Is Final Fantasy VII worth $5.00?

#1BissomoneybagsPosted 2/16/2013 10:56:56 AM
The game is on sale on PSN, and I'm hesitant on whether I should buy it. Played IX, and LOVED the game, VIII I never finished as I found the draw system tedious, and from X-XIII-2, I didn't mind for the most part (X being my favorite). So is it worth the $5.00 price tag? The game always receives extremely controversial reviews, and I would like just an honest opinion of the game. Thanks gamefaqs.

I played IX and liked it, too, and played as much of VII as I could stand last summer. For $5, it's a steal, but it drags at some point in disc 2. That's after 20hrs, though, so you should get your money's worth out of it, certainly.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

Maybe.

It was my first FF game and my favorite, followed by 9.

It is a very polarizing game. I don't see why some people say it's overrated because I love it so much, but hey, everybody is into their own thing. Maybe they just get sick of hearing about it.

But for $5? Yeah it's at least worth the risk. Either way you are only out 5 bucks.

When ps3 launched it was banned from export because the processor was so powerful. Tell me again about how powerful you gaming pc is.

Ff7 is overrated but don't get me wrong it is a classic. I dont think it aged well but for $5 I recommend it if you havnt played it yet.

I bought FF VII and FF VIII during the sale. It's only ten dollars in total. If you like it, then you'll have a 30+ hour game on your console. If you don't, then you're out five dollars.

All of the Final Fantasy games in the PS store are worth the $5. Besides FFI and II.

I'd get as many as you can now before they jack the price up again.

I can understand if a game was 20 or 30 bucks but you make this topic about a 5 dollar game if this is a serious topic for you maybe you shouldn't be buying videogames

You release your game and it has disc locked content and day 1 dlc I will just buy your game used.
