Square's first game into the Playstation that boosts up the RPG level in game industry...


 

It is a world that is controlled by one company: Shinra. They used to be a weapons manufacturer company until the end of the war and that was when they found a source of energy that was needed for the survival of mankind (hah, well, not really ^^): Mako. The only problem is that Mako is the life energy of the planet. Everything has energy: from the birds to the bees, the flowers to the trees. You get what I mean. If all the life energy of the planet was destroyed, however, it would crumble apart.

A group called AVALANCHE is out to stop Shinra from using its mako-sucking reactors and this is where our main character, Cloud Strife, makes his debut.

Look at all the nice water...

Cloud first appears as an arrogant mercenary-for-hire, but as the story progresses, he changes. He's still the same old Cloud, but with lots of problems ^^. The game takes a dramatic turn when a person from the past reveals his true intent...

Sephiroth, the coolest, twisted, bad guy that you'll ever see!

Cloud's goal then changes into stopping Sephiroth from taking over the world. Teaming up with childhood friend Tifa Lockheart, one armed Mister T Barret Wallace, wise feline extrordinare Red XIII (aka Nanaki), surviving Ancient flower girl Aeris Gainsborough, pesky materia ninja thief Yuffie Kisaragi, "hospitable" pilot Cid Highwind, and ex-Turk turned monster Vincent Valentine, Cloud and his friends fight for the survival of the planet against a newly revived Sephiroth, and the only key is their dearly beloved Ancient; the last of her race....

If only things were that easy....
