First, I have read a few reviews where people have stated this is a remake. That is false information. This is the same game as before. SE did a terrible job on the port and while it's understandable to lower scores for it, I can't as it's my opinion this game should be played by anyone that is a fan of games.
The modding community has helped elevate this poor port and it really makes the game fun. Try playing with "Tifa's bootleg".
This game has everything and besides graphics, the game is timeless. The story is phenominal and you get completely sucked in. Battle system is fun as well as maxing out your characters.
While for some the graphics would be the turn off to buying this, I would highly suggest buying this game. After a few hours of story you could care less about the graphics.
Overrated, but still goodGosen | June 7, 2014 | See all Gosen's reviews »
It has been said a lot about this game.After years Square finally made a remake, which doesn't look any better than previous release, even music has no quality as original psx version. Graphics of characters was and is horrible, you can't get into game with Lego characters, sorry. Fortunately there is a mod who can fix it, as well as music, which after months is finally patched officially by Square. So before first launch if you have some patience game could look pretty good after few fixes.
I don't like fact that first few long hours you can't get out of the city, which is unlikely comparing to other FF games. There is more text than actual gameplay here, so forget about any freedom, you stuck here for some time. The story is not great as many say, but it's generally ok, has some nice twists, but that's it. In terms of gameplay materia is a nice tool for customization characters. It wasn't a bad idea, unfortunately game is not challenging at all expect bonus bosses, who are at the other hand extremely difficult.
Price is probably too high for such an old game without anything new. Only for people who haven't already played (if there are such) it. Then it's probably worth to see for yourself what's this all fuss is about.

FFVII has the best characters, best story, and best music of all the games. It is an RPG that other RPG's strive to be like. If you have not played it, you need to get it now. For a game this old, it still comes out on top of so many other games. Played this game when I was younger, and I still like it today.

For those who prefer their games as short and simple as themselves should not bother to waste their time playing one of the first oriental role-playing games that was successful in conquering Western market. Deep story, lots to do, unique style, long game, easy to play but tinkering for those who wish to succumb into it, humor and being damn playable are the reasons this game hasn't aged much in two decades. Go buy, this is common knowledge in gaming.
The 3rd person game has a kick of a Juno Cannon, able to throw back any weapon. It will infuse your cells with extra strength and your eyes will get a strange glow. You can wonder around as much as you like and do sidequests for all your appetite and go on with story whenever you feel like it. You cannot do everything in one take, so replayability is the kind of which leaves you divorced and homeless, which actually makes this game more dangerous than a sack full of drugs as both cause the same amount of addiction but Final Fantasy VII does not kill you. As a matter of fact the cruel game keeps you alive to play it again.
The graphics are naturally outdated, and the kinda childish look can repel some of the audience. If you can look past that, then there's a game with more symbolical reference and deeper meaning than most of the games nowadays combined. It is a subtle cry for nature and a hint of warning for worshipping technology. All wrapped up in one heck of a nice package of time well spent. As a bonus, included is probably the most controversial scene in all gaming that will drop your gum (about K-12, for those wondering).
On a side note, a warning for those who have already tried and liked the successor of FF VII: your family will be harshly neglected. There are no return tickets from the Gold Saucer. Nor Sunken Gelnika.
Legitimately one of the best RPGs of all time.Pokeheart65 | April 14, 2014 | See all Pokeheart65's reviews »
The fact that that a game from '97 is still talked about, reviewed, and critically acclaimed as much as this, you already know it's a good game. But it's not just that. It's not just great. It's not just amazing, it's perfect. FF7 will stand the test of time for years to come, and I want to make sure when I grow up, my kids will play this masterful experience.
