As a kid, I played FFVII with my mother on the Playstation. It was a great experience and it stuck with me. Since then I have played the PSX version myself.
Now, I picked up this game for PC and it is even better. The game is visually much more clear, there is no lag, it retains the W-item(duping) glitch for those interested yet also removes other minor bugs. The addition of achievements is very fun and some are very challenging. The game also now features cloud saving(you can also save locally) and a game booster which gives you in-game items and materia.
Technicalities aside, the game itself is wonderful. It has a fantastic story that will keep you interested, and only gets better. There are many sidequests to entertain yourself with, super bosses and there are also different outcomes to certain scenes. Overall, to see every outcome for the influenceable scenes, you'd need about 3 playthroughs. The character customization is great, and something I really like. There are endless possibilities to each character's skills, or if you really wanted, you could make them all similar. The game usually takes 35+ hours to finish without stopping to grind.
I recommend doing a first playthrough with one as character doing melee, a mage and a healer and just enjoying the game once. Afterwards, go through another playthrough and get all the achievements and secrets.
One of the greatest games and RPGs of all time, for 12 bucksxAFBx | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all xAFBx's reviews »
Really if you don't know anything about FF7 at this point I'd be shocked. But I'll go into it a little. It's amazing. Tons of areas to explore, tons of optional missions and bosses that give you weapons for the final boss fight, an amazing story with really unexpected twists, romance/dating aspect, tons of minigames in a huge full blown casino-type place, really interesting characters and dialog, amazing music, amazing atmosphere, and for the time amazing visuals. You really can't go wrong with FF7. My only gripe is that this version is the one that syncs to Square's servers and it gets annoying when 80% of the time it can't connect and you have to wait for it to sync, which lasts maybe 45-60 seconds, then it says it can't so it was all useless. But it doesn't matter as long as you have your saves locally.
Possibly the greatest game of all time!ThomasG101 | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all ThomasG101's reviews »
I first had this game on PS1 as a child and absolutely loved it. Since then I've picked it up every 3-4 years or so and played through it again. Each time I play it I love it just as much as the last. Having this game on steam makes it so easy to just pick up and play whenever I want to.
This is basically the standard PS1 game with slightly improved graphics and HD text. The music has been changed slightly as well but is not something that has changed the game in any noticeable way in my opinion. I can't stress enough how good this game is but then again that's because I played it first on PS1.
If you are a gamer that has never played this game before try it. You may not get into it as the graphics may put you off, but hopefully you'll enough it the way I have. But if you're like me and played it back on PS1 and are wondering whether to buy it again to play on your PC then definitely get it. The memories it brings back are worth £10 anyday!
A measuring stick for all turn-based RPGsHelkaweth | Nov. 12, 2013 | See all Helkaweth's reviews »
Besides Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI, no game has ever made me love the turn-based battle style RPG like Final Fantasy VII. As far as graphics and sound, for it's time, was possibly some of the best I've ever witnessed. Even today, it's amazing to look at the polygons that make up each character.
The story is enthralling and massive. Like any RPG, you can choose to do some parts of the story or not. However, the overall theme is amazing and makes for a great tale.
Honestly, for the price it's usually at for download, it's a great buy. If you're hesitant, don't be, it's worth the money, but prepare to put in the time.

Everyone enjoys a good classic and this truly delivers. Not that much of a graphical improvement from the original but it's great to have on PC. Also as much as i love the characters it's always a blast to rename them to ridiculous things. I tried using my xbox controller to play which worked out pretty well but you can't really remap the buttons and there aren't any hints as to the controls while you're playing. Sometimes i had to restart parts because i simply didn't know what button to press. If you're playing with the keyboard the game is great about giving the necessary keys. Otherwise it's trial and error until you remember which one is which.
