View Full Version : Chrono Trigger
Dec 09 2006, 11:27 PM
Now, I am not so much of a fan of Chrono Cross, as I am of Chrono Trigger, but I do enjoy it still and love it! However, Chrono Trigger is another one of my favorite games of all time and I truly do love it and it's a game that I can play over and over again.
Chrono Trigger's story begins with the Millennial Fair of 1000 A.D., a celebration of the millennium since the founding of the Kingdom of Guardia. The protagonist, Crono, is awakened by his mother and proceeds to Leene Square, where the fair is being held. After accidentally bumping into a girl named "Marle", they quickly become friends and visit the main attraction of the fair, a teleportation device constructed by Crono's inventor friend, Lucca. An eager volunteer, Marle disappears when the demonstration goes awry and reacts with her pendant, teleporting her through a mysterious portal. Determined to find his new friend, Crono retrieves the discarded pendant and Lucca activates the machine once more, sending Crono through the same portal. He reappears in a forest grove, and upon finding a nearby town learns that he has gone back in time four hundred years.

I have played Chrono Cross but unfortunately I didn't had the chance of playing Chrono Trigger. The main story of Chrono Cross is quite interesting if you are playing it for the first time without knowing anything about the previous Chrono Trigger. The plot about the dragon's main purpose, the Frozen Flame, the Masamune which will be later known as the Mastermune, Linx, Serge himself, and the whole mysterious drama arround Kid.
*Maybe I should stop here or else I might end up spoiling the whole game for those who haven't played it yet.*

That is the main problem of Chrono Cross though. It is a good game, if you haven't played Chrono Trigger. The best way possible to explain it is: Trigger shits all over Cross. Mitsuda's music in Chrono Cross is better then it was in Trigger though.

Yes, thankfully Chrono Cross does well as its own stand-alone game because up until the end you don't really know how it's connected and even though it is in a major way, it is still not something a lot of people realize.
Aforementioned, though, I did enjoy Chrono Cross. I got it when it first came out and listened to the soundtrack daily while I walked to school and I did have lots of fun. I loved Kid! I was so happy when I found out the connection to the original game because in the original game, my favorite character is Schala. Schala is also my second favorite female video game character, of all time. I love Schala and Chrono Trigger. But! Yes.
Chrono Trigger blows Chrono Cross away. It's just an amazing game, with awesome characters, storyline, character development, adorable awesome 2D graphics and also great music! If you really wanted to play it, you could get the ROM. Not sure if those are against the rules to talk about here, even though I didn't see them in the rules you still never know, so won't go on too much about that, but yes! You can get the SNES ROM of Chrono Trigger.

I've never played any of the Chrono games but I might try them sometime. Which one are you playing, the SNES or Playstation version?

PS1 version. It kinda sucks though because you have to wait like 5 seconds to open up the menu and wait for a battle to begin/end.

Those loading times are a real enthusiasm killer.
I haven't played the PS1 version of Chrono Trigger, but it sounds like it has the same problems as the PS1 conversions of FFV and FFVI. I could barely stand to play those because of all the annoying loading breaks. I've just bought FFV Advance and FFVI Advance for the GBA and they are much, much better. No loading times because they're cartridge games and they're just better suited to a portable system in general, really.
I've played a bit of Chrono Trigger on a SNES emulator and it is a great game, although I must admit I still haven't finished it (too many other new games to distract me). The storyline is quite interesting, the graphics are excellent for a SNES game and it has a very good soundtrack. And best of all - no random battles!
I would love to see a conversion to either GBA or DS as neither the SNES or PS1 versions were ever released in Europe.

Please use the search function in future, bumping old threads is alright. :p
