The story, characters and soundtrack to this game are really top notch.  Almost unparalleled in the industry I'd go as far as to say.

X is the best final fantsy I or even my friends of my generation have experienced having to reset the whole faking game just because u missed an aion and can't beat sin without hem or the Samurai aion who has a chance to one shoot everything even the final boss this is just a taste of what this game can offer its a wonder in story gameplay and music don't miss it kids.

None of this, do NOT buy this game. If this game succeeds we will get a dreadful X-3 sequel.  If the 2.5 novel is any indication it ruins every single fond memory we have from x.

Having played the original on my PS2, the emulated on my PC and the imported the PS3 so i could play sooner. I'm very disappointed, if you fell in love with the original PS2 version, do NOT buy this remaster! Almost everything breaks the immersion of the game and the feelings the original conveyed to you.

Too few character models were redone and this is too obvious, only the main party members were redone in both games and when you have HD models interacting with SD models, it makes for a very strange experience, i would have assumed at least the Seymour would have been redone or at least reoccurring npc's such as Jetch, Braska and young Auron but no. The environments in 10 look like their PC emulated counter parts leading me to think that they were simply unscaled and not natively rendered in a higher resolution. In 10-2 the environments actually look worse.

PS3: http://i.imgur.com/QrO16rA.jpg - Look at the cliff on the right hand side, it lost all details.

Very little work was put into FFX-2 and that is evident :( I was under the impression that 3 long years of work was put into remastering this game and yet every single model has the skin color of a mannequin, expressionless and emotionless faces with eyes that look like they are about to shoot out of their sockets! When you have a heart warming scene between Tidus and Yuna who both look like dolls, it stops being a heart warming scene and becomes a joke where you can't take the characters seriously and can't help but laugh.

On the upside: New soundtrack is good and HD menu's are incredible, CGI per-rendered scenes which all the trailers show are still top notch!

This is so nostalgic, I have always rated the scene in Macalania Forest as one of my top ten moments in video games.

@cjimrun  Not really. There are much better in every area. Play Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Witcher and The Last of Us then tell me FF beats that level.

@Kristmonkey  I found the story itself to be one of the saddest out of any game I've ever played (The Last of Us being next in line).  I look forward to replaying it again.

@matthewkenealy @cjimrunWhile I am a fan of the series as a whole,  I was obviously referring to X specifically.  To Zanarkand (main theme) and Suteki Da Ne (the song in this trailer) are Nobuo Uematsu classics while the outstanding Fight With Seymour boss track also featured Masashi Hamauzu who would go on to be main composer for XIII.  I don't know if you're familiar with the plot of X and I don't want to throw-out any spoilers but the relationship between Tidus, Sin and the Fayth is frankly brilliant and I have rarely if ever encountered it's equal in three decades of gaming.
