The Rundown

Square Enix resurrects two classic Final Fantasy titles in the Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster collection. Get reunited with Tidus, Yuna, Wakka, Rikku, Auron, and the rest of the Final Fantasy cast as they try to save the world of Spira from the threat of Sin. Then—in the first direct sequel ever to a Final Fantasy game—join back up with Yuna, Rikku, and new character Payne two years later as a familiar face makes a return.

The Verdict

It’s almost here—the Final Fantasy HD collection you’ve been waiting for! Well, OK, you’ve probably be waiting for a Final Fantasy VII HD remake. And, really, I’m waiting for a Final Fantasy XII HD re-release. But, hey, I loved (and still love) Final Fantasy X a bunch, so I’m more than OK with the idea of going back to it after all this time. From my (admittedly brief) time with the collection, it seems as if the team working on these remasters is really putting some nice effort into the upgraded graphics. Both games will look quite lovely on your HDTV, but I feel like the real treat will be seeing these graphics pop on the Vita’s OLED screen.

Final Fantasy X-2 may actually be the more interesting part of this collection for me, however. Back in the day, I tried playing the game—only to give up on it less than two hours in. Now, 10 years later, I’m ready to give it another shot. I’ve grown, Final Fantasy X-2, and maybe you have, too. Maybe I’ll finally appreciate you now. Or, maybe, our next encounter will prove to me that our relationship was simply never meant to be.
