The world of Midgar is at the mercy of energy company Shinra; only the group of mercenaries known as AVALANCHE can stop them from bleeding the planet dry of its lifeline: the liquid Mako. Joining AVALANCHE for a one-time job, Cloud Strife is an ex-soldier suffering from amnesia; and in his helping AVALANCHE he will suffer haunting blasts from his past, totally out of his control. Cloud soon finds himself in the middle of a conspiracy that threatens all of Midgar: and his pursuit of recovering his memories. Written by Johnny

I can't stop smiling...
18 April 2020 | by dvandenbrandtSee all my reviews

I am a die hard fan of the original FF7 game, so I was both thrilled as well as nervous about this remake. I mean, how can you top one of the best games ever made? Also, how do you manage to satisfy the lovers of old school 'turn based' action, as well as the next generation? Well, they actually managed to pull it off! Not just in terms of gameplay or graphics, but also the effort to go much more in depth with each character and side character. I am truly impressed by the creativity of the developers, who managed to stay true to the original plot, as well as surprise those who know the story so well.

Although the story only covers the Midgar part, FF7 Remake has all the characteristics of a full game and much, much more!
