About this game

Developer: Square Enix
Content Rating: Teen


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. Both are equally at conflict with each other as their country is with Galbadia; to others, Squall appears lacking in team spirit, while Seifer lacks the discipline of his rival. However, a chance encounter with the free-spirited Rinoa Heartilly turns Squall's universe upside down; having thrived on discipline, Squall find the carefree Rinoa fascinating.

The magic system is one of the worst in final fantasy history but at the same time it is one of the best. Story was legendary and it is one of the best Final Fantasy games out there.

There is a lot of good here, but there is also a lot of bad, and the low quality music is one of the more prominent negatives; if Square Enix fixed that, then this would be much easier to recommend. As is, it's still worthy of a recommendation—but only barely.

Et si le moins convaincant des Final Fantasy de l'ère PSone était pourtant l'un des meilleurs de la série sur PC ? Faute de concurrence frontale, c'est vrai, mais aussi parce qu'il repose sur des mécaniques méprisées par la modernité, Final Fantasy VIII est une onde de notre adolescence, et un témoignage intact de ces années perdues pour le jeu de rôles japonais.

In conclusione questa versione di Final Fantasy VIII è un "must buy" per tutti gli appassionati della serie, proponendo la stessa identica esperienza dell'epoca a un prezzo accettabile e con qualche piccola chicca in grado di accontentare anche i fan più accaniti. E ora, dopo i remake del settimo e dell'ottavo capitolo, non ci resta che sperare in un "remake" del nono.
