The former was released in theaters in 2001 and was written and directed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the Final Fantasy franchise.

In GameSpot's review of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Tamoor Hussain said, "Regardless of your history with the original game, Final Fantasy VII Remake is an astounding achievement. The wait for its release was a long one, but in gameplay, story, characters, and music, it delivers--the wait was worth it. For first-time players, it's an opportunity to understand why Final Fantasy VII is held in such high regard. It's the chance to experience a multifaceted story that grapples with complex subject matter, be in the company of memorable characters, and be moved by their plight. For returning fans, this isn't the Final Fantasy VII your mind remembers, it's the one your heart always knew it to be."
