 Great game, but...

I saw the trailer for this game and it looked epic, and it is a good game with the graphics and story, however the gameplay for me let this game down. First of all yes it does work, quite effectively too making the fighting more intense than other final fantasy games. The trouble is that from previous final fantasy games, i have found that you needed to think strategically in order to win the battle as brute force did not always work as manly as it seems. With this game however i completed the story mode with a fair bit of ease, I also noticed i could kill any enemy with ease as well with just the sword, no magic or other strategic efforts required :(. The fact as well that you only get to play as the one character is good and bad, good so you can learn all the moves about the character, bad as in no more options to play any more people. The battle system should be more like final fantasy 12, where it was quite similar, however in 12 you also really had to think to beat the toughest foes, with this its mainly sword, dodge, heal, kill. Worth a buy yes indeed, but could be better

 PSP has been waiting for this...

FFVII was the game that got me into RPGs and that was initially based on its fantastic style, a sweet contrast between future-tech and rural slum/village classic-fantasy that was a mix which would satisfy and intrigue the cyberpunk style anime fans and old school mythologically rooted fantasy RPG fans. This game holds the style perfectly, in game graphics are almost are not far from FFX to be honest, (obviously with a lower poly count but not that noticable since it is on a small screen, but the FMVs are basically like FFVII Advent Children.

The story is Zack's tale and flows very well, there is a central story focusing on Sepiroth when he was apparently a good guy, with lots of side missions where you unlock materia, mako stones, summons, and level up etc, these are accessed at sae points via a PDA type thing. The game cuts down on some boring elements like finding shops by enabling an online shop style system meaning less pointless travelling, and expands on the good stuff by giving you lots of action packed fights with a fancy roulette modifier system called the DMW. It is basically a roulette wheel that either gives you summons, team assistance, or status modifiers like no MP cost, Invincibility, null magic damage etc.

On the minus side, you have to rely on this to cast cool things like summons for you as you cannot do so whenever you wish, on the plus side, it offers more things than just summons and is almost based on a fortune system that is influenced by your circumstances, so if you are in a tough situation you are more likely to be helped well by it so long as you survive long enough to reap its benefits. Surviving is almost a FFXII deal, it's not a static turn based deal, you get in a fight, move and run around the enemy within a limited field, but this time you can roll-dodge or block in active time when the enemy attacks which is a big improvement over XII, the only step back is miniscule, other than bosses you do not see the enemy on the screen prior to battle, they randomly spring up on you out of nowhere.

This game is awesome, it is quite simply FF on the PSP, not a cut down FF, a pure, full on, FF on handheld. If that's your bag, do the right thing and buy now.

 Bring back SquareSoft.

The only reason to play this game is because you loved Final Fantasy 7 and want to have a little more background story. The graphics are nice and the cut scenes are impressive, possibly more so because this was the first game I played on my PSP. The gameplay is boring however since they decided to change FF to a very poor hack and slash game (If you want an action game buy God of War its really good) I only played it too completion because I wanted the story line, I wont play it again. The side missions are boring and all exactly the same -go somewhere, kill something get some items- this all takes place in about 4 small environments. I would wait until FF7 comes out from download from the online PS shop, you don't really find out anything interesting that you didn't already know. Since Square Soft became Square Enix the game quality just keeps plummeting,

 Best PSP game yet!

To be perfectly honest, i was skeptical. FF7 is my favourite game of all time, mainly because the story survived the 21st century now with graphics that clear it off the map. I thought that the makers of FF should maybe leave it alone so not to ruin it or disappoint anyone.

Hands down, i was wrong.

Possibly one of the best games i have ever played. I thought the story wouldn't have been up to par but it totally was. It is made all the more fun by including old characters from FF7 but in a different light (Sephiroth actually being a nice guy at times).

It sends shivers down your spine when you think of what is yet to come in the story that is in FF7 because you are so engrossed in the Crisis Core story you totally forget about it.

The main story is great, the side missions are fun, the graphics are spectacular for the PSP, cut scenes are to PS3 standard, the new battle engine is great.

It is just what any FF7 fan wants. It fills that gaps on what happened 7 years previous and you constantly find yourself thinking "yeah i remember someone mentioning that in FF7"

What made it for me was the remade scene of sephiroth walking into the fire at nibelheim, epic stuff and brings back fond memories of childhood 2AM FF7 gaming.

if you had £15 to spare and decided to buy some other game, you are a fool, this is worth every penny, get it or be sorry.

 what a game!!

I am a massive fan of the final fantasy series and am into all of them but this is by far the best one they have created so far. It's a brilliant concept to go into the past of final fantasy 7 and show you more depth into the remaining characters and explain why things were.
It begins with a similar beginning to final fantasy 7 to reignite those well known feels of excitement and wonder. You are immediately shown the most well known character from ff7, Sephiroth who could easily win best baddie of any game of this century! The new characters are well thought out, the voice acting is amazing (unlike some other games I could mention) and overall you get the feeling this game has in no way been rushed. Even 'unimportant' conversation between characters is witty and inventive. I've never laughed so much while playing a game. Zack is very funny, and also charming, you can see why Aerith fell for him.

It takes you the beginning of Soldier, shows you the most important 1sts and perhaps the greatest soldiers there ever were. You are there at the beginning of Clouds journey and there at the end of others. You witness the love blossom between Zack and Aerith and (if you've played FF7) see some very similar scenes that once included Cloud. All the way through this game you get the sinking feeling that you have seen this, but that's the point. We get the full story, from another perspective so we understand all the story, we see that some characters were not always good and others weren't always bad. The ending is worth waiting for, it's powerful, emotive and is the final link.

Well for the past couple of months this game has been my everything, so to all those who may complain about the length, they just haven't look hard enough. The missions are necessary to the game and are not there just to bulk it out. You develop characters, progress your strength and abilities while enquiring Gfs, magic and items that are otherwise inaccessible. These are what make the game interesting after all! (Tip mission 7-6-6, magic pot, most annoying battle ever!)
I also must mention the new way of fighting. If like me, you were impatient in past battles, waiting for ATB bars to refill or simply waiting for your turn, you will love this. It has been simplified into a free for all, a raw fight. You still use magic and MP and can select items anytime you wish! Limit breaks and summons are also more random, they are controlled by a DMW reel that spins like a bandit, it you get 3 the same you're a winner, and receive a limit break or summon or 'special character' sequence (they're fun!). There are no upgrades for weapons, you use two, and only when the time comes will you receive the second! You also level up differently, no EXP, the game keeps a mental note of your progress and levels you up when necessary (its more often that you would expect!).
You can just choose to follow the game and move from chapter to chapter but if you explore, don't follow the natural flow and actually develop your own story, you will see some really magic moments. Questions like where Aerith got her bow from and why she wears pink may seem insignificant but are just some of the things you can discover.
The graphics are incredibly beautiful, the cut scenes make you long for more, even the Gfs scenes have been upgraded (Odins is by the best)! And Zack, the main man, is by far one of the best characters there has ever been. You will grow to love him very easily as he matures, overcomes challenges and is there for our very own Cloud.
This game is everything we have been waiting for, and more! I really can't describe it well enough, but even if you have never explored the world of Final Fantasy, this is a very good place to start!
