Epic Games Store on December 16. What did the porting of last year’s smash PlayStation review go? Find out in this article.

The first Final Fantasy VII from then Squaresoft was released in 1997 for the first PlayStation, and a year later, PC owners could experience the stunning graphics and, as we’ve discovered, fate was the same for the sequel.
Despite all the sequels’ amazingness, FFVII became the most talked-about and sought-after component of the series and had Cloud, Sephiroth, and Tifa making the list of the most famous characters from the history of gaming.
In addition, Square created an amazingly gorgeous (for at the moment) CGI animated Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children that developed the tale of Part 7 and the mobile games Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII. However, their most significant ode to the classic game is The Final Fantasy VII Remake, an entirely reworked and modernized remake of the classic.
In this article, we’ll not discuss the gameplay or the remake’s plot because there’s already an extensive analysis of both the first Final Fantasy VII Remake and the native edition available for PS5 Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade available on Cubiq.ru. Make sure to check the game out if you haven’t yet!
The developers have promised us “improved textures as well as lighting and scenery.” the ability to customize photo modes supported by 4K resolutions, HDR technology, compatibility with XInput and DirectInput controllers with keyboard and mouse, and an increase of up to 120 frames per second frame rate.”
Each well-processed texture contains dozens of low-resolution components such as blurry, flat surfaces and piles of undeveloped items with blurry backgrounds and very shaded, barely noticeable reflections of mirror surfaces that are tinted.
The photo mode is included in the game; however, “detailed modification” is not the issue. It’s as straightforward as you can get. It allows you to quit the game, disable the interfaces, and if you desire the active characters, the camera refuses to separate or disappear from Cloud and can bump into any object in the surroundings.
However, you can switch to camera mode at any time, whether it’s walking through the areas as well as a fight or any cat-related scene. In the second scenario, the camera will remain stationary; however, it will block the dialog boxes. Also, since Final Fantasy VII Remake is packed with cinematic scenes that have the bokeh effect, you’ll be able to capture numerous amazing pictures.
Optimization is almost without complaints. The frames are kept between 90 and 100 FPS; in scenes,, it is about 60. Sometimes, however, at certain times, it drops to 30, sometimes even 20, but there is nothing that can be considered critical.
The processor isn’t more than 7-10% used, while it’s graphics adapter (I have Nvidia GeForce 2070 Super) is utilized 98-99% for the majority of the time. In idle times even in the menu for games.
UltraWide screens Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, however, is not able to support, but it can be played in 4K, and the game comes with a fully integrated High Dynamic Range (HDR) function that includes the ability to alter the intensity of UI interfaces.
Although Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade isn’t perfect, it has beautiful low-resolution textures, mediocre backgrounds, and lots of framerate dropouts that seem to be unavoidable. The game is playable and very beautiful as it comes with a great combat system, stunning character designs, as well as an incredibly addicting Final Fantasy VII atmosphere.
The story that we are reliving now twenty years later is an experience that’s difficult to put words into words if the story once affected your heart. The only thing that really bothers me is yet again the outrageously overpriced price.
