"The updated versions of these PS2 classics look wonderful but don’t do enough to bring the games into the modern era."
"And while, yes, Final Fantasy X in HD is beautiful, that Square Enix didn’t do anything else to bring it up to date leaves us with an experience that is less exciting than it should be." What else needed to be done? What else needed to be updated?
-_-' I have no idea as well...Are they expecting a new battle system or something?
I'm still happy enough to play the PS2 versions! I'm getting the Remaster mainly for the International features.
Maybe they were hoping for something like a "FFVII original" to "Advent Children"-like jump in graphical quality.
Agree, it's not a remake, it's a HD remaster. Nothing needs to be done to this game. It was great as it was.
I for one am glad they didn't touch up any of physics or add new storyline which would have made no seance to the original story's.
It's probably about the graphic it's always about that this review must be comming from a dumb pc gamer
"What else needed to be done? What else needed to be updated?" Well, actually this can be used against this game. If nothing needed to be done, then it didn't need to be released again. I, for one, wanted a true remake. The non-CG cutscenes have terrible animations, the Blitzball is very awkward and the graphics could definitely be much improved. And taking cues from Wind Waker HD, they could've improved some of the gameplay part, like the ultra annoying "dodging 200 lightning bolts" or the controls on the Chocobo Race. Or even the movement with the analog stick, it was very stiff. As I said in another review, I absolutely love FFX. It's my favorite RPG off all time. Exactly because of this, I won't close my eyes and pretend that it didn't deserve better stuff than a simple "HD remaster".
All these pathetic no name sites giving reviews. What a disgrace to a treasure game.
Everyone has a right to their opinion. The game is still a 10/10 for me.
I love the click bait views though.
Didn't this take like 3 years? did they just have like one guy, some low level intern slowly porting it over the last few years
This also bugs me. For the time it took them to make and release it, they could've done a true remake instead of a simple HD remaster.
Not when they had people on LR:FFXIII, FFXIV, FFXV. 3 BIG projects.
"The updated versions of these PS2 classics look wonderful but don’t do enough to bring the games into the modern era." This guy needs glasses then. It's defintely one of the more modern HD remasters out there.
While you did bring up some good points you have to remember HD remastered PS2 games are games that have just been improved visually with a few other small improvements and changes. Developers are not remaking the game. The HD remasters are so people can re-play it on current systems with better visuals instead of playing it on a PS2 with old blurry visuals. For the time FFX was an exceptional RPG and still is today, the remastered version just has improved visuals and remastered audio.
Is there a release date for EU?
