Storyline

Tidus is a star athlete in his city. He is famous, has all the ladies, and simply loves his life. However, one day, his city is attacked by a mysterious evil, and an old family friend shows up, initiating his quest. He is magically taken to the world of Spira, where that evil, known as Sin, ravages the planet and its people with death and destruction. Sin is a punishment for the world's crimes, however, Tidus has been chosen to stop it. He meets up with Lady Yuna, a summoner (and daughter of a high summoner). Summoners can call the power of the fayth; aeons. Aeons are mighty and mystical creatures. Yuna quests for the Final Aeon: the one power that can slay Sin. Tidus joins as one of Yuna's many guardians, and travels with her to obtain the Final Aeon. However, the quest goes much deeper when high-ranking religious leaders betray the teachings of Yevon, the celestial overlord of Spira, and Yevon himself condones it. Tidus battles with his past and his true self while trying to sort ... Written by Flotis / Agent0042

Quotes

Tidus: [discovering Seymour inside Sin] Don't you *ever* give up?
Maester Seymour Guado: Sin has chosen me. I am part of Sin. I am one with Sin forever. Immortal!
Tidus: Sin just absorbed you.
Maester Seymour Guado: I will learn to control it from within. I have all the time in the world. Since you were gracious enough to dispose of Yunalesca, the only means of destroying Sin is forever gone! Now, nothing can stop us!
Tidus: Well, *we* can.

One of the best.
8 January 2002 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

In a line of distinguished video games such as Final Fantasy, there are bound to be games that set a new standard for the series. Final Fantasy X does just that, becoming possibly the best game in the series since Final Fantasy VI.

Final Fantasy X brings the game series into a lot of new territory. It being the first FF game for the Playstation 2 console, the graphics are even more incredible than those in any game before it. It's also the first game in the series to use spoken dialogue. Each of the main characters has a distinctive voice. While the acting isn't top notch, it's easy to listen to most of the time and the voices fit the characters well. For a first attempt, Square did a fantastic job.

Changes to the way the game works came as well. Rather than a normal leveling system, in which characters become stronger in every category by gaining X amount of experience points, the stats of each character are improved through use of the new Sphere Grid system. Characters earn points to move around the grid and use spheres to activate points, allowing them to boost individual statistics, such as maximum hit points or magic defense, as well as learn new spells and abilities.

The player also has the option to switch characters in and out of battle at will. A welcome addition, now every character can get in on a fight and gain points to use on the Sphere Grid.

Last but not least, the storyline of Final Fantasy X is wonderful. The characters have definite personality, and the protagonist, Tidus, is a great character. Unlike past Final Fantasy heroes like Squall and Cloud, Tidus isn't a brooding, stoic person lacking in the emotional department. He's outgoing, adventurous, humorous and has a full range of emotions, making him feel more like the average guy rather than yet another tragic hero.

In short, Final Fantasy X is an excellent game and shouldn't be missed. Even if you've never played a role playing game before, it's easy to pick up and learn. Years from now, fans of the series will have many fond memories of this game.
