Featuring seamless 3-D gameplay and animation, Final Fantasy VII contains hundreds of pre-rendered, computer-generated backgrounds and features real-time battles, vast map screens, and a complex and engrossing storyline. Published on three CDs, Final Fantasy 7 is one of the largest and most richly detailed gaming experiences ever created.
Players assume the role of Cloud Strife, a defector of Shinra, the evil corporation maintaining control over the planet. As the game opens, Cloud joins "Avalanche", a resistance group determined to foil the corporation's diabolical plans. Final Fantasy VII features an extremely complex storyline, offering many hours of game play (over 60 minutes of impressive cinematic sequences are also included).
Final Fantasy VII's gameplay involves exploration, puzzle solving, and real-time combat. Players control Cloud during exploration and take on additional party members for battle sequences, which include both fantastic weaponry and dazzling spells. While the graphics are top-notch--and support 3-D hardware accelerators to sharpen the character models--the sound effects won't impress many; Squaresoft made little effort to utilise a personal computer's sophisticated sound card to its potential.
Although deeply rooted in the limitations of the PlayStation console (limited menu system, weak music, no voice-overs), Final Fantasy VII's highly addictive, easy-to-learn gameplay should provide adventure and role-playing fans many hours of enjoyment. --Doug Radcliffe, Amazon.com

This is the best game with the best protaganist, the best puzzles and the best adventure. This is what gaming is all about and I'd wish they'd make another to match it.Published on 11 Dec. 2010 by sunnysideoflove
