      The tenth installment in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy X is focused on Tidus, a sports star in the world of Zanarkand, who is teleported into a future world where his hometown is a destroyed holy land, and he has to join a training summoner to defeat an evil beast known as Sin. The game got attention for its revolutionary graphics on a fairly new console and its additional mini-game, Blitzball. I was eager to try this game out, as a fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, but my reaction was somewhat mixed.

      The graphics really are amazing for an early PlayStation 2 release. The cut-scenes tend to be


      lengthy, but they take full advantage of the PlayStation 2’s capabilities. Likewise, the soundtrack is amazing, as one would expect of a Final Fantasy game. I quickly went out and purchased the soundtrack for myself. For the most part, the voice acting is great, and it includes several well-known actors, including the voice actor known for Bender from the show Futurama. The game play itself is enjoyable, with a new type of battle system and the ability to switch out characters in battle.

      The story is an interesting one that is a little different from the typical Final Fantasy story. The relationships between Tidus and Yuna as well ...


      • as between Lulu and Wakka are not very convincing, but the character of Auron is an interesting addition to the story. Throughout the game, there are side quests to undertake and try to clear in order to unlock special items and scenes. Unfortunately, some of these side quests are impossible to find without the aid of a strategy guide, meaning something else has to be purchased, or at least borrowed, just to fully enjoy the game. Otherwise, the player will realize with frustration towards the end of the game that they have missed interesting items that are no longer available, meaning they have to either go without the item
        or start over and try to get it on another try.

        For the visual appeal and fun side-quests, I did like Final Fantasy X. But overall, it was not as enjoyable of a game as I thought it would be, and many of the “surprises” in the plot were typical and predictable. I had hoped for the compelling, well-written tales from other Final Fantasy games, but got a disappointing tale that could be figured out with little excitement. I would suggest this game to somebody looking for a single play-through now that it is much cheaper, but back when it was retailing for almost $50, I would not have recommended it.
