You have no business playing this game without having played the original ;D You miss SO MUCH if you have not played and beaten original 7 and seen Advent Children as well - oh yeah, and probably having experienced Crisis Core as well. To get the full experience, you really need the complete backing! My favorite thing was that in the very end, when Cloud is facing off against Sephiroth again at The End of Creation is that, if you pay attention, the two nebulae featured in the background both resemble Sephiroth's final forms from the ending of the original FF7 - much moreso the big, beautiful, blue-white-gold nebula (Safer Sephiroth) than the black-red nebula (Bizarro Sephiroth). A neat thing. Also, in the same cinematics, if you've equipped the Buster sword, you get to see two iconic moments that hail back to the main menu screen of the original FF7.

Some help for those struggling to understand the games ending without OG spoilers.. This is based on what you see in the game. - Soldier candidates are exposed to Mako to enhance their abilities but they do say that it doesn't suit everyone. - Hojo is Shinra's main scientist so therefore would be involved in these enhancements. - Cloud has his mental breakdown when he sees Marco (number 49) in sector 7. - Cloud has same breakdown when he sees the robed figure in sector 5 with the kids (number 2). - Cloud has mental breakdowns when he sees Sephiroth but for the majority of the game he is hallucinating. - Red XIII explains his name is an identification assigned to him by Hojo. Coincidence? Probably not. - Red XIII explains The Drum in Shinra HQ is a project Hojo has spent his life working on. Jenova is there and there are pipes connected to all of the pods which house monsters. - When you defeat Jenova she transforms into Robed Figure 49 (Marco) before fading away. - When Cloud climbs the ladder to the top of Shinra HQ after Jenova, Sephiroth flashes into Robed Figure 2 before jumping off with Jenova. - If you Assess Jenova in the boss fight it says that Jenova causes illusions. So what's real and what's an illusion Joe? Think about it. - Sephiroth seems to want to break away from 'destiny' and uses the team to help him at the end. - Aerith and Sephiroth at the end seem to know a lot more about 'destiny' than anyone else which eludes to some sort of connection between them. - Zack overlapping with the gang in the end is a clear indication that it's happening in a different dimension/timeline. - The harbinger of fate boss shows that the arbiters exist across time and space and when defeated you see a huge explosion not only in this time/dimension but where Zack is with a recovering Cloud. Roll on part 2...

I think the game even acknowledges its padding areas when you go back to the sewers and have to chase something down. Some of the padding in Wall Market is great, but some of it when you have to revisit areas is kind of a pain in the ass. I think they did it so they could give players areas to level up and grind if they wanted to.

Didn't get around to playing the original, and the Aerith introduction part is BRUTAL. Slowed the pacing down to a halt... From a spec ops operation to picking flowers for an orphanage at a snail's pace... I'd rather the game be 5 hours shorter and skip the nonsense and fetch quests.

I know it was going to be impossible to please us all. But it couldn't have been much worse for me 🤷‍♂️. From the cebeebies tone which clashed with the swearing and everything being massively oversexualised, to the story forgetting everything that made it memorable in the first place and robbing impact from everything (nevermind that ending), to the "is this ALL they did??" size of it. Pointless, lame padding, awful sidequests, average at best graphics, and a huge lack of actual gameplay. If this was the same game but reskinned and named, i would give it 2/10. It earns zero points for nostalgia. Wont be back for more ✌️

So classic mode is basically FF13 gameplay? To hell with that. That gameplay sucked and so did FF13 and their sequels.

No classic mode is just super easy mode. They cut all the enemies life in half and they do less damage. Normal is basically too challenging so I'm sure they added in an easy mode during testing lol

You do know that side quests were part of the original too right? You do know that there are obstacles in the original too right? You do know that this is how the original should of looked like but they just didn't have the resources right? You do know that they are just following the original story right?
Ramza 3 månader sedan
@D0MiN0 No, your argument does not make sense. How are you supposed to know the level of resources 25 years or so in the future?
D0MiN0 4 månader sedan
I'm sorry but that argument of "This is how the original was supposed to look" 25 years later is rather ridiculoius. Why make a game in the first place then and not wait until more ressources are available? See how flawed that logic is?

Look...am I too old or something? Does the modern gamer DEMAND that you use every single button on the controller constantly with any game that you play? Are games too boring or dumb if you don't? I guess I'm just too old, because I hate this game. I stuck with it for 30 minutes, but between those stupid alternate modes, the constant need to dodge and block, regular attacks versus sustained attacks, ATB gauges (which I can't even figure out how they work and where), how ridiculously easy it is to take damage... Hell, I didn't even make it to the first boss and I was done. Anyone want a physical copy of this game? They go for a good price now online, don't they?

That moment when you realize the Remake is actually a battle between SquareEnix and fans: Whispers of Fate = The purists of the OG FF7 who are upset with the new storyline and are fighting to keep the timeline intact. Sephiroth = SquareEnix who are changing the timeline to his/their liking. Cloud/Barret/Tifa = The newcomers who are playing the Remake with no knowledge of the OG and just like the three characters are being given glimpses of the future and the past. Aerith = The players who have been wanting for a long time for Zack and them to survive. She's also indoctrinated Marlene and Red to work with her on this.

IMO the side quests that are necessary are so short (like maybe 15 minutes), and are a great way to balance out the fact that you kust finished a super action packed segment and now you're calmly walking around. Also, walk with Aerith, easily one of the best segments in the game, great for character introduction to new players and expansion to original players. It really sets their relationship perfectly and is a fine example on how they "padded" the game with great story and dialog between the cast

I found the filler content to be rather pleasant. They let us spend more time with these awesome characters and the small banter during filler sections and otherwise is just so much better voiced than in text boxes and lets them develop where they otherwise wouldn’t in the midget section. But I totally understand why people would rather have the pacing of the original ff7.

Never played any of the Final Fantasy games, pretty sure Kingdom Hearts 3 doesn’t count, but I’m very interested in buying this at $50. Wait, why did they drop the price by $10? Works in my favor but when have they ever done something like this for us? I smell conspiracy.

it's a 9 for me. The sidequest undoubtedly were filler and didn't need to be in the game. however, most of everything else was Killer The Aerith rooftop stuff, for example, was one of my favorite parts of the game. as for the OG, I haven't played it in 15+ yrs but has always remained as one of my most treasured gaming experiences.

Spoilers!!! But I have a theory! The game itself is almost like a sequel to the original. It's called a remake for obvious reasons although, I do believe the ending of the story left it completely open to a whole new story line. The whispers literally are there to stop Sephiroth from changing the past (the results of the original) and failing to do so. With an open mind you can actually say that FF7 remake could be sequel to the og. Sephiroth goes back in time to remake the results different to the ones from FF7 og and succeeds. We clearly see both Zack and Biggs survive at the end, two actions that didn't occur in the original. With all this being said, I don't think a full back story to Sephiroth is needed at this point, if my theory is correct. After all a mysterious villain is always interesting and the story is still being expanded. He's character can always be build up more for newer players in the upcoming installments. So do y'all think this could be a potential sequel to the OG?????

I get the sense that some FF hipsters lower the games review score just because the original is “overrated” and there are better FF’s out there. Jahns complaint of game being longer is also silly. It’s a remake... they expanded a 5 hour part of a game into 30-40 hours.

I think most people were expecting a remaster with some cover up on the plot holes but it's actually the true definition of a Remake. I also agree that at some points people will be "What the hell is this?" new players I mean but that is also to create expectation of something that might happen in the future games.

"Sometimes the characters your not controlling... they can be idiots." You mean EVERYTIME.
Charles Johnson
Charles Johnson 6 månader sedan
@SgCy So you're telling me that they purposely designed the AI controlled characters to stand around and do nothing? Or stand in the corner? Or ranged characters to run into melee? Or melee characters to STOP attacking once you temporarily switch from them to run and stand beside the ranged character that you just switched to to build ATB? This is 2020 and you can't even set basic parameters like you can in EVERY other action RPG. Simple things like: setting parameters for AI controlled party members to target the player target, stay at range, fight in close, ECT. Saying that the "AI isn't supposed to win for you" implies that in ALL other action JRPG's your (the player) actions really don't matter because if you put the controller down the game will just play itself and win. Come on now. Don't make excuses they dropped the ball. And they probably will patch it eventually. This is an action RPG with 'some' turn based elements. If the player was meant to control EVERY minute action they would have just made it turn based.
SgCy 6 månader sedan
This because youre supposed to switch between characters a lot. The AI isnt supposed to win the fight for you.

this game is beautiful. I enjoyed this much more than the original. I felt the characters were a bit more developed, I grew attached a lot more to the side characters. all the characters I find more likable. I never used Barret originally, but in here, I'd have him in everyone of my comps. even Cloud, I was never that much of a fan of his character, but I found him much more likable in this, more humanized. would love to see Final Fantasy VI get this treatment

Chapter mother fucking 8. Walk on the roofs, walk through town, walk here, walk there walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk. By the end of the chapter, I wanted to smack the shit out of Aerith. Chapter 8 officially made me ship Cloud and Tifa. Seriously terrible fluff job on that chapter, especially on second run.
D0MiN0 4 månader sedan
Cloud x Tifa = best ship! I couldn't stand Aerith in the original all too much either, and I'm having a hard time with her this time around as well, but at least we get to spend more time with her (maybe a bit too much?) to make somewhat of a deeper connection -- I think that's what they were trying to do. In the original everything felt a bit too rushed emtionally and the connection Cloud supposedly had to her didn't really come across for me (granted, I was only 12, so maybe that was it). Can't say that I was too sad about her perishing in the original, I was rather pleased to not have her around constantly.
