One day, a Mako reactor serving the sprawling metropolis of Midgar is attacked and destroyed in a bombing raid by a revolutionary group calling themselves Avalanche.
Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite “Soldier” unit takes part in the raid as a mercenary hired by Avalanche and sets events in motion that will draw him and his friends into an epic struggle for the fate of the planet itself…

One of the best games ever, but one problem
Final Fantasy VII is one of the best video games of all time, and there's nothing different about it in this mobile port except for one thing. That says a lot right there! But that begs the question: what is the one problem this game has? Auto saving. This game NEEDS an auto saving mechanic. When you play a good RPG, you play it for HOURS, and this is one of those cases. However, chances are, if you're so in the game and can't stop playing. You'll likely be having an experience so unreal that you'll forget to save in the long run. That being said, if you die and you haven't saved for a while or at all, then you're going to have to start the game all over again. Which will be very frustrating, rage insisting, annoying, and disappointing. And shockingly enough (sarcasm) this happened to not only myself, but to basically every other person who played this port. So please, game developers, add this feature.
I grew up with this game, and the sheer awesome factor of having it in my pocket almost makes up for its obvious shortcomings. That said, it could have been done better. The sound could have been upgraded, and the controls, though usable, look awful and really detract from what is on screen. Plenty of RPGs are on iOS with an appear-when-you-touch-the-screen control scheme that doesn’t get in the way of visuals. The buttons also just aren’t designed well. Add that to the screen size problem with two sizable bars on either side, and you’re looking at a very small area of gameplay. Its obvious they just pushed this through as fast as possible, and not for a cheap price. I would think a simple-ish update would fix these problems. There’s already an HD version available, at least the resolution could have been better. Bottom line: beyond excited to have the game, it looks and plays awkward.
Hate the controls, no auto save
I am a very big fan of all the RPG remakes such as previous final fantasy games and dragon quest games. But this is the only game that I am growing frustrated with the controls on. Just getting your character to move in a specific direction takes some concentration.
Then I'm passing by so many items and materia because I can't freakin see it on the screen. No indicators. If you never played this game (like me) you will be lost. Thankfully I can turn on indicators for doors and such. This game looks like I am looking at the PS1. Hate those graphics.
Then there is no freakin autosave or I just can't figure it out. I played the game for about 30 min straight going through cut scenes and all. I get a text message and view the message real quick and reply. I go back to the game and it's at the startup of the app again and all was lost.
Final fantasy V to me is a better remake than this game is and I just played that for the first time as well. I hope FF9 is better than this.
