* 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.

Great Port, with One Flaw

I have been waiting for this to come out for iOS for quite some time, so I’m more than excited to finally play this. With that being said, I have one large complaint. I play this on an iPhone 12 Pro Max and it gets incredibly warm while playing. Has anyone else noticed this issue? If so, is it being addressed? Other than that, I’m so glad to have this game on my phone.

Favorite Final Fantasy, but underwhelmed.

This is by far my favorite final fantasy out of all of them. It also happens to be the first I have ever played. As stoked as I was to be playing it again on my phone, it is seriously under developed as a remake. Upgraded graphics, and playing it on my phone as opposed to an old console is great, but emulators have been allowing that for years, and with much better playability due to game hacking within the emulators. It wasn’t until i moved to IPhone that i lost the ability to play it on the phone. Adding a new game plus feature seems like it would be an easy feature to add to stand out above and beyond emulators. I don’t normally hack games, but I have spent 100’s of hours playing this game to have all cards, weapons, level stats, gf and abilities, and rare items. New game plus would make it so I don’t have to do that every time I want to play through again.

Having trouble starting

It's difficult to give this a fair review particularly because I've reinstalled the app twice so far and it will not play.

- iPhone 11 Pro Max
- ver 14.4.2

When opening the app you're greeted with the FF8 logo on a white background with the words "tap to play." Once you tap the screen fades to black for about 30 seconds. In 4 out of 20 attempts the app then crashed. In 3 a logo would start to roll on screen but would freeze before finishing the word and then stay locked up until the app was forced close. 10 tries the screen just stayed black. 1 try got to the second Square Enix logo on black background before feezing, 2 times the app made it to the "New Game, Continue, Credits" screen then when selecting New Game the app crashes.

I hope this somehow helps with diagnosing a potential bug with the app.

FF8 is one of my favorite in the series and it's one of the only games I can think of that ends in the beginning (though poor localization in the original release makes these dots difficult to connect). I'm looking forward to being able to replay.
