Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII review

Running and gunning gets basic in this firearm Fantasy

If you’re walking into this game expecting action on par with Halo or Half-Life, you’re missing the whole point of Dirge of Cerberus. Sure, the combat is trite and quite easy, but in a way, it’s supposed to be. Gamers used to turn-based skirmishes will be able to handle the it just fine. The average gameplay links the excellent storytelling together in a way that players of all skill levels can enjoy. It’s a great carrot-and-stick model for the millions of Final Fantasy VII donkeys out there.
