one of the best RPG's ever made

  • Summary: I got sucked into this game. If only all rpg's had characters you cared about and story lines that draw you into another world. The music was great and the cinematic CG movies were so beautifully done. I think I shed a little tear when I beat this game because I was sad it was over.

  • Summary: Nothing can compare to your first love. I remember playing this game as a young child and realizing my destiny in life. I went to bed that night a boy and woke up the next morning a gamer. FFVII remains a classic and I enjoy it every time I revisit it for another playthrough.

  • Summary: I used to sit down and watch my dad play this game when I was a youngster it had me hooked I thought the guy with the huge sword looked awesome. Everything about these Final Fantasy games are awesome they have really great story lines and good graphics for the consoles.

  • Summary: FF:VII is my favorite game of all time. This is the game that cam next, and it's a good RPG no doubt, but it plays alot slower and is encumbered by an annoyingly over complex junction system that tramples the fun. Story: Good stuff like always.
  • Pros: Awesome audio, Engaging story, Loads of content
  • Cons: Doesn't live up to expectations, It's boooring

  • Excerpt: Thinking all the time, never saying a word. Looking miserable, wearing awful black clothes. Being rude to people, mood swings. Remember when you where a teenager? Perhaps you are one, and that is why Final Fantasy VIII is a hidden gem, concealed by the fact, hype and fans of 7 & 9.
  • Pros: Replay Value, Length, Story, Soundtrack, Difficulty, Dialogue
  • Cons: Age Bracket, Addictive, Dated Graphics

  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy 7 as many people before me have said, defined RPG gaming for the 3D era on PSone, it also brought scope to future instalments and ideas for further developments. One of these developments were the Graphics, although VII's backdrops and towns were beautiful in their own way, the blocky...
  • Pros: Graphic enhancements, The sheer size of the game and Map
  • Cons: TOO EASY !  !  !  !  and at one point it looks like squall is typing into thin air lol on the ragnarok
