So I finally finished Chrono Trigger, a game I missed playing in my youth due to it being a rare game to get hold of where I am from. I am no fan of JRPGs however I did finished FF7 on my PS1 and I heard this game needs to be played. Well I finally did it and I must say I am very impressed.
I played this on Steam and I heard the game copped a few complaints due to the PC port. However what was the issue with the PC port? The game scaled well, offers clean visuals and those cutscenes look amazing. I did play the latest version of the game so I am guessing they fixed a few issues with its latest patch?
The game's cutscenes reminds me of DBZ so much that every time I thought Chrono was going to go super Saiyan haha. Yes I know the same artist was involved. The game also has some of the best gaming music iv heard and the character development in the game is very detailed. Each character has a story to tell and an interesting one to be part of too. It never felt boring or the same. I also much prefer the battle system in CT then the random encounters you find in 99% of other JRPG games.
Is it better than FF7? Hmm I wouldn't say it beats FF7 but good in its very own way in my opinion, I do find that Chrono Trigger has aged very well while FF7 did not but I did like the characters a lot in FF7 so both games hold a special place in my heart but I will have to say I will slightly edge anyone that loves JRPGs to play Chrono Trigger since its a game that has aged well over the course of time (Pun intended) and the music and cutscenes are well worth experiencing.

Is Chrono Cross worth a play through? It doesn't look as appealing, seems more like the Xenoblade 1 to Xenoblade 2 games which took a completely different approach from eachother, however I have not played it yet. Any thoughts?Last edited by Azzanation - on 21 March 2019
