5 stars"

This game is incredible in so many ways. It has the best storyline and best characters of any of the FF's. Squall ISN'T emo! He's a legend. Zell is another great character. FF7 was good but the graphics were so bad! FF8 was my 1st rpg and after over 25 others, its still the best. Its beautiful and touching and I think of it all the time. FF7 had a lot of that weird asian influence which was actually nostalgic and innocent. FF8 has a little of that influence but not too much. If you look at any of the new age FF's they have none of that. They are just out to look good with their pretentious characters. Maybe I was just young and impressionable but I still think FF8 is the 1 and only. I'm gonna show it to my kids when I'm older and let them experience it like I did.
The scene in outer space when Rinoa and Squall are floating is so majestically melancholic…

"One Of The Best RPG"
5 stars"

It was a mistake to sell the one i had, which repeated for 3 times. But finally on 2007 i bought one more and im not letting it get away. Its too great as it can be used on consoles from 3 generations.

"The best Final Fantasy game!"
5 stars"

I loved this game!! This was the 3rd Final fantasy game I played, and I found this the best! Such a moving storyline. The graphics are a bit ‘boxey’ but then again I am comparing this to Final Fantasy X-2 which is a PS2 game. The cut scene graphics were amazing, and just so moving!! I actually taped those scenes because I loved it so much! Story was fantastic. Played it about 3 times, and considering doing it again when I have the guide book.

Worth the money!

"i still love it"
5 stars"

a played this game when i was 10 years old. poor graphics. good storyline. they should continue selling all final fantasys. its just good for money every cent is worth it. if you charge $200 i would still buy it. It's not the dough It's emotional

"Great but a few snags."
5 stars"

This is a great game. Has better graphics than FF7. Compared to the PC version, this version has better sounds and higher quality textures. FF8 features the all new Junction system allowing you to specificly balance your players stats to get optimum results in any situation. The ATB (Active Time Battle) system makes battles much more tactical than just slash and kill. But now onto the snags. This game does not have a great life if you are hard to please and only 20 percent of players end up finishing. Your main player is emo XD. Its also pretty jap styles and can be embarrising when a mate is in the room, Exposing you as a sissy at the wrong times. All and all i give this game… You know what? It dosent deserve this but, 5! Just to see if it will get a full fiver! Plus, I had the game upon release and i still have it. Good game. Good fun. Good life. GREAT RPG!
