Review: Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a magical retelling of a timeless classic

Square Enix makes fantasy become reality. Finally.

Game director
Tetsuya Nomura
Key Credits
Motomu Toriyama (Co-director), Yoshinori Kitase (Producer)

The scale and detail of this partial remake is at times almost absurd. But this is a game full of beauty, intelligence and nostalgic power.

  • Incredibly detailed locations and characters
  • Cleverly reworked combat systems
  • The story is as powerfully emotional as ever
  • Too much padding in some sections
5 / 5
Version tested
