Final Fantasy VIII Walkthrough and Strategy Guide -

The game uses a system of summons similar to previous Final Fantasy games which are referred to as Guardian Forces. In addition to being a source of some of the ffviii guide lethal attacks, Guardian Forces also ffviii guide the ability to junction magics to specific stats and abilities allowing characters to grow.

Unlike many of the other games in the series, the cast of characters were designed to appear more realistic.

It differed just enough from its predecessor to make it a unique and enjoyable game without straying far enough from the FF formula to lose many of the nostalgic ffviii guide that fans of the series were hoping to see.

The most difficult area for the creators to follow up on for Final Fantasy VIII was creating a story as immersive and compelling as the previous title. I ffviii guide say that the writers and developers did a fairly good job of this - given ffviii guide difficulty of the task.

Walkthrough:Final Fantasy VIII/Paramina

I very much enjoyed the look and feel of the game. That being said, the story definitely lost its touch when it came to the final villain and primary antagonist of the story.

The majority of the game is spent focusing on Edea being the antagonist until later on when it is revealed that the primary antagonist is Sorceress Adel ffviii guide Ultimecia. Unlike Final Fantasy VIIwhere a ton of time ffviii guide devoted into building the story around the main villain Sephiroth and the reasoning behind his actions, this game spends very little time delving into the story behind Ultimecia.

Final Fantasy IX suffered from a similar problem.

ffviii guide It is explained in the game that the use of Guardian Forces causes amnesia as one of the side effects of using them.

The worst part is that there is really no reason for it; the story would have worked well all the same if the main characters did not have amnesia and did not rediscover that they had all grown up ffviii guide an orphanage together.

The flashback scenes involving Laguna were insanely boring. All that said though, these are small marks on a relatively solid and entertaining story and cast of characters.


The graphics are, for the most part, exactly the same as the graphics in Ffviii guide Fantasy VII except for the more realistic appearance of the settings and characters.

There are a lot ffviii guide cinematic sequences throughout the game which add a very nice touch to some of the more important ffviii guide of the story the dance scene in Balamb Garden was a highlight.

I noticed there were quite a few walkthroughs listed for VIII, albeit the majority are In Progress, which is why I thought I'd start my own - yep, with that elusive Complete glowing green sticker of success. If you don't like this walkthrough ouchI recommend you check out Drake 's walkthrough or Super Sephiroth 's.


Besides, bashing ffviii guide its fun. Having to replay so I can write this is pretty rough, but at least the soundtrack makes ffviii guide vaguely do-able.

But hey, let's grit our teeth and get through this together
