The memory of the star that threatened all burns eternal in our hearts. In its wake came an age of silence. Yet with each fond remembrance, we knew those encountered were not forgotten, that some day we would see them again. Perhaps it was no more than wishful thinking. But after the long calm, there are the beginnings of a stir. The reunion at hand may bring joy, it may bring fear, but let us embrace whatever it brings. For they are coming back. At last the promise has been made. Expand

    The legacy of the legend created a new legend. A Final Fantasy for the current generation of players from the veterans of video game history with an eternal glint of exceptionality. [Issue#303]

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is the best JRPG from Square since Final Fantasy VII. It takes a classic, carefully builds on it, and although certain changes made to the story may not be as well-received by all players, overall there's no denying that it's a massive success.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is the piece that knew to blend the past with the present. What Square Enix has done is cause for celebration, as it has been able to fabricate everything we imagined and the vision we had of the original more than two decades ago. Easily, Final Fantasy VII Remake can give modern makers a lecture on how a remake should be done. The adventure that started in Midgar relives again and has surprised us again.

    Final Fantasy VII is an ambitious retelling that updates its systems and story for the modern era. The new battle system is fantastic and does a superb job of blending strategy and action. Additional stories and character moments are appreciated, and the way each character is portrayed is perfect. Some technical aspects could be better, but if future installments maintain this trajectory, we can all rest easy.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is a great game, excellent, even, for today's standards. And for the most part, it is exactly what fans have been asking for during the past ten years. But the truth is that this isn't it; this isn't the game that was promised.

    A staggering reimagining of a genre touchstone, FFVIIR makes improvements upon the original in many areas but is similarly harmed by some uneven additions

    Final Fantasy VII Remake manages to balance the introduction of new concepts with faithfully recreations of the original game’s most memorable aspects, but it also unnecessarily pads out this first installment in a larger story with too much downtime between its most striking moments.

The remake is the first portion of the original game due to how big the original game was. The developers really wanted to add to the experience that's why they've added so much more lore and events!

    The Remake has genuinely improved on the original by fleshing out the story and the characters especially! The music is something else too... some of the best arrangement I've heard in a long time!

    It's not a perfect game, its not even a perfect remake but it definitely doesn't deserve a bad score.
    The story is extended maybe too much and some new characters shouldn't even exist but I think most of the game is positive, especially the combat system and some changes to equipment system.
    If you are a fan of the game from the beginning just buy it, we waited too much time for this to throw it away with bad reviews, they will improve on the second and third based on this one, believe me

    El gameplay lleva las peleas por turnos y las modifica para derrotarse en tiempo real con total libertad de movimiento que despliega un espectáculo visual sin precedentes todo esto sumado a grandes y profundas mecánicas RPG atraves de el sistema de materias que usaba la entrega original a través de los 4 personajes jugarles nos da variedad tanto que pasamos de barret atacando a distancia con contundencia y luego está tifa que sorprende con ataques cuerpo a cuerpo con un profundo sistema de combos genialmente desarrollado, Aerth atacará a distancia y servirá de apoyo al grupo , mientras que Cloud llega con un increíble sistema de ataques a corta distancia que combina dos posturas por así decirlo, la presentación visual de él videojuegos es increíble e impactante pero aún así no se puede evitar notar algunas texturas de muy baja calidad y npc que parecen sacados de Playstation 3 sin embargo el juego corre sorprendentemente fluido en ambas versiones de el Playstation 4 y la pro. Luego están las increíbles batallas contra jefes finales cada una de ellas presenta una mecánica difiere te al enfrentarlos y puedo decirles que no son pocas
    Sin duda uno de los mejores RPG actualmente en el mercado y un videojuego increíble en todos sus aspectos

Combat is interesting and some battles will require some strategy and skill, but some can be reduced to button mashing. I will say that some of the dialog can be cringy but hey, it's a jrpg so that is to be expected. Since each entry is its own contained story, this is a great way to introduce a noob to the FF franchise. Expand

    Uninspired and mundane side quests drag out a game that never needed to be this long in the city of Midgar. Lacking voice over work along sideUninspired and mundane side quests drag out a game that never needed to be this long in the city of Midgar. Lacking voice over work along side stereotypically dumbed down characters hurt the story's progression. The battle system is a major let down as well. To sum it up, it isn't a bad game, but it absolutely was not worth the wait. If you buy this, expect Kingdom Hearts meets Final Fantasy Xv, and not in a good way. It's a hollow lacking package wrapped in lovely graphics and beautifully orchestrated music. Expand

    That ending is so cringe.

    Even by JRPG standards, this game's story would be weird and convoluted. But I guess you can never doubt Nomuras

    Even by JRPG standards, this game's story would be weird and convoluted. But I guess you can never doubt Nomuras ability to turn a straightforward and well written story into a bloated mess.
