Pure Angelic Magnificence!
5 August 2000 | by (Savannah) – See all my reviews

Final Fantasy VII is the best game ever made and puts everything else to shame. It tells a wonderfully engrossing story that keeps you guessing and surprised. The battle system and "Materia" system is ingenious and is not for the impatient or non-experienced video gamer. The challenge in the concept of this marvel is simply beyond the beyond. Extra quests and activities prove this game has depth. The music is fantastic! It keeps the flow of the emotion in the story move in a centrepetal, dramatic pace. The fact that this game lasts 100 hrs. makes all the better excuse for you to experience two or three times to go back and get things you missed. The game has an enigmatic way of of making you addicted to it forever............ in your heart
