After multiple false alarms by Square-Enix, the re-release of Final Fantasy VII for PC has finally seen the light of day. Unfortunately, it appears to be an extreme bare bones rehash of the original PC version released in 1997.
Impressions of what? Its Final Fantasy VII.
Impressions of the fact that this is a terrible product which spits into the faces of PC gamers everywhere. Absolutely nothing has been done to enhanced the audio or graphical presentation. Couple that with the stupid DRM and install limit.
Square/Enix standard operating procedure then.
People were expecting more than just a re release. I am not surprised since the Japanese gaming industry has run out of money and ideas.
Wow, this is pretty bad, even for S-E. I know they're more focused on money than game content now, but this is a pretty pathetic cash in of a great game, and a lousily implemented one at that. I'm glad I still have my original PS copy sitting in my rack. That and I can play the true to form original on my PS3 and PSP, and hopefully soon, my Vita.
That's sad I was hoping they would at least optimize it for the higher rez screens of today. It's not like they even had to overhaul the graphics! Just simply allow anti-aliasing, and higher screen resolutions. It seems SE disappoints yet again.
Hopefully SE will throw it on Steam eventually.
ummm, it has zero jaggies, it is 1000x more crisp, way better colors http://www.youtube.com/watc... hows this game look on console right now, ohhh, yeah,....thats right, terrible; http://www.youtube.com/watc...
You mean it looks like the PC version of the game that's been out since 1998? Hell, if all they had done was optimize it for widescreen resolutions and touched up the sound fidelity, I probably would have been on board at $9.99, but they apparently just re-released the 1998 PC version of the game with a bunch of DRM BS tacked on.
I just remember the terrible midi soundtrack. If they didn't correct that, then no sale.
They did not, but some replacements are available here - : http://www.gamefront.com/fi... 100% better.
Everyone keeps begging for a FF7 HD Remake, but when the original is released on PC, everyone complains about it not having anything special. Jesus. Gamers are fricking greedy.
This is not an HD Remake. This is a poorly done port from 1997.
I didn't say it was. My point was that people should really only be expecting something "fantastic" from the FF7 HD remake, not a port. There is no such thing as a poorly done port. A port is a port.
Well, an HD remake and repackaging the original are two distinctly different things. Not to mention SE is rereleasing the flawed PC version, 15 years later, with those same flaws that crippled the original. Which begs the question: Why even bother? Answer: A cash grab. You're correct, people have been begging for more FFVII (among other things), and SE has ignored them to their detriment for many years. Now that they finally do throw us a bone, they manage to find one of the select few ways to satisfy absolutely no one, and piss off virtually everyone, by doing what they do best: ignoring fan feedback.
Hmm so seems we are better off with the the PS1 classic which can be played on the PS3/PSP and soon Vita. Where we will not need an internet connection at all to play the game. Sad, as I was thinking about getting this and putting it on my laptop so I could easily play it anywhere but since you have to login first I'll just stick to my PS1 classic that I bought from the PS Store.
From what i heard they tried to make a hd version for the pc but they kept melting them lol
