    He! The video game world… I notice most readers look down on gamers… as the sort of hybrid that I am I’ve always wondered why… I mean they are basically a book! wait! How dare you say that a book and a game are sort of the same? OMG here we go again! Ok stupid imaginary voice inside my head… I’ma explain this to you so you can stop bugging me and let me finish my review; when reading a book you are either transported to another place… you get to see into somebody else’s mind… you see an either He! The video game world… I notice most readers look down on gamers… as the sort of hybrid that I am I’ve always wondered why… I mean they are basically a book! wait! How dare you say that a book and a game are sort of the same? OMG here we go again! Ok stupid imaginary voice inside my head… I’ma explain this to you so you can stop bugging me and let me finish my review; when reading a book you are either transported to another place… you get to see into somebody else’s mind… you see an either familiar or fictional world from the point of view of other people… in a video game… well you do the same shit! Sometimes it’s an awesome world sometimes is some stupid crap that you just want to get over with.. . ha! But how about text books? Are your fucking games the same as a text book? erm… the army uses video games to actually train their forces… you can also learn math, grammar, and all the stupid crap they teach you in school on some games… and just like real world text books the video games ermm text games (?) are the same! They usually so crappy that nobody wants to play em! Now can you shut the fuck up and leave me finish talking about Final Fantasy? well since I can’t argue with that… I’ma have to do just that… ok back to the review… I’m not reviewing this Strategy guide… cuz I’m sure is crappy as fuck! I’m reviewing Final Fantasy VII (AKA: the game that traumatized me) this is going to be a nice little series where I find the strategy guide of games I love and review the actual game not the book… have a problem with that? Hey just close the fucking window! Final Fantasy VII, I got my copy a few days after it came out, always been a huge FF fan… and this thing was getting the best reviews ever! So when I finally got my copy I did total lock down with it! Just me, FFVII, a dictionary and Coke mixed with instant espresso to keep me awake! The moment you select “new game” you just get hit by this cinematic of a sky full with stars… and this beautiful girl wearing a pink dress and a red idk how is called thingy, carrying a basket of flowers… and then bang! The camera does this amazing soon out and you get this vista of some weird, dystopian looking city… and all I remember thinking was “WOW! Who was her?” this is the part were I sound either corny as hell or crazy as fuck! Or a little bit of both.. I totally fell in love with that character from that scene on… but the game don’t take you to her right away… first you need to be a SOLDIER well an ex SOLDIER actually, still! You go into battle! Just like that! SQUARE* plays with your feelings just like that! First cute girl is introduced… then cute girl gets taken away and you go fight… now that I think of it…. I should have seen coming what happened next… I should have know that the only thing that was beautiful in my life to that day was about to be taken away from me… but I was young and stupid! I wouldn't have believed it even if somebody told me it was coming… any way back to the game. Our main character’s name is Cloud he was a SOLDIER a special breed of humans infused with Mako Energy something like Rambo on crack + some Gandalf DNA on it too! but now he works for AVALANCHE a terrorist** group that wants to stop Shinra Corp from destroying their world by taking The Mako energy… blah blah blah, the rights of the planet and all that crap, some supposedly hot chick is tagging along***, fight the bad guys show em what’s all about BORING! Where the fuck is the chick from the opening scene? Well our hero finds himself running away from the authorities… after his big battle scenes and he bumps into her… and who could have imagine! It was love on first sight! Ha! Her name is Aeris and she lives in the Ghetto… she sells the flowers she grows on an abandoned church to make a living… and she is sweet as fuck! I mean adorable! Then bla bla bla, cloud may be the fucked up result of an experiment, more talk with that stupid chick who is supposed to be hot, Aeris is a direct descendant of an ancient race that used to control a lot of power, blah, blah, blah, ancient powers and enter Sephiroth this dude since to know something about our hero’s past… so he sets on a quest to find out more about all of this… then bang there was an alien who clashed in our planet back in the days and tried to destroy everything there… but the ancients managed to stop it, and it was all good! Then some creepy looking scientist founded the remains of the alien creature thing… and made Sephiroth and a bunch of other crazy things… and all hell broke lose! Sephiroth goes crazy tries to destroy the world and well… and I’m there like digging all this crap! I’m like “uh, this is some deep shit!” “holy crap, Cloud may not be human” “Aeris is so cute” then when I’m finally into the ancient city of the ancients (ha! I’m so funny!) the unthinkable happens! Aeris separates from the group… and when I finally find her… thinking that I’m about to get a love scene or something… what do I get? Fucking Sephiroth comes in and killed her! now this is the part were I go insane thinking that maybe I did something wrong… that I fucked up somewhere in the game… that she is coming back to life…. Remember this is 1997! The internet wasen’t what it is today… this was a new game… there wasn’t much info out there in the third world about it! It took 3 days of me re starting from my old save games, from looking in the internet for answers… hell I think I even had an intervention from one of my friends trying to convince me that Aeris was not coming back! That she was dead dead! That was the day I swore my oath! To kill fucking Sephiroth! I’m not going to bored y’all even more with what happens next… I honest to god didn’t care! All I wanted was Sephiroth’s head on a plate! I went on an compulsive leveling up campaign that eventually teach me the skills to play while I sleep (that aint no joke nor exaggeration) all to one single minded end…. To fucking oblibiate Sephiroth… it took me over 120 hours to unlock everything on the game… but when I did… I’m not going to give you the details of what I did to that asshole… but let us just say that a level 99 Omnislash can do wonders for over 100 hours of repressed anger! This guide proly sucks… and if you ever need help on this game don’t hesitate on asking me… I’ma give it a 5 but it goes not to the guide… but to Final Fantasy! *:before you do a SQUARENIX complain keep in mind that I’m reviewing Final Fantasy VII! 1997 duh! **: i dont care what anybody says! AVALANCH is a terrorist organization! ***: i seriusly hate how SQUARE tried to sell Tifa as an Aeris replacement as romantic interest for cloud...

    I should play this game again. I love it. They need to revamp it though. The controls drive me nuts though since I've played other games. I should play this game again. I love it. They need to revamp it though. The controls drive me nuts though since I've played other games.

    Holy shit, back in its day when it came out, FF7 was FUCKING EPIC. Even today, over 20 years later, it remains one of the most iconic games. It is possible to beat the game without this guide, but FF7 had so many side quests, hidden items, etc etc that this guide is absolutely essential to the completist. Even if you talked to all the townspeople/NPCs in this game, explored all the rooms in the dungeons and caves, etc etc, you're guaranteed to miss SOMETHING.

Even if you talked to all the townspeople/NPCs in this game, explored all the rooms in the dungeons and caves, etc etc, you're guaranteed to miss SOMETHING. And with a game as complex as this, you'll likely miss a good handful of things. I mean, Good Lord, the Chocobo breeding in itself... but you absolutely had to do it if you wanted the most powerful Summon Materia in the game, and you had to breed several generations of Chocobos to achieve this. Thus guide helps to take much of the frustration out of that. I give the game itself 4 stars, but this guide gets 5.

    This book is chock full of errors, but that isn't why it gets one star. This walkthrough spoils virtually every major plot point without warning in a game that is very story driven. This guide has the potential to ruin someone's experience of the game, and I'm sure it has. Cassady has thankfully improved as a gaming writer since then, but this is a shining example of how not to write a strategy guide.

    I actually hate myself for not including reading these game books that actually dug out of my packed boxes this year. I was doing some spring/fall cleaning and going through my old stuff when I came across them. This just so happens to be the very first game book I ever bought. (Which coincides with the very first game I bought for the PSX after playing the PC demo. I wish I remembered where my FFVII demo came from - it was a part of a software package). I'm showing my age. =___= At any rate, I us I actually hate myself for not including reading these game books that actually dug out of my packed boxes this year.

Seeing how other people build their worlds, characters, story summaries, can be a good guide as to how to structure outlines for the fiction you write and what aspects to delve into if you want to make your stories have more meat. Think about how many hours it takes to get through a game and then how many hours it probably took to plan all those story pathways, twists, and character revelations. It's pretty fascinating (and awesome). And probably yet another reason why I love playing games in my spare time.

    This is an older strategy guide. While they tried to fit all the details in there's actually a good chunk of information missing. It's a good guide, but it's lacking.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I owned the PC game in college and just recently had a desire to play it again. So I bought the PlayStation version and dug out and dusted off my old PS2. (idk, maybe nostalgia), Anyway, I found it to be fairly accurate with the exception of one materia cave (need a black chocobo, not green or blue), and a couple things in the Gold Saucer. Also, the cursed ring in Mideel was not discussed. Enemy skill Chocobuckle not given in the guide. Ask me if you want to know how to get it.

Also, the cursed ring in Mideel was not discussed. Enemy skill Chocobuckle not given in the guide. Ask me if you want to know how to get it. Never got Aeris' Great Gospel limit break but I suspect that's because I just wanted to move forward quicker in the game and didn't take the much time needed to move through her limits. Never did beat Ruby weapon in college and finding it difficult to do so now. Trick to success in the game is to get your gold chocobo early so you have a lot of time to grow ALL of your material (red, green and yellow anyway) to obtain Master Materia from Bugenhagen. You can obtain many many ribbons in the game by going to the Crater and morphing a Master Tonberry. But he has like 45,000 HP, so good luck. I think you can also morph the pollen guy Ho-Chu in the Battle Square for a ribbon. If you miss Trine enemy skill (only available from Yuffie defeating her dad in the pagoda tower boss fight in Wutai, OR the dragon on Gaea's Cliffs in the winter area of the game), don't save- try again b/c there is NO other way to get it. Pandora's box enemy skill is tricky. Save right before fighting Dragon Zombie in Crater. Put ALL enemy skill materia on the same character. If Dragon Zombie casts Pandora's Box on that person, all enemy skill materias will learn it. If Dragon casts it on any other character, quit game without saving and try again. It's the ONLY way. He only casts once EVER. Wish there was something else on which to spend the many millions of gil I now have. I have taken to throwing it in battle or buying weapons for Yuffie, Cloud and Cid to throw in battle as they take off thousands of HP from enemies.

    Thanks to the advice of an ex-girlfriend I never spoil a game by using a strategy guide on the first play through. This guide is an excellent resource and 99% accurate. As a game FFVII gets 5 stars but I'm not reviewing the game at the moment. If you have already played this game once through and are looking for a more in depth experience playing FFVII then pick up this guide.

    This is a great strategy guide! I loved it when i first beat Final Fantasy VII and needed the extra push to find all the hidden items and summons. It gives really decent strategies and what items and materia combinations are the best. I recommend this to those either stuck in the game, those who want to find everything, or to those who collect Final Fantasy!

    Helpful in some places, but I remember finding inaccurate information in it, or things missing. If I'd ever seen a different FFVII strategy guide, I'd pick it up. My sister's replaying the game now and keeps cursing this guide. Helpful in some places, but I remember finding inaccurate information in it, or things missing.

    A timeless tour de force of life, love and giant yellow birds. Destined to the record of classic literature and to the minds and hearts of both the layman and intellectual for millennia to come.

    Pretty bad for a strategy guide. Sure there are the basics, but none of the details that you would actually want, and the information is all scattered, too.
