Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?
