The main cast of Final Fantasy VII. Unfortunately, none of the cooler characters make an appearance until later in the game, and it’s hardly more than a cameo at that point.

The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII continues with perhaps the least loved installment, Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII. Breaking from the standard RPG formula of Final Fantasy VII, Dirge of Cerberus is actually a third person shooter starring the mysterious Vincent Valentine, an optional character from the original game, and his mission to stop Deepground, an organization hell bent on creating as much chaos as possible to destroy the planet. It’s actually a pretty solid shooter at that, but it isn’t particularly awesome, unless you love melodrama. Dirge of Cerberus is one of the darkest entries in the Final Fantasy series. Literally the darkest, with a dark story, overtones, and a dark picture on the TV screen.
