Final Fantasy 7 PC Remake Described As 'Terrible'

It's safe to say that Final Fantasy VII Remake has been… controversial. There's no doubt that the game looks remarkable with its incredible visual fidelity and slick animations, but a lot of people have criticised the port's weak gameplay that flies in the face of the original game's charm.

Another big problem is possibly only developing half of the game to release the rest of it later? Final Fantasy fans weren't happy about it - and they still aren't. The game has been great for new fans, adopting a new fanbase separate entirely from the original game. As a result, a lot of people were looking forward to the game's PC port - but it doesn't look like it was worth it.

Why Do Fans Hate The Final Fantasy VII Remake PC Port?

The PlayStation exclusivity of Final Fantasy VII Remake has finally come to a close with the release of its PC port, but fans aren't exactly enthused about it - because supposedly, it's not very good. At all.

Members of Digital Foundry, known for knowing their stuff about tech, have reported on Twitter that the PC port does not live up to the hype.

"Alex sent his clips over for us to check out and, yeah, the PC port of FFVIIR is terrible" said John Linneman, quoting another tweet from Alexander Battaglia. "He captured this using an RTX3090 + 190900k at just 1080p and it's a mess. The smooth presentation was central to its story telling and this version compromises it." Yikes.

A problem with the game, according to Battaglia, is that it insists that it runs at 60fps when it very clearly isn't. Something must have been lost in translation in code, because it seems the game is presenting what it expects the game to be running like, but clearly it's not able to keep up with itself.

What Are The Final Fantasy VII Remake Port PC Specs?

Though these reports were made from a pretty tough PC, there are still requirements to meet in order to reach the shambolic port's expectations.

In order to run the game at 1080p and 60fps (supposedly), you'll need at least a Nvidia GTx 1080. You're also going to need a lot of memory because the port comes in at around 100GB required to keep the game running happily. Install Final Fantasy VII on an SSD if you can, too, as texture popping was a problem on the PS4 version.

It's a shame that the long-awaited release demands so much especially after its failures as a port have been reported. Sorry, PC users - maybe it's not your time to jump back onto the Final Fantasy train.
