Classic RPG Games Review - Final Fantasy 8

I'm gonna review one of my favorite classic RPG game, Final Fantasy 8. Keep reading...


Thestory of FF 8 is not too complicated like others RPG games such as Xenogears and Chrono Cross. You play as Squall Leonheart, a group leaderof future mercenaries who has mission to stop an ancient sorceress and save the world from destruction. Unfortunately, the story doesn't develop well.

It's all about love

The love story between Squall and Rhinoa is very famous, it could be the main story of FF 8.

FF 8 Characters

*Squall Leonheart

A very handsome 17 years old boy. He is antisocial person and only cares about himself.

*Rhinoa Heartily

If Rhinoa was a real person, she could be the prettiest girl ever!!

*Quistis Trepe

She is a complicated girl and it seems that she also loves Squall.

*Zell Dincht

Squall's very best friend. Unfortunately, he is an impatient person.

*Selphie Tilmitt

A transferred student who always looks happy. She has a cute face and funny weird hair.

*Irvine Kinneas

A cool cowboy with cool weapon. But the truth, he is weaker than he looks.


*Thebattle system of this game is very unique. Unlike FF 7, you no longer can get money after defeating monster, but you can get it from your job.The most interesting of this game is you can summon some big creatures called Guardian Force (GF). They will help you a lot in defeating monsters and bosses in this game. There are so much GF in FF 8 world, ittakes hours if you want to collect all of the Guardian Force.

*No armor you can find along the game. And you must upgrade your weapon periodically.

*Each character has no special magic since magic is an item in this game. But you can get magic by stealing it from the enemies.

*Junction system

Youcan add certain magics to your weapon (such as firaga). It is much easier to beat the game if you know how to master this system.

*Thestrongest boss in previous series, Ultima Weapon, also appears in this game. Make sure you have reached level 100 if you want to fight this boss.


Unlike FF 7 and FF 9, the characters in FF 8 look realistic and very detailed. The game backgrounds also look so cooland amazing. And the best part is the opening FMV. (it could be the best opening FMV in the playstation console)

If you are a classic RPG games collector, you should add FF 8 to your list.

Thanks for reading my review...

Classic RPG Games Review - Chrono Cross

In this article I'm gonna review my favorite classic RPG game, Chrono Cross. Keep reading... Chrono Cross is the sequel of Chrono Trigger, Squaresoft's legendary 16-bit classic game. I played this game when I was still 14 years old. For me, this is the best RPG game ever made of all time. And I am sure if most gamers who have experience playing Chrono Cross are agree with my opinion.


The story of this game is pretty unique, just like squaresofts other RPG, Xenogears. Serge, a cute looking boy finds himself trapped in another world. In his quest to return home, he meets with kid, a rowdy adventurer. Along his journey, Serge will reveal the answer about his true identity and his ultimate destiny.


The battle system offered by Chrono Cross is very unique and innovative. There are several elements in the battle system that makes this game unique such as fields effects, stamina points, innate attributes and element grid. The better you master the battle strategy, the easier you beat the enemies and bosses.

Chrono Cross Unique Features

*Different from most RPG games, you can see the enemies very clearly on the screen.This feature is first time introduced in Chrono Trigger.

*You can escape from any battles, even from bosses!

*40 playable Characters In this game there are more than 30 playable characters with their unique stories and abilities.

*Forget about ugly looking enemies and bosses in other games. In this games, they look cool and amazing.


Thisgame's pre rendered 3D backgrounds is probably the best in PlayStation console, even if it is compared to Final Fantasy series. Chrono Cross also offers great variety of detailed, colorful and pleasing environments.


Yasunori Mitsuda is the maestro behind the sound making of this game. The sound is the best aspect of Chrono Cross. The whole soundtracks are new and unique while some of them are rearrangements of Chrono Trigger soundtracks. Never call your self a real RPG gamer if you never play this RPG game. Thanks for reading my article.
