I have not but this makes me really curious, but also a little nervous, about trying it. Usually the HD would mean much better but it sounds like maybe not so much here, but I guess there is only one way to find out.

It has a sort of a different feel to it.
Actually I'm not a fan of these HD remasters in general. Devs usually seem to just slap high resolution textures on old assets and call it an upgrade but it ends up looking worse to my eyes.

I agree HD remasters in general give a new feeling to the game.

The HD Remaster of FFX had improved soundtrack in my opinion. Although it was also quite unfortunate that only the main characters' faces were updated to HD.
If I remembered correctly, I think twice is the number of times that I have played the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X. It's quite true that the sound track was really improved in the version of the game but the updating of just the faces of the main character in the game made it look like a child's play or that the developers aren't such of what they were doing.

Well, to me, they were being cheap about updating only the faces of the main characters. Not enough budget lol.
I totally agree with you here, it's doing an incomplete job by just updating few main character faces in the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X. Yes, other phases of the game looked cool, like the soundtrack and the environmental graphics but not extending it to all the characters in the is a poor finishing to the upgrade of HD remaster version of the game.

No, I have not played the HD remastered version of Final Fantasy X but I have seen the complete walkthrough of the game on Youtube. The graphics are a little bit cleaner than the original but overall, I would say the graphics haven't changed drastically. There are, however, a few new items and character abilities that were not found in the original version. Also, there were some changes to the soundtrack, which I do not mind. The changes do not ruin the awesome original soundtrack but rather enhances it! I think anyone looking to play Final Fantasy X again or even for the first time, the HD remastered version is a great version to play.

I haven't because I wasn't sure how it would alter my perception of the original. Generally remakes do that but there are some rare exceptions like the super early FF games. As for 10...not sure. I'm sure it can't be too bad so I'll get to it someday, been kinda meaning to but have held off for a bit.

Really wanted to bought one of this when I was on japan. although their copy was on Japanese Language, I don't know If that has choices in which you can play it on English Language that's why I didn't bought it. I know I can't give a good review for this. although I see that they made some changes in the game? such as OST? hmm.. I like to buy a copy for myself.

I had it on my PS4 and as much as I wanted to play it I just couldn't. Because I remember how long it took me to beat it on the PS2. I spent 95hrs playing the game on the PS2 when I finally beat it. And these days I just don't have 95hrs to sit around and play video games.

P.S. If this was 10 years ago when I had unlimited free time I would have definitely replayed it again.

Cost is the main thing that limit my going for HD games, it's always too costly but I won't blame anyone going for it because it's fun and gives a lot of excitement when playing. I'm yet to play this particular game in its HD version but definitely I will play it one day.

Well, I have to agree with you, $39.99 for a game that is 16 years old does seem excessive. When I bought my copy it was on sale for $19.99 and even that seems like too much for such an old game. But they are going to keep making them as long as people keep paying these crazy prices.

When compared to the cost of the game currently, I would say that you got the game at a very good time. I really wish I could have been that lucky to get it back then. Maybe I would get lucky and have a friend who might wanna sell his own, then I would gladly purchase it at a lower cost.

I never knew there was a remastered version of FFX. I would be interested in playing if I could but sadly I've switched over to using XBOX consoles after my PlayStation 2. A little disappointed that the HD Remastered version isn't available for the XBOX One! :( I see Walmart has it available for $17.50 for PlayStation 4, which in my opinion isn't a bad price considering that it is one of my favorite games that I really would like to replay.

I've always been a big fan of the the sound track for FFX so it excites me that there were some upgrades regarding that, as well as the extra game play add-ons. I see others mentioning that only a few of the characters faces were touched up. Why go through the trouble to touch up the scenery and music but not the rest of the character graphics? Who knows... I still would definitely give the game a go if I had the option too but I can't afford another console at the moment.

Buh-buh-buh-but the textures looked improved on everything else in the trailers. Dang. Looks like I know I'm not gonna pick this back up then, especially the X-2 remaster. Ah well, one time playing through that game was all I needed, really.

The gameplay is pretty much the same but the graphics indeed improved. The NPC's though remained on lower definition. I guess they think most people won't notice so they ignored that minor detail.

Oh you would be surprised by what people will notice, no matter how minor. I bet we all can point to someone we know there, at least I can.

No , I have not played the remastered version of Final Fantasy 10, but I have studied a few of the videos on YouTube and some other online reviews, and it seems the gameplay has remained unchanged. Also the graphics have improved and the music as been rearranged as well- another great thing,is all the extra goodies that have been added to this Final Fantasy 10 remaster,and that has really improved this game as well!
