I seriously couldn't thing of anything or anyway to put down this game except for one little, minor, not really problematic issue, and this is the fact that the enemies and bosses level up as you do. I really don't know why this version of the game got such a low rating, but I still love it no matter what others thing of this game.

Finally, the graphics, they are superb, they look great and the characters are full of expressions, I like the grahics in FF VIII then the ones in FFX. I can't express how much I love this game with words, but this is my favourite game so far.
