Final Fantasy VIII is a brilliant, beautiful RPG with hours and hours of gameplay, and while not quite as amazing as Final Fantasy VII, it is a magnificent, worthy sequel, that any RPG fan should love.
Triple Triad was such an awesome addition.
Agreed. I loved how transforming the cards allowed you to get Lionheart on the first disc and get powerful magics for your junctions early on.
What?? Are you serious, I never knew that and I've played FF8 tons of times. Damn, gonna have to find out how and play it again now.
The soundtrack throughout the game was amazingly beautiful. Nobuo Uematsu is a GOD.
How can anyone disagree with this? Uematsu is a musical genius and FF8 reflects this as good as any of his work.
I don't care for disagrees. At least my bubbles don't go down for them. :P
This is my favorite FF out of them all. I really enjoyed the story and characters. Also there was nothing better than tapping the hell out of square button for a boost in the GF power. Also this had the best GF which was Quezacotl.
Quezacotl is nothing next to Knights of the Round materia.. that's the most epic summon of all time for me.
yeah it was good my squad was always squall, rinoa, and irvine my guys were already always overpowered by the end of the first disk because of darkside and junctioning powerful magics on my attack and hp loved the game though
Best FF ever made...
I remember playing this game alone at night as a teenager thinking that time.. GRAPHICS CANT GET BETTER THAN THIS! Thats how great this game was for its time back in 2000
I hear you WitWolfy, I was the same, remember that when i saw the FMV(cinemas) or CGI how ever you call them, and thought "ingame graphics will some day look like those CGI" and look at these times... ps3 pc 360... Love my games!
My favorite game of all time.
What's this? A game other than that other FF getting great marks? Unheard of! Seriously, though, this is still my favorite FF of all time. If it weren't for this game, I would never have wound up enjoying FF or JRPGs at all. The only game I've continuously owned longer than FFVIII is the first Gran Turismo.
This game arguably had the most epic and beautiful opening cinematic of all time as well.
Bad review score.. FF8 deserves 11/10.. it's perfect in almost every possible way. Easily the most memorable gaming experience of my teenage years.
My favourite final fantasy of all time.
My 2nd favourite FF of all time. Lionheart, one of the best limit breaks ever.
My favorite final fantasy and one of my most loved games of all time
I remember playing FF8 for the first time and ignoring the card game because i thought it was just a useless mini game. Then i read a guide years later and was like 'seriously!?' Played it again, this time doing the card game and suddenly the game seemed a lot more awesome lol. The only thing i disliked what trying to get the Queen of Cards to move to specific locations.
