Final Fantasy 8 Reveiw

Ok, this is gonna be a long one, compared to the others, this game is pretty complex. Ok, first of all, to explain the junctioning system. The junctioning system is a system quite like materia but different because you use magic to raise your stats, moreover lowering it like in Final Fantasy 7. Then also to use magic at all, you have to have one or more summon junctioned to the character that you want with the magic. The magic system is a system that you have a certain amount of spells, yet you draw it from the enemy, instead of learning it like the materia system or buying it like in 5, or even just learning it by level like in 3 and 6. This may all seem confusing, and believe me, once you get the system down, it's simple. You draw magic from enemies. Ok, the story line is worse than FF7's, it's so freaked up that I didn't get any of it, and I don't think I ever will, so I'm not going there. The graphics were excellent, if nothing else. The music was intermediate. The overall gameplay of this game is 5.6 out of 10, because it's not really what you'd expect in a Final Fantasy game.
