Critic Reviews for Final Fantasy VII

Unfortunately, the Switch version of Final Fantasy 7 has some things stacked against it when it comes to determining what the ultimate version of the game is.

One of the best JRPGs ever made. It has aged in some places more than others, but overall it's a beautiful and magic journey that any fan of the genre will enjoy. It's not the best version out there, but the fact that this is the first time launching on Nintendo and Microsoft platforms it's reason enough to celebrate.

Even with no new upgrades, Final Fantasy VII on Nintendo Switch is without a doubt the definitive way to play the game on consoles with the ability to not only play at home, but also take the game on the go.

The rough edges may be more prominent these days, but Final Fantasy VII is still one of the greatest JRPGs ever, with unsurpassed character design, world building, party customization, and music.

Final Fantasy VII is the sort of game that speaks for itself, a touchstone of game design that played a large role in setting the standard of RPGs for years to come.

Final Fantasy VII on Switch could easily have been one of the console's must have : its undeniable charm still works more than 20 years after its original release, but this stingy port still contains the horrible French localization from 1997, as well as the old PS4 bug which constantly reset the beautiful sounds of Nobuo Uematsu.

With the additional features, and the ability to take it on the go, this is the best way to experience Final Fantasy VII.
