4.0 out of 5 stars A great Japanese RPG, fan or not of Final Fantasy VII !!!, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII - Platinum Edition (PSP) (Video Game)
I must be honest with all of you, I bought my PS2 (that can play PSOne games) in 2001 and a platinum copy of Final Fantasy VII and I still(as May 2014) haven't finish it ! Not because it's a bad game, but simply because I continued to buy new games and stupidly not finishing the older ones( I'm cured now, finally finishing games I bought more than 10 years). Because like it or not, Final Fantasy VII is still considered one of the best videogame and JRPG of all time, very influential of the "2D to 3D" age of videogames of the late 90's.
And this game, as a prequel for FFVII, is the place to begin the love for a classic and the reasons are below :
Pros:
- Beautiful and detailed graphics, even for PS2 standards.
- Great real time action combat (its not turn based combat, as older Final Fantasys) with a slot-machine system that automatically spins as you get 10 or more "soldier points" by defeating foes, for great special moves (the famous Final Fantasy limit breaks), if you get same three numbers or pictures and even if you don't, you'll get temporary combat bonuses, like invincibility.
- Great emotional story(It begins seven years before the original FFVII and you play as Zach, a "SOLDIER"(an army for Shinra, the planet's biggest private company) member, tracking some missing companions.
Cons:
- As a usual problem in some JRPGs, the combat that is a bit easy, can also get repetitive after a while, but the story will make you almost forget this problems.

In the "Final", this a game for Final Fantasy VII fans, as the classic characters, like Cloud, Sephiroth and Aerith, will make your heart pound and melt once again, and game for newcomers, as one of the most beautiful and engaging RPGs on the PSP !
