Hey what's up? The game Chrono Trigger is a wildly popular game. "The
last great SNES RPG game..." Nintendo Power says. The game ranked #19
on the 100 best games. That includes N64 games too! It seems to be
one of the best games ever made on the SNES. The tale of Chrono and his
adventures is great. Plus multiple endings depending on when you fight
Lavos. You can't help but like it! The game is great pure and simple.
Graphics 8.4 out of 10
Hey it isn't exactly your best graphical game. But the graphics are good
considering the fact that Super Mario RPG came out later and still didn't
look that good. I mean come on, They all look a little round in the game
compared to Chrono Trigger. The graphics are very good for SNES. I would
venture to say that it ranks among the highest of all.
Music and Sound 10 out of 10
You couldn't ask for better music and sound. From the Chrono theme to
the final battle with Lavos. The music takes all other games on head
first. They are some of the best pieces of music I've ever heard. The
sound effects are tremendously good. From the sound of the Luminaire
to the sound of Lavos, they don't get much better than this. Compared
to Zelda: A Link to the Past these sounds are tops. One tends to get
board with the same sound over and over and over again, but in Chrono
Trigger, you have a different sound for each place on the map. As well
as a theme for each character. Yes music is repeated but hey, you have
to do that. Just don't make it constant.
Game Challenge 10 out of 10
VERY VERY good game challenge. You can't help it. You may have beaten
Lavos but have you seen everything? From the wooden sword to the
rainbow it takes the cake. You have to earn the right to beat Lavos.
Also have you gotten all of your characters to level 99? Or found e
very rock for the triple tech? I highly doubt it, although it is possible.
Would you rather have a game like Super Mario RPG that is too easy
or Chrono Trigger which is right there in the middle. Not to hard, not
to easy, but just right. Loads of fun! Its a great game challenge for all ages.
Game Play-Fun 9.5 out of 10
It may not be the most fun game in the world but it is a lot of fun to play.
See it all from the Town Square to The Day of Lavos. You gotta love it
its very fun to play and also very challenging. You choose the destiny
of the planet, life or death? (Reffer to game challenge) The game is so
good it would top almost any game. You gotta play it. Once you do you'll
be hooked on it for a long, long time.
You may not be to happy about the Golem Twins but just go level up.
You don't get to frustrated on this game because you are in direct control.
Sure you have to follow some steps until you reach the spot where you
loose Chrono but from there on out you don't get to frustrated. Especially
if you use the New game, that gives you the spells, items, armor, money,
and everything else. Now that's what I call loosing the frustrations.
Replayability 9.9 out of 10
You can always find something new in this game every time you replay it.
You can get another ending like one where Frog goes in alone to fight
Magus or when Marle and Lucca do a check up on the type of guy they
like (of course Marle's is Chrono). You will have fun no matter how many
times you play it.
Game Value 100 out of 10
It is worth the price no matter what it is. From playing it, I have learned
to love the game. You can fight Lavos at your first meeting with the Old
Man or after Blowing the Black Omean to microbits. You will never find a
game that is worth its price more than this one. It is the best! I'm not
telling you because magazines say so, but because I know so! I've play
the game, I've beat it, and I still haven't gotten all the rocks for the triple
techs. Hey it makes you just keep coming back to it. It's great and a great
game all together.
Overall 100 out of 100
I conclude that this is the best RPG ever to hit SNES. You can't do any better
than it. Its a classic game and there is no reason not to like it unless you hate
RPGs. If you are an RPG lover, play this game. If you haven't, YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOUR MISSING!!
