Final Fantasy VII is the revolution of all the Final Fantasy games ever. The story line was simple and good. The world is in trouble you jump in and save it, short simple and sweet. This story may be used a lot but FF VII delivers with just the right sweetness. The graphics where stunning and the game play was never dull. The difficulty level was set for an average gamer making this the ultimate Final Fantasy game for beginners. Instantly you are thrown into combat without any hesitation.
The "materia" ability is great instead of all the magic being handed to you like the other Final Fantasy games you have to earn them by leveling up your magic. The game allows you to decide who’s your powerhouse, healer and mage instead of designating one for you. This allows a lot of freedom for the gamer to decide whom he wants to play which role. In most RPG's the ultimate weapons for each character usually can take several hours and a lot of painstaking tasks which can get annoying if you just want the weapon right away. FF VII gives you the ultimate weapons with out much pain involved and makes it simple for even the non-diehard fan to get all the un-lockables.
The characters from FF VII are very unique. From a man who has a gun for an arm (barret) to a stuffed animal that carries a mega phone as a weapon (Cait Sith). The characters support each other with humor and conflict. The love story between Cloud and Tifa is evident through out the story and plot line. Each character has a unique weapon and limit breaks in the game ranging from "Demon form" via Vincent to the best and most hardcore limit break Omnislash thanks to Cloud. It gives you a variety to choose from and allows you to say, "yea I wiped out the final boss with one move!"
FF VII is filled with side quests and mini missions for all to enjoy. From chocobo breeding to racing your little bird brain. The battle system is set to Active mode which means you cant just leave your guys in a battle while you grab that last Dr.Pepper in the fridge instead you actually have to pause it. This keeps the battle moving and keeps you on your toes. Monsters range from a little Solider to the Omega Weapon. They are unique and diverse and you’ll never know what you’ll run into after the screen fades to the battle.
FF VII is the revolution of all RPG's and should be praised among all games. It showed us even people who lose their memory can save the world with a giant sword and a stuffed animal fighting at your side.
