Excerpt: Ahh, Final Fantasy VII . Quite possibly the most popular game in existence. Its fanbase contains more raving lunatics than any other game, and any attempts to disparage what many consider the epitome of RPG gaming can be assuredly met with vicious insults and possibly egregious bodily harm.
Excerpt: In an effort to create a series within a series, Square Enix has expanded on the PlayStation title Final Fantasy VII to bring about the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII . This compilation has seen the release of the CG movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children , the PlayStation 2 third-person shooter/RPG Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII , and the Japanese-only release of the episodic mobile phone game Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII .
Excerpt: Just over ten years ago, the most popular Final Fantasy title to-date was released in North America: Final Fantasy VII . Its success has yet to be matched. So much so that Square Enix created a foursome of spin-offs around this single title. The first was the mobile game, Before Crisis , followed by the movie, Advent Children , then the PlayStation 2 title, Dirge of Cerberus , and finally the PSP game, Crisis Core .
Excerpt: Few role-playing games have left a bigger footprint on the industry than the influential, instrumental Final Fantasy VII . You can't toss a Buster sword into a crowd of gamers without hitting a few who'd call themselves true fans, and it's nearly impossible to find a player who isn't at least vaguely aware of the title despite the fact that it came out eleven years and two hardware generations ago.
Conclusion: I can probably go on to make more assumptions about Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII , but I'd rather beat the game before I say anything else. I can't say that the concept of the game is anything new, but hey, people still buy first person shooters. I'm fairly certain that I like the story and the control scheme, otherwise I don't think I would have put so much time into it.
Excerpt: I just finished Crisis Core, and I mean ‘just’; I put down my PSP and opened Word on my laptop – I didn’t even get up. Before I go any further, I’ll say this: Crisis Core is an extremely difficult game to review fairly. Like a lot of people, I loved Final Fantasy VII on the original PlayStation.
Excerpt: While the rest of the world is either playing or waiting for Halo 3, I decided to take the Japanese version of Crisis Core : Final Fantasy VII for a spin. Being a huge Final Fantasy fan, I've been waiting for a proper FF VII sequel for years and I'm not even counting Dirge of Cerberus as one, since the title disappointed me.
Pros: - Small issues with the camera angle, - Tends to turn into a button mashing affair, + Great DMW system, + Superb storyline and excellent graphics for a PSP title, + The Materia system is back!, + Excellent soundtrack, + Emotional cutscenes
Excerpt: Zack Fair is briefly mentioned in Final Fantasy VII as being Aerith’s missing boyfriend. When Cloud and his friends visit Zack’s hometown village of Gongaga, you’ll meet his worried parents who have not heard from him in five years. Crisis Core goes back in time and puts you in the place of Zack Fair, SOLDIER (Shinra's elite army division) 2nd class. Some of his closest friends include a couple guys named Angeal, Genesis and Sephiroth.
