Nice prequel to one of the best RPG's ever made. Even if u hav yet to play the original it wont matter.
I remember in the ps1 game seeing a secret scene in the shinra mansion which showed me the ending of crisis core. even knowing the ending, i cried . I couldnt believe it...me... a athlete crying to a video game... ive never cried to a video game before...not even when aerith died that jus shocked me more than anything.
alot of action (fast pace) makes the gameplay hella fun, only one time during the side missions (which hav 300) hav i encountered where i had to do alot of button mashing, but after u complete normal mode and try hard youll be dodging and using a ton magic.
the difficulty is just right, normal mode actually feels normal and hard mode actually feels hard (cant explain it any better :P) Summons and limit breaks are back all do to the DMW (roulette spinning thing in the top left corner of the battle screen)
The creme of the crop. THe main reason why u should play this game. Square turned the little secret cutscene from final fantasy VII into a full 20 hour epic story for on the world. Youll be playing as Zack Fair. Zack is a shrina soldier trying to get ranked as soldier class 1 (i think thats wat it is called) wat will soon come is a epic story about love, friendship, and honor.
No surprise. THe graphics look lik they came str8 outta a ps2 console. THe CGI sequences are beautiful and the real time facial expressions will leave u in awe. THe backgrounds r both familiar (from the original ff7) and new with lots of detail. The cover of the case was simply awesome, i believe that those who no nothing about final fantasy and look at thisa cover will consider looking into the game.
Remixes from the old game and new songs left me tapping my feat and humming to the beat, while it wasnt enough to make me download it to my ipod :P
Overall: those who liked the original ff7 should ABSOLUTLY get this game. New comers will also love this game and maybe even get them to play the original
