I'm mostly surprised by how well the plot holds up, especially compared to the plot of some JRPGs that came out recently like DQXI and Tales of Arise. This is the game that reassured me that I still like this genre.
The combat feels nice when you get the hang of it, it takes a while to learn to play the specific way the game wants you to play it.
Having to equip/unequip the materia to and from the rotating 3rd party member sucks though.


This game is weird.

It's presentation, visual and audio, are phenomenal. Beautiful game, beautiful music, beautiful voice acting. And the most praise i'll give to the story is that what is loyal to the original is reinterpreted beautifully. And I'm really glad the characterisation of the main cast are loyal to the original.

Now that this is out of the way.

The combat, I don't dislike it per say, but, I don't know, it wasn't my thing while I still recognize that it is solid.

Making this a sequel time loop reboot thingy kinda urks me. While the game itself does nothing terribly offensive with it, I feel like it's setting up it's sequels to do really stupid stuff with the lore. Hopefully it won't, I mean this game dosent really other than having stupid ghosts flying around and no clip to Sephiroth at the end.

The filler is....lame, I don't really care for it. I enjoy that we get to see more of Jessie, Biggs and Wedge, but the rest is pretty useless and I do not care for it.

All in all, I thought it was a good game, but it just left me with a weird feeling and I'm very cautious about the sequels to this game. I guess we'll have to wait and see, but for now. Let's just leave it at this game is pretty good.

That being said I absolutely would reccomand the original over this to anyone.


The mid combat and weird main quests make this feel like FFXIV:ARR. I love FF7 so much, Not sure why they took this approach for the early game, will come back to it tho.
