Final Fantasy VII review
Review of Final Fantasy VII
Just like with Metal Gear: Solid, it's hard to describe a game that has such a legendary reputation. It's a great game, and if you haven't played it, you really should. It seems like I keep ranking this game lower and lower the more I think about it, and I'm not sure exactly why. It's a game that I've sunk 70+ hours into, easily. I have a lot of memories attached to this one game. But I guess I just expect more from games today. It might be unfair to judge this game by modern standards, but I guess that just means it isn't aging very well. And it just seems especially weird to have a silent protagonist, because he just comes across a bit like Gordon Freeman. Some kind of weird, socially maladjusted, emotionally vacant shell of an almost-person. The story grows from a small-scale to an epic world-saving scenario, and is engaging throughout.
