Review: It's hard to write a review for this game. After all, it's Final Fantasy VII! What can I possibly say about it that hasn't been said elsewhere, and better. It's one of the few games out there that changed the face of gaming. It's the game that made Japanese RPGs accessible to US gamers.
The story? Pretty good sci-fi/fantasy mix. The presentation? Dated now but quite good for 1997 on the original PlayStation. The gameplay? Innovative and fun, neither too easy nor too hard for the mainstream gamer. An entire evening can easily disappear into this game.
Verdict? If you haven't played it, do.
