Probably the best game of all time, 5 July 2004
Good games are very hard to find today. However FF7 is more than just a good game. It is the type of game that will keep you engrossed for hours (my personal record is 112 hours on one file), and has a great deal of replay value. Yes it is a couple of years old, and the graphics look quite dated compared to newer games, the gamplay is unbelievable.
The story is your typical RPG plot: Big bad man wants to take over/destroy the world, with the main character being part of some resistance group etc.
I must admit, the first 30 mins of the game is pretty boring, and can get very annoying when you die and have to redo parts of it, but that is just the same as any other RPG
The real genius in FF7 is the whole battle and weapon system. Not only does the character level up, but so does the character's special attacks and his/her "materia" (an equipped item that allows you to cast spells), so your spells become more powerful.
Final Fantasy 7 is a really brilliant game. My copy got scratched beyond repair, and I must admit that I really miss being able to play it.
I would reccomend anyone to buy this game as it really is just that good.
