Has anyone played the International versions of FF X, X-2, and XII? Are there really any major differneces? I don't believe that they were ever released to the US, which is where I am. I'm just wondering if I am missing out on anything.

I have FFX PAL, which basically is the International version. Yeah well the Inter versions always have extra stuff.

Extra scenes, extra gameplay elements, extra bosses, etc.

FFX had an extra sphere grid, many new bosses (all Dark Aeons, which are all pretty much impossible to defeat), etc.

FFXII has even more stuff that's new.

Dark Aeons just get pwned by Yojimbo and Zanmato.


FFXII had personalise sphere grids so each character was unique. It also let the player control the guest characters.

No they dont. only FFVII(which was released in America, and was the original american release), FFX, FFX-2, FFXII, and the Kingdom Hearts games excluding the COMs one.

And I am not bashing just FFXII. I am bashing all of the other international games. Instead of coming out with a good game with low features....why not create what you would create with more time? They should be able to crank out a FFXINTER. without releasing a preliminary FFX. It just pisses me off a little bit on thier work ethic. Even more so that they dont release in the US and the UK. I am sure that they would make profit off of it.

Ahh, ok. Then FFVII, FFX, FFX-2, FFXII and Kingdom Hearts all had to be remade because they were crap the first time.

Aww, I didnt realise. I think you're being harsh. Its not as if the games were lacking originally, and suddenly the international version made them great. The additions are only small in the international version and they probably couldnt wait more time to complete it for financial reasons.

Yeah, its annoying, but I dont really think you can blame them much. You can only do that if they were being lazy during production, and we dont know if they were or not.

Well...you cant prove that they were not being lazy. So......I can still complain! biggrin.gif

And if it was financial reasons, they should take thier new ideas into another game and incorporate them into the new one! They shouldnt rehash what is already released and release it exclusively to one country...it makes the rest of us feel like shit!

And Stiener, my sexy posting buddy. We have been argueing so well for the past two or three days...its been lovely! But I may have to say good bye for tonight! I may be going to a club soon. Buuuut it looks like they are going to ditch me sooooo whatever? But your arguements are getting weak my son...pump it up!

But then it wouldnt fit thematically. I mean, they altered the liscense board in FFXII. I mean, they couldnt create a new game with an altered liscense board could they? That would be unoriginal. The tweaks they do are too small generally to incoporate in a new game. But i do agree, its annoying.

Byeeeeee!!!

(If your friend dont ditch you. tongue.gif)

My arguments are getting weak because I finished my exams and I want to relax. I dont want to think, dammit. mad.gif

And I dont have a decent PS2 game that I havent played to experiment with. I tried playing Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, but it was boring as hell. sad.gif

Aww are you having trouble finding a good game? Well....maybe a new hobby would help.

And I am leaving! Seeya!

EDIT: ANDDDD I am not leaving yet...false alarm

But anyway....Ill be here for another hour! Ahh!

And you can fit some other games system into another game. They reused the summon system enough times but they tweaked it. And the license board is like a tweeked FFX spheregrid.
