1. Single player engagement
This is pretty simple.  It's an epic RPG, it's the DEFINITION of Single player, and it's a remake of one of the games that Kept single player alive when it started.  Easy to get lost in, believable characters, expanded plot lines.  You'll learn to love to hate Barrett, until he finally stops with the "tuff" guy act. Lots more mini games, and better ones, including a rhythm gaming section.  However you might find your self a little over whelmed.

2. Multiplayer engagement  This game has no known multiplayer yet.  Maybe available in future updates.  Again this is a tribute to Single player games, but might be a turn off to social butterflies.

3. Price point A little on the High side, this game went over budget, over time, and costs the same price as an old school nes game.  That is approx $50.  Most modern Games run either 29.99 or 39.95 at this point (Save anything named Mario or Zelda).  Might be worth it, but it's still pricey.  Might want to wait for it to come down a little.

4. Graphical Appeal: OMG this is where this game outshines the sun.  The graphics are at least Advent Children good, and the only thing stopping this game from being an instant shelf clearer is n no sex scenes, ala Dragon Age.  I literally can not find fault with the graphics whatsoever, this may be the game with the best graphics to DATE.

5. Controls and game play: THIS is where this game FAILS.  The controls, esp in battle, are counter intuitive, and extremely clunky.  They tried to use the KH control layout. KH you have up to 5 slots that autosub out for limit breaks, etc. FF7 Remake has 2 + plus character swapping. etc. So you have considerably more, and they are on a separate menu from your attacks(along whit your items and skills). Beware accidental character swaps.

6. Camera controls and layout-  Layout is mostly intuitive, Materia take a bit of work, but that's common for FF games.  nothing in the menu system is headachey to use once you figure it out.  Camera is pretty hands off, and does a decent job, its hard to lose yourself, nor do you have to keep adjusting the camera while you fight.

7. Aging analysis and replay value  Game should age like fine wine. It's diverse enough and engaging enough to remain fun, and its not a game that dates itself in anyway, or lacks interesting mechanics.  replay value on the other hand, while definitely there, Game is awfully grindy and long, and no real way to skip a lot of cut scemnes.

Over all rating of game is a must buy if you are grand fantasy single player gamer.  Probably on the skip shelf if you're a hardcore multiplayer gamer  ~Zeo
