Did you see what I did there, with the title?😁 

Be warned I'm a huge Final Fantasy 7 fan so this post will be extremely biased.

I make no apologies!😅

The Graphics/Art Style
I feel like Square perfectly reimagined the look and feel of Final Fantasy 7 for a new generation. Nothing else needs to be said. As a fan of the original that has replayed the game on every single PlayStation to date, the new graphics look incredible to me!

Boss Fights
The boss fights are epic!🤩 They feel much more dramatic then in the previous games. I can tell that the devs put a lot of effort in to making each one feel unique and playout differently.

The Story
They very cleverly made Final Fantasy 7 Remake a sequel even while following the same events as the first game(on disc 1). I suspect that the game will begin to diverge very quickly in part 2 of the remake. There is so much story left to tell, so many places to visit, that its going to be awhile before they get to wrap things up. The way they did the story is perfect compromise. Old fans can still see their favorite characters and locations reimagined with next gen graphic. but at the same time be on the edge of their seat, because as we go forward, nobody can guess what's going to happen next!

Honeybee Inn Dance Sequence 
OMG! That dance sequence at the Honey Bee Inn took me by complete surprise!☺️ It was absolutely hilarious, definitely a stand out moment. I think it stole the show, in terms of memorable moments in the game for me. I can't wait to see how they bring the golden saucer to life!

Expanded interaction with Avalanche
I loved how Square gave us some more time to interact with the different members of Avalanche. It brings them to life a little bit more. Sneaking in to Jessie's house was a nice little touch which gave us an extra attachment to Jessie. They also made us appreciate Biggs a lot more too. This helps to add some weight to the third act of the game. Something I felt was missing in the first game until we wake up in jail and start to follow that trail of blood up to the top of the tower near the end of disc 1.

The Shinra Stairs!
I absolutely loved that they kept this part in the game. And they made it more into a proper race. I'll be honest, I got 2nd, I wasn't too pleased about that, it seemed like I ran out of stamina too fast. But it was just as classic and just as fun as the very first time I played it. I feel like unnecessary scenes like this are what really helped to make FF7 a classic. I hope they add more in part 2!

The Ending
The ending sequence and the boss fight with you know who was fantastic! I felt like I was playing final fantasy advent children😅. It was just so epic! And at the same time very meta. I didn't train up my guys a lot as I was just really enjoying the story so I lost a few times. But I loved every minute of it!

Give me more Square! Don't make me wait too long!
