2Final Fantasy VII Remake
We were dubious when it was announced that Final Fantasy VII was to get a full remake. It’s one of the best JRPGs of all time, after all, and we just didn’t know if a remake could live up to expectations. The good news is that it does. And then some.
Covering just a part of Final Fantasy VII‘s epic story, Final Fantasy VII Remake confines its events to Midgar, a city overshadowed by the Shinra Electric Power Company. With its machines sucking the Earth’s lifeblood dry, Cloud Strife, a former Shinra SOLDIER, is hired by a terrorist group known as Avalanche to take action.
The twist in Final Fantasy VII Remake is that its less of an outright remake and more of a sequel. So, whether you’ve played the original or not, you’ll get a lot out of it. Even more surprising is how well its turn-based battle system has been translated into a real-time one. Needless to say, if you’re after the best JRPGs on PS4, you need to play Final Fantasy VII Remake.
