A spin-off of the Final Fantasy VII RPG series, Dirge of Cerberus stars Vincent Valentine, and takes place one year after the Advent Children movie.

The third installment in the COMPILATION of FINAL FANTASYVII is unveiled! Following two other titles based on FINAL FANTASY VII BEFORE CRISIS and ADVENT CHILDREN the newest title in the series is DIRGE of CERBERUS, soon to be released for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system. The world of FINAL FANTASY VII comes to life once again in this multiplatform endeavor!

The time has come to cleanse this world. Hunt down the unworthy...and show them no mercy. Three years have passed since the events of FINAL FANTASY VII. Buried alive following the Meteor disaster, a mysterious group known as the DG (Deepground) Soldiers emerges and begins raiding the city.

The enigmatic Vincent Valentine is somehow connected to these attacks, and he may be the only one who can save this shattered world. When the world is engulfed in darkness, his gun will toll a dreadful dirge... Other characters from FINAL FANTASY VII join Vincent on his journey, and as the story unfolds, you will bear witness to shocking truths never revealed in the original game.

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
Revisit the world of Final Fantasy VII three years on from the end of the original classic game. Take control of the mysterious ex-Turk Vincent Valentine in this wholly original third person action adventure.

The lowdown:
Part of the “Compilation of Final Fantasy VII”, that already includes Advent Children and a mobile game, this is the first official follow-up to the series’ most popular entry on a home console. You may have heard though, that it didn’t go down so well when it was released in Japan earlier in the year. To Square Enix’s credit though the game’s being given a thorough revamp for its Western release so that it’s faster and much easier to control, with a lot more combos and aerial moves and a slicker first person view. The game was originally intended to be a role-playing version of Half-Life, so hopefully the new Western version will properly realise this goal.

Most exciting moment:
Shoot ‘em-ups like this are unpopular in Japan so just seeing a developer of Square Enix’s standing attempting a game like this is exciting. It even includes an option to use a mouse and keyboard as a controller, just like a PC shooter (although the Japanese game’s online mode is being removed).

Since you ask:
Apparently Square Enix see Final Fantasy VII (and XIII) as twenty year long projects so even after the Crisis Core game on PSP this may not be the last time you see Cloud Strife and co. in action.

The bottom line:
One of Final Fantasy VII’s most obscure characters stars in the most unlikely spin-off ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vincent gets his own game! 20 Nov. 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
For the unenlightened. Final Fantasy 7 was a MASSIVE game on the PS1, a game following a chap called Cloud and his friends taking on Sephiroth, and Shinra to save the world. One of those friends is a guy named Vincent Valentime, the main character of this story. An x-Turk (like a mob group for Shinra) and what happens after Final Fantasy Advent Children.

Basically, a group known as Deepthroat are seaching for the Protomateria to do something to a thing known as Omega-that is as much story as you get from me, I don't want to spoil anything really. Although you'll discover more about Vincent and Lucrecia through this game. The story line is sound, that's all you need to know really.

Graphically, we see the likes of Junon, the mansion in Nibelhiem, Midgar, Kalm etc in the game. For places like Kalm, you'd never know it was the same place if it didn't say so, but the Shinra mansion in Nibelhiem has the lot, from the piano from the original FF7, to the library at the very lowest part of the mansion. The detail is good, and the characters reflect this, but it's the FMV that stands apart being some of the best and most action packed I've seen on PS2.

Gameplay. It's a shooter being blunt, you guide the gun using the right analogue making the controls instantly accessible. You have close range and long range attacks, and you can upgrade your gun in terms of power, speed, accuracy etc. However, that's pretty much it. You shoot, you shoot baddies, planes, strange creatures etc. There are some class moments though, such as the drive to edge where you take on a tonne of motorbiked men, and the occassional, save the people section, or lead the child to this place to entertain you.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a review about the game?!? No way! 18 Nov. 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes that's right, I've played the game and I'm actually going to comment on the game itself. I know that's a bit of a novelty round here but I'm going to do it anyway.

Right well, first impressions after 12 hours worth of gameplay. There are a lot of cut scenes, and a lot of long cut scenes. We're talking Advent Children 2 with bits of game here and there. But that doesn't really matter because if you're a fan of FF VII you're going to love it.

One bug bear is the controls are a pain in the proverbials at the start, but there are numerous tweaks you can do to get them to your liking. After you're comfortable with the controls the game flows along nicely... until the next cut scene.

Square don't really do 3rd person / FPS games and it does show, there are some nice touches though don't get me wrong. The weapon customisation is quite good fun to play around with but the AI isn't that great we're talking AI levels from FPS games from yester-year. Still you've got a big gun and all you really want people to do is stand in front of you so you can shoot them isn't it?

The gfx are top notch, the FMV is typical Square quality - they're beautiful. Some of it is on par with Advent Children, which makes me wonder if they re-used any bits. The game takes you on a nice tour of various locations from FF VII, you'll recognise most of it, all looks pretty nice although some of the earlier levels are a bit drab.

The new bad guys, won't say much on them but how they bring them into existance works pretty well. Some nice boss fights, although some of them are a bit on the easy side. Voice acting on the most part is good, which is handy as you'll be hearing a lot of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A review from a rational FFVII obsessive 6 May 2007
By Syme
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I went against my instincts in buying this game, I'd seen the critical reviews it had got in the press, and I'm not sure I really approve of Square Enix's attempts to milk the popular FFVII franchise for all it's worth, but I'm such a FFVII nut I couldn't resist it, But fortunatley I was pleasently suprised with it. As a game it's a much more competent shooter than I thought it was going to be, and in terms of story it's much, much bigger than I thought it was going to be, and that's what I imagine most fellow FFVII obsessives are interested in, the story. And on the whole it's pretty good. As I'm sure you'll be aware it stars Vincent and elaborates on his past and explores his character which perhaps wasn't focused on as much as it should have been in FFVII. As for the other characters, Reeve/Cait Sith and Yuffie have supporting roles and Cid has a perephiral role, while Cloud, Tifa & Barret are just limited to a couple of cameo appearnces, Red XIII has no dialouge and just appears on screen for a second. It does all feel quite fan-fictiony and there's some elements in there seem a little at odds with the previously established FFVII world, but it's nothing too jarring, I think the keyword to think of it as is a spinoff and not a true sequel. The quality of the voice acting is a bit mixed, some of it's fine and some of it's just terrible. Read more ›
