What Gamespot Users have to say about Final Fantasy VIII
Put quite simply, Final Fantasy VIII is one of the best games I've ever played, and is the best in the series.
This review is bound to be a controversial one. SquareEnix’s Final Fantasy 8. When SquareEnix released this game in late 1999 it became a huge hit, selling well over 6 million copies, making it a Greatest Hit, and also f... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
The long awaited sequel has finally arrived and it's loaded with a few big guns. As a lot of people know this is one of the highest anticipated sequels to a RPG of all time. So Final Fantasy VIII had some big shoes to fi... Read Full Review0 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Many people have found this game to be a failure. But in my eyes, it is one of the most enjoyable in the series yet!
This game was the first Final Fantasy that I beat for the Playstation. I loved every part of it. And it has nothing to do with how great this game was. Many afternoons after school I would sit and play this game, and ... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Extremely problematic, Final Fantasy VIII does not deserve anywhere close to 9, as it's the worst Final Fantasy to date.
Final Fantasy VIII was one of those few games that after I've heard of it and watched a few of it's FMV's, I was doing about anything possible to get my hands on it. How I just beat Final Fantasy VII a little while befor... Read Full Review2 of 7 users found the following review helpful

Square slams the PS with one of the biggest RPGs ever. As good as it gets, it does not live up to Final Fantasy VII.
I think by now it's safe to say that when it comes to RPGs there's everyone else, and then there's Square. No other RPGs at this point have ever approached the Final Fantasy series because it is the benchmark which all o... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
What a roller coaster ride. Emotional, Epic, and Breathtaking. This is one story you will not forget.
I've been looking for a game like this for awhile and I found it FF VIII. I thought nothing would come close to FF VII, but VIII nearly did. As soon as I saw the opening FMV, I was hooked. This game was like a movie: gre... Read Full Review12 of 22 users found the following review helpful
