she looks fun, especially because i'm a long range fighter in RPGs. but yes a lot of people say that she looks basic and boring.
She actually has the most visually stunning moves from what I’ve seen haha. But not my type, I’m a sword and kick type character.

She don't sell flowers in this one? What did they make her do?

Jumping forward and bonking enemies on the head may have worked in the original, but it wouldn't have in this game and that's all the melee fighting she ever did. I'm glad she plays differently than the other characters and I wouldn't have wanted her using her staff like a damn lightsaber.
Doesn't matter to me. Having her fight in this way is akin to a character assassination. Anyway I've already decided on never using her in this game if she doesn't get a melee weapon at some point.

yeah, people dont understand she only attacked because of limitations of gameplay mechanics back then. Everyone had to have regular melee attack even Barrett had some.
There was no limitation, what are you talking about? She hit things with her staff because a staff is a weapon and is what mages have to attack with. Traditional mages have a staff that they also used for melee and not only for casting magic. The fact that she's already limited to this one playstyle is why they f***ed her up. The f*** is she going to do when multiple enemies gets up in her face? Run away like a wuss? She's not some kind of wimp. Thus she needs some kind of melee. This is the girl that thought the Turks were pursuing her because they wanted her in Soldier. See, character assassination.

Technical limitations...pffffft! People need to stop spouting this type of nonsense. Her current design in this game is short-sighted, there's no other reason for it.

If she thought the turks wanted her in soldier this isn’t a character assassination she was always just an idiot.

I hate it. I want her to be a melee character. There was a certain charm to her fighting in the original and she's a completely lame white mage character. I already can tell she's gonna be the one in the sidelines for most of the game. I'll even take Tifa who I hate over her because at least they didn't f*** up the way she plays. I'm hoping that devs come to their senses and give her a melee weapon like Barret.
They should have made Cloud primarily a mage and gave Barret a bayonet the size of the Buster Sword too.

I totally agree, this is definitely the most fitting style imo, melee combat wouldnt make sense considering she has no physical strenght and she also has no high level martial art using the staff..........what instead she has is a great talent for magic and that is exactly what her style in this remake focuses on.

Kind of like she did when Reno came to see her at the Church?

An idea that was literally mocked in-game when it was said.

Short sighted in what way? We also don't actually know if she possibly gets some form of a melee attack either. Also have you not watched the footage? She has an evasive parry to get out of the way of enemies so that she can fight at her comfortable range. Nothing about her fighting style looks "wuss" like, quite the opposite in fact. She fights rather elegant and nimble.
