Hello everyone, I am THEPLAYGAMER3. Welcome to 30 Minutes of Game: Chrono Cross.

Fantastic game, I actually have two copies of it, the original and the greatest hits versions lol.

It only fell short in two ways. The battle system's mechanics could have been done so much better, and it of course couldn't live up to Chrono Trigger even though it's an amazing game in its own right.

I think a lot of the people that didn't like this game, were the ones that didn't get far enough and were saying it didn't have any relation to Trigger. Honestly, I thought the same thing until about half way through when you start hearing about Lavos.

The later half of the game story was just crazy and kinda a bit too much for it's own good.

It did get crazy, but the overall idea of what you were doing when you came to the last boss was pretty awesome. I mean, just the way the events from Chrono Trigger carried over and WHO it was that you had to (or didn't have to) kill.

I dunno, I just thought it was pretty epic when you take a good look at it. Especially if you get the best ending.

AWESOME game. They do not make games like these anymore. I still have it on my PS3 alongwith several other PSone classics. I love the PSone era. Going to play FFIX soon.

biddern11259d ago

Yes, it's still a great RPG. way better then what's Square have out now.

Snookies121259d ago

That is very true, I just wish they'd go back to their old games and figure out what made them so great in the first place...

Ugh still never had the chance to play this.
Still waiting for Chrono Cross and Trigger to be released on the EU store >_>
Looks really good.

The game's epic and the soundtrack is terrific. I beat it like 2 years ago and I'd want to play it again if I didn't have so many games on my backlog.

I playiing this game even now, in 2012. One of the greatest games with one of the greatest soundtracks ever. Man, I'm in love with Chrono Cross. I have no words to describe its brilliance.

Now there's a classic right there. I remembered playing this game multiple times back in the day. A worthy game to have in one's personal collection.
