"Can an RPG get any better?"
I'll review the most important aspects of an RPG:
Storyline: Extremly interesting! I played on and on to see the developpement of the story. My social life took a stop once I started playing. I was so sad when I finished it, I was like , already(It didn't feel like 50 hours). Some of the characters are kind of cold and don't have much personality. But Cloud and Barret are my two all-time videogame favourite characters. The plot was the first one to be that serious on the Playstation. I see no possibility of an RPG getting better than this (except maybe FFVIII).
Graphics:Whoa!!, its safe to say no RPG has come close to the quality of FFVII's pre-rendered cinemas. The battle spells are mostly breathtaking. This is a game for people who like RPG's with a technical flair. The only flaw is that, like most RPG's, the characters are super-deformed when not in battle.
Sound: Outstanding!!! The tunes always go well with the area you are travelling in. The music against the final boss(dear old sephiroth) is probably the best ever for a videogame.
Battle system: It is fast paced but the spells(especially the summons) can take a little too much time. This is the best you can get from a turned base RPG.
Outside story/dungeon stuff: There is so much sub-quests in this game that there is actually too much too do. The mini-game section of this game is the best ever, ranging from motorcycling to chocobo racing plus much more. Anyway, FFVII is now in greatest hits and costs like 25$ U.S. So if you haven't got it, get off from your computer and go buy it NOW!!!!!!
