Expert Verified By

2024's Best-Rated Game With 93/100 Score!

Story Highlights
  • The Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth review embargo has been lifted.
  • With over 100 reviews, the game has scored 93/100 on Metacritic.
  • This makes it the best-rated release of 2024 so far.

Square Enix was already busy last year with the Final Fantasy series as it released Final Fantasy 16, which sold 3 million units within a week, becoming a notable success with positive reviews.

However, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth appears to be on track to eclipse this success. The game was already considered one of this year’s most anticipated titles, and its latest reviews suggest Square Enix will not disappoint.

On Metacritic, the game’s average score has landed at 93/100.

Why it matters: This game not only serves as Square Enix’s biggest 2024 launch but it is also positioned as Sony’s biggest PS5 exclusive for the first half of the year.

The game has accumulated several reviews already. A few of the scores are listed below.

  • GamingBolt – 10/10
  • IGN – 9/10
  • Easy Allies – 9/10
  • VGC – 4/5
  • Game Informer – 5/5

Every outlet appears to be pleased with how the game has turned out, with most reviews landing between a score of 9 and 10. 

Reviewers have praised Square Enix’s ability to expand the lore of Final Fantasy 7 in this title while staying faithful to the original. This makes it enjoyable for returning fans and newcomers.

One reviewer even went as far as to call it the best entry in the franchise since Final Fantasy X. The release is also considered a Game of The Year contender already, setting a high bar for the rest of 2024.

This is a fair assessment since Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is the best-rated game of 2024 on Metacritic so far.

Square Enix has expanded the open-world elements for this game, offering up to 100 hours of content.

The world is packed with characters to meet, quests to complete, and various exploration opportunities. These elements have resonated with the critics, making Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth a major success.

The game is also a return to form for JRPG elements. While the last entry from Square Enix delved into action-game territory, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is a classic JRPG through and through. Overall, these reviews have set it up for a massive success at launch next week.
