Final Fantasy VII review
Since its release in 1997, this game has set the benchmark for all other RPGs, since its release there have been until FF XIII until now in the series, but as the number of the series increases, there seems to have been some losses that have occurred. has made FF games less popular. So Square-Enix has been going back and playing its previous FF games for handheld games, but enough of the facts, let’s talk about the game.
When FFVII was released, it was the first of its kind, a 3D RPG that had one of the most detailed stories of its time, the main source of evil and enemies in this game comes from the Shinra company that controls a city where most of the people alive called Midgar. The Shinra company mainly supplies electricity to the city and other parts of the world with reactors, but the problem is that they make this electricity taking the life force of the planet (basically it takes the current problems with energy to the extreme). But in addition to supplying electricity, Shinra has an army of troops, the strongest being the SOLDIER of the first class, which are genetically modified humans who have been exposed to the life force of the planet and injected with alien cells.
These alien cells come from an all-powerful being named Jenova, who crashed to earth hundreds of years before FFVII. Shinra found Jenova and took her captive and performed various experiments, including creating a human from Jenova’s cells.
As every game has an evil guy in it, this game has Sephiroth, who was the best SOLDIER that ever lived, during a routine check of a reactor, Sephiroth walks into the nearby Shinra mansion and starts reading some books from the lab. Underground secret, one The book mentioned a son of Jenova who has superhuman physical abilities and who is the best fighter in the Shinra corporation. Sephiroth believed this child to be himself and took it upon himself to free Jenova from captivity and destroy the planet, but two Shinra stopped him. Zack and Cloud from SOLDIER (the game’s hero) and when Shinra learned of their victory they captured the two SOLDIERS and conducted various experiments on them until the day they escaped. But during their escape, Zack died.
FFVII takes place five years after Sephiroth was assassinated and you take on the role of Cloud, as you progress through the story, meet new friends and even some from Cloud’s past throughout the game, these friends will join you in the fight against Shinra and Sephiroth. The battle system is time-based, which means you don’t have to think forever about what you want your character to do, which keeps the action and pressure going over and over again. During battles, you have a wide variety of moves that update as you progress through the game. The main factor that affects your movements is the ‘matter’ that will allow you to cast a variety of magic spells, steal and even summon monsters. There is also a factor that can turn the tide of battle in the blink of an eye, this is called a limit gauge and it fills according to the amount of damage your character takes, when the gauge is full, you will be able to perform a Special move that deals great damage. Your limit move will update depending on how many enemies you kill and also how many times you use it, each character has about 8 different limit breaking moves and they are very different from each other, I’m sure FFVII fans will understand when I say “Omnislash Destroy everything !!!” Google it if you don’t know what Omnislash is.
As you can see from the duration of the review, FFVII was a very long game but entertaining nonetheless. Most PlayStation games usually have one disc but this game had three and since its release there has been what is known as a ‘Compilation of FFVII’ and in this compilation there is a fully animated movie (Not Cartoon is more like the real life) which was a huge success and also games that tell the story of Final Fantasy VII’s past and future and also stories of other characters, FFVII was so successful that there have been millions of requests for a remake of the game.
Even though it is a PlayStation 1 game, it is worth buying and is better than most games available today. It’s also my all-time favorite game, and Cloud’s rules!
Boydies Overall Score: 10/10
