Pocket Gamer

A classic RPG, but not a classic port

from Pocket Gamer
It might not be the greatest port of Square Enix's masterpiece, but it's good enough to scratch your nostalgia behind the ears... Full review
TouchArcade

This is actually a perfectly serviceable version of Final Fantasy 7

from TouchArcade

Setting aside the lack of a decent save function and a couple of bugs, this is probably the best Final Fantasy 7 port iOS gamers could have reasonably expected. That said, although I don't think Square had many good options here, the lack of touch controls, the borders that appear on many devices, and the overall grainy look of the game are certainly things that prospective buyers will want to keep in mind. Support for MFi controllers, iCloud, and the addition of a couple of cheat options are welcome, but I really do wish Square Enix had done better by the save system while they were doing...

The inelegant interface doesn’t really get in the way of actually playing the game

from 148Apps
It’s still really cool to be able to play Final Fantasy VII on my phone, though. The inelegant interface doesn’t really get in the way of actually playing the game (just looking at it), and all the other mobile-centric tweaks (max stats, turning off encounters, cloud saves) feel right at home in a mobile port. There’s little reason to pick this version over the PC or even the PSN versions, but if you like the idea of reliving the 80+ hour epic on the go it’s not a bad choice... Full review

The game is a little expensive and it’s hard to get past just how awful the controls are

from SlashGear

So, what’s the takeaway? Final Fantasy VII is still one of the best games ever released, its story is impeccable, and after nearly 20 years, it still looks pretty good on a mobile device. But the game is a little expensive and it’s hard to get past just how awful the controls are. If you’re an old-time fan of the Final Fantasy series or you just want to see what all the hype is about, check the game out. But if you don’t feel like spending $15.99 on a game that’s 20 years old and has its fair share of issues, stay away – at least until its controls can be... Full review

Faithful port of the beloved RPG, active combat system holds up well

from PC Magazine

Final Fantasy VII, the game that either saved JRPGs or ruined them forever, arrives on the iPad mostly unscathed.Who knows when the Final Fantasy VII PS4 remake will see the light on day. Heck, I suspect the reason this $15.99 iPad app is so expensive is because its revenue is directly funding that costly project. That and the developers know diehards will pay any price. If you have a PC, the comparably priced Steam version might be the better option, just because you can use a real controller.

Even if the remake was out tomorrow, though, I would still recommend at least checking ou... Full review

MeriStation

Gameplay poorly adapted to the touch interface

from MeriStation

Final Fantasy VII comes as a surprise to our IOS devices with a direct port of the Steam version, which results in minimal graphical improvements over the original title PSX using filters, although the passage of time does not forgive, especially in HD large screen diagonal of our iPad. Although this conversion brings a series of conditions which are, at least, peculiar. So, the gameplay suffers through a rough and awkward interface that aims to emulate the original controls with a handful of virtual buttons on screen, which is aggravated in the fighting. On the other hand, it offers the po... Full review
