Product Description

Product Description

This is where the story of Final Fantasy 7 begins. It seems that an evil power company called Shinra has found a way to mine the planet's life energy, draining it from the planet and using it to control the universe. Fortunately, a resistance organisation known as AVALANCHE has vowed to put an end to Shinra's destructive practices. The story focuses on Cloud, an ex-soldier of Shinra, who teams up with AVALANCHE, and along the way encounters some very mysterious and powerful allies who help him fight against the deadly creatures Shinra has created to protect its empire. You, as the game player, will decide their fate.

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.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The enormous PlayStation console smash hit Final Fantasy VII makes a successful debut on the personal computer, converted beautifully by designers Squaresoft and Eidos Interactive. Gamers familiar with Squaresoft's popular Final Fantasy series should have little trouble grasping the seventh title's action-packed, role-playing game play. However, Final Fantasy VII's excellent documentation and intuitive controls ensure that beginners won't feel overwhelmed.

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

Pros:

  • Epic storyline
  • Well-developed characters
  • Beautiful graphics and spell effects
  • Complex magic system

Cons:

  • Dialogue can get cheesy
  • Weak sound
  • Frustrating interface

Final Fantasy VII is, in my opinion, just about the best RPG ever to be created. I remember when I first bought it on PSX and I didn't have a memory card (daft I know) I would spend forever playing it to try to get as far as I could. It's just so addictive. I eventually got a memory card and completed the game a few times, but not all the side quests, and still hadn't beaten Ruby Weapon or Emerald Weapon by the time I had sold my playstation. That is now my aim with the recently purchased PC version of it.
There's lots to do on this game, whether you are into snowboarding, motorbiking, battling or even shooting hoops on a basketball ring, this game has something to offer EVERYONE. You'll see reviews saying that there's 40-60 hours gameplay on this from start to finish. If you ignore the side quests you can do it in 24. If you fancy having a play it can be well over 100 hours!!! So start drinking lots of coffee, you've a lot of late nights ahead!!
Enjoy

I feel that the above reviews don't try to emphasize just how good a game FF7 is, and whilst I say this, I don't think anything I can say can improve the situation, because words are too primitive to describe it.
Five years ago, I sat in my classroom, arguing with my friends. My point was, and I was defending it wholeheartedly, Ocarina of time was the greatest game ever. However, an opposing friend laid his best card on the table. What about Final Fantasy 7?
"Yeah!" everyone shouted. "No way" I committed.
However, I ordered the quickly disppearing game and loaded it into my CD drive.
I never looked back.
This is not a game. It is a legacy. A legend. A story that defines everything we can feel as humans, and everything we want as consumers. Utterly satsified with this game, I want a sequel to its story. You are consumed by its emotion, hard core raw edge emotion. These characters are your friends, and you know them intimately. The story and the path you traverse with your companions is frought with danger, self discovery and surpirse. The whole way through you're learning about Cloud's past, and what can I say apart from, you actually can't wait to find out more.
When a certain character passes away in this game, you are devastated, because of the way it is presented to you, and because of the way you knew the character, and because of the way you know the other characters are all affected by the death.
It sucks you in!! You feel real emotions towards this! This can't be a simple game! This is fantastic!
Anything that can bring out an emotion from you should be commended, but this whoa.... commendations would go to a whole new level.
By the time you've endured the entire game, you feel empty, because there is a void in your life left by the game.

Final Fantasy 7 is by far the best game i have ever played. The graphics and game play were a phenominal breakthrough in technology and game creation. But this was not what made this game my favourite it was the detailed story line and massive computer generated world you could explore. This game has so many complex places, items, magic, and summons that playing the game two or even three times can reveal new locations characters and answers to previously unanswered questions. The PC version was released in 1995 and my 450Mhz processor and 8mb graphics card could just about handle it but don't let this put you off it will run on slower systems but it is worth the demand as the pc version has stunning graphics and movie scenes far superior in quality and design. In short i have played this game 4 times and i still find out new things and enjoy it as much as the first time.

This game was my entire life for over a month, I would come home and play it for hours, i can remember how extatic i was when i managed to escape midgar and found i could save any time, and the graphics of the videos that just shocked me to the bone, I cried when aeris died and i dont care who knows it, this is simply the best game, it's gameplay couldnt be better, the storyline is so far beyond words its amazing, and i feel i owe it to the makers of the game who brought me such an amazing game that i have to tell people about it, I've completed it six times and it still can make me laugh, cry and even feel the pure frustration that only dying to that boss for the 99th time, but all that just makes it sweeter when you do manage it, i can honestly say that for a month i was more part of that world than i was of mine, it is so far off the limits of even other final fantasy games, nothing can compare, if you own a PC or a PS2 buy it, and even if you dont buy a PC and then buy FF7, trust me it will be worth it.

Oh come on guys, you know the drill, it's Final Fantasy 7. During its release it was hailed as one of the best games ever made, hell some claim it's THE best game ever made. Even today everyone still remembers it well, spawning its own movie based on the aftermath featuring all your favourite characters from the game.

I was fairly young when I played it, probably in the low teens so I found the storyline almost impossible to understand, it was a bit like Alice in Wonderland, gave me quite a head trip. My friend (huge fan of this) tried to explain it to me but even today I find it a tad confusing.

What else can I say, it's got a deep storyline, characters with a wealth of depth as you confront the past of each one including your own, a frantic bloodthirsty battle system, and an event known as the saddest death of all time. It's a part of video game history so if you're a history collector when it comes to games, this is certainly one to have on your shelves.
