Final Fantasy VII review

Review date unknown

James Gordon says: "Starting with a beautiful opening cinema, FF7 quickly jumps into the action with nice polygons and beautiful, pre-rendered backgrounds. In-game spells and attacks look great, especially the cinematically perfected summon spells."

Final Fantasy VII review

Review date unknown

Lassarina Aoibhell says: "Final Fantasy VII was Square's first attempt at a Final Fantasy for the Playstation. As an RPG, as a game, I suppose one could classify it as average. But given that Final Fantasy has a history of truly extraordinary games, ''average'' is hardly a compliment."

Alk31997 says: "Final Fantasy VII will empower you; it will place a fireball of compassion and grace in you heart. The fire will enhance and grow.

Billy_theMonkey says: "A pivotal thing happens at the end of the first disc of Final Fantasy VII: Aeris, a central character, is killed by the main villain, who evidently falls out of the sky or something. Such a reveal might be labeled as a major spoiler by some, but seeing as how itís likely the most widely known plot development of any video game in history amongst the gaming communityÖ Well, if you didnít know about it, you probably donít belong on a site like this in the first place.

mariner says: "When it comes to hyped up games, you will often get a polarizing effect amongst the people who play it. Most will call it the most perfect game ever, while a select few will claim the game is absolute rubbish and not worth touching. And these people have every right to believe so, of course. But why is it that there are so few people, or at least so few reviews from people, who enjoyed the game, thought it was cool and fun and all that, but didnít really see it as excellent? To me, FFVII is a gr..."

princess_heather says: "Iím sick of people praising Final Fantasy VII as the quintessential, ultimate RPG. Sure, itís great and all, but seriously this game was easier than my roommate (and take my word for it - she is the loosest gal youíll ever meet). It lives up to the quality and craftsmanship weíve come to trust Square will deliver in every title, but it doesnít even take a trained chip to plow through this adventure. "

psychopenguin says: " The stars start to come out from beneath the dense air of the night sky. The camera pans around the entire area, showing a magestic view of a grand city. The words ''Final Fantasy VII'' are shown, displayed prominently in the logo of the game. The camera then swoops down, where a moving train is shown. As the train pulls into the station, a mercenary, formerly of the group SOLDIER, runs off the train. You have the chance to name him. After naming him, he encounters a group of soldiers. Were th..."

ratking says: "Final Fantasy 7 is the Ultimate Console RPG ever created. The storytelling is superb, and on the cutscenes are very good for it's time. Final Fantasy 7 had alot to live up to, sense Final Fantasy 4 and 6 were such great games, and well in my Final Fantasy 7 was equal too, if not better than both of them. At first I played through the PC version and beat it there, however my friends owned the Playstation so I gave a look through it, so I could fairly review that version too. "
