Having fond memories playing the original FFVII back on the PSone, it was nice returning to the city of Midgar and experiencing some of those pivotal moments in the classic RPG.
What blew me away back then had been the story and characters, which were rich with their own quirks and weirdness. This remake of the cult classic looks fantastic, bringing more personality to the characters we used to know and love.
Gameplay has evolved into an action-focused RPG, with squad based tactics available on command for things like using items or casting magical spells. Although this is merely the first part to an otherwise larger story, it is substantial in length, taking me around 46 hours to finish it.
If you are a fan of the Final Fantasy series, or a newcomer looking to see what the fuss is about, this is definitely a solid title on the PS4 and worthy of a place in your collection. Recommended!
