Final Fantasy 7 Remake has finally arrived, so it’s time to join Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, and Barret on their lengthy, chaotic journey. Unlike most remakes, this one only consists of roughly one-third of the original Final Fantasy 7 story. This is because the entire game has been remade and now includes updated graphics, voice work, a new combat system, and additional content not in the original game. Thankfully, despite only being the first of three remakes, this game has around 30-40 hours of content if you are playing on the Normal difficulty.

Along with the main campaign, there are a little over two dozen side quests that Cloud and company can complete. These are scattered throughout the campaign in key sections such as the Slums or Wall Market. Most of these side quests are fairly short, averaging around 20-30 minutes depending on your level and if you need to actually hunt down a monster. They’re a good way to gain additional experience and items, so we recommend not skipping them.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake also includes a number of mini-games such as darts or destroying numbered blocks in order to obtain a high score. These are fun distractions that will kill some time, but don’t expect to invest a lot of hours into perfecting your dart-throwing abilities. Finally, this remake has a number of collectibles for the Final Fantasy faithful such as music or Moogle Medals. The later is used to purchase special items and additional skill points for your party.
