Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation 4

Final Fantasy VII Remake, which retells the story of the original game, follows Cloud Strife, a former Shinra soldier who joins the AVALANCHE eco-terrorist group as a mercenary to fight against the Shinra corporation, who have been draining the planet's life energy, only to become involved in something much bigger. Unlike ports of the original game released for computers and other high definition platforms, the game is a full remake built from the ground-up, featuring full polygonal graphics as opposed to the pre-rendered environments of the original.

Footage shown at PlayStation Experience 2015 demonstrated both exploration and battle mechanics, which both take place in real-time like Final Fantasy XV. Unlike the 'Active Time Battle' system of the original, the remake appears to use a real-time battle system similar to the Kingdom Hearts series, which allows players to freely control Cloud or one of his allies as they use their respective weapons to attack enemies. Players will also be able to use magic and summons, and a Limit Break gauge allows characters to perform more powerful attacks once charged. Producer Yoshinori Kitase stated that while the game has more real-time elements, there would still be strategic elements, such as selecting weapons and magic for each character to wield.

DisTorTion - Final Fantasy VII Remake Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of my most anticipated games of all time, when it was first announced in 2015.

Time Janitors and the weird ending aside, Midgar here is much, much better done than in the original. If the rest of the parts are this good, this Remake will be many times better than the original.

I just didn't give a 10 because I don't know what this new "addition" to the game will bring. It can either be an amazing new thing OR a really really bad. Otherwise that, the game is beautiful. Amazing music, wonderful character and ambient design, great character development and last but not least the best combat system! It truly is a wonder and a gift to old fans. Can't wait for the next one!

I don't see why it's as highly rated as it is. Has decent characters and combat, but the reimagined story makes no sense, many missions are designed in frankly annoying ways (padding, large amounts of backtracking) and most of the sidequests are extremely boring and lackluster. Not a bad game by any means, but not that great either.

This game is designed to be played more than once. Things will make much more sense the second time around. Characters look amazing and their voice actors went all in for them (played in English). The combat was fun, although aerial combat was rather limiting. The side quests were a bit of a slog at times, but when you look at the boss fights, main missions, interactions, and soft, yet important decision system, this game is one of the best Final Fantasy titles in my book.
