Perfection!
30 January 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Final Fantasy VII is one of the best games ever made, and sold millions when it was released back in 1997. The game looks amazing, but it is the story that is the core of the Final Fantasy series. Cloud Strife is the main-character, he is a mercenary who has agreed to work for a rebel group called AVALANCHE. AVALANCHE is fighting against the evil Shinra-inc., a company which is absorbing all energy on the planet. Cloud meets different characters as the game evolves. FF7 was the biggest games of all time when it was released, because the game comes on 3 massive CD`s packed with action, adventure, romance, love, comedy, fantasy, drama, horror etc. 10/10
