Set a few years after Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005), this PS2 game tells the tale of Vincent Valentine, who is targeted by Deepground, a mysterious organization that plans to awaken a creature known as Omega, with the ability to destroy the Planet.
Threatened by an unknown enemy, Earth's governments unite to form an elite paramilitary organization, known as XCOM. As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion.

In 1974, Snake (a.k.a. Big Boss) is no longer part of the US special forces and has his own merc team. While on a mission in South America, they encounter a strange hostile merc unit with far superior equipment than their latest tech.

One year has passed since the events in Final Fantasy VII : Advent Children. Buried alive following the Meteor disaster, a mysterious group known as the Deep Ground Soldiers emerge and begin raiding the city of Midgar. The enigmatic Vincent Valentine is somehow connected to these attacks, and may be as well the only one who can save this shattered world. Other characters from Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VII : Advent Children join Vincent on his journey to save the one mighty city of Midgar and as the story unfolds, you will bear witness to shocking trusts never revealed before in Final Fantasy VII...Written by
After the credits, we go down to the cave where Weiss is lying dead. He is approached by an unidentified figure who picks him up, and tells him that their work is not done yet, addressing him as brother. A wing then appears out of the figure's back, and he flies away, carrying Weiss with him. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (2007) reveals this character to be Genesis, a precursor of Sephiroth.

I absolutely and sincerely hope this is not the shape of things to come. I saw this played from beginning to end - twice - and dared not pick it up for myself. When I did, I can assure you I put it down again, sharply. Absolutely the worst kind of spin-off is one that does not draw on the original material to any level other than a superficial one, and this is about as superficial as they come. Set in Midgar and thereabouts - fine. Includes characters in a cameo form - okay. ... what? Is that it? Format is dreadful, voice-acting atrociously bad; I mean, does anyone actually finish a bloody sentence!!? Cringe-worthy from start to finish, with some pretty, mo-cap CGI FMV sequences thrown around.
Diabolical, SquareEnix. Fo'shame!
