The first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.

Finally the days is near for one of the most anticipated "GREATEST" RPG game in mankind
Should have kept it turn based. I reckon this will probably be a massive let down!

It is turn based if you want it to be, it has an option for a traditional combat system:

But sure why anyone would be negative about this new system anyway, it incorporates important actions in a turn based gauge system but factors things in like distance, vulnerabilities etc. It's basically a 3D version of Secret of Mana in gameplay terms.

Another year yet for me, I refuse to by a PS4 just for 1 game. So I’ll wait for Xbox/pc release after the 12 month exclusive rights are up.

Agreed. Arguably the best thing about the original was the battle system. I’ve wanted this remake for ages, but I can’t help but think I’ll be disappointed because they’ve messed with it.

It was my favourite rpg for a good 10 years at least but it probably does need an couple of updates to the battle system.

I am pretty happy with the reception that the demo is getting and hoping to see it in person. Also they seem to say that there is two modes, one more active battle and then a slower one but I am not sure if it's always available.

The DS4 also caused me issues a few times. I ended up getting a CronusMAX adapter, which allowed me to use my Elite controller (wired) with the PS4. It's a bit of a faff to set up and it's not perfect (no way to emulate the DS4 trackpad, for games that use it), but it allowed me to play most of the PS4 exclusives.

But I fully agree - the DS4 is horrible. I play most multiplatform games on Xbox mainly due to the controller.

It's the length of a full game, just not the whole of FF7.

It's not the full original story. The game will be split into parts, with the first part being just the section of the game that takes place in Midgar. They're treating each part as a seperate game, so the next one will be released as a sequel of sorts.

In terms of side content, it sounds like they're actually planning on adding more than was in the original. The story is also slightly different in the remake, so the Midgar part may not even be the same length as it was in the original. They're essentially padding it out to make the Midgar part long enough for them to be able to charge full price for it.
To clear up any confusion it’s the first disk of the original game. You play up until you leave midgar.

That actually makes it more confusing because in the original game you play all the way up until The Forgotten City on disc 1.

This game is just the Midgar portion but it has been massively expanded upon. The fact it comes on two discs is enough to tell me it will be huge.

The only other game that has come on two discs so far is Red Dead Redemption 2. The Last of Us Part II will be a two disc game as well.

The game isn't being built for turn based, so putting that option on, it will feel more like a special mode that's just for fun more then actually playing the entire game like that.

I agree with the other guy, I have a feeling this won't be as good as people are hyping it up to be.

I don't think it will be a failure, just not a masterpiece either.

I've mentioned it to people who have had it pre-ordered since 2013 and they had absolutely no idea.

I would go as far to say its false advertising to not call this game episode 1. It doesnt even mention it in the game description.

Whats the 2nd episode going to be called? Is it going to cost £40+?

Because it was a turn based series that is now a watered down action game with a half baked option to make it turn based.


I enjoyed persona 5 much much much more than ff12 / 13 / 15 combined, they can't write and have no idea where the series is going.....

The game wasn't even announced until 2015 so that's clearly a lie. And if people are pre-ordering a remake of a popular 90s games, I'm pretty sure they'd be well informed on the way it's being developed. SE have been very transparent about how they're handling the game and how they're going to split it up into massively expanded parts.
Not bad price. I found it here for cheaper but dont know the company that well . offergames.co.uk/products/final-fantasy-vii-remake-ps4 . Not ordered myself yet though it looks good i was abit disappointed that it was just part one so i am going to wait a few months or so and hopefully get it for alittle less as is quite a few new games that i want .

Although i liked turn based back then, i prefer the action style combat now and i'm glad they changed it. It would be akward to see the characters all lined up, waiting for their turn to attack, i think it's dated. Anyway you can always play the original again if you wanted turn based i.e the more changes the better but at same time keeping the core of the original game still there.

I cant wait to see how they are going to stretch out what is basically a linear 4 - 6 hour tutorial area into a whole game.

Ah I thought it was 2013,maybe it was 2015 then.

Agreed. I recently played through and Platinum'd the original game on PS4 and found the battle system far too easy and quite archaic. The battles got tedious after a while and eventually I turned on the speed boost to race through the fights. Made it far more tolerable.

Probably because they already made it clear at the start and don't feel the need to repeat it again and again? I'm pretty sure they'll mention it on the back of the box as well.

From the pre-order page on the PSN store it clearly states:

"FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE is a reimagining of the iconic original with unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story, and epic battles.
The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII."

So yes, they are being transparent about it.

You prefer action combat and think turn based is dated
but you have no problem playing a super dated action game?


Thats cool but now you have to compare the "action" final fantasy games like 15 to other action games like dark souls / the witcher 3 / god of war and its not even close to being on par with those in any category..... Dark souls came out in 2011 lol

It's going to have a subtitle and yes it's going to cost full price again.

Or, if feedback and sales for part 1 are bad it won't get made at all.

It's not false advertising, it's a new product and the customer should make sure they are informed before buying.

Anyone that is even remotely keeping up with relevant news in the games industry should be aware of this stuff already.

All I can Say is when I mention it in conversation there's sometimes someone who has no idea it's only episode 1.

A lot of people don't follow developer announcements, they just preorder based on playing other games.

What you're buying should be clear in the title and description of the product you're purchasing.

That description is a lot clearer though!

I think there's a lot of rose tinted glasses when it comes to the old FFVII's battle system: It was stunning, but as bare bones as it comes. It really wouldn't be hard to recreate that with the same assets (positioning, cover etc really didn't matter, it was just a set animation followed by damage numbers, it's not Bravely Default or a SRPG).
