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

Several of the words in the game derive their origins from Norse mythology. Midgar, for example, is derived from the Norse word "Midgard", which is where the gods put humans to protect them from the giants. "Nibelheim" is derived from the word "Niflheim", which is the land of the dead, and also literally means "fog home" or "mist home" (important insofar as the town is Cloud's home in the game). One of Cloud's swords is called the Ragnarok, which comes from "Ragnarök", the Norse doomsday. See more »

Goofs

Just before Cloud jumps into the train he is surrounded by Shinra soldiers. However, in the FMV where he jumps, there is no trace of those soldiers anywhere near him. See more »

Pure Angelic Magnificence!
5 August 2000 | by watto124See all my reviews

Final Fantasy VII is the best game ever made and puts everything else to shame. It tells a wonderfully engrossing story that keeps you guessing and surprised. The battle system and "Materia" system is ingenious and is not for the impatient or non-experienced video gamer. The challenge in the concept of this marvel is simply beyond the beyond. Extra quests and activities prove this game has depth. The music is fantastic! It keeps the flow of the emotion in the story move in a centrepetal, dramatic pace. The fact that this game lasts 100 hrs. makes all the better excuse for you to experience two or three times to go back and get things you missed. The game has an enigmatic way of of making you addicted to it forever............ in your heart
