FFX is yet another great addition to the Final Fantasy, and Sqauresoft/Enix Legacy!!!!
It keeps alot of the traditional final fantasy elements that we have all come to know and love, including:
- a romace between the main female and main male character.
- a standard black mage; white mage; extremely strong melee attacker; lightning fast thief who can't do damage to save her life; ariel attacker; blue mage (kimahri's overdrives for those who are wondering); and your all-rounded character!
- summon magic
- etc, etc, blah blah!
BUT… it also has new features to give it that sense of certain uniqueness the has displayed in most FF titles! For example the new Spheregrid system, where characters gain “move” ammounts through battle exp, and use these “move” points to navigate around the spheregrid! while doing so, players can use various types of “spheres” to unlock abilities and improve stats. The spheregrid is inactual fact an INGENIOUS device (incase anyone disagrees) due to the fact that: once you have completed a character's grid (say Yuna's, who sucks at attack and defence, just like any other white mage), you can unlock or teleport her to Auron's part of the Spheregrid, where she will begin to excel at strangth and defense, and gain a lot of HP! This allows for TOTAL customaisation possibilities creating hundreds of possible character outcomes!
The graphics are also quite amazing (during the CG and FMVs) with a decent soundtrack and some great game play!
simply… just BUY THE GAME!!!
