* Entering or leaving vehicles such as cars and the Garden may occasionally get your character stuck between the vehicle and terrain features, or freeze the vehicle in place. This seems to happen more often when you leave your vehicle in close proximity to impassable terrain, or when you try to enter or leave your vehicle during certain scripted events. Currently, the only fix for this is to reload a previously saved game, so please make sure to save your progress often.
* Some locations may be difficult to navigate using the Speed Boost (x3). We advise you to turn off this feature in such cases.

Ratings and Reviews
The footsteps aren’t as annoying as I remember.
I played this game in 1999 but the footsteps aren’t as annoying as I remember. In fact, I’m 3 hours in and have discovered a new found love for this game that I didn’t have originally. I think back in 1999 I was so in love with FFVII that I didn’t give it a chance. The battle and junction system is deep and interesting. Plenty of hours gameplay with wonderful character graphic improvements and fantastic music score. It’s definitely a classic and worth playing. One thing that bothers me greatly though is the fact the pre rendered backgrounds have been sadly overlooked, not been improved and they are not full screen. I love the artwork and think it’s a core feature to the Final Fantasy games and hoped that Square Enix would consider fixing and replacing this. Some scenes are just really low resolution, blurry, pixelated or a little washed out and it’s hard to make out what you’re actually looking at. Therefore I give this game 4 stars as I feel a little cheated. That being said FFVIII is still a classic game and up there with the best in the series!
A long time waiting
Finally, Final Fantasy VIII gets a release on mobile - completing the set from 1 through 9. I’ve been waiting so long for this one to be released and glad to see it out there now, but I’m bemused that there’s no cloud save support despite all the others having that facility; even FFVII on iOS has cloud save support, and that’s basically just the PC version running in an iOS window container.
Please could we have this functionality implemented here too?
A long wait rewarded
This is a great port of an underrated Final Fantasy game. A great love story wrapped up in some tremendous world building and political shenanigans. There are also tons of secrets to uncover. 70+ hours of gameplay at least and the best soundtrack in the series.
The story goes that Square Enix lost the original files to the game so the backgrounds had to be ripped from the PC version so they are lower resolution than IX but better than VII. This also prevents the game being widescreen. It doesn’t have controller support or cloud saving yet either.
