Overrated like hell, sure it brought the limit break system, materia system, but beside that, it's just a typical final fantasy "lets save the world" theme
well, considering that a majority of RPG games ARE save the world type storylines....
but it is definitely a solid story, great combat system for it's day when it came out, as well as the best told story with cg cut scenes. I would definitely buy it if it was re-mastered to a single blueray, with voice over for most of it (please pick good actors!!!!), and using today's gen specifics to the max. They can do it....they just don't wanna....
They aren't going to pick any other actors unless the actors themselves can't or no longer want to do the roles. Besides the actors themselves are fine.
Chapter 7, that's all you need to say to a Valkyria fan, they'll know what you mean-Celestial Damnation (see quote)
I think I said this the last time this same topic came up, but FFVII is a good game. It basically created the foundation of modern RPGs. It's also very crude and unrefined, and pretty much every game afterwards did it better. Most of the praise it gets, I feel, is because it was so innovative.
I personally have a high amount of respect for the game. It might not be the best RPG ever made, but it paved the way for the best RPGs I've played since then.
Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.
