game reviews from the older consoles

Final Fantasy VII

My first blog would be about one of the best known old school rpg’s of all time. Final Fantasy VII is unlike the previous Final Fantasy games – this one was the first to go fully 3D.

Story: 9.5

You start the game in Midgar. Rather big city surrounded by mako reactors which are built by Shinra inc. As an ex-soldier, formly working for Shinra inc. Cloud working as a hired mercenary meets up with Barret, the leader of the rebel group called Avalanche which main goal is to stop Shinra from destroying the planet.

Graphics: 9

Very enjoyable cutscenes but sometimes rather pixellated in game experience. Still very fun to watch.

Game-play: 10

Just as all the Final Fantasy games is the ATB battle system. Aside from that is the newly introduced ” materia” which basicly allows you to level up your magic and other attributes which allow for a very fun gaming experience.

Music: 8

Great soundtrack, just a bit annoyed with the battle sounds in some occasions.

Replay: 9.5

Replay values for this game are very high seeing as there are so many little things in this game that can be missed on your first play-through, going from important materia to one time only items. If you wanna get all of the stuff in game, you might have to replay it quite a few times. Even so this game doesn’t seem to get boring.

Overall Score: 9

Being the first rpg I ever played, this one has some amazing qualities, from epic fights to breath taking scenes that will amuse you for hours.
