Great storyline like all its predecessors

In terms of storyline, I would say this was one of the best in the series.  I felt part 9 was a bit childish and you didn't care much for the main character.  FFX was the total opposite because you get more involved in the story and the main character was more "likeable".  He's your typical youngster with a cool hairstyle, like most final fantasy games.  Its your typical storyline of a group of people joining up to defeat the main evil like all the other final fantasies.  Great character development which is what FF is known for.

The main problem I have with this game is the final boss.  Unlike part 6 and 7, The main boss was the cool badass guy that everyone remembers.  Sephiroth from part 7 is probably the most memorable final boss of all games.  He was cool, evil, and you watched him develop into the final crazy god like boss from beginning to end of the game.  Same goes for Kefka from part 6.  You watch the clown (Kefka) work his way from a lacky of the emperor to becoming the evil god in the end.

All in all in its probably the 3rd best ff in my opinion.  Great storyline but the main/final boss wasn't as memorable as the previous ones.

The cast of characters in this game range from mediocre to terrible. This was the only game where the main character was so annoying that I had to shut off the game for awhile, and revisit weeks later. Character development was especially lacking. I'm probably just throwing a minor hissy fit because I hated Tidus so much. So. So. Much. I'm also one of the few people that dislike Auron - although, that's mostly because he enables Tidus to talk all the time.      Anyway, …

(So tired of writing these Quick Tips) Since the Dreamcast held me back from getting a PS2, I didn't play this in its heyday. But what it did shamelessly well when I finally did get my hands on it was blow me away with its graphics to a level I'd not experienced since FFVII. However, the characters, story, and gameplay didn't particularly stand out against the previous FFs I had played. The voice dubbing was also surprisingly awful at times. But I say these things with perspective, back then everything …

A game with great gameplay mechanics and some hardcore boss fights but kind of a silly story. Started out good but wow after a while I couldn't take it seriously anymore. Regardless a good enough game but the story really left me frustrated.

Probably my favorite FF of all time. The interactions and relationships between the cast is beautifully made and I never thought of: "man that's boring, when is the cutscene over so I can go back to playing"   It's a big world full of great events, the good old love relationship, and the good old apocalypse super monster that wants to destroy the whole world. The gameplay is easy to learn you have three members in your main party, but can switch them whenever you want …

Took FF VIII's problems and ramped them up with annoying characters, bizzare character models and a too futurey look that makes me think it would have been better off just being it's own game and not Final Fantasy.

Pros: A theme about religion and people who question it is involved     Cons: I can't believe a designer can create such weak characters     The Bottom Line: Nothing to say here today.     Remember how Square created two Final Fantasies in sci-fi settings for the Playstation before returning to form with Final Fantasy IX, a game set in an actual fantasy world? Well, turns out that return to form was just a hiccup.     After …

I think I was more moved by this game than any film or game. I will carry the memory of Final Fantasy X's story with me forever.That story which affected me so strongly follows the brash blitzball player Tidus, who is thrust into a future world besieged by an enigmatic monster called Sin. This new epoch is dominated by the religious dogma of Yevon, which teaches that Sin is sent as punishment for the use of technology. Against Sin are the summoners, powerful magic-users who can call upon divine …

Wiki

Final Fantasy X is a console role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix), and the tenth installment in the Final Fantasy series. It was released in 2001 for Sony's PlayStation 2. As of January 20, 2004, the game has sold around 6.6 million units worldwide and was also voted by the readers of the Japanese video game magazine Famitsu to be the greatest video game of all-time. Set in the fantasy world of Spira, the game's story centers around a group of adventurers and their quest to defeat a rampaging force known as "Sin".

Final Fantasy X marks the Final Fantasy series' transition from entirely pre-rendered backdrops to fully three-dimensional areas, achieved with the PlayStation 2's Emotion Engine processor. Although pre-rendered backgrounds are not entirely absent, their use has been restricted to less vibrant locations, such as building interiors. Final Fantasy X is also the first game in the series to feature a wide range of realistic facial expressions, as well as other technological developments in graphical effects achieved, such as variance in lighting and shadow from one section of a character's clothing to the next. Final Fantasy X is also the first in the series to feature voice-over actors.

Final Fantasy X introduces other significant advances in the Final Fantasy series. For instance, because of the implementation of voice-overs, scenes in the game are paced according to the time taken for dialogue to be ...
