Completed "Final Fantasy VIII" for Steam/PC
Game: Final Fantasy VIII
System: Steam (PC)
Total Score: 88/100
Value Score: 8.8/10
+Improved visuals with different graphics options
+Boosters which can make the game easy for those who do not want to grind (i.e. gil cheat, magic spell cheat, increase game speed, etc)
+The ability to play the game in SD similar to PS1 version.
+Chocobo World comes included digitally unlike the Japanese PS1 version which came separate via a separate piece of hardware
-Music uses midi format and requires modding to implement original PS1 version OST
-Control manual and tutorials have not been updated and use the keyboard's instructions regardless of whether using a controller or not which can lead to frustration through some parts of the game
-Cutscenes are in low resolution/standard PS1 resolution
-FPS in battles are still 15 FPS, 30 FPS in world map/towns and 60 FPS in menu just like in the original PS1 version
-Due to the game having higher resolutions, this can show the polygons/design flaws (this can be removed/fixed via using PS1 resolution setting - there's a setting which makes you play with original PS1 graphics)

I have to say I was excited when I got the chance to get this game and give it another shot. The last time I played this game was on my PS2 back in around 2004 or 2005.
Didnt really enjoy the game back then but having gone through it again have to say although I say I've gotten a better experience out of it (mainly cause I know how RPG games are played and what is needed to build a decent party set up) - I still agree with the flaws I blamed on the game.
For starters - the junction system is horrible and is the worst system since FF2's level up system. You equip spells to increase your stats which is great as long as you dont use said spells otherwise your stats go down.
Even if you use alternate magic - its pointless cause your physical attack can be raised to the max (255) to deal more dmg than what you can expect from even a Ultima spell.
Other aspects I did not like were the money system where you gain money based on your rank which can up or down depending on what you do in certain story scenes or if you take a test and pass it to increase the rank. This feels more restricted and not as amusing as it should be.
Although the original version didnt suffer from this - I have to say my main complaint for the PC version is the button prompts where it shows you some weird PC code "B1" , "B2" , etc which would make anyone confused unless you spend some time looking at the controls and testing each one out.
Good things to say about the game is the improved visuals, the boosters which help (I didnt use any though), the inclusion of achievements is nice.
My top 15 most played Steam games (as of July 26th 2016)
X is great though - I dont have the Steam version but I do have the PS2 version which I beat 15 years ago and the PS3 version which I plan to play in the future before I buy the Steam/PC version.
Wont get X/X-2 HD Edition on steam until its at least 50% or 60% off.
Bought PS2 ver for $50 and PS3 ver for $20 XD.
