      Changes in gameplay from finalfantasy7
      >normal sized characters
      >no more mp
      >satergies for an easier battle(when encountering the horse like enemies  
        hit he attack command fast ,this is to whack off the blade on its head {rduces damage}
      >summons now take time to charge
      >extrems of characters take different skills eg. (magic characters get 
        summons as thier special commands)
      >Buster sword non in the demo . Now the demo has much cooler blade ( the 
       gunblade ) basically a gun with the barrel joint to a blade like a sword.
        Magic in FF8

    Ps. I assume you are familiar with ff7 controls / gameplay
    On to the game.........
    Intro Movie
       The demo starts with boats crossing the sea . the sea turns into the FF8 
    logo squall comes out of
    the hatch of the boat . He looks at his map flipping a film of info down on 
    the map.You see your target.The boats pick up speed ,your boat broke through 
    the wall without damage(pretty durable boats.)and you see your men giving 
    you the "move in" signal.Boat slows down.
        Actual gameplay
    Part 1
    You come out of the boat with your companions.1 fighter guy with the whole 
    streetstyle clothing .1 magic type girl with ble elegant clothing.1 guy who is your superior in a trench coat.
    do the following steps after some speech.
    >follow the trench coat guy until a blocked off road
    >talk to him
    >fight the soilders that come out.>not too difficult.concentrate on killing 1 first. Leech magic from 
    >follow the guy
    >again fight more guys
    >stop at the fountain talk to him and choose either choice 
    >mover to the gaurd at the right side
    >kill him 
    >talk to trench coat guy and wait at left side road for a while.
    >more talk and scene started when you talk to the trenchcoat guy(notice what the wanker is doing to the poor dog , he even tries to slice at it)but talk to the fighter first
    >follow him
    Part 2
    >talk to him and kill the sub boss: a snake like character.
    --use magic gotten from the opponents often 
    --magic character>use summon spell( 3rd option on battle menu )
    --Squall  >magic from leeching
    --fighter >attack/limit ,low on life potion
    >follow the tench coat guy again
    >you arrive at the target area.
    >after ducking from gaurds view more speech.
    > make your way up via the elevator after fighting some gaurds.
    Part 3 
    Sequence of radar opened by scientist officer attracts some monster.
    >attack the guy untill a set amount of hp and than kill the monster that comes.
    >go downstairs.
    >hit machine that the guy activates untill it is down then hold L2+R2 to escape before timer
      goes to 0 and get away within that 15 second time limit.
    >He is just there to hinder you run like mad to avoid him
     At the end squall trips, barely making to the ship before themachine catches up.
    luckily the gunner shoots the thing which thankfully works.
    The ending credits roll as the ship goes off into the horizon.
