Storyline

A corrupt company, by the name of ShinRa is draining the energy out of the (nameless) planet and conducting expiriments on living things. Enviromental and social callamities, such as the pollution of the air and seas, overpopulation, high drug rate and treating women like objects. A mercenary and a rough and tough organization by the name of Avalanche must put an end to ShinRa, but a couple of ShinRa victims might be causing a bigger threat. One of the ShinRa victims is an alien that crash-landed on the planet and killed an ancient race. The other ShinRa victim is a man in a trench coat that wants to rule the world and summon the doomsday meteorite. Written by Jenova Synthesis <mayu_roxx@hotmail.com>

The most beautiful game ever!
8 December 1999 | by (Göteborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This game is, without question, the greatest one ever produced. With lush, beautiful graphics, a wonderful musical score and a story that beats all other RPGs, Final Fantasy VII certainly is a landmark in gaming history. You play the young mercenary Cloud Strife, who suffers from anamnesia, with a past shrouded in mystery. In the course of the game you gather weapons, magical artifacts and information in the search for the truth of who and what you are.

This game is recommended to everyone, as it is not only a game for hardcore RPGers but for everyone.

I have yet to play the sequel, Final Fantasy VIII, but I doubt it can surpass the splendor of this magnificent game!
