I don't care what the other reviewers say, this game (X, not X-2) is one of the best games out there for it's day. Sure, the graphics are a little dated, I mean the game was made for the PS2 for crying out loud. It is also one of the better FF games, 3 excluded, just because it is a relic of days gone by. I mean, back then, games were hard and currently, it just seems as time moves on, video games become easier and easier. Perhaps that was the problem with the other reviews, maybe the game was too hard for them -shrugs-.
Anyways, if you want to play a game with decent difficulty, great graphics (for a PS2), and one of the best story lines out there, ignore the other reviews and get this game.
P.S. It would probably look better through your PS2 instead of your Vita.
The game belongs in your memory, trust me, nostalgia is better than the real thing. The graphics haven't aged well, and if you concentrate hard enough, you can see the moment where square started assuming it's playerbase isn't smart enough to figure out basic rpg combat. Also blitzball is still a thing, and it's so much worse than you remember.
Replaying this game made me love it that much less, and I don't wish that on anyone.
For me, this had a lot of promise. Unfortunately the pacing was much too slow to make this very enjoyable. Standard aged RPGs like this can be fun but when so much of your time is spent doing almost nothing and it begins to feel like a chore.
