Initial title screen with credits
First cutscene of the game... a flower girl?
The title appears at the end of a long pan back
Your hero don't even have a name yet...
However he trounces the first guards.
Levelling up screen
Shinra Corporation. Beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds
Lots of different perspectives. Here you see everything from high above
Barret attacks with his gun. The battles use dynamic camera angles
Your best friend in console RPGs: a save point
The first boss battle of the game
One of gaming's classic moments: Cloud meets Aeris. Note the atmospheric and detailed backgrounds
Cloud executes his first Limit Break against a Shinra soldier on the streets of Midgar
In a subway train. Without doubt, Midgar is an incredible location. Pity you are taken to a standard world map with tiny villages on it after you complete this part
Midgar train station. You will return here several times
Typical Midgar district. The city oozes atmosphere
Detailed locations, emotional story, goofy conversations: Final Fantasy VII :)
Yeah, back then... Nostalgic reminiscences from the past is one of FF7's main plot devices
Outside, on the 3D world map. Beautiful song accompanies the travels. In E Major :)
Battle in a rocky area. Aeris is casting Ice on the enemy. Barret is not sure which Limit Break to choose
Each town in FF7 has its own unique architecture. Beautiful design!
Bartender! Gimme... someshhng... ya know... schizophrenia-curing... Hic!!..
The dungeons in FF7 are usually rather small
The party battles a giant sandworm in a desert area
Cool! Now we've got some WHEELS!..
Ahh, the beautiful Shiva summon. Final Fantasy fans will be disappointed if they find out that the Hinduist god Shiva is actually a man...
Materia management becomes quite complex with the time
Fighting Rudy and Reno, the two so-called "Turks" (nothing to do with Turkey though), mercenaries who work for Shinra. We'll have to battle them several times during the game
Cosmo Canyon, home of Red XIII. Another beautiful, atmospheric location
Corel mine. Poor miners! I immediately think of Emile Zola's "Germinal"...
Ancient temple. Clock puzzle
Date with Aeris
Cloud has trouble
