Final Fantasy 7 Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "The original hyperbole of the experience still dazzles. As the gaming world marvelled at a new 3D dawn, Final Fantasy 7's stentorian soundtrack, epic summoning spells and soaring storyline seemed to draw itself up to the huge potential of disc-based games and 3D worlds. Today, those achievements stand, as does the memorable geography of the place. From the undulating peaks that can be circumvented in an airship to underwater caverns, explorable only via submarine, Final Fantasy 7's universe is as deep as it is broad - and as unforgettable as it is divisive." (Final Fantasy VII, PC) 8/10

9/10 IMO but if the graphics were updated then it would be a 10 out of 10 for sure

I have fallen back into love with jrpg's after getting a little burned out (didnt help that there was jack shit for a few years). Xenoblade, Kingdom Hearts DDD, The Last Story, and Tales of Graces F all in a short time frame. Xenoblade made me remember the awe of a massive world and epic sci-fi saga. The feel of knowing i was embarking on a daunting 100+ hour journey. The Last Story gave me the beautiful scenery (stargazers tower) and the romance ive missed since FFX. Kingdom Hearts gave me an overly complex nonsensical story that will take 3 more side games to explain (and plenty of zippers!). I popped in Lost Odyssey after none of these (despite how amazing they are) scratched the itch that games like classic FF's scratched. OMG its still one of the best traditional jrpg's ive ever played. I forgot how utterly beautiful the soundtrack was and the intro was the best intro of any game ever. FF needs to go back to the 7-10 days. Il have to settle for replaying this game on my vita for now and Lost Odyssey on 360. Hopefully Bravely Default is awesome and gets localised along with Type-0. Come on square!!!

Sure the game has aged quite a bit since its release in 1997 but it is still better than a lot of games we get today.

Final Fantasy 7 will forever be a classic & a game that made a huge impact in the game industry when it was released single handily putting JRPGs on the map here in the west.

nowadays it's all about greed. It's hard to get works of art like this anymore, SE should hold a fan competition where a group of fans can design the game.

This game sucked.

Final Fantasy 6 was much much better..

Can't forget Sabin supplexing a train.

FFVII + Xenogears + Suikoden II = the benchmark of JRPGs for me, those games represent everything that makes JRPGs so unforgettable experiences, greater than any movie or book, & any1 who have play & finish all 3 knows exactly why there is something in some JRPGs that u cant find in any other type of games, a once in a lifetime experience.
