FFVII was always going to be hard to follow, but clearly, someone at Square decided that Final Fantasy VIII should be insane. The story of Squall, 90s angst personified, and his team of wanna-be mercs fight to save the world is off-set with genuinely interesting character growth. However, to experience this you’ll have to wrestle the junction system. 100 words are not enough to describe the of this maddening meta-magic management mechanic. Even with the remaster’s turbo-boosts, time that should be spent admiring the HD character remodels and classic landscapes of Deling City are spent toiling away within drab menus.
