Rated 8.9 out of 10 by 7
Rated 10 out of 10 by TruthDoctor Excellent since 96
I bought this game on release day, back when playstation was "the main thing" in gaming. That is the PS one. This game was great then with graphics that were not seen before. By today's standards, it still looks better than most Indie titles. Even though I have owned all final fantasys since the original, but 7 is what put the series on the map and made square enix what it was at it's best. Too bad they made 13 and mucked their name up.
This game is simple enough for the casual gamer to understand and master, but the time requirement is immense like most RPG's, making RPG's more appropriate for the hardcore gamer. This game was one of the first games where who you think is the main antagonist or villain is really just a thorn in your side and there is a MUCH greater threat that needs to be addressed.
This game will not steer you wrong. The nostalgia is why I recently bought this game again on steam. I still have the playstation game, but no Playstation and my ps3 and ps4 are not backwards compatible.
Do I recommend this game? Absolutely! this game earns a 10 out of 10.

If you have the time to get into a story then please make it a Final Fantasy game. These games have always been known for their beauty and revolutionary turn-based gameplay.
Final Fantasy 7 brought in a huge array of what are now FFFans. Being the first HUGE hit in America, you should definitely go back and replay or experience this game for the first time.
If you like strategy or other turn-based games I would highly recommend getting hooked on the Final Fantasy series. And this is a great place to start.

Rated 10 out of 10 by Lh84 I LOVE THIS GAME!
First game I played consistently, to this day I still love it. I used to buy it every odd year. *(not any more thanks to download). A "Casual Gamer" would enjoy if this is one of the few games you play.

This is hands down a must buy game. It's 2014 and im still playing it, like, insanity. Really the graphics are good for the first 3d final fantasy game and the story takes a dark turn from sucking the planets life blood to causing a catastrophe to become a god. Whew! You'll love the characters and you'll probably play the other FF7 games out there. This is such a good game you'll love the story about meteor and genetics and you'll love the world and music and and and EVERYTHING!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Yanberg Epic Game for all ages.
This game is what set the bar for the term RPG to me. Hundreds of hours i spent playing this when i was kid. Anyone who is a RPG fan must have this title in there collection. I recommend this to everyone who says they are fans of the genre.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Orphan The Overhype
This game is completely over hyped. If you like spikey haired emo kids with big swords and bland generic personalities, get this game. You won't go wrong.
