Hey! You`re alive!
If you are in the boat of "desperate for a remake" like I am, then the mods are a great alternative! I chose Tifas Bootleg myself, it has updated models, some graphics, updated menu, text bubbles, a couple of cheats (Yeah on Tifa everytime!) and they have fingers! (most of them) But there are some other good ones I have heard of too, where you can get Advent Children models, and so on. If you have the patience to install the mods, I do recommend it with your next replay.
