I miss Final Fantasy. I’m not trying to sound like a fanboy here, but the latest attempts have felt like hollow shells of the original, wrapped up in some purdy visuals. The last Final Fantasy that really tugged at my heart-strings was X, and much like any other decent game from an older era, it’s making the transition to widescreen.
And it looks like the rumours of Final Fantasy X including the sequel, X-2, are also true. Both of the games will be using the international masters of the original game, and will be due out sometime later in the year.
While I absolutely hated Tidus in FFX, I loved the majority of that game. It was a next-gen title back then, that included such revolutionary ideas such as including actual voices in a FF game, alongside a fantastic journey to save the world.
The sequel was a bit more silly, and had a combat system that was merely an excuse for some visual eye-candy, but combined with a more free-roaming experience, it was still pretty decent overall. I’m looking forward to these games, How about you?
