The Final Fantasy VII Remake covers only the opening prologue of the 1997 original game, leaving some to wonder whether it will have the same emotional height as the full story. It succeeds in spades, by taking an early tragic moment and magnifying it to the level of a war crime.
Final Fantasy VII Remake takes some cool enemy designs you may know from the original game and fleshes out their background, making for some incredibly memorable boss encounters.
In its early hours, the Final Fantasy VII Remake teases that it's not going to simply follow the script of the 20-plus-year-old PlayStation classic. It makes the player's relationship with the original a central part of the experience.
