I'm very mixed on the subject. I'd LOVE a remake...provided they dont change things....which we've all seen CC....They WILL.
Theyve just changed so much about it...they'd probably add Genesis and more Zack seens and change dialouge to be PG appropriate....which is horrible...imagine barret saying things like "I'm gonna kick your butt!" ....now THATS gangsta.
I don't have any clue how they would go about making cloud dress as a woman, and somehow smuggle his buster sword and normal clothes into Don Corneo's with up to date graphics....back in 97 it was ok to do a little spin and vuala!....But I don't think that would fly very well with new graphics.
I was extremely excited to see a prequel comming out where you play as Zack. It filled me with joy....but when I played it I realised how different my image of zack was from square's. I pictured him to act more like Angeal...just without all the honor and dreams....I thought CC would revolve more around the Wutai war....but no we get to fight 4 wutai soldiers and thats somehow a war?....anyone see the full scale epic battle in dirge of cerberus? THATS a war....and it was just one battle.
CC should have focused more on the war...It should have been dark, morbid, and sad. Instead its like...."yay we're goin to war!!!" It's almost like Shinras just a big highschool >.>
There should have been tanks...corpses....Zack suppose to be a badass...not Sora with black hair. I mean come on! ITS SHINRA!!! This is the one game where they could've been as ruthless as they wanted...
And I know we're talking about a remake here and not CC...but these are my reasons for being scepticle. I've seen their trend....Squaresoft was awesome and origional...square enix is all about flashy bubbly anime graphics....I KNOW theyre gonna add and subtract and theyll definatley screw up the voice acting....
On the other hand I'd love to see FF7 as a hack and slash rather than turn based. If they did that....maybe hit R1 or R2 to switch characters? Thatd be awesome. But if it means creating a whole new generation of FF7 fans that arent really FF7 fans....then no...I'd rather just dream about it.
When an artist creates something it no longer belongs to them...it belongs to us...the world lol. And square doesn't give two sh*ts about what the fans think. Thats why I love KOEI.
Squares kinda like the game version of Metallica....they use to be AWESOME....then they started sucking and sueing their fans XD
