Final Fantasy X makes history by being the first Final Fantasy installment to integrate voiceovers into a majority of the story scenes. Surprise Switch release this month? For many, it will be seen as blasphemous to make a change to the soundtrack that accompanied them over many hours of grinding but I believe that having the option to listen to an updated audio experience is as important as the graphics and welcome addition.
Its design comes at an interesting time in the timeline of Final Fantasy games; it moved away from the explorable open world globe made famous by its predecessors. It was well received across the world, hailed for its impressive graphics and emotionally moving story that kept players gripped to the end.
Trying something different with the winning formula of its predecessor innovated on the combat in a unique way. It has many unique and diverse areas to explore from the beach towns to thunderous planes, each brings a new layer to this incredible world. This was expanded and developed even more-so in X-2 and provided even more variation on how to level up your band of misfits.
