Parent's Guide

A collection of two of the most well-loved Final Fantasy games, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster takes the two PS2 favourites and remakes them for the Playstation 3, with updated graphics, re-orchestrated music and a handful of extras to boot. Both set in the fictional world of Spira, a land ravaged by the destructive deity Sin, it's up to you and your companions to defeat Sin, save the world and then, by the time the second game rolls around, calm political tensions in two tales of epic proportions.

Driven forward by their story, a lot of your time is spent watching cutscenes and conversations between characters, working your way through the twisting ruins, caves and jungles and battling the monsters you encounter along the way. How fights work differs between the two games, with Final Fantasy X having much more of a slow-paced, strategic, turn-based battle system in which you choose your commands from a list, while X-2 relies more on faster action and changing your costume mid-fight to access different skills and abilities.

While most of the main characters and scenes are fully voiced, the villagers and other such side characters only speak through text - and sometimes have crucial things to say, such as instructions on how to get into a certain cave to progress through the story. Therefore a fairly solid grasp of English is pretty much a necessity, meaning this is more a game for the older crowd. Which is just as well really, as some of the levelling up, Blitzball and Creature Creator tutorials can be rather wordy and not-all-that-well-explained too.

Mature Content

As with most role-playing games, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has it's fair share of battles - although they're not especially violent, gory or over the top. Attacking demonic creatures, giant insects and bad guys with guns, swords and magical spells, most defeated enemies simply collapse and fade away when defeated, with no blood, guts or gore when you attack. Cutscenes have the occasional blood spurt, or show a battlefield strewn with dead (or perhaps just resting) soldiers, or a rampaging demon destroying a town, but there's nothing too worrying here.
