Final Fantasy VIII – Steam | Mini Review!

What is it?

Final Fantasy VIII is a JRPG released in the late 90s by Squaresoft, and re-released on Steam a few years ago. It tells the story of Squall, and his SeeDs fighting against Sorceress Ultimecia and her ultimate goal of time compression.

Pros
Cons
With mods, can look nice.
Chocobo World is a great addition.
Interesting story.
Best card game in any video game.
Junction system is a fantastic mechanic.
Extremely easy to cheese the game.
Without mods looks horrible.

Verdict:

It’s a damn good game, probably my favourite of the Final Fantasy series, but given the remaster is due for release before the end of 2019, you’re better off waiting for that. It’s a fantastic game and the remaster will be well worth purchasing.
