5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Console RPG ever made May 20, 2002
Chrono Trigger remains the greatest console RPG ever made. The version on this new CD compilation is identical in play to the original, but includes several animated cutscenes (done by Bird Studios, producers of Dragonball/DBZ and owned/operated by Akira Toriyama, who did the character designs for Chrono Trigger as well) which are themselves worth the price. (In point of fact, the price itself is interesting; the compilation of Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 4 costs less than either of them did separately when first released.)
Chrono Trigger centers around the adventures of Crono (yes, that's the correct spelling), a young man whose only apparent unusual feature is skill with a sword; otherwise, he lives a rather ordinary life, getting his allowance from his mom, taking care of his pet cat, and, as the story begins, looking forward to the Millennial Fair. At the Fair, he meets with a pretty blonde girl, Marle, who wears an interesting pendant, and who as a stranger to his town asks him if he'd be nice enough to show her around a bit.
Things get strange when they visit the exhibit area of one of Crono's friends, Lucca, who's an eccentric inventor. Her invention mysteriously reacts to the presence of Marle's pendant, and Marle vanishes, leaving the glowing pendant behind. When Crono decides to follow her wherever she's gone and bring her back, he's catapulted into a time-spanning adventure which will take him from the present to 65 million years in the past, and thousands of years in the future, and eventually to confront a world-destroying monster which may, at the same time, have been responsible for the creation of Crono's own civilization.

5.0 out of 5 stars I agree. June 15, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is already one of my favorites of all time and I only played it for the first time about two months ago. I did, however, rent it toward the end of my third grade year but when my dad and I went to buy it, they'd stopped selling most SNES games and replaced them with Playstation and N64 all over. But I downloaded this game on an Emulator and finally got to play it again as well as Final Fantasy III (VI), a game I unfortunately never got to play. But all the Final Fantasies are gonna be on the Gameboy Advance pretty soon and I expect this game to be as well, someday. Here's my review.

The graphics of this game are awesome. Even SNES games can have incredible graphics. In fact, the graphics here almost surpass many games even today. The storyline is awesome. I won't spoil it, even though some other reviewers already did. But the gameplay is the best of any RPG. Three of the Final Fantasy games should have had this style of gameplay instead of what they did have, which made them very frustrating. All the others are fine, though. I found this game somewhat easy, but I don't mean so much so that it's a breeze, but you'll still find yourself getting stuck on a couple of battles for a while, stop playing for a week, come back and and say 'ahh, I did it...'

Overall, I'd play this game over anything today. Ever since video games started looking more like movies, companies just seem to focus on making a game look great instead of having incredible storylines like the games of the SNES era almost all did. I've played Doom 3, Quake 4, Halo, and a ton of other movie games that I only enjoyed for a short amount of time before I just sort of decided to move on to something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible in every way... March 31, 2006
By jp
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Squaresoft has released three great games in its history: Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy VII, and Chrono Trigger. Of the three, this title falls somewhere in the middle. Overall it simply lacks the incredible story depth and character development of FFVI but it does have several strong points that make it easily one of the best video games of all time.

While the story is the most important part of a game in this genre, the graphics are the true standout here, perhaps the best of the SNES era. The battle effects and enemy animations are nothing short of incredible for the console. Square did an amazing job of developing lush environments that make the experience unforgettable. The music is also very strong, particularly later in the course of the game. The battle system is modified (with good results) quite a bit from the FF series--characters can combine abilities in battle and random enemy encounters are eliminated. Chrono Trigger has a great and imaginitve storyline, combined with the best graphics and sound the SNES has to offer (even if they are highly primitive by today's standards). The result is a true masterpiece.

This game lacks nothing and is another one of those magical SNES titles that all gamers today should go back and experience whether it be again or for the first time. Chrono Trigger is a masterpiece and it's extremely unlikely that a game of its caliber will ever be released again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pinnacle January 31, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What more could one possibly add? Chrono Trigger rocks in any epoch.

First, you've got a somewhat easy plot--time travelers attempting to avert apocalypse--but then thrown in is the fresh and startling idea of an omnipotent stellar parasite. It's amazing what imagination gets packed into these 16 bits. The end of time. Zeal. Mystics and Magus. Twists and turns shake out as personalities start reappearing in different guises, chunks of backstory from each character. The battle system is heavenly, typical RPG ATB plus a new added geometric strategy. Everything's streamlined, from the tecs to armor shopping. Graphics are beautiful and somehow simultaneously fun, sound effects spice it up just right.

The soundtrack is a model of the video game score, and Mitsuda's tunes are rightly among the mainstays of the genre. The quartal fanfare of the main theme, the gentle town melodies, the truly haunting overworld tune, the ghastly Magus dirge, the trial background, Robo's electropop track, and Frog's tripletty song, all simply marvelous.

The game remains as fun as it was when debuting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The music...
The soundtrack is just stunning. It wouldn't be half the game it is without it. A SNES classic from Square that obviously inspired elements of their later FF7.
