While playing FFX you will notice the story line is heavy and getting you to enter the world of FFX. But the game play is great and enjoyable. The mini game while is needed to get 100% of game play may be hard, but it is wroth the time in tackling. The graphics are some of the best in a FF title. 5 star review. Even players who don't play RPG's are getting this game to dive headfirst into the graphics, audio, and storyline.

FFX goes down as one of my favorite games. The tunrbase fighting system allows you to integrate a strategy. Which to me makes a rpg funner to play. The story is deep and long, which allows to get into the game. The graphics are amazing, and are shown through the many cut scenes. This game has many side-missions which if you dont want to accomplish you can probably beat the game in about 60 hours i beat this game doing everything in 100 and some odd hours but i liked playing blitzball and took me forever to get the ledgenary weapons. The way to upgrade the chracter is a real nice feature. The sphere grid is what they call it, and this allows you to upgrade such attributes as strength, denfense, magic, agility, it also allows you to learn abilities, skills and spells. The new type of game, that you can play is called blitzball which is fun. They could have made it a little bit better but all in all still fun to play. Of course getting the legdenary weapons still requires help from a strategy guide or online reading. Hopefully they put alittle better clues in the game but thats not a big problem. The only bad side is before going into some boss fights you will have to run around in a spot and getting into fights to level up. But its not that bad. Overall i belive that no future final fantasy game will be better then this one.
Breath-taking graphics, sincere voice acting, brilliant gameplay, and a deeply compelling story combine to deliver one of the most profound gaming experiences ever developed. Whether you`re a die-hard fan of the series, an RPG addict, or just a curious gamer, you won`t be disappointed. Skeptical? I was too at first. Rest assured though, Square has lived up to their reputation and produced solid gold. Rent it and see for yourself.
