Final Fantasy VII Remake: Reviews and ImpressionsThread

First off, the Meta.

Sounds like a trip well worth returning to, or just discovering for anyone that never played the original outing. But we already knew that.

Really anxious to get into it.

*edit* just got word from Amazon my copy has a new delivery date of my birthday. Somehow I'm more excited having to wait a few more days.

On my radar. I just started playing the HD PS3 remake of X. My favorite so far. Got about 10 hours into XIII and heard it'll get good after 25 hours. Most games do not last 25 hours!!! I look forward to further review of this game.

Eh. It's ok.

Yoshi178:
Eh. It's ok.

Actually that's high praise coming from you for a timed PS exclusive.

Wait, so you're playing X and XIII simultaneously? Interesting.

I was going to make this thread but you beat me to it.

So my plan for this game is gonna be different than my typical game impressions threads. I plan to fully dive into this game and give it a full review once i have completed the first playthrough.

So as a result, don't expect a FF7 thread from me until probably around next Monday. But know that I will be providing a full review for the game.

I wouldn't say it get good after 25 hours, more like the game stop pretending it has a story so you don't have to deal with that dumpster fire anymore.

Have it preloaded and ready to go. Can't wait to play it after soooooo many years.

I miss the optimism and eccentricity of 1997. So much more fun back then compared to the boring conformist dystopia of today. Hopefully FF7R can bring some of that magic back!

MediEvil's better.

After seeing spoilers due to the early copies out in the wild...oh Christ, this is gonna be a shitshow.

Been reading some spoilers

...Christ current day square enix is so bad at storytelling that literally copy pasting is too hard for them.

Here is an article that details the ending. The majority of Final Fantasy stories are retarded, but they were never as retarded and convoluted like the Kingdom Heart games.

I like the original FF7 for the characters, gameplay, and music rather than the overarching story. The story is somewhat slapped together badly, and the extended material makes it even worse in some areas. I was hoping the remake would iron out some of the narrative problems of the original or use what little good the spin off games offered, but it looks like the remake just added even more nonsense than needed. I will just pirate the game when it's actually complete.

So, two remakes released in close proximity that change stuff to fan dismay?

Hmm...

Hawki:

This isn't much a remake as it is an add on to the original game.

Meiam:

But was their thirst quenched? Isn't that all that matters?

I mean, I was definitely critical of the original (bottom fiving it IIRC in our recent rate aall the FF's thread tangent).

That said, aforementioned spoilers don't really sound like they're particularly filling in the originals flaws in structure, so much as exacerbating it.

It's a shame about the last couple of hours of the game. From what I saw, most of the game was fine and it actually improved from the original in some areas. Midgar looks great, Jessie is fantastic, the mini games look fun, and the combat is interesting.

What is Nomuras deal with Versus 13? It didn't seem to leave the concept stage at all, and it was constantly being rewritten. All I remember was that Noctis kingdom worshiped the grim reaper. And something about 3 games that would all take place in the same universe.

If he is going to be in charge from now on, then I don't want to see remakes of other final fantasy games.

Hard Mode details.

The ending song is good.

Silvanus:

Without looking into spoilers it sounds like this game pulls a

So I imagine it's going to be pretty divisive.

Spoiler light version.

Woot, Amazon finally sent me...the preorder bonus codes for the deluxe edition x.x.

Hope folks are having fun with this game, waited over 20 years so a few days more is not gonna kill me, now I'll be over here playing Outer Worlds not being salty one bit. XD

There's a couple free themes if you played the demo and have PS+

I'm hearing some very angry opinions from hardcore fans on this one. Luckily I don't have the same attachment to this as I do with resi 3 so I can just watch the debates passively.

As a hardcore fan, I can say that people are stupid. The game is great, and I'll be full reviewing it Monday.

I never understood how people get their knickers in a bunch so badly over entertainment. There's a distinction between hardcore "fans" and "fanatics" who don't agree with the people that dedicate a good chunk of their lives both professional and personally towards making the products they're shitting on. As long as it functions as intended, maybe try taking the artistic choices with a grain of salt and accept it for what it is.

If they have that much of an issue with how any game is designed, perhaps their lives need some hardcore re-examining until they learn to chill the fuck out. That or learn to make games themselves so they can walk a mile or two in those shoes.

Your other thread tying into this should've stayed open (*edit* never mind just noticed V2 has it) and if nothing else, just moderated to be kept civil. If a society is prohibited from addressing stupidity - which is inherently a human trait in the first place - then it will persist and proliferate until it changes that society for the worse.

Oh wait, it's already happening.
