: : : : : Final Fantasy VIII

Background

You are Squall Leonhart, a "lone-wolf" and an outcast. He joins SeeD, an elite mercenary unit, and in order to graduate must help settle the war between the countries of Galbadia and Dollet.
After completing the SeeD test, he then goes on his first mission - helping a young woman named Rinoa Heartilly to defeat an evil President. But Squall soon realizes that there is a much bigger, and sinister, evil behind all this. Will he be able to stop it?

Gameplay

The gameplay of Final Fantasy VIII is slightly different from previous titles. Gaining magic is the most notable change. Instead of gaining experience and learning new spells yourself, you must "draw" your magic and spells from enemies and "draw-points".
Summon monsters are also back, but this time they are called "Guardian Forces". These Guardian Forces can gain experience points to learn abilities. It requires a lot of strategy, as you can only learn a certain amount of abilities.
