One great RPG and one curio. Not a perfect port, but definitely Square Enix's best stab at bringing Final Fantasy to PC so far.

Whatever you think of the original games this is one of the best HD remakes ever, and a considerable improvement on the already excellent PlayStation 3 and Vita versions.

The touch screen options, the removal of PC's autosave feature and other adjustments, aside from playing it in georgeous portable mode, make this Nintendo Switch's version the best of all that have been released as a Remaster, and the most faithful to play the original versions, even if it had to make some sacrifices in the visual part.

A great comeback for an amazing game: if you didn't manage to play Final Fantasy X back in the days, you definitely should play it now.

Nothing new, but nothing wrong with this old but great classic RPG.

There's no point in trying to sum up Final Fantasy X or X-2's storyline beyond saying that it is every bit as incredible as you remember, cringeworthy laughing sequences and all. The PC version brings accessibility and graphical upgrades, as well as the promises of unofficial mod-based improvements. If this is your first time with Final Fantasy X, I envy you — it's a powerful journey that you won't soon forget.

Although Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on the PS3 already did a superb job in bringing back two classic games and adding extra content, the new PS4 counterpart has managed to outdo it. That being said, while the definitive version resides on the PS4, if you already own the PS Vita or PS3 version it is a pricey upgrade for only a few new features and a visual upgrade

Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster on the PS4 is the best that the games have ever looked. Sharp, crisp visuals bring the always enticing world of Spira to life on the big screen, while the core elements of both titles remain rock solid and impressively polished. The collection represents a great opportunity to jump back to a time when Squaresoft was seemingly unconquerable, and if you're totally new to the franchise, it's difficult to think of a better starting point.

If for some reason you have never experienced these games, get this collection. It is more than worth your time to see a genuine piece of JRPG history.

Fun Tidbit: There's also the inclusion of a mini story FMV that links FFX and X-2 together and the standalone tower climbing mini game for FFX-2 along with a credits/audio drama.

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster is a nice fit to the Switch's library, but it adds nothing compared to previous editions of the HD Remaster that appeared on other platforms.

The remakes of these two classic games was masterfully done. Square Enix is no stranger to remakes and upgrades but they have outdone themselves with this iteration of X / X-2. From the orchestrated score, to the increased polygon count and improved textures the game is atheistically better in every way. If you missed out on playing these games on the PS2 this new layer of polish on these classic gems will leave you unable to guess one is 14 years old this year.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PC is the definitive version of two great entries in the overall series. There's more than enough additional content packed in, refined visuals and a remastered soundtrack that alone would be worth it, but put on top of it a few of the better Final Fantasy journeys and memorable characters, as well as mechanics and it's an easy recommendation.
