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

Trivia

Development for Final Fantasy X began in 1999, costing approximately four billion Japanese yen (approximately 32.3 million in the US) with a crew of more than 100 people, most of whom worked on previous games in the series. See more »

Goofs

In the turn based battles where Tidus and his allies fight monsters underwater including piranha type monsters, he is seen swinging his sword in the water, and Wakka somehow kicks the volleyball at the monster, this wouldn't be possible as there's so much resistance underwater which would render the sword or volleyball useless. Tidus and his allies would be better off using a spear weapon, a knife, or an underwater gun which would actually do damage to the enemy underwater. See more »

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.
Maester Seymour Guado: [Seymour has assimilated with the Mortiphasms to become Seymour Omnis] By all means, try! You should thank me! Your death ...

Fainaru fantajî X: My favourite game of all time
25 August 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

When it comes to franchises I'm a bit of a what would be known as "Fanboy" when it comes to Final Fantasy. I grew up with them and therefore I have a real soft spot for them.

Make no mistake that is not me saying that they're all flawless, or even good for that matter but they do have that magic and that charm I can't dispute.

Final Fantasy 10 following 7, 8 and 9 had huge boots to fill but it not only filled them but knocked the boots, the foot and the entire damn leg right out of the park.

It tells the story of young Tidus, a Blitzball player who during a horrific attack on his home city of Zanarkand by a mysterious creature bumps into an old friend of his long absent father. Before he knows it he has been transported elsewhere, safe but confused about what had taken place. This begins the most epic adventure I have ever been fortunate enough to be a part of.

Final Fantasy X IS a flawless game, from the visuals, cut scenes, outstanding score, excellent voice acting, combat systems and story this is the pinnacle of RPG's and remains my favourite game of all time even 17yrs after its release.

This is one of those titles I could rant about at length, I truly adore it. So many memorable moments, a heartbreaking finale, an addictive side game and SO much to it's credit.

I'll resist the urge to fawn over FFX anymore and merely say that for me it had never been better, has never been better and I can't wait until something beats it because that'll have to be something out of this world.

Flawless, masterpiece.

The Good:

Incredible story

Looks amazing especially the cutscenes

Wonderful score

Solid voice acting

The Bad:

Blitzball could have been a tad better

Things I Learnt From This Game:

I can fall in love with a video game character

It just doesn't get any better than this

In Spira, hugging a living cactus is perfectly normal
