Published 12/18/2021, 1:40 PM EST


Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a great title, without any doubt, with regard to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. However, the title recently received a much-anticipated PC port and it turns out that it’s going to be a terribly poor experience for the fans. At least, that’s what the people at Digital Foundry had to say about the newest release for its arrival on PC platform.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC port is a major disappointment!

The remake made its way last year amidst huge appreciation and praise from critics as well as the players. Moreover, it even won two trophies at The Game Awards 2020 event. One was for having Best Score and Music while the other was for Best Role-Playing game of last year.

Earlier this year, Square Enix unveiled Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s PS5 version, which was hailed a lot by Digital Foundry, the same platform which has now expressed a disappointment over its PC port. The PlayStation 5 release had brilliant textures, great lighting, and also amazing frame rates; it even offered 4K resolution at 30 fps.

On the other hand, the latest PC port of Final Fantasy 7 Remake is missing almost every important aspect such as the graphics settings, according to the tweet from Digital Foundry’s John.

Surely, this is unexpected, especially for a high-end PC launch such as the FF7R. For example, there’s no option to change framerates or any way of tweaking anti-aliasing. Options for controlling VSync and the motion blur are also missing, as of the time of writing.
