The world of Midgar is at the mercy of energy company Shinra; only the group of mercenaries known as AVALANCHE can stop them from bleeding the planet dry of its lifeline: the liquid Mako.

Jessie Rasberry: I followed the instructions to the letter. Maybe it triggered a reaction with the mako?
Barrett Wallace: Well, let's hope the city's still in one piece.

The story holds true.
17 April 2020 | by atkinsonryan-70311See all my reviews

This game is technically perfect, (albeit the occasional camera issue) and it holds true to the story the original wanted to tell but couldnt. Its a wonderful tribute to the original and leaves the sense of a huge promise that has yet (but will) be fulfilled in the future. We believe in you Kitase and Nomura!

With praises that send the rocket into outer space! -Anon
