Okay time for an awesome review I have been itching to review and here it comes!
Yes it is a review of Final Fantasy Dirge of Cerberus! I am going to get right to it!
Okay so the story is that their is an organization called Deepground and they are located under the Old Shinra Power company! They were a secret program that in my opinion went horribly wrong! Before the members of Deepground were with Deepground they were regular people leading ordinary lives until Shinra Kidnapped them and turned them into fighting machines, but their judgement and humanity was lost somewhere along the way! The Action actually begins in I think in Kalm where they are celebrating some kind of event with a festival! Vincent Valentine is also in the City of Kalm when Deepground shows up and kidnaps alot of the people in the city!
Okay so I will start with the Graphics part of this review! Well the Graphics are pretty amazing in this game But that is what you expect from a Final Fantasy game right? Some of the cut scenes look just like a CGI movie and that made me really happy! Overall the Graphics are perfect and I give it a 10 out of 10!
Next is the story! Okay so if you haven't guessed you take the role of Vincent Valentine and play through his story of his journey and find out what happened to him all them years ago in the Shinra manor and what he has come to become! So It all starts at the Mako Cannon at the end of Final Fantasy VII in which they are clearing everyone out around the cannon but they see that someone is on the cannon itself so Vincent investigates and finds the person dead or unconcious either way and Vincent pulls out his gun to finish him off but then he just disappeares which it turns out that the person is actually Hojo (Crisis Core reference)but then it skips 3 years and continues with Deepground's appearance in Kalm in which Vincent intervines and saves as much of the population that he can! This game leads Vincent to find out that he actually has something sinister inside him........Chaos! I give the story a 10 out of 10 also!
Next comes the controls and how well the game handles! Okay so I loved how the game handles and the controls that were chosen for this game, they worked so well with the controller I couldn't have done it better myself! There is actually a jump button in this game which was awesome because I haven't seen a jump feature in a Final Fantasy Game before it was nice to have that added in this game! I give the controls a 10 as well!
I love the soundtrack to this game it is amazing! Most of the songs are performed by Gackt which I have never heard of them but they are very good with their featured song Redemption which is extremely good! and the voice overs for the characters was just incredible if I do say so myself! I give the sound 10 too!
Over all this game is perfect I love it and all I hear about this game is positive comments! This is a 10 out of 10 game it is perfection!
Well I hope you enjoyed this review of FFVII DoC and if you are willing to go the distance you will unlock a secret ending that is awesome *Hint Hint* it has something to do with Crisis Core and a Continuation of the FFVII series!
Now here is a trailer type thing to get some hype up on it! And the song in it is Redemption by Gackt!
First off, Cloud you did another great job with another review! ^^
And, I do have to agree that the game seemed, at times, choppy to me. I am a huge FF VII fan, so I was more than eager to get the game and start a new quest! But, I became little by little, disappointed with the overall story. The game play was very different as were the controls. And even though it had the characters I just love, I don't know how much replay value this one will have for me...or may even get out of me. XD
Overall: Liked it, but some things changed would give it more appeal.
