Final Fantasy VII Remake is a remade version of one of the most popular jRPGs in history. The game was developed by the Square Enix Company and released on PS4 platform.
The story presents a world known as Gaia, in which industrial technologies interlock with traditional fantasy elements. The main hero, Cloud Strife, is an ex-soldier and a mercenary who joins the resistance movement known as Avalanche. Together with several companions he stands against a powerful corporation called Shinra. The company is exploiting life energy of the planet and by doing so may lead to the destruction of the whole world. The game has been announced as a title divided into several parts, each offering the volume of content equal to a full-sized game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS4 diverges from the basic foundations of the original game. The game is classic Japanese role-playing game in which the player can explore locations, talk, develop his characters and fight. The combat takes place using a modern, dynamic battle system similar to the one employed in the latest installments in the franchise. Each member of the party has his own unique abilities.
The most important change when comparing the game to the original Final Fantasy VII is a completely new graphic design. Instead of pre-rendered backgrounds, the game offers fully three dimensional locations which greatly improve the satisfaction of exploring the virtual world. Additionally, the character designs no longer feature super deformed images. Instead, all characters look in a much more realistic way.
