MEGA MIRROR: Final score.

SPANNING four discs and over 100 hours of gameplay, SquareSoft's epic Final Fantasy VIII has arrived for the PlayStation.

The new role-playing game follows the No 1 smash Final Fantasy VII and features eight playable characters, including the hero Squall Leonhart.

It boasts new weaponry, new spells and a god-like character called the Guardian.

It also features a new menu system that allows you to customise the skills of each character and the gameplay is cut with eye-popping computer-animated sequences.
