Ratings and Reviews
One of the most influential RPGs of all time, Final Fantasy VII takes you on an unforgettable journey through a harsh and unforgiving sci-fi landscape. Packed with tense turn-based combat and an extraordinary story, Square Enix’s masterpiece is as exhilarating now as it was when it was first released in 1997.
Ok, I wanted to address some "complaints". Most people who buy this are fans of the playstation format. That said, to my eyes, improvements or upgrades are unwelcome. I, and I suspect many others, bought this for the original experience. I say this because complaints about graphics, gameplay etc is pointless. The original wasn't perfect but we all love it for its uniqueness. To address a small point, slowdown on the map seems to happen when you exit a town or the high wind from cockpit view. If you tap menu button and exit this rights the issue. A small pain but nothing's perfect. Overall I'm extremely happy with the transition onto iPad.
A pretty lame port of a great game
As an avid fan of Final Fantasy VII I was obviously very excited to see it land on the App Store and be able to play it once again. However, looking at how great the ports of FF4, FF5, FF6 and FF9 are and the way they've been redesigned to specifically work on a mobile device as well as see major graphics tweaks (both on maps/models, and the UI), I'm somewhat disappointed that this installment didn't see the same treatment. This version is a direct port of the PC version released in 1997 with no alterations made at all (except the ability to use touch controls). Perhaps a big update could be released for this game which fixes all that, or maybe I'm just daydreaming...
