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>

Trivia

Beginning with this game, the games had the same number in the title in both the American and Japanese releases. Prior to this, only three games in the series had been released in the US; leading to Final Fantasy III (1994) being released under the title Final Fantasy III. Starting with this game, Squaresoft fixed the problem once and for all by releasing the game worldwide as Final Fantasy VII. They also went back and did "reissue" packages using the correct, original Japanese numbers for the previous games in the series. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the game's closing credits, a brief cinematic is shown in which Red XIII and two of his offspring run to the top of a cliff, where the remains of Midgar can be seen covered in vegetation. Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005) opens with this same scene, revealing it to be set 500 years after the events of the game. See more »

An Incredible Game
5 January 2000 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best games I have ever seen- challenged only by Final Fantasy VIII. The story is great, the battles are amazing, the animation is wonderful, and the music (by Nobuo Uematsu) is awe-inspiring. If you can, listen to the orchestral version. But I regularly laughed at people who spent hours and hours playing these games until I started. After just half an hour, I was hooked. I spent over 100 hours across a five month period playing it. Truly addictive.
