Well, that was unexpected. You read correctly: Final Fantasy VII has finally hit Steam.
Generally considered the best Final Fantasy game by people who haven’t played Final Fantasy VI, FF7 charts the adventures of ex-SOLDIER Cloud. It all starts off with him selling his services to an eco-terrorist group, and inevitably ends up with him and his allies trying to save the planet from an apocalyptic threat. It is, genuinely, pretty damn good if you’re a fan of JRPGs.
The version on Steam appears to be the same PC version that went on sale on Square Enix’s website awhile ago. As such, it features achievements, a character booster to prevent you from getting stuck/getting bored/having to grind, and cloud saving. (Although, curiously, it does appear that cloud saving is basically required – “Uninstalling the game will delete any save files stored locally on your PC”, apparently.)
£9.99 to you, squire.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
