the combination of clever dialogue, visuals and soundtrack conspire to captivate the player. There are many, many hours of adventuring to be had here, and plenty more mini-games beyond the items mentioned above to enjoy (Chocobos and the Monster Arena, for example). Because it is so enchanting, it's a very hard game to put down for just about anybody, whilst remaining a deceptively complex and enjoyable one for diehards. If you like fantasy, swords, sorcery and love stories then you can't fail to enjoy Final Fantasy X

Final Fantasy X is yet another quality game from Square. The storyline isn't as emotional as Final Fantasy VII but is engrossing enough. The game is an absolute joy from start to finish. Original, not really, but brilliant, certainly. Add it to your collection now.

If you like a console-style story driven RPG, you will most likely find FFX to be one of the best of its type. The changes that have been made to the FF game system are fresh but still similar enough not to alienate old-time FF fans. You could certainly spend your time less wisely than spending it with FFX.

The game is the benchmark for RPG’s to come. Square’s unique story telling ability and their magic to completely immerse us into a world of fantasy and awe gives this game the power to bring a grown man to tears and a crazed gamer to fall in love.

The overhaul to the battle system and the way the characters progress are a real breath of fresh air to the series, and the visuals and sound are all grade A goodness, but I can't overlook my absolute seething hatred of the storyline and certain characters in the game, it is just too poor and they are too annoying to let it pass. This plus the ease of the game through leveling-up and the utter lack of any exploration just leave too much of a bad taste in my mouth to give the game a higher score. At the end of the day this is a good RPG, but it's not that good.

Issues like that stand out, though, because they're surrounded by so many significant new improvements. For something that's meant to finish up a long tradition, Final Fantasy X is an awfully radical departure -- it's as if we came to the major turning point two games early. But a high note is a high note, and the old guard of Final Fantasies is most certainly departing on a high note. What we have is the best-looking game of the series, arguably the best-playing as well, and some experiments in presentation that provide a strong foundation for more work along those lines in the future.
93

All told, Final Fantasy X is an outstanding new installment in the series and is an excellent role-playing game in its own right. Like other Final Fantasy games, it isn't beyond reproach--not everyone will take to its deliberate pacing, its drawn-out and sometimes punishing combat, or its metaphysical story. Similarly, the actual gameplay of Final Fantasy X isn't much of a departure from its predecessors or countless other role-playing games. Instead, the difference between Final Fantasy X and other games is in the sheer scope and undeniably impressive production values. The ambitious design of Final Fantasy X ultimately pervades in every aspect of the game.

Final Fantasy X is, without a doubt, the best RPG on the PS2. Hell, with competition like Ephemeral Fantasia and Okage, there isn't much of a battle. FFX stays true to the Final Fantasy formula, offering an excellent battle system and a level of visual artistry that sets a new mark for others to follow, and the long awaited addition of voices adds a dramatic element that's been missing forever.

Final Fantasy X is a true masterpiece of gaming. For its time, there is no other title that can parallel it, and right now, it stands at the pinnacle of RPGdom. Future games may come along to knock it from its perch, but as it stands, there is little else out there to rival its balance of story and gameplay, its richly constructed world, its variety of minigames, stunning graphics, and beautiful sound. Even gamers biased against the Final Fantasy series should be able to have some fun with this one, because it's quite simply one of the best titles Square has ever put out.
