5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic but watch out for the backgrounds, 20 Dec 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Final Fantasy VIII (Video Game)
This is a very entertaining game, I have completed it twice so far. The game is a Japanese RPG and has a wonderful love story and adventure theme. The artwork is stunning and the music is memorable but they have cut corners with the PC release. Instead of giving you high resolution background scenery they have kept the small Playstation backgrounds and stretched them twice as big to fill the screen at 640 x 480. When your 3D characters at 640 x 480 are composited onto the low res pixellated backgrounds it does not look very impressive. This is the only thing that lets the PC release down in my opinion. It will not stop you from enjoying the game but if you are likely to be put off by this then I suggest you get the Playstation version instead.
