Chrono Trigger Review
Chrono Trigger is a mind blowing addition to the Super Nintendo. I believe a lot of people were really pleased with this title and it is not very hard at all to see why. This game has amazing story elements and great game play. Never once did I find the controls awkward or weird and the game plays pretty straight forward for the most part so getting lost just wasn't an option. Needless to say that Chrono Trigger captured my heart and is still a very much enjoyed game today.
Overall I rated this game a solid 10, I personally loved it and find it a cult classic of video games. Chrono Trigger took me on an amazing adventure, and still takes me there time and time again. I never get tired of playing. I love the style and the feel of the game and the story, it is nice and solid.
The graphics of this game look pretty good, especially for the era that it came out. I gave the graphics an 8, I loved them they were not to distorted that you couldn't tell what it was. You can definitely tell when you can interact with something and character designs look really nice. When it comes to the sound I had to rate it a 10, I loved every bit of music that this game produced each one fitting the mood of the level just perfectly. Each location sounding just as amazing as the first.
Addictiveness I rated 10, I am completely hooked and love playing this game. I also think a lot of new age gamers, if given the chance, will love this game too. And I really think that the story is what captivates most people, so I rated it a 10 as well. Chrono lives with his mom and wakes up one morning to go to the Millennium Fair and see his friend Lucca, but then he runs into a girl who calls herself Marle. As you and Marle find your friend, you watch as she displays her new invention a teleporter which Marle is so happy and eager to test out. However, her pendant reacts to the machine and now Chrono must go to the past and save her, turning a simple rescue mission into saving the whole world from a destructive and desolate future. That is the story shortened up, I didn't want to give any spoilers.
As for the depth I rated the game an 8. Sometimes you may find little secrets, like tonics and items. There are also a few extra characters who will aid you on your quest like Robo or Frog. Difficulty I rated a 7, the game wasn't hard really but sometimes can be a challenge when it comes to some bosses, etc. But overall the game is not impossible, not even slightly.
Chrono Trigger is needless to say an amazing game, and definitely deserves much praise. I hope that I have inspired those who have not tried this game to pick it up. It is an excellent adventure, and a wonderful game. Have fun, until next review.

A young man is transported into the past, altering the course of history and the outcome of the future.

A paradox has been created. If he does not restore the order of time, nothing will ever be the same. He is the one who will become a hero. He is Crono.
Chrono Trigger Description: What begins as a carefree day at the Millennial Fair for a young man named Crono turns into his ultimate adventure. When Crono meets a young girl named Marle, little does he realize that this young girl, his best friend Lucca's invention, and a mysterious pendant will thrust him into the ultimate trip through time and space, encountering new friends, defeating the forces of evil, and encountering the one who would destroy the flow of time.rnrnChrono Trigger is a role-playing game, with the usual game mechanics fare for such: the player takes control of a variably large party, developing the combat skills of its members and managing their equipment. As the characters grow in power, not only their ability scores increase, but they also learn new "Techs" - special powerful attacks and maneuvers which cost them "Magic Points" to use in battle. rnrnThe game utilizes the ATB (active time battle) combat system from Final Fantasy games - sort of a mix of turn-based and real-time combat - adding to it combo attacks. Apart from normal Techs, it is possible to use Double and Triple Techniques - super-powerful attacks which involve two or three characters using their abilities at once. There are no random battles in the game, as all the enemies are visible on screen, and it's even possible to just pass by them entirely. rnrnThe game allows you to face your ultimate adversary at different points of time, which leads to several different endings. There is also a New Game+ option, which allows you to carry over your powerful characters to a new game, and adds even more endings to the already existing ones.
