MuhammadMcDonald's Final Fantasy VII Review
This game has aged horribly. The poor graphics are detriment, to the point where you sometimes need a guide just to figure out how to get to the next screen. The combat system is fine if not bland - your party members lack any individual identity in battle. The minigames scattered throughout are mostly a nuisance.
That said, it's more than worth slogging through to experience a once-in-a-lifetime story, a unique world, and one of the best JRPG soundtracks ever created.
