Shalua Rui: [has a hold of Shelke's hand, trying to get through the door] Come on.
Shelke Rui: [tugging her arm] Let go of me!
Shalua Rui: I don't think so.
[Shelke looks a litte surprised]
Shalua Rui: We have 10 years to catch up on. I'm not gonna let this end here...
[suddenly the 'blast' doors start to close; Vincent runs towards them]
Vincent Valentine: Shalua!
[Shalua barely manages to get her false arm between them, propping them open; she & Vincent try to pry the doors open; she groans]

Shalua Rui: [pause] You can still get through.

Crazy Credits

After the credits, we go down to the cave where Weiss is lying dead. He is approached by an unidentified figure who picks him up, and tells him that their work is not done yet, addressing him as brother. A wing then appears out of the figure's back, and he flies away, carrying Weiss with him. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (2007) reveals this character to be Genesis, a precursor of Sephiroth.

Overall, pretty good
7 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Final Fantasy VII was one of the best selling RPGs of all time. So it's no big surprise that Square has made a couple of prequels and sequels to it. SE's latest, Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, is a hybrid third person shooter/RPG. As such, on top of running and gunning, you'll be buying upgrades for your gun and leveling up the game's main character, Vincent.

The game is fun to play, but the levels feel too linear and simple. Furthermore, you won't be pulling off any of the awesome stunts that Vincent did in Advent Children. Your athletics is limited to a double jump and some punching and kicking. The gunning is usually fun, and DoC's weapon customization system makes it even better. Unfortunately, you'll often feel like your in a shooting gallery, because your enemies are so darn stupid. They will sometimes run up to you and just sit there, waiting to be shot. Also, the game is somewhat short; I completed the game in only three days.

Graphics are pretty good; the character models are great, but the environments tend to look a little bland. It's OK, though, because each level looks very different from the last.

DoC's sound is very good, because of great voice acting, crisp sound, and brilliantly composed music.

The storyline is top notch. While I don't want to spoil anything for you, I will say this: This game may make you cry, especially if you cried during "that" one scene in Final Fantasy VII. You'll also see many classic locations, including Shinra Manor and Kalm.

Overall, DoC is a fun game, but if you're looking for the next great Final Fantasy game, this isn't it.
