[PS3/Vita HD Remaster Review] Final Fantasy X HD Remaster

FINAL FANTASY X is back—in HD! First released for the PlayStation®2 system in 2001, and widely acclaimed for its moving story and spectacular graphics, FINAL FANTASY X has now returned in HD for the PlayStation®Vita system. Characters, monsters, and environments have been fine-tuned in HD detail, providing a richer, deeper FINAL FANTASY visual experience. Other new features in the HD version include remastered/rearranged BGM, International Edition content, trophies, and Cross-Save functionality.

One of the most anticipated titles of this year, Final Fantasy X HD Remaster was finally released a few weeks ago. I picked it up on PS Vita, and have been playing it ever since then!

Final Fantasy X (PS2) holds a special place in my heart: I played it way too much when I was unemployed back in 2002, and I completely conquered that game in around 160 hours!

Is the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster worth your time and money? When compared to other HD re-releases, how does the game rank so many years after its original release? Long story short, this game is the best HD remaster I’ve played, and this 13-years old game might even the best RPG available in the PS Vita library!


Yea, I love Final Fantasy X THAT much !!!!!

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Demo Impressions

I had the chance to download and play the (short) Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII demo that was released on PSN yesterday. Here are my impressions on the demo of the game that will end the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

One of the first thing that I noticed is that the game name is not Final Fantasy XIII-3, which would have been expected to follow the previous games name structure. The game is called Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the main heroine of the FFXIII trilogy, and lets you know that she will be the only playable character.

The demo shows a segment that seemed relatively advanced in the story, even for me who has completed both FFXIII and FFXIII-2, so I did find that the story was a little confusing: Snow (Lightning’s long friend) is now an enemy and the demo’s opening cutscene starts with those two having a fight to the death.
