Square does it again!
Final Fantasy VIII is the eargely awaited sequel to the massive FF7. Has Square managed to surpass their previous masterpiece? Yes and no. The graphics have been improved, and the characters look a lot more realistic know. Square has decided to make the characters look realistic, instead of the manga-look of the previous Final Fantasy. The movie-clips are also improved. However, the story is not quite up to the standards set by FF7. The story is excellent, but not as interesting as in the predecessor. FF8 is still one of the greatest games ever created, and you would be quite insane if you refuse to buy this classic. 10/10

Trivia

The music in this game was originally composed and recorded as Dolby Digital 5.1, then "dumbed down" to normal stereo for the actual release. The original DD 5.1 score was rumored to be the one to be used in a PlayStation 2 re-release (see: Alternate Versions).


Quotes

Zell: Oh... sorry.
Squall: About what?
Zell: I'm sure you want to be alone with her... So, Squall... I never thought you were the roma... Ah, you know...
Rinoa: What about you, Zell? That girl in the library...?
Zell: What? I don't know what you're talking about!
Rinoa: All the girls in ...


Goofs

After Squall is dressed up in his uniform, he leaves his dormitory room located in the North area first floor of Balamb Garden and he leaves the North area. But when Quisits calls for Squall at the First Floor Lobby. Squall approaches from the South as though he's entering the school from the front gate.


Crazy Credits

During the end first half of the end credits we see a few minutes of "handheld video camera footage" taken during a party after the team's victory over the sorceress. At the end, just before the camera's battery runs out we see Riona outside pointing towards the sky. After the credits are done there is an additional scene.


Alternate Versions

Because it is illegal to posses Nunchaku in the UK, it is also illegal to have them shown in movies and on television shows. For this reason, Selphie's weapon of choice has been reclassified in the UK version as "Sticks of Death".
