Video Game Review — Final Fantasy X — Did They Even Try To Make A Good Game?
Final Fantasy X (2001)
I don’t understand why some people love this game? From the obnoxious voice acting, to the obnoxious characters, to the mindnumbingly boring plot, there are no saving graces of this waste of energy.
I should have quit playing after ten hours, but I deluded myself into thinking it was going to get better. Yes, there are a few “surprise” plot twists, but they were predictable. Combat was interesting, but got old real fast. The leveling system was neat, but only superficially so. The cut scenes were plentiful and by plentiful I mean TOO MANY.
And don’t get me started on Blitzball.
After the masterpiece which was the seventh game, the Final Fantasy series slipped with part eight. Part nine lifted the series, but this tenth one just about killed it for me. I have yet to play XII, but if it’s just as bad as X, then I’m finished with the Final Fantasy series.
