View Full Version : Zanarkand (FFX) or Zanarkand (X-2)?

09-21-2006, 08:49 AM
One thing i noticed when i played FFX-2 was that the music was much better than i expected. While the soundtrack was pretty great the one track that really stood out was "Zanarkand Ruins". It took a much diffirent approach than FFX did and even had an almost middle-eastern feel to it which i found very interesting.

But i was just wondering, between the two Zanarkand tracks (FFX, X-2), which do you prefer?.

Though its probably a pretty biased opinion.

FFX definitely, because it stood out and you remembered it even after you played the game, but in FFX-2 i can't even remember hearing it.

I agree with Mr denny, X-2 was a great soundtrack!
but on the zanarkand themes i got to go with FFX...... it's just FANTASTIC!!!

Although I voted for FFX, X-2 had a better soundtrack than most people think. While the regular soundtrack was nice, the "Piano Collections" soundtrack simply blew me away. Definitely check it out.

Maybe FFX-2 have a better soundtrack, the theme "To Zanarkand" it's better in the FFX OST, to my mind.

I actually prefer the X soundtrack. The X-2 soundtrack gets really repetitive really fast. Also a lot of the music is just rehashed and some of it rather poorly at that.

I gotta go with the FFX version. The X-2 didn't appeal to me ask much as X did. And it's just prettier in the first one. : D

FF X Zandarkand had me tapping my foot. That rarely happens.

I really liked the Piano Collections version of the X-2 Zanarkand song, but actual soundtrack-wise, the FFX song was definitely better. The X-2 one was hardly memorable.

On the whole FFX had the better soundtrack. But I prefer X-2's Zanarkand theme. I just love the sound of it.
FFX's version was too repetitive for me.

FF X-2.
I can't remember the FFX Zanarkand song.

10-20-2006, 06:48 PM
definitely FFX. FFX-2 was an abomination.

10-31-2006, 02:12 AM
X. X-2s soundtrack was just...horrible.

10-31-2006, 02:56 AM
Its better thats all I need to say. O:]

I like the X song better, but love the X-2 Mount Gagazet song.
X-2 soundtrack was better though. X boss song is awesome and the yu yevon song....ok i'll stop.

02-17-2007, 05:19 AM
Both are good. But FFX takes my fancy.

02-17-2007, 10:31 AM
FFX's version of the song was fitting because its the first time you visit it. Its more memorable because its probably the most important "city" in the game.

FFX-2's version was better in my opinion, I just liked it more.

02-19-2007, 12:15 AM
I agree also Jimsour, and also it was close to a good boss fight with Seymor.

Death Awaits you! I hated that. He was easy though.

03-04-2008, 05:03 PM
I'd have to go with FFX. Though I admit that FFX-2 is pretty good too.

03-25-2008, 01:13 AM
FFX-2 is good. But FFX EXELENT!!!!

<i>I can't remember the FFX Zanarkand song.</i>

Then you don't know which song it is. It's the song that plays in the intro before the title screen. It's also remixed into several songs during the game, most notably the ending theme.

It's by far the best song in the game(or at least the most famous).

Any and all music from X-2 was forgettable, un-epic and consisted of short loops. The exception is the main theme played on the title screen.

I'm talking about the track on FFX where you running around fighting in Zanarkand. That track is soo fucking tough imo. I'm get my cd collection back soon. I got the 4 disc set.

FFX is legendary. FFX-2 was a massive disappointment. I consider the soundtrack for X to be superior in every way to X-2.

I'm not sure if most people in this thread are thinking of the famous "To Zanarkand" track, because it only plays during that scene in the fire there. The real music that plays through Zanarkand that the OP was thinking of is "Someday the Dream Will End", which is better than To Zanarkand anyway.

X-2 was a great soundtrack. I loved the Zanarkand theme there as well, which was also used in the Thunder Plains cave with Cid.

If the OP is referring to "Someday the Dream Will End", I definitely like it better. So FFX.

But there are places where I prefer X-2's music to X's, such as Guadosalam. How the hell did X's make it only the piano collection when X-2 didn't? X-2's Kilika was also better, as was Mt. Gagzet, Calm Lands, Mushroom Rock Road, Djose Highroad, and Luca. Bevelle too, but depends which theme you compare it to from X.
It's a tie between the Mi'hen Highroad themes.

X-2's Thunder Plains, however, was a disgrace to X's, almost depressed me to not hear it every time I was there in X-2.

God, I wish Prak was here for all these shallow "X-2 was an abomination" kids.

Wasn't a fan of FFX-2 or its soundtrack. The Zanarkand theme was OK, but I liked FFX's Zanarkand theme far better.

By the way, I just noticed something. FFX-2's Zanarkand theme sounds similar to Chrono Cross's Chronopolis track. Check it out.

FFX-2 Zanarkand: [Only registered and activated users can see links]
Chrono Cross Chronopolis: [Only registered and activated users can see links]

Anyone know what's used to make that sound they have in common? Guessing it's computer generated and not an instrument?

I would have to say the Zanarkand theme from X I liked much better. It just set the mood for the game when you first heard it during the first scene in FFX. And its just one of many songs that make me want to learn how to play the piano.

05-19-2008, 04:31 PM
Definitely the one from FFX. Cannot remember a tune from X-2 other than the cockpit theme.

05-21-2008, 04:48 PM
i love the ffx-2
