Hard Drive: Final Fantasy VII Remake’s Easy Mode Is Way Too Easy and Its Hard Mode Is Way Too Hard


Once upon a time there was a game called Final Fantasy VII Remake. I booted up the game and saw on the start menu there were three difficulty settings.

First, I selected Easy Mode. Boy was I in for a surprise. Who would have thought something called Easy Mode would be easy? Felt like a walk in the forest. A series known for its tactical combat reduced to a mere button masher. This mode is too easy!

Second, I attempted Hard Mode. This mode was overwhelmingly difficult — removing the ability to use items whatsoever in or out of combat. No potions. Nothing. The normal battle meta is thrown out the window for something mind-numbingly frustrating. I don’t understand how anyone could find fun with this. It’s just too hard!
Then finally, I tried the last difficulty setting — Normal Mode. Wow. What a mode.

I'm bit a confused, you can't use hard mode till you beat it in another mode, so either this guy cheated or is just making up things he saw but not experienced.
