Flipped back to graphics mode. For whatever reason it doesn't seem as choppy to my eyes today.

I thought the framerate was stable at 30FPs. Or are you saying that 30FPs just feels bad in general.
Yeah it’s probably due to mr LG oled more than the game, the frame rate looks solid but I had the same problem I had with spider man, it genuinely looks like a slide show and ruins any benefit of resolution the game may have. I tried it to see if it made the hair look super clean but cloud still had artifactimg on the hair even when the image is moving….must be the drs? at graphics setting so performance mode it is for me…looks so much better.

inal Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is, all in all, an excellent enhancement of a great game, thanks to its technical improvements and a solid and meaty new chunk of content with Episode INTERmission.

Those who haven't played Remake yet (and have access to a PS5) should have no doubt that this is the best way to experience the game. Meanwhile, for returning fans, Episode INTERmission is the perfect excuse to jump back into Midgar and make life miserable for Shinra as a giant shuriken-wielding teenage ninja.

Question for those who have bought the PS5 physical version of FF7 Remake Integrade: any day one patch or updates to download? Just curious.

Intermission serves as a tantalizing tease of Yuffie's inevitable meeting with Final Fantasy 7's core cast, and an excellent reason to return to Midgar to experience her new exhilarating style of combat and entertaining side activities.

Does the intergrade "ps5" disc just have the same base game as ps4 7 remake?
I've never played any ff game and 7 remake for ps4 is just cheaper. Does it have the same graphical update as intergrade version of base game ?

You get a free upgrade to the PS5 edition if you have the PS4 edition, but it doesn't include the Yuffie DLC.

I see. So what I expected. Does the free upgrade is just a patch like for god of war or a full ps5 native version patch, so dualsense and stuff too ?

I believe it's a native PS5 app, so you'll end up downloading the base PS5 game. I believe there is some use of dualsense features, but I can't remember off the top of my head.

Nice. thanks a lot. I would go for intergrade but I have no idea if I will like the game and base ps4 version is much cheaper.

Despite the game looking gorgeous with all the upgrades I still see a lot of poor textures to even zero texture at all, a bit disappointing.
Guess they never upgraded the actual textures and it always like this.

I honestly have bigger issue with NPC models, its kind of why I prefer visual style of DQXI and upcoming Tales of Arise over FF7R, the none important NPC models in those games doesn't look as good as important characters but they don't look ugly. In FF7R, some of the quests NPCs can look down right hideous at times.

OK ordered disc version of 7 remake for ps4. I should be able to upgrade to "intergrade/ps5 version" for free but no dlc.
It was 40 usd new and intergrade for ps5 was 80... so not sure I want to pay 40 for dlc I might not like a game for.
Also ordered Returnal just in case I don't like final fantasy :D

Enjoy!

Yeah, it's easy to wait a bit instead of paying full price. I am yet to pay 70 bucks for a PS5 game LOL.

Is it me though or the game can be beaten in a shorter time than the PS4 version? I'm in chapter 13 with 18h playtime and I haven't skipped any dialogues, sidequests or cut scenes. The PS4 game took me 35h to finish.

Can it be that the shorter load times and higher fps make for an overall shorter experience?

could be and also your familiarity with its combat and game as whole, so the experience is going to be much faster than your first time.

Of course load times are way faster, but it's your 2nd time through the game. I'd expect you to get through it quicker because you know the game and where everything is.

60 fps is the way to go. Holy hell its like a new game. I can take the res drop. Still looks sharp to me. What a great job they did in this.

I guess that's a factor too, but my memory is pretty shit and for me a game beaten a year ago is mostly gone from my mind lol. Maybe it's muscle memory, maybe its that the higher fps makes combat easier.

Is the only thing 60 fps does is drop the resolution?

Yes, you're playing at 60 fps now instead of 30 fps, thats twice as fast! Everything is running at double speed which in turn cuts game time in half! Its amazing!

I just started playing the PS5 version yesterday and yeah the 60fps is amazing. I tried Quality mode for a bit but it just felt so sluggish. Performance mode still looks great at least.
I'm with you are, the quality (30 fps) mode feels very... frame-ish? Lol Sluggish describes better. Performance mode with its silky 60 fps is better, though I wished they could could have a better IQ with increased resolution or CB or something like that (but with this perfect 60 fps performance!).

It's just a feeling. If you FORCED and played like that for few "hours", you would get used to it again. On pc it's easier because you can cheat. Lock fps to 20, play for 5 minutes, lock to 30 ad it will seem smooth as butter. Matter of brain perspective :p

Literally the first boss to kill me. Like in the original game this signals the first difficulty spike

The way synergy Materia works now makes this boss a cake walk now :( I think they made it way to OP with the changes (no MP or AP cost anymore), as opposed to how it was completely useless before.

Such a great game. Just got to chapter 12 and I’m looking forward to trying the DLC once I’m done with the main story.

Some effects are altered. I particularly noticed the particle effects toned down in the 60fps mode.
Not saying you are wrong but I believe everything is the same outside of resolution. According to digital foundry anyway. I might be misremembering though.

I managed to beat him the first time and had unoptimal magic equipped, but was also forced to use a bunch of phoenix downs.

That's the one thing that's annoying about the game. The first time you go in a fight you have no idea what the magic works and what doesn't and you can't swap it.

How does that work, both party members need to have this equipped into a linked slot? Doesn’t explain very well.

Nope. Just a non-active party member with it linked to one of the elemental materials. You can actually even hook it up to mp/oh absorbs too. Anytime your primary character does an AP attack it will trigger the synergy users to launch the linked attack materia. It use to cost mp/ap everytime it was used, but not anymore.

Ok I started playing this. So weird! Never played a game like this since it's my first FF.
The writing and some voice acting is bad but in a good, fitting way. Glad to see some attractive female characters finally.
Not sure I understand the combat properly yet. Kinda struggled with tutorial spider boss.

Another thing, performance mode is kinda blurry. So I am playing in 30fps a bit

How long did it take to start getting loud? From the veey start?

I played it the day the upgrade was released (60 fps mode) and my PS5 didn't make more noise than playing any other game. Sounds weird.
