5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Sequel, September 2, 2000

This review is from: Chrono Cross - PlayStation (Video Game)
Chrono Cross, like its preddecessor Chrono Trigger, is a very original RPG that excels in almost every aspect; it's not nearly as cinema-intensive as Final Fantasy VIII, but in my oppinion, it's definately a better game. The game has overall better graphics then FFVIII; the soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard; the story, while somewhat convoluted, is very well done (needless to say, it has some great plot twists); and, finally, the game has an incredible amount of replay (you can play through it three or four times and still not discover everything). Oh yeah, the translation is excellent too. This is one of those rare games where I can't really think of anything derogatory to say about it; everything is pretty much perfect. One word of caution though: while the game is great, if you're a more mainstream gamer looking for a more traditional type of RPG, you may not like this, as it eschews not only the usual styles of battle and experience, but also the usual style of storyline deliverance. But all in all, if this doesn't bother you, you should really enjoy this game.
PROS:
Excellent, original battle system
No random battles!
Challenging, but balanced
The best graphics on PS
Great soundtrack
44 [cool] characters!
9 endings
The most non-linear RPG I've ever played
Incredible replay value
Great story
[great] translation
Tons of sub quests
You can run instantly from any fight (bosses included)
CONS:
The hero's name kinda sucks (but you can change it, so who cares?)
The last boss music is lame (you'll understand once you get to it)

Yeah, I was expecting some badass final boss music, but was greatly disappointed.

Still, it's amazing :]

The last boss had no music because the game was giving you an obvious hint that the spells element types made sounds; that once done in the correct Order give the game it's proper ending.

Y-R-G-Blue-Black-W-Chrono Cross

Use Yellow then Red, wait for the boss who should do yellow after ( Always does for me ).
Then build the entire order off that and use the Cross to win the fight.
