This being my first Final Fantasy game all I have to say is this: what a great game. When remaking a legendary title such as Final Fantasy VII, you want it to respect the original while updating it to fit modern consoles better. And boy, does this game does it. It's a beautiful game. Not only that, but the characters are loveable. The story is also fantastic. Good music is nothing new to the Final Fantasy franchise and this game is no exception. There's not a single bad track in the whole game. One thing that changed between this and the original is the gameplay. In the original, fighting was done through a turn-based system. This time the battle system is a real-time combat system. Don't go in expecting the battles to be simple though. Players must strategize on the best equipment to take with them throughout the entire game. That being said, the best equipped doesn't stop the boss fights from being challenging. Once you do defeat them, it feels extremely rewarding. There isn't that much negative to say about the game. The side quests weren't that good (in fact, they're rather dull) and areas can be quite linear which doesn't leave room for much exploration. Those two things don't stop this game from being an amazing experience. This is everything a game remake should be.
