I just now got around to playing it, and my oh my am I glad I preordered. I'm not completely sold on the battle system as it goes through tougher and tougher enemies to come, but everything else about the demo is just... wow. If they can keep that going through the entire first episode (and of course the later ones), this seems like it could be the best game Squenix have ever made.

I'll have to check it out. I loved the original and thought about playing again recently. I love all the new designs so far.

I rarely bother playing demos but I did give this a go and it did put a smile on my face, definitely has the right feel. Will be very interesting to see how the rest of the game is. My pre-order has been delayed due to stock issues, I don't mind too much considering the circumstances, I just hope I'm not waiting several weeks or months.

Amazon has flip-flopped repeatedly on whether I'll get my copy on release day, with all of the pandemic issues. Currently my delivery date is the 14th, but I'm curious as to when it will show up knowing that in some areas of the world players already have their copies.

Yeah apparently Square Enix sent the European and Australian copies a few weeks early because of everything so were like "we have no control over the actual release date there now".

I mean, the full version is on our doorstep, but I'm coming to this post late!

This demo was great, I'm sold, if not for current situations and layoffs. I'm hoping we'll get caught up enough with some support or I'll get back to work come the summer and be able to buy it.

Exploring the environments in such a new way is great, and I really like how fluid the combat is. There's a clear learning curve, but once mastered, it'll be a hecka fun system.

Played the demo and it was awesome!

Can't wait to get my 1st class edition. Waiting for the package to arrive from the Square Enix Store. It has been sent last Friday from France.

I was lucky enough to play the Mako Reactor section at London Comic Con last year - no PS4 though - so it will be a while before I play the remake.

Again, I'm sorry to harp on about this but I want people who're interested to know Kupocon are live streaming interviews on Facebook with a bunch of the FFVII remake voice actors TOMORROW! Details are in General Topics
