Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has done a great job of bringing a great game from the archive back into the forefront. On first impressions, you might not be wowed exactly by the remaster job, as some graphics look great and some still look like as they did on the PS1. But it has allowed this great Final Fantasy story to be played by both old and new fans of the series as well as allow inexperienced players a chance to just enjoy the ride.
There’s a big argument that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered on Xbox One isn’t a true remastering. Some things are haphazardly ported over, and it’s the same gripes with the recent Xbox releases of VII and IX, though at least the music restarting itself isn’t an issue here. But then on the other hand it feels like a bit of a forgotten gem – we never thought we’d get a modern release of the game, and I am incredibly grateful that we have. Final Fantasy VIII remains as divisive as ever, but now fans have a way to decide for themselves without sourcing an older copy.
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered mejora los modelados de los personajes, mientras que los fondos prerrenderizados apenas se han tocado. Lucen menos pixelados, pero más borrosos que en el original. En lo que respecta a la jugabilidad, Square Enix mantiene el sistema de combate, y por lo tanto, los errores que siempre se le han achacado. Sin embargo, incorpora algunas opciones interesantes, como la posibilidad de eludir todas las luchas aleatorias o de aumentar la velocidad del juego.
