Final Fantasy 7 Remake guides

Get better faster with our FF7 guides

Final Fantasy 7 Remake brings a new version of an old game to PlayStation 4, and Polygon’s guides will help you get better faster.

You can get started with guides to help you understand the game’s concepts, like the differences between Classic and Normal Modes, as well as the interrelated concepts of AP, SP, upgrading weapons, and leveling up. Don’t get too deep without reading our quick guide on combat, with five easy tips to make fights faster and more efficient.

We’ve devoted an entire section to Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Materia, too. In those guides, we’ll explain what Materia is, direct you to the locations of hidden Materia throughout the game, and even break out a few special instances, like the rare but powerful Summon Materia.

Finally, we’ve got a bunch of walkthroughs for the sections of the game that we found the most confusing. Most of Final Fantasy 7 Remake is, frankly, straightforward enough to make detailed walkthroughs unnecessary. But there are some confusing parts, and we’ve got you covered so that you can play with less confusion than we did.
