I remember getting FFX..it was what caused me to get a PS2 finally. I remember thinking "wow", look how good this game looks. The plot was fare. Played the crap out of it. Tried it a few years later (after I got the PS3) and it had lost most of its visual luster...and the horrible amount of combat swap time. So...saw the "HD" version was being released and thought "I wonder if they could bring the magic back"? Well, I'm happy to say they did. In short, the upgrade to detail they did effectively tricked my brain into thinking "this is how I remember the game looking 10 years ago". There is no lag getting into/out of combat (old school RPG issue). The access to the reduce sphere grid is great. Also, the voice acting was all redone with the same actors. First time that video game nostalgia didn't leave me feeling disappointed.
