Final Fantasy 10 (PS2)
Posted 25 November 2003 - 02:02 AM
The first Final Fantasy for PS2, and one of the top selling games for the system. Now a Greatest Hit, did it live up to the hype, or was it a waste of your time?

Good....but was it better than FF VII or FF VI (FF III on SNES)??......sorry.....nope.
Final Fantasy III was my favorite of them all. I loved how the world changed.

i think the fact that it was the first final fantasy to spawn a sequel says it all.

I liked how the game touched on alot of human emotions, and how the bad guy had a side that was touching that you could actually believe, rather then being something stupid and outrite pitiful.
I like'd the battle system alot. I liked the voice acting.
The only thing i didnt like was how the charactor models looked so much different between the gameplay and the CG.

Cool games though, FF10 was good enough for me to be curious about FF10-2
Oh so now you are using intelligence and common sense to win the arguement...that's low man! This is CAG and you aren't allowed to do that.

I really like it so far. It is very linear, as in, I haven't found much 'wander around until you find out where to go next', which I actually like. It is a BEAUTIFUL game, and some of the monsters/fiends are really cool/disgusting looking. [Of course, I also just got a PS2, and I've actually been visually impressed by almost every game I've tried.]
It does seem to be pretty easy--I haven't died yet, nor come very close [although that was due in part to some fortuitous timing re: my characters' special attacks.] And again, I'm only a little ways in.
I'm not a huge fan of Blitzball, but i think I like this minigame better than the card game in VIII. [mainly because I sucked at that game.]
I like the characters--they have a lot of personality. I don't have to *like* their personalities, but they do have it. I notice that the dubbing is way off on some of the spoken parts, and Wakka's voice kind of bugs me, but I've gotten used to it.
It's an interesting switch--no more experience points or Levels, just choose your own abilities/skills/stats based on the weapons/armor you equip and Sphere Grid. Even that, however, is pretty linear, so far [admittedly, I don't have a whole lot of it uncovered.]
I like the sci-fi tinges to the story also.
It changes enough of the FF elements to be unique on its own, but there's enough similarity so it's not a totally different game.

The Sphere Grid rocked IMO and really made the game a blast for me. I would say it is tied with the Job System as my favorite method of gaining skills.
All of my ratings are comparing them to other games in the FF series, not against all RPGs in general.
Overall, I give it an 8.5
However, I am getting really tired of the teen angst type storylines and half clothed characters. It makes the game a bit embarassing to play. And it looks like FFXII is going to be treading down that same path unfortuantely. I may have to miss it.

FFX was a mess.
Graphically amazing and the story was touching and surprising.
Battle system was total trash...I can't believe they didn't have standard levels that you could go up.
Sphere Grid? Good. Materia? Better.
Tidus was waay to annoying as a main character.
Yuna was ugly compared to Garnet, Rinoa, Tifa, etc.
Horribly weak start for a Final Fantasy....took forever to get interesting.
A decent effort: but that's not saying much considering RPGs have been dead for the most part in the post-PS1 greatness of Squaresoft. I honestly like FFX-2 a lot more than I did FFX...much more interesting gameplay and it builds on a fascinating story.

I can't wait for a cheap ass deal for FFX-2!

IMO, FFX-2 was disappointing. It was still a good game, but it lacked storyline. The fighting system, however, was very impressive.
