It is a time of war. Galbadia, a Global Superpower, has declared war on Dollet, a country whose training academy is home to two personalities: the hot-headed Seifer and the 'lone wolf', Squall Leonhart.Read full description
Final Fantasy VIII is a game that combines authentic and very different characters, a well-thought-out and interesting fighting system and, above all, an intriguing and outlandish story, which will always be worth playing through and interpreting differently each time. For the time, the graphics were just great, especially the pre-rendered scenes and the incantation of the Summons/Eidolons (here called G.F.s). I would also like to mention the enthralling mini-game Triple-Triad as a special point of interest. This game has fascinated me from the beginning, even if it is not necessary involved with the actual storyline and even today I would try to get all the special cards in my playthrough without hesitation. The eighth part of the series has been available on Steam for a while now. Even after multiple playthoughs, it's still a blast to play. Anyone who is not frightened by 'obsolete' graphics and is a fan of RPGs, this game is simply 100-fold recommended.
Final Fantasy VIII is very similar to its little brother, Final Fantasy XV. Both are games that mix Fantasy with the modern era, both have unique casts of characters, and both get trashed on by the general public. However, they are actually great games. Final Fantasy VIII puts you as Squall, as he works as a mercenary for SeeD. You get involved with a war between an empire and a resistance, and uncover more as you go.
Final Fantasy VIII is a famous game from FF franchise, where you control a man named Squall which is not your average hero. This game, in my opinion, is unfairly underated, probably because its spell system: you need to extract spells from enemies (or from some places) to use them, you don't have SP here or learned spells. And this is true too for summonings, too: a summon can be extracted from a tough enemy, so if you defeat that boos enemy without extracting the summon, bye bye chance to summon that "esper" (I don't remember how they are called at this game, FFs keeps changing how the summons are called). Probably another reason people don't like this game too much is the growing of the characters and the inability to earn money from battles. You earn money only through a kind of "allowance" which you'll periodically earns depending of your level. And there's some boos battles which didn't give you any exp points, only items. However, I enjoyed the story, the graphics and the plot of FF VIII. The characters are really nice, too, every one of them with different and unique abilities. Anyway, I recommend FF VIII for any RPG fan, specially FF ones.
FINAL FANTASY VIII is one of the best, not the best jRPG I've ever played. The story, the music by Nobuo Uematsu, the characters, the fighting system, the climate everything in this game is amazing. Final Fantasy is an unusual and magical game with fresh gameplay mechanics, it's simply magical, not to mention the ending which provokes reflection on what happened! Solid game!
The first Final Fantasy i ever completed, and it's my favorite. I've played many others but never completed them, this one personally took my attention the most. The protagonist of this one, named Squall Leonhart, (or Leon if you've played Kingdom Hearts) is a bit of a downer. He doesn't care about feelings too much, but this game sure has character development. All the characters and areas you visit are memorable, and the story is interesting. This game also offers "interesting" theories. Play the game to learn about them, this game is just an adventure. Just get it.
