      Absolute fricking garbage.
      Like said, it's not even a "remake" both old fans and new players expected, but a fricking SEQUEL to the 1997 game and its dozens of spinoffs.

      Not only that, but everything from the pacing to the art-directing and OST has been totally butchered. It shows that it's a literal Unreal engine cashgrab, outsourced to Pajeets.

      To add salt to injury, it's an episodic release, with last part's ETA being ~2030. And each part costs up to 80 bucks for a basic edition.

    /v/? no idea
    personally I really enjoyed it but I have a few criticisms: 1. the combat is fun but it feels like a slight downgrade from remake, 2. it has way too many mini games and a number of them are beyond difficult; I couldn't even get past the sit ups mini game, 3. they really fricked up cids character and left out rocket town, 4. the ending was less impactful than the original.
    overall I enjoyed it but it does fall flat in some areas

      >1. the combat is fun but it feels like a slight downgrade from remake
      In what ways?

      >2. it has way too many mini games and a number of them are beyond difficult
      I agree somewhat. The mini games, save for that stupid flying chocobo, the robot wave thing in Cosmo Canyon, and the push up one was pretty tough, but other than that they weren't too bad. Granted none of those were mandatory and the ones that were, weren't too challenging.

      >3. they really fricked up cids character and left out rocket town
      Yeah, but considering how little of his character was shown, it's not that big of a deal, especially considering there can be a lot more done in the next installment. Maybe he's hiding his abusiveness for Aeris' sake.

      >4. the ending was less impactful than the original.

      I got to agree with this one. The last thing the FF7 story needed is a multiverse angle, which is proven by how unnecessarily confusing that ending was.

        It's pretty fun, but I'm currently burnt out on it after getting about half way through hard mode.

        Not him but I have a similar opinion, though im willing to change it. But for me, the camera being so close to Cloud, the character is bigger and the wider slashes, long hit stop, bright sparks due to more low light and dark areas enhance a cinematic, more souls-like battle (cringe, i know).
        Having a dogshit aerial combat is what brings it down enough for me, the Tales-like open camera and bigger battlefield makes it easier to chain more attacks like rebirth has.
        But in Remake you normally use Cloud, so keeping track of other enemies is not as troublesome.

        Also, the big areas are great... but we lost character building, lore and context of the missions due not having big corridors perfectly placed for a scripted conversation to happen while sprinting to point A to point B. Everything else is better in Rebirth, but when party members talk to each other you feel like pausing and not moving until the conversation is over, it feels like an oddity compared to Remake (And Integrade) which you rarely have this quiet moments

    >Cons
    Too many minigames. There’s a lot of good minigames, but also a lot of shitty mini games.
    Swapping materia can get tedious. There needs to be an option to make loadouts.

    >Unsure if Pro or Con
    Story direction seems to be going for a Rebuild of Evangelion style story. Whether it pays off or not depends on how the story in the third and final game goes.

    Sephiroth falls in love with Cloud.

    Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina (Jenova) with the Ex-SOLDIER's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well.

    But, the next day, when Sephiroth recounts the previous day's confessions to Cloud, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the Cloud he called is not the same Cloud he fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is Cloud's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the Sephiroth's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.

    Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

    Possibly the best game I've played in over 5 years. It perfectly captures the whimsical magic and deep world building the original game has and feels like the first *Final Fantasy* game to come out since 12. Anybody who complains about the minigames being too much is a fricking whiny contrarian gays who can't understand what (optional) means. Since when is more of a game a bad thing to you losers? The alt-timeline shit is cringe worthy but its a comparatively small factor since the rest of the games follow the original pretty strongly. Cant wait to see the major Weapons in Part 3.

      They're not really "optional" when huge amounts of the game are locked out if you don't do them. Want to fight Girugamesh? Then you better be willing to play Gears n gambits and fort condor

                You can apply the same question to Emerald Weapon in the original game. Unless you were a speedrunning autist, you couldn't stand a chance of beating him unless you had the underwater materia and that was a whole sidequest in itself. In the end, it doesnt matter, its still optional content, and if you dont want to play it, it wont effect the overall story completion. Just cuz your bad at the minigames doesnt change that.

        Luckily Fort Condor, Gears and Gambits, and most of the other minigames are easy and can be cleared quickly if you’re not a moron.

          Not to say its like super well designed but I had barely any trouble with the Moogle minigame. Those guys shoot the most piss easy obstacles at you and all you have to do is run at them in the direction they need to go. They dont even attack while fleeing. I do wish they had mixed it up a bit since it was essentially the same thing over and over.

      No you don't understand, my mind goblin says do it.
      It was a weird balance between minigames, as in I really liked the Minigames at first because it was creative and fun, along with great character development.
      The card game was a bit hard to get to grips with at first but you still do what you can.

      Then End-Game and you're burnt out from precision control minigames that are honestly BS.
      As well as a neutered version of the Tower Defence game from the 1sts DLC.
      But frick me it was fun to make wild killer decks, you accumulated all the game breaking cards.
      And you feel like Kaiba.

      Then the side stuff that's now for level on the island that comes up, it was level 70/80? Its been a while. And it hit me that the game just wanted me to finish it.
      Thank frick, what a great end.

    As for story. I think they did great. I will speak for just the rebirth and remake. I don't understand why people said the entire story changed when it it technically just doing the same shit as the OG progression. While the whole time travel shits did interfered with the mainplot but the structure is pretty much the same, albeit the presentation is different. I suppose part 3 is the true breaking point of the story but we'll see.

    Too much style over actual substance.
    Their obsession with turning every single scene from OG FF7 into some grandiose epic shitfest is the biggest issue, and that's not only limited to Rebirth, they've been doing this crap ever since Zack dying to 3 grunts was turned into le epic standoff against a whole army in CC.

    So in a way, it's no surprise they missed the mark so much with the ending of Rebirth by making it unnecessarily long, epic and convoluted. It's actually pretty fricking logical given what they've been revisiting anything FF7, we should have seen it coming a mile away. Which is a damn shame, someone needs to teach these guys sometimes less is more, and the reason iconic scene number #24 is fondly remembered isn't because it was epic Marvel tier bullshit.

      There is only maybe 3 scenes that really missed the mark in terms of mood. Otherwise it does exactly what a 30 year later sequel should do. It makes everything bigger and more exciting. Instead of participating in a parade, you lead the parade, instead of sneaking onto a cargo ship, its a luxury cruise liner. I agree that Dyne's death and Aerith's death were mishandled but frankly, being over the top and adding a ton of unique new boss fights is exactly what I wanted from a Remake of Final Fantasy VII, a game that was always about style.

I agree that Dyne's death and Aerith's death were mishandled but frankly, being over the top and adding a ton of unique new boss fights is exactly what I wanted from a Remake of Final Fantasy VII, a game that was always about style.

        It's somewhat fine for action oriented scenes, but it's a problem when it fricks the tone of more character based scenes like Dyne's or Aerith's. Let's also not forget Sephiroth in flames during the Nibelheim flashback. These scenes are inferior in the remake because they completely miss the point of what the OG ones were about, for the sake of being more epic and subversive.

      By now, Rebirth has most likely sold well over 3 million copies since its launch. If 3 million copies of XVI were sold at launch, then its safe to say that most if not all people who bought XVI would have also bought VII Rebirth.

      The most likely reason why Square Enix hasn't announced sales figures for Rebirth yet is because its predecessor VII Remake sold 3.5 million copies during its opening weekend. In other words, they didn't announce opening weekend sales since they just didn't break the record of the previous game, which makes sense considering that the PS5 install base is significantly smaller than that of the PS4.

      Regardless, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is selling just fine. The director of the game got promoted, and Square Enix has confirmed that Part 3 is already in development and will be completed in 3 years.

      You can stop being a homosexual now.

            Its also the middle part of the trilogy, not a sequel to Remake. Most casual gamers are not dedicated enough to stick to an ongoing plot like FF7. Especially with a second cliffhanger ending. Most sales are going to be either fans of the original or new fans that really enjoyed Remake. Gamers who happened to play Part 1 on sale or for free on PS+ are going to wait til they can get the other 2 games in a bundle or just not devote that much time into a 3 part fantasy opera

    I beat it on sunday midnight. I havn't watched maximilian easy allies video because I want to watch the other dates and hard mode spoiler stuff before they blurt it out.

    The second to last chapter, I kind of understood considering the old game (prequel). I still don't understand the last tchapter quiet well, I undertand what its implying but it doesn't make sense to me as a whole.
    The thing was, Remake works perfect when you consider it as sequel to OG and Advent children. Sephirot forcing you to believe the OG ending is the bad end is genius so he can try again and win. But Rebirth storytelling without plot ghosts doesn't make a lot of sense: Its hard to identify who is Sephirot in cloud's mind and who is Sephirot from the lifestream, and both having the same objective(black materia, the OG objective) while the Remake implyed lifestream Sephirot change the destiny so anything can happen, and THEN adding alternate versions of Aerith and Zack that does interact with our hero's timeline, and they act as this is nothing to be amazed at, does really hard to follow.

    It's clear to me that Remake being the last chapter compltely bonkers and now Rebrth the same, that they don't have a big plot twist that blows people mind... they want you to feel anything can happen by misdirecting. And it works, at sleeping forest, even in the last part where they tell you to save before the ending, even then I doubted Aerith would die, i knew the setting was there but somehow the story changed enough for me to having hope. In the end, it happened but didn't at the same time. So even if they don't have clue what to do, they accomplished their task by making you believe otherwise.

        I would like to believe that too... But at the compromise of making a weaker game for the first too is hard for me to believe.

        For example, Tifa not making it clear Cloud is speaking bullshit, i understood it at Remake when they didn't saw each other for a long time, but after hours and hours of rebirth, hearing Cloud misremembering time after time, shouldve speak out right then. Barret watching Cloud attack Tifa and saying nothing, watching him chase Aerith, and hear him say "Let's chase Sephirot" again, after the end of Remake when he already said to him "But you defeated Sephirot"... It feels out of character more so to me, that I got him for the skywheel. It's like everyone is a companion but they don't feel like friends, that's how i felt it.

          >hearing Cloud misremembering time after time, shouldve speak out right then
          There is new scenes where she is trying to get the truth out of him. The scene on the rooftops in Kalm, the scene where she asks about Emilio, and definitely the scene in Gongaga where Cloud opens up about his mental issues. Tifa is/has alwags been afraid that if she pushes too hard, she'll either push Cloud away(just like her vision in the Weapon showed) or that she'll come to find that he isn't at all who she thinks he is. Not to mention that a majority of her and Cloud's relationship takes part in the later half of the plot so theyre already addressing quite a bit so far.
          >Barret watching Cloud attack Tifa
          Barret and the others did not see what actually happened. They just ran up to the point where Tifa fell in and Cloud was sitting there dazed, in which Barret punches him to snap him out of it. He didnt actually witness the attack.

          Theyre doing a great job of showing Cloud's decent into madness and how careful yet worried the rest of the party is. But with as much as theyre doing, theyre sticking to the same unfolding of events and development and unfortunately the original could get away with less since it was little chibis and text boxes. If you wanted to see a dynamic shift in characterization, it would affect the overall plot

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            Perhaps I was not clear on my intention. Barret clearly wasn't aware of Cloud attacking Tifa. But not protecting the closest person of his team feels out of character. Tifa was swallowed by a monster and spit out in front of him, plus, altough not shown, Cloud almost slash her in half, later he feels guilty beside her bed. When she wakes up, she tells them what she saw and never its implyed she was attacked by Cloud. Barret already considers Cloud a friend at this point, at the Rufus fight, Barret recognizes how much Cloud trust him and for the first time, asks him a favor: to let him fight Rufus alone. Then, after Dyne, Cloud reassures him that the load he has can be shared with him, that's how he convinces him to let go. So I still dont believe Barret just hears Tifa "Big monster, planet is fighting back" and he immediatly forgets what actually happened and neither Tifa or Cloud reveals they attacked each other.

            Maybe what I'm trying to say is this: The game being this long and having all this quests and conversations with your party members make you feel like they shoulve been friends by the end of Rebirth. Maybe in the original works better since the breadcrumbs are being set in less screens and less plot interactions, so you get the third act quicker. My completionist first playthough for Remake was 55hrs, and Rebirth took me 130ish hours. So it does feel kind of off character for them.

              You're doing a lot of speculation in the absence of undeniable proof all for the sake of "well these characters arent acting the way I want them to act". Just because *you* think they shouldve reacted differently doesnt make you any more right than anyone else. Theyre distinctly more fleshed out and are giving a lot more thought to the events in the story than they ever previously had.

    I had a lot of fun with the game, though it wasn't all great. Overall after taking some time away I'd say it's like a good 8.5/10. Combat is good, along with character interaction. Side quests and mini games can be fun, though the high scores were brutal at times. The open world stuff just being copy paste was a bit boring. I like that they made purple materia more interesting but it sucks that they limit the cool materia like the dual elements so harshly.

    The story is.. I dunno. I loved some parts of it and some other parts are really strange to me. When they are remaking FF7, it works wonderfully. I'm glad the game isn't just an HD rerun, but at times, it feels like the changes are way too much. I don't know how to feel about these mako reactor weapons that eat Tifa and swim around with her in the Lifestream. The Dyne scene, while well acted, hit very different than the original. And Nibelheim, I understand we all know the secret now, but the lab and the basement fell flat compared to the original.

    Cosmo Canyon was very rough as well. The bonfire scene was nice, but it wasn't the party bonding moment it was in the original. And I think that could have been kept. The finale with Aerith's "Death" was poorly handled. Visually too much. Feathers, rainbows, time jannies, the jump cuts. They are gambling on the mystery box and I hope it pays off.

    6.5 for me. Beautiful game with some really fun moments and an A+ cast marred by horrible pacing, tedious minigames, underutilized open world (no need for chadley), and unnecessary new story beats. I played remake as well and would give that around an 8.5
    I’ll probably buy the 3rd part but my expectations are extremely low and this colored any chance of me buying other square products.

          while turn-based games have the advantage of giving theplayer time to observe characters attacking individually (or even plan out your actions), there is no reason you can't simply observe the battle while it's happening in FFVIIR. they don't overload the screen with enemies like Bayonetta does

        I half agree with you. Nothing like this deserves to be "hated" quite the way Ganker loves to hate. But no game is distinctly perfect and everybody is going to have their own preferences especially to a almost 30 year old masterpiece of the medium and such a dynamic upgrade at that. Square does a lot of things wrong in recent years and some of their habitual mistakes are fair to criticize but Rebirth feels like a massive step in the direction long time fans would like to see. I had every anticipation that Rebirth would be much worse.

          cant speak for Remake, but in Rebirth completing the story, doing all the side quests, and all the minigames, unlocks the best accessories that blow open the possible build options. then hard mode itself continues the character and build progression with further passive unlocks, and provides such a challenge that you feel compelled to theorycraft new builds with all the options

        It forces the player to learn the intricacies of the phenomenal materia/ability system and not rely so heavily on the items. It makes for a more rewarding gameplay experience when you master the mechanics. That being said, just turning off items while still keeping them in the game is a massive cop-out.

          I mean you definitely can "just find some shit" but the more notable finds can be marked on your map with the help of some Ubisoft-like towers or NPC interactions. God forbid it being different that DD.

          Also there is something like 10 or so caches in each world section that are not revealed on your map unless you *actually find them by exploring* but its not dungeons as much as its a few chests and boxes. They do get revealed on your map once completing though, in case you missed some.

            I enjoyed DD because it's open world was the opposite of ubisoft towers. I'm not saying every open world should be the same, but exploring the world is always a hook for these kind of games. a random encounter in the forest leading to a quest or an unmarked NPC giving you lore because you decide to help them are the kinda things open world games should do IMO. I don't think rebirth is bad cause I haven't played it. I'm just trying to figure out what to expect

              Theres a lot of variation in the world content. Though most are repeated concepts in each open world section.

              >Ubisoft towers
              >a few summon shrines
              >5 local enemy variation minibosses

              >Lifestream fountains
              >a Moogle house mingame and shop
              >a photo-op spot

              Then there are things not revealed like the about 6 or so treasure caches, scratch and sniff item hunting, and rest spots all of which you need to find yourself through various indications.

              Finally you have actual sidequests per each area in which you need to talk to specific NPCs and are usually a bit more in-depth such as using small maps or engaging in particular minigames. Theres usually about 3-5 in each area and often times involve certain party members to help complete.

    I love damn near everything about it. My issue with the game are not based on malice or shit posting.

    1. Platforming is clunky and due to the lack of the jump button makes scaling geometry really annoying at times
    2. Cids character being pacified is annoying but I’ll let this point go if they remedy that in part 3
    3. Mini games are fun but probably the robot one is probably a step too far. Not because it’s bad per se but because tying strong story elements to a mini game that hard is not smart
    4. Having your open world exclusively tied to World Intel was dumb. I understand that they wanted players to not get overwhelmed with the OW but exploration feels inorganic when you have too many areas that are clearly supposed to be a set piece that don’t activate till you do some quest line. It doesn’t make the world feel alive.

    Outside of that I loved everything else. I don’t care that the games are mete sequel. I love these characters and they’re represented here 100x better than in the OG and I’ll never accept any push back on this.

    Good combat and customisation, excellent art and visuals. Story is a weird fanfic that’s best when it’s just retelling the original story.

    The world is well realised and the towns look good even by classic FF standards, walking around Kalm and challenging people to card games reminded me of Alexandria in FF9, FF has its “recurring tropes” like any series I guess and it’s easy to play Rebirth and feel like you’re experiencing the pinnacle of the franchise in terms of “it’s 2024, this is what we can do now.”

    I’m sure a good majority of the Japs making this game were happy to have been making it and there’s not a lot of obvious meddling outside a few too many black NPCs.

    The world looks really good but I kept thinking how much I wish it had BOTW or Elden Ring’s means of exploration since there’s way too much context sensitive mountain climbing-type shit, the world looks great but the way you move through it feels terrible, the combat is the only thing that feels really well designed which is pretty normal for RPGs, but you spend too much time climbing mountains for how shitty it is.

    Ever since playing Rebirth I've had a hard time playing anything that isn't like, Rocket League or Picross, short stuff.

    This game is likely one of the best sequels of all time, seriously. The music, characters, fight system, materia customizability, the world map, set pieces, it's just such a gargantuan evolution over what FF7 Remake was and it's soooo far beyond other sequels in the industry, this game is so far beyond what Ragnarok was for GoW 2018, Spiderman 2 to Spiderman, etc. This is gaming when it dreams, and thank god it did. Genuinely one of my favorite videogames of all time, pretty much instantly.

      I imagine thats why the ending of Rebirth so Aerith heavy, because Rebirth is essentially Aerith's game given that she will be mostly dead in Part 3. Theyve been setting Tifa and Cloud up the whole time pretty well with them both wanting to explore each other more but having obstacles in their way. Granted it'll all be non-canon but theyre will be a context specific cutscene under the Highwind most definitely.

But like, why did Cloud and his group even decide to kill fate at the end of the first game? There's no reason for it, they didn't know about the "doomed future" until after they made up their minds, and this is after the whispers saved all of their lives and brought Barrett back from the dead.

    There is as much good as there is bad in this Chadley simulator, who in their right mind puts god damn Chadley as the frontman if this game? Its a disgrace. The open world thing is an epic failure and adds nothing fun to the experience. If you think its fun then you are lost souls sadly.

    It does not matter that the actual story, which the devs got for free btw, is compelling, when everything else is what I hate about modern gaming.

    Probably Lifestream Aerith, her voice is projected into Cloud's head
