  • Excerpt: The widespread success of Final Fantasy VII cannot be overstated. Though the backlash of hate against the game's popularity and its fanbase is notorious, it cannot halt the widespread love for the game.

Final Fantasy VIII

Playstation Illustrated
27 August 2005
  • Excerpt: Square is the graphics god. They own more SGI machines than anyone else in the planet, and my lord, they put them to good use. FF8 has some of the most gorgeous cutscenes in any game, ever. The dance scene will have your jaw on the floor.

Just RPG
24 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Review Date: October  25, 2002 Final Fantasy games have it pretty tough. They're often compared to other Final Fantasy games, which isn't an easy task for any game. A lot of fans, including me to some extent, found VIII a bit of a disappointment, but it's by no means a bad game.

  • Pros: Grand FMVs, Junction/Draw system is a great change of pace, Card Game is addictive
  • Cons: Drawing magic gets a bit tedious, Maybe too many menus

  • Excerpt: Since just about all of you reading this review are pretty familiar with RPGs, I don’t feel that I need to go into great detail about the big transformation for RPG’s. The “big transformationâ€� being the shift from 2D graphics to the world of three dimensions.

  • Excerpt: Once in a very long while a game comes along and pushes the capabilities of a home gaming console beyond everything that has come before. Even more surprising is when that game is on the oldest console that still has a heartbeat, the Sony PlayStation.

  • Excerpt: Jeszcze kilka dni temu, pisząc preview - ostatnie spojrzenie przed rzuceniem płyt na rynek amerykański, nie spodziewałem się tego co miało niebawem nastąpić. I oto w połowie sierpnia 1999 roku, dotarła do Polski gra, na którą czekały rzesze posiadaczy PlayStation .
