What kind of game is this? It is Final Fantasy X (and its successor X-2), which originally celebrated its release on the Playstation 2 in 2001. With its story and the then brilliant graphics – just look at the hair and hairstyles of the characters for that time – it thrilled the masses. Final Fantasy 14 continued the fable for accessories and outfits.

To date, over 21 million copies are said to have been sold (via Now the HD remaster version is on sale, featuring sharper textures and resolution. In addition, it offers an automatic save function.

Why is? The game is set in the fictional world of Spira. There, after disastrous events in Zanarkand, a high-tech metropolis, a successful Blitzball player named Tidus ends up in other regions to take action with his friends against a well-known threat. In the second part of the X series, Yuna then comes into focus.

How many game hours does Final Fantasy X and X-2 offer you?

Even if the games are linear, the first part can take around 70 hours of play. According to the colleagues at howlongtobeat (via, the second part can add up to a total of up to 154 hours of gaming fun.

Even if some critics appreciate the second part less, it at least shows how the story continues after the end of FF-X. Here, however, it is mainly Yuna who pushes the story further. In the second part, the combat system is expanded to include dancing.

How does it play? At its core, the game impresses with closed areas that you can explore with your characters, as well as a turn-based combat system, which allows you to reconsider tactics in battle and adjust them if necessary.

Similar to the recently released Honkai: Star Rail, you then take turns taking turns with the opponent in the fight. The bosses sometimes require multiple attempts to understand and anticipate the attacks, as well as to be able to react accordingly.

But you can also summon powerful beings to fight for you. To do this, you can try your hand at Blitzball.

In my opinion, Final Fantasy X convinces above all with a grandiose story. So in the end it almost seems to me as if the gameplay was “only” a means to an end.
