Square Enix tells a smaller, more personal Final Fantasy 7 tale and marries it with a smart mashup of action and RPG gameplay to deliver a must-play experience. Its PS5 version realizes the world of Midgar with stunning new detail.

In the original game, I visited Wutai more because I was a completionist than anything. But with the events of the base game and the Intermission DLC, I’m pumped to see Yuffie’s homeland, what’s going on with Avalanche there, what Shinra’s doing, and possibly the resolution with Don Coreno. When Final Fantasy 7 Remake was first announced, I was hoping for a game that was pretty much 1:1 with the original. However, Square Enix’s direction with FF7 Remake has impressed me with how the extra worldbuilding and tweaks to the plot have enhanced a game I already cherished. I can’t wait to play the second part, and this DLC was a great morsel to tide me over until then.

Not only improving on the visuals and giving players a much requested Photo Mode, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade also adds the stellar Yuffie focused Intermission DLC that is an absolute must play for fans of the original and new game alike.

As a complete package, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade just feels like the definitive version of an already perfect game. And the addition of Episode INTERmission is a great excuse to bring old players back for new content (or just a solid extra couple of chapters for new players).

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade brings the storied game to the PlayStation 5 along with a new standalone adventure starring Yuffie, giving fans new insight into the story. It also makes the wait for the next full chapter all but unbearable.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade adds a nice new short story with memorable characters and moments to the original package and fixes all the technical problems with the original one. There is also a new mini-game which you’ll probably sink a lot of time into and the action is even more bombastic than the original release.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was already an outstanding release, but Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade SOMEHOW makes it even better. Whether it’s with the improved visuals, the smoother performance, the faster load times, or the additional content that fleshes out the Final Fantasy VII Remake universe further, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade offers something to please everyone. I don’t care if you poured hundred of hours into the base game already… this is one PlayStation 5 port that you simply should NOT ignore. And by the way, Square Enix… I’ll NEVER stop pronouncing Yuffie’s name as yuff-ee.

INTERmission is a classy addition to one of last year’s best games, which itself runs a little better now on PS5. It’s great to see Yuffie again, brought up-to-date to match the rest of the cast and providing her uniquely wide-eyed perspective on Midgar. We’re ready to move on from the great city now, but this is a fine farewell party.

Square Enix did an amazing job with the port of FF7 Remake on PC. The game runs like a dream and can exceed the console versions in terms of visuals and performance, with a beefy PC. The keyboard controls are functional, but the game was originally designed with a controller in mind, so there's only so much that can be done in this regard. FF7 Remake on PC is the total package in terms of content and performance, and the people who have waited patiently for the game can be assured that the PC version is a high-quality offering, with a more complete version of the story than what was available in the PS4 version at launch.

While it is the same game at heart, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade brings the first part of the remake to new heights with a 60 FPS gameplay option, some quality of life enhancements, much improved visuals, and a very fun new story episode starring Yuffie. The new tweaks and additions do not alter how the game feels and play, but there is no denying that they do make Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade the best way to enjoy one of the best role-playing games put out by Square Enix in the past few years.

There are several reasons that lead us to consider Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade the definitive role of the already superlative action RPG that last year saw the reborn capital of Mako Energy. If the new lighting system devised by Square Enix and the properly redesigned textures have solved the vast majority of the problems that plagued the solid PS4 version, the almost zero loading times and the 60 fps guaranteed by performance mode represent a valid incentive to return once again to the streets of Midgar and be bewitched by its beauty. As for episode intermission, the DLC has effectively reintroduced the adorable Yuffie, cementing its role within the seventh final fantasy, but in our opinion the paid content presents a rather exosive entrance ticket and far from proportionate to the low longevity.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a worthy return to Midgar with a number of visual enhancements. The Yuffie chapter is amazing to play and a worthy way to look forward to the sequel to this reimagining of Cloud and co.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a must-have game for any player. Intergrade further enhances this package, offering a very polished technical look with beautiful graphics. The novelty is the Episode INTERmission which, despite not being exactly mandatory, offers a new story, some new elements in combat and plenty of challenges. It's not exactly short in content, but its price is slightly above what it offers.

Overall, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a great upgrade to an already amazing experience. The main game is even better with sharp visuals, enhanced performance, and speedy load times. We even get an extra photo mode and a challenging new boss fight that digs deeper into the lore. As for Episode INTERmission, the star attraction, it adds a fun new story to enjoy. Yuffie is a joy to witness, adding a charming ray of sunshine to the setting of Midgar. She gives us a small glimpse of the story’s future, but it seems like it’ll be worth the wait. Hopefully, Square Enix can manage to meet the expectations of fans for the next part.

You should absolutely get Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. It's easy to be critical and nitpick, but it's worth remembering we're looking at the DLC for one of the best and most-loved games of the PS4. The PS5 upgrade for Intergrade looks and feels incredible, and the chance to play as Yuffie is warmly received, especially when she completely changes the tone to something more light-hearted. However, the DLC isn't quite perfect and, despite the filler, it feels very short for its price, especially if you're not interested in the side missions.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade comes to PC a year and a half after its debut on PS4, with a polished version that is also spectacular in the graphic while maintaining the same virtues and "problems" in its design and playable matter.

Intergrade is a decent upgrade to a fantastic game. While some of the new features like haptic feedback leave a lot to be desired, the INTERmission DLC is a blast with some truly incredible gameplay, music, and characters that makes this worth getting if you already own a PS5.
