A masterpiece for its time, Final Fantasy VII set the benchmark by which all other RPGs should be measured.
As a story-driven RPG, Final Fantasy VII is unparalleled, creating a world that combines magic (materia) and technology into a super-plot to save the soul of a planet.
Following the protagonist Cloud Strife, the story of Final Fantasy VII initially introduces a group called AVALANCHE, an eco-terrorist rebel organization who sets out to save the planet from Shinra, a mega-corporation who is harvesting the planet's "lifestream" as an energy source. As the story progresses, Cloud and his allies become entangled in a much larger world-threatening conflict that pits them against the game's antagonist, Sephiroth.
Accompanied by a soundtrack delivered by Nobuo Uematsu, Final Fantasy VII combines epic music, stunning visuals, and extraordinary gameplay into an unforgettable experience.
