Vincent

A mystical man, stern and upright while at the same time dark and mysterious. His past connection with Shinra Inc. is what made him join Cloud and the others. He may seem frail at first glance but inside his body lurks a fearsome power.

Our verdict:

Another pretty average character. Vincent Valentine is one of Final Fantasy VII’s optional characters (you have to do a bit of searching in order for him to join your party), but this doesn’t necessarily diminish the quality and intrigue of a character. For example, whether or not you were accompanied by Quina in Final Fantasy IX is optional, but Quina turned out to be a great character. Anyway, yes Vincent is a good addition to the game, but no the game would not be ruined with his omission.
