Plot. The story begins in Midgar, where a resistance force known as Avalanche sets out to destroy the reactors of Midgar, in which is sucking the energy life source, known as Mako. Accompanying them is Cloud Strife, a man with a mysterious past, and also Barret Wallace, a gruff leader of Avalanche. Soon Cloud encounters old friends and new friends such as Yuffie, Aeris, Cid, Vincent, Cait Sith and Red XIII. What begun as the ShinRa corporation trying to tighten its grip on the world, they at first tried to destroy it, however, something much bigger is also trying to destroy the world, a man named Sephiroth, who has a past feud with Cloud. Soon more mysteries are unfolded
Character Development. Yoshitaka Amano provided the sketches for the characters and he did a very good job. Characters would no longer be sprite rendered, but rendered in third dimensional polygons. CGI sequences would be shown randomly. In some sequences, players could move freely, until the real scene begins.
Compilations. By the early 2000's, Final Fantasy VII started to have movies and games such as: Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII, Crisis Core, Last Order, Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus. The three prequels and the sequel to Advent Children is where Cloud is not the main character. This compilation would be known around the world as: Compilation of Final Fantasy VII
Music. Nobuo Uematsu continued to inspire many fans with his majestic and powerful composing. The most popular music theme in the movie is One Winged Angel, in which would be re-arranged in Advent Children composed by Uematsu and played along with the J-Pop band The Black Mages.
Scenarios. Final Fantasy VII began the Full Motion Videos, in which players would enjoy scenarios in CGI. However, the ending of disk one depicted one of the most shocking and saddest moments in Final Fantasy.
Characters. Most of the game's characters are very memorable as much as the characters from Final Fantasy VI. Cloud continues to be number 2 as one of the best video game heroes ever. The love triangle between Cloud, Aeris and Tifa is unforgettable and the likeness of Sephiroth continues.
Rantings. Well, the Materia system kind of got me confused, and in a way I miss the old tradition of learning Magic. But the good thing about Materia is that you level up and learn the second or final magic power of that Materia. What adds the ranting list is when you head to Wutai before the Temple of the Ancients, and your Materia is all gone. I swear fighting Rapps in Wutai was a pain in the ass, NO MATERIA, because Yuffie stole it. Also, some weapons have no Materia settings at all, which got me quite pissed off about it.
Good Aspects. Well, Final Fantasy VII is beyond epic, and it's a cult classic among gamers. The good thing about the game is the messages that it brings. In the game, my favorite character is Vincent Valentine, so dark and grim, and a real badass with a gun. Also the bike chase scene was amazing, I thought Cloud looked pretty bad ass on the bike and escaping from the Shinra.
Overall. This game continues to rock the world and Final Fantasy fans will always remember the first day they laid eyes on this game and played it. As so will I.Final Fantasy VII gets a 10 out of 10
