The Three Difficulty Settings

Classic Mode

FF7 Remake Classic Mode
The Classic Mode caters to the old school fans that have enjoyed the original game. While in Classic mode, Cloud automatically attacks and defends. This allows the player to focus on inputting commands rather than get pressured by the new combat system.

The Classic Mode can also be used if the player simply wishes to enjoy the story and / or boss battles as cloud can easily breeze through normal enemies in Auto Mode. The difficulty of the game while in Classic Mode is also the same in Easy Mode.

Easy Mode

FF7 Remake Easy Difficulty
For newer fans but only wishes to enjoy the story. Easy mode severely weakens the enemies allowing the player to pretty much, breeze through enemies in the game. Recommended for first timers and players that are having difficulty with Action games.

Normal Mode

FF7 Remake
The most recommended mode for everyone. Normal Mode forces the player to learn the fundamentals of the game such as issuing commands to allies, changing party members, utilizing every character's specialties, and even running away.
