Im still in the early stages in the game, but im wondering when you beat the game - can you still keep playing? Im trying to ask if theres much replay value - or if it just ends. I also am wondering if there is a movie mode or something so i can just view the awesome CG. Thanks.

The game does indeed just end, however, before you go to the final area to fight the final boss, you might want to investigate Spira as there are lots of subquests to be done. What I do for all FFs is save it at this point, fight the final boss, and then after beating the game I reload and then take on all the subquests.

There is indeed a movie mode, in the Sphere Theater in Luca, you can buy every movie, and every song, and you can watch/listen to them at your leisure.

Yup. Well, the replay value isn't all that great, but I loved it so much I played it at least 12 times. Now I'm going to see if it lets me play with the DDR mat.
The only thing that bugs me is you can't skip the cutscenes. I love them to death, but I've practically memorized them by now.

Yes I think it has great replay value. It would take at least 300 hours to get everything done.

No, you can't buy every song. But you can buy some that aren't on the OST.
For Example:
Can't: Seymour Battle, any Hymn of the Fayth
Can: Hum of the Fayth (Tidus hums the Hymn)

Tidus sings that!?I thought it was just some random SE exec.

The only thing that avoid you from playing is Tidus. :p And you can't buy Suteki Da Ne too eventhough, the FMV where Tidus and Yuna have their 'special moment' can be buy

I'm starting to like FFX back, maybe another replay will help. But I still hate Tidus and Rikku. Somehow, I'm starting to hate FFX-2 back.

Yeah, before I knew to start against Yunalesca's third form with zombified characters, repeatedly watching that (roughly) ten minute scene before the fight really started to get on my nerves...

What seymour battles aren't on the OST? There's a different one for every battle :P
I'm pretty sure Seymour's Last Stand is there, but I don't own it so I don't know.

There is no replay value in the sense of FFX-2 where you can start a new game and carry over stuff or anything like that, not legit or non glitching anyway.

Its a traditional "FF" in that the game obviously just ends like the rest, I wont spoil the ending but all I can say is that the FMV and CS in this FF are probably the worst I have ever seen when it comes to the 3d FF games in fact I found it very cheap end game only, not the other stuff when I saw the ending for the first time I felt empty, when I saw ff 8's ending and cs's I was blown away for a while, that does not mean I have anything against this awsome game which I even imported for the extras.

Now if you are playing the NA version, sadly there really is not a whole lot to do, side quest wise or stat maxing...even with a certain semi hard boss you can unlock in a place through capturing monsters.

If you have the Euro or Japanese version ( international since there are two jp versions ) then you get a whole new grid which is highly fun to play around with, this alone adds a more real replay value to the game because you can easily make people any job you want from the get go, however there is still lvl spheres in your way so its not 100% freedom imo...and you get to fight all the dark aeons and a final boss named penance, some monster stats are changed a little here and there too.

In the international version you are kinda forced to stat max your characters in order to survive, true there is zamato but that is the gimp way out, if you feel like taking a chance without using any strategy or skill, go ahead...your still a gimp^^

The last stuff obviously adds tons of hours more play ( I would say at least 50 ) with stat maxing, there are simpler ways to max them through tricks which I have not tried, either way int does add alot more value to the game, but compared to the extras in x-2 international these extras are just "good" nothing really great to be honest.

Take your time, enjoy the game and try to explore and do everything there is to do in the game, that is where you will get the most value over time.

Iv'e played FFx more than any other of the ff series. For me, after i finish the storyline i like to collect fiends and fight them in the arena. Also, I have started a few more games with a "challenge" such as fighting with only aeons, fighting with only Tidus, and fighting without ever using the sphere grid. That all adds a ton of extra fun to the endgame. :)

I think X has a great replay value. As someone mentioned, you may play 250-300 hours to be able to collect everything you want. I'm now on my third playthrough, and I still love the game - and the FMVs!
