Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VII is a third-person RPG first released on the PlayStation One in 1997, eventually revamped in HD with trophy support for the PlayStation 4 in 2015, while maintaining the same graphics, story and gameplay as the original. Like in previous Final Fantasy titles, players explore a map, collecting items and fulfilling quests, while fighting randomly encountered enemies in turn-based battles. Characters may level-up by acquiring experience points earned after each battle.
The world, referred to as the Planet, is having its Lifestream energy drained by the Sinra Electric Power Company. Cloud Strife, who was once a 1st Class Soldier, joins with Avalanche, a small rebellion bent on stopping the Sinra Electric Power Company.
The original 1997 Final Fantasy VII received high praise with an average score of 95%, praised for its graphics, story, interesting characters, and gameplay.
The game allows the use of cheats, such as Turbo Mode and No Encounter Mode to make things quicker, and God Mode to make things easier. Using these cheats will not disable trophies, and make your route to the Platinum much easier. While there are a few missable trophies, most of them are quite straight forward. As long as you follow some of the guides under our Links tab, the Platinum is not particularly difficult, nor overtly time consuming.
Expect around 30-40 hours for the Platinum, depending on your use of the cheats.
Most of the missable trophies are in the first part of the game, up until the end of the City of the Ancients. These include the Consummate Cross-Dresser trophy for having Don Corneo chose Cloud over the two females, the Waiting In The Wings trophy for obtaining the Bahamut Materia, the See The Light trophy for learning the Great Gospel, and the Best Bromance trophy for going on a date with Barret in the Gold Saucer. Be sure to check out details on these trophies in the Final Fantasy VII trophy guide links under our Links tab. Also, there is a Best Bromance Walkthrough under our Links tab, as well.
Once that is all done, you can go ahead and play through the game up until the Northern Cavern, which is the final dungeon. At this point, be sure to make a separate save which you can reload later.
Now, it’s time to get all the other trophies. There are some miscellaneous ones to collect, as well as some grinding to do, especially for amassing 99,999,999 gil for the Coming Up All Nines trophy, and reaching level 99 with a character for the Liege Of Leveling trophy. Feel free to enable the cheats to make these steps much easier and quicker. Also again, check out the Final Fantasy VII trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details on what you still need.
Once all that is done, it’s time to complete the game and unlock the final trophy, A Feat Of Meteoric Proportions, as well as the Platinum. It should be noted that facing the final boss at level 99 will cause him to be stronger, which is why we recommended creating a save beforehand.
