As I see a lot of damage-control by apologists is beeing made in many different forums. For me this is a total rip-off. What FF7 made a good game weren´t the parts seen on their own, but the complete package. With this espisodic rip-off, excuse me, I mean business model, you end up with just slices of the "pie". That was one of the reason every single one of the other FF7 IP products, be it Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus and Advent Children ended up disappointing one more than the other. Another problem is that to make each episode feel like complete games, each one will drag and get alot of filler bloat. The pacing will be affected.
Luckily enough I´m not willing to be ripped-off and won´t buy into SQEX stupid excuses. It´s really a big disappointment and I´ll happily wait until it´s released as a compilation and ignore the episodes. But only if the quality holds up, which isn´t guaranteed when it comes to SQEX and FF for years now. If there won´t be one, who cares, there are enough games. It´s more importamt to me not to support such rip-off schemes.
