Critics Praise Final Fantasy Rebirth as an Impressive Sequel


Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has received glowing reviews for its stunning recreation of the classic game. The PlayStation 5 exclusive is the second part of a trilogy based on the beloved 1997 original, with improvements to its prequel. Reviewers have praised the game for its phenomenal soundtrack, confident writing, and exciting challenges. However, some have warned that players will need to invest dozens of hours to fully experience the vast amount of content in the game.

Players once again take on the role of Cloud Strife and his team in a world filled with twists and turns. The game offers a huge open world with main story content taking between 40 to 50 hours to complete, and optional side quests allowing for over 100 hours of gameplay. The game’s mini-games and addictive card game, Queen’s Blood, provide additional entertainment for players.

While some reviewers found the game to be bloated at times due to its vast amount of content, overall, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has been praised for its story, performances, and attention to character backstories. The developers have urged reviewers to avoid spoilers, particularly regarding a famous twist from the original game.

Console exclusivity has been a hot topic, with Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth optimized for the PS5. While there is speculation about the game coming to other platforms in the future, for now, it remains exclusive to PlayStation. Players can look forward to experiencing the game on PS5 next Friday.
