A true remake of one of the best games of all time
Final Fantasy VII Remake had big boots to fill but it does not disappoint. The game takes near everything about the original game and reimagines it perfectly, with quality of life updates, way more added story and beautiful graphics that let fans see the a Final Fantasy universe like they never have before.
The music will just blow you away with how well some of the original tracks have been reimagined and how seamlessly they blend in and out of the background at the start and end of battles and different locations. If you are a player of the previous game, do not go in with the mindset that this game is just an update, there are new bosses, dialogs and event that happen, but none which take away from the original in anyway.
The only very small downside was the controls which can take some time to get used to, especially for traditional Final Fantasy fans who are used to turn based battles.
All in all Final Fantasy VII Remake is a must for any previous fan of played the game and also if you're not a fan and love vast stories with tight RPG mechanics. You will not regret playing this game if it even slightly appeals to you!
