FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

Its always good to know that every year or so, the folks at Square put their collective minds to work, and belch out another sequl to past year Final Fantasy game.  I'm sure they have their motives... Money, power, fame, Moogles in high goverment offices. No matter what the outcome of their diabolical plans, we,  owners of the dying Ps2, are rewarded with another FF game.

From a gamers poing ot few, FFX is an old game.  It already has its own un-offical expansion, plus a few decendants that are carrying the FF mantle.  While most people can easly pick this game up for a few dollars, most of us, who have played the game, are still oogled by this games slick graphics, awesome combat system, and sheer detailed movies.

 Like all FF games, you are given a male character that acts like a female, and looks like one as well.  Later on, you meet up with more females that look and act... like females!  Like most guys, I like eye candy. Thus, I was not dissapointed by some of the curves and lines in some of the chick characters.  What did erk me, was the almost liner gameplay.  Yes, there are sidequest galore, but most of them, you can't even think about doing, till the end of the game.

FFX is a beautiful game, with plenty of playable characters, a re-amped battle system, with a unique leveling system that puts a breath of fresh air into an old series.  Sadly, this as all been done before.  Each FF game has put its own stink on a certain aspect of the game, FF7-Materia, FF8-Juncting Magic, and so on....

The biggest aspect for this game, was the fact it was designed for the PS2. All the pretty movies gave this game alot of power, and hype.  Not to mention the beautiful levels, and detailed graphics.

Yes, the game is liner, yes it has all been done before, but Square has made up for these flaws with an explosion of sheer graphics that are all powered by the PS2 impressive processor.

Pros: Lovely movies and Graphics... Eye candy galore!

Cons: Males STILL look like females.

Pros: New battle system, and leveling.

Cons: Its all been done before...

Final Note: While FFX is one of the prettiest games aviable, it still falls short of some major elemts... Liner gameplay, weird character design, and no multplayer. Still, FFX is one game that everyone should have in their game liberary.
