I'm excited because I never got to finish the game. There was always some issue that happened when I got to the third disc. I ended up getting mad and buried those discs in a cd holder and ran across them a few years ago. I played through and again got an issue by the time i got to the third disc and stopped. Heard the remake and finally excited to see better graphics and finish the game! I hope they don't detour away from the story too much.
from all accounts i can find they are staying true to the original but alot more added content the 1st release is 2 disc's dont get out of midgar and its supposed to be just as long as the full game and we have atleast 2 more releases after to finish going to be bad ass epic!
