Last year, we got a remake of the seventh part of the Final Fantasy game series, after a very long wait that exceeded 20 years of repeated requests from fans to produce this remake, which Square Winx did in the best possible way in the first episode of the remake, which provided many hours of gameplay and a great expansion For the story of the original game, giving all the characters a greater role in the events, and you can read the full review of that remake by clicking here. In this review, we will focus only on the improvements to the Intergrade version of the remake on the PlayStation 5, and we will focus on talking about the additional INTERmission episode in the story of the game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is the improved PlayStation 5 version of the game, which offers better 4K graphics and the ability to play the game with the “Graphics Mode” option, which shows the game in the best possible way, and the “Performance Mode” option, which allows players to play it as smoothly as possible at 60 frames per second At the expense of high definition resolution, this version also has the option to shoot at any time within the game for fans of this addition to the games and with the improvement of the level of textures, lighting, and graphic details.
The most important aspect of this version is the exclusive addition to the PlayStation 5 version of the game, and here we are talking about the new INTERmission episode that allows us to take the adventure with the character Yuffie Kisaragi, in the original version of Final Fantasy 7. We got to know this character after we left Midger, but in this episode we will learn about the character’s story inside The city, the events of this episode revolve around the character Yuffie Kisaragi, who specializes in magic balls or Materia, and her goal in this adventure is to storm the headquarters of the Shinra Corporation to obtain a special Materia that helps her homeland Wutai, accompanied by the character Sonon and certainly the famous Avalanche organization that helps her achieve her goal.
The playing system in this episode is much faster than the remake game due to the fighting system that Yuffie uses, as it relies a lot on quick direct conflicts and the “combo” successive strikes system. In terms of the fighting and playing system, the character of Sonon is to help you in the fights and with a slight progression in the events of the story and plays an important role in the events here until the end of this episode, but unlike the first episode of the remake, we cannot play here with the character of Sonon in the fights far from giving him some commands But the full control will be only for the character of Yuffie and with the common blows between the two characters.
One of the new additions to this game is the presence of a simple strategic game within the game that you can play and with the presence of its own club within the seventh section of the city of Medger, which helps you to obtain magic balls or Materia, this episode offers with it about 4 hours of play or less, depending on your style of exploration and as it was As with the original version, the adventure is quite linear, but it offers a more fun atmosphere than the first episode due to the character of Yuffie, who is comical and optimistic, the story of this episode is interesting and will encourage players to finish it to see how the adventure of Yuffie and Sonon ends and connect it with the main story of the game, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is definitely worth a try for those who missed the original remake on the PlayStation 4, and the new additional episode offers additional hours of gameplay and an exciting story.
This game was reviewed with a PlayStation 5 version that was provided by the publisher before the game was released on the market.
