Reviewed by Janus Okay, when I first saw the cover for the game, it didn't appeal to me at all. The characters may look dorky in the Anime art, but in reality they're anything but that. This is one of the greatest RPGs ever, and it is a must-have.

Graphics 9.4 out of 10

The graphics are not eye-popping like Donkey Kong Country 2 or 3, but it has the best non computer generated graphics I've ever seen on the Super NES. The graphics are a lot like Secret of Mana's, but the graphics are a big step up in quality. It has higher resolution than Secret of Mana (or so it appears to be), and the backgrounds look even better than Final Fantasy 3's! The characters and enemies look fantastic, but not quite as good as Final Fantasy 3's characters and monsters. A lot of the spells, look incredible for the Super NES, especially the more powerful ones.

Music and Sound 9.9 out of 10

WOW! The music was done VERY well in this game. The only Super NES games that I think have higher quality music are the Donkey Kong Country series. But still, it was composed better than the Donkey Kong Country games! The music perfectly fits what is going on, and the music gives you a lot of feelings for the characters. You will LOVE the songs like Underwater Palace, the music in the Reptite's Castle, Schala, Frog's Theme, and lots of others! The only video game (and I mean ANY video game) that beats this in the music category in my opinion is Final Fantasy 3.

Game Challenge 9 out of 10

The first part of the game is easy, but the Final Boss is by FAR the hardest boss in the game (unlike so many RPGs). Other bosses can be difficult as well, such as Giga Gaia, and the Golems (I think that's what they're called). The enemies take longer to kill than the recent Final Fantasies, and it takes MUCH more strategy, though usually it isn't difficult to figure out a way to really hurt the enemy. Also, the weapons and armor are harder to afford than in the Final Fantasy Series (except Final Fantasy 1), and you don't get money very fast. This is almost as hard as Final Fantasy 2, but it's harder than Final Fantasy 3.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

This is definitely the best point of the game. The story is excellent (especially in 10,000 B.C), and the character development is probably the 3rd best out of any RPG (After Xenogears and Final Fantasy 3). In this game, you get to travel through time to solve the big problems back in those times to save the future (just like Back to the Future, but with worse problems). You get 6 required characters, including 1 optional character. One really cool thing about this is the multiple endings. There are around 17 of them, I believe! Yeah, Star Ocean: The Second Story has over 80 endings, but this was released on a Super NES cartridge! The battle system is fairly unique since you can do combos (like Marle's Ice and Crono's sword put together for a very powerful attack), and are vital when it comes to boss battles, or else it may take a looong time(regular attacks aren't as effective in this game as in the Final Fantasies)

Frustration

You can get frustrated by some bosses because they can attack fast and do a lot damage. If your levels are in the 50s or lower, the Final Boss can be extremely difficult (especially the final form). I got to the Final Boss with an average level of 48, and I couldn't even beat the 2nd form (out of 3) of the final boss (the lasers of doom did 500-900 damage, while your max HP is 999)! A few times, you might not know where to go, if you don't listen to what's going on.

Replayability 9 out of 10

This game has very high replay value, because of the awesome story, great plot twists, and it around 17 different endings! It's a lot like those one type of "Goosebumps" books where you choose what to do, and it effects the ending (awesome!) and even better, if you get the best ending (you have to do every side quest), a New Game+ option will be there! In a new game+, you can start the game with the characters exact status from another file (like you start out with a level 99 Crono!.

Game Value 10 out of 10

This game is obviously worth the price. You just got to love this game.
