Jason says, "Did I miss an integral part of the poster child FFVII story? Yes, yes I did, and I’m absolutely glad they remastered this game. Not only did I also get to play it on a handheld to indirectly relive its own glory days, but I did it in remade graphics and modernized combat changes. You could call this a borderline hybrid between a remaster and a remake, but therein lies its rough flaw: there are many remnants at its core that do not stand the test of time and firmly remind you this game is 15 years old. Have I said 15 years old enough times? If not, then that’s the rundown: this is a good game that should NOT be missed by anyone who likes action RPGs AND the FFVII world because it fills in important gaps in character arcs. But its age reminds you that we’ve come really far in how we build our worlds and animate in real time."

This title will get you infinite attention on Twitter, I am not so sure about here tho
As an adult, and like most adults on this site (I hope), I don't "ship" make believe characters.
lol, I've been saying the same thing forever, even before I played Crisis Core. Mainly because it's all about Cloud and Tifa,
But what I find ironic is how so many of the Cloud and Aerith shippers are the same ones who are apparently super moved by the Aerith and Zack relationship. It's like they're double dipping. Pretty spineless if you ask me, it's no surprise those are the people who don't understand the Cloud and Tifa relationship.
Who's getting shipped ? Is there some sort of stock issue that occurred. Not enough shipments to fill demand ? No orders shipped. Idk, I'm confusion
I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn't. The battle system is fun, but Zack annoyed me so much that it was making me feel embarrassed when he talked. He's so cartoony in a way that's off-putting. I also couldn't stand Genesis when all his responses were quotes from a play. Angeal was incredibly anemic as a character. I did like seeing Sephiroth as a "good guy", but he doesn't really show up much in the game and when he does it's... a little shallow. Cloud was completely off and it's weird knowing the character that he will be in FF7 is so different than his portrayal in this game.
Cissnei, I thought was actually genuinely a cool character and hope to god she's in Rebirth.
The music I also thought was bad, especially for an FF title. You have a lot of generic rock and most tracks are forgettable. The only one I liked was the desert area theme.
The level design is really poor. Yes, I get that it's a PSP game, but my experience playing it I felt there just wasn't much to the environments. I also felt the 300 missions recycling 3-4 maps become boring.
I don't want to be all negative. I thought the cutscenes and summons were cool.
I love FF games and adore FF7. Loved the Remake and that battle system and characters. So, I really went in this excited and just felt extremely let-down. I even listened to the original PSP voice actor and I get it, he was waaaaay better. This new guy is just awful as the voice and character.
