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!


Final Fantasy VIII is a PSOne game playable on your PlayStation 2.

Squall, a member of an elite military team, is forced into a conflict beyond imagination. To survive he must contend with a desperate rival, a powerful sorceress and his own mysterious dreams. Final VIII contains realistic detailed characters and background graphics, a breathtaking musical score that enhances game play. Final Fantasy VIII is another great edition of the Final Fantasy series of games.

Note: Final Fantasy VIII can only be saved to a PSOne memory card. It will not save to a PlayStation 2 memory card.
