Latest Microreviews on Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VII Review written Sunday, December 29th, 2013 at 03:57 pm.
The most in depth, complex storyline I've ever played. Absolutely incredible, where the superb writing leads you to form connections with the characters, even peripheral characters, in turn leading to an amazing fantasy world full of laughter and tears!

Took me and my older brother a year to complete this game, just such a deep and engrossing story filled with twists and turns. Combat system throughout the game is incredible, especially summoning.

I hated this game initially. I'm now ten hours into the game, and am loving every minute of it. The characters are interesting, the combat is fun, and the music is fantastic.

Excellent JRPG, even though I played it nearly 15 years after release. Great characters, plot, music, battle system... I could go on. While there are parts that don't hold up that well and the plot is a touch flawed, I still love this game.
Final Fantasy VII Review written Saturday, June 1st, 2013 at 09:45 pm.
In my opinion, the greatest Playstation game, the greatest Final Fantasy game, the greatest musical score in a game, the greatest JRPG, and one of the single greatest games of all time. It was a true adventure with a fantastic story and cast of characters that you really cared about and wanted to see to the end. Not to mention one of the greatest villains in video games along with one the most shocking scenes and plot-twists ever seen.

Perhaps the greatest Final Fantasy ever made? Also the first one to use 3D graphics and my god did they look good back in the day!

See? Now are you Final Fantasy VII fans happy and gonna leave me alone?...No?...Well, tough s***! While this game does sorta deserve all the praise it gets, it borders on the abyssmal lines that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time does. I get the usual story: "Dude, f*** you, I grew up with this game and Ocarina of Time. You're just a hater who wants to be "unique" and "different" from the crowd who "knows" how to rate a game the "right" way." Well, ya know what? Maybe you're right, but the point still stands: I cannot see why this game is regarded so highly, so I'm afraid I just can't give it any higher of a score than 7/10. If you don't like that? I'm sorry to hear that, but be happy this is even on my list "at all".

The first game that really got my lost in a virtual world through convincing atmosphere and imagination.

Best Final Fantasy Game as far as story goes. I love the materia system and just how bad ass you can be at the end of the game.
