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 <>

User Reviews

To all who can't recognize greatness when it stares them in the face...
23 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game was the first of its kind I ever played. Because of this one game, I went on to dozens of others, as this opened the door to a whole new spin on gaming for me. I must have played through this game at least 15 times, and I love it every time.

It's many subtleties, side quests, and overall excellence make this one of the best games of all time.

Considering all the trash, the useless dribble, the terrible recycled garbage that is commonplace today, Final Fantasy VII is a pillar of gaming at its very best.

Its great diversity offers a difficulty level appropriate for as much as you are set on putting into it- whether you're just set on seeing the ending, or destroying the Ruby Weapon.

Those who so harshly criticize this game obviously lack the attention to detail, and the insight to truly enjoy a work such as this. FFVII towers over almost every CURRENT game available today.

This game is not meant to be played, it is meant to be enjoyed.

I highly recommend immersing yourself in this adventure Role Playing Game. 11 // 10 --- One of the greatest games of all time.
