IN WHICH OUR INTREPID HEROES MUST…
Thwart the plans of an evil global corporation and prevent an über-villain from becoming a god.
WHAT MAKES IT GREAT:
A boring and uninspired choice, some will complain. The most overrated game of the franchise, others will moan. And these ill-mannered malcontents may have a point. But consider what FF VII offered: computer-generated graphics and a 3-D world — both firsts in the series. A sprawling adventure so big it had to be spread out on three discs. A robot cat who spoke with a Scottish accent. Chocobo racing. Cross-dressing. Airship travel. And a death scene that literally moved many to tears.
DID YOU KNOW?
The game was originally developed to be played on the Nintendo 64, but when it outgrew the limitations of the cartridge system, the developers decided to take advantage of the larger storage capacity of CDs used by the then-new PlayStation.
