Preferably, plug in nice headphones, and set up shop in a quiet, dimly lit room. From Leene's Bell's soft ring to Frog's murky gurgles to Lavos' pell-mell, the sound, more than any of Chrono Trigger's complex time travel wizardry, transported me backwards over a decade to the first time I spent an entire night playing through a JRPG on my SNES. The opportunity to re-experience the brilliant work of famed composers Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda is reason enough for any fan to pick up the most recent Chrono Trigger update.
But for the non-fan or the gamer that missed Chrono the first time through, the DS iteration contains plenty of reasons to make the purchase. Originally released for the SNES in 1995, Chrono Trigger's aged splendidly. Part Bill and Ted, part Three Musketeers, the plot follows a young man, Crono, as he travels through time between 65,000,000 BC and 2300 AD to destroy the parasitic extraterrestrial, Lavos. Along the way he makes friends, slays enemies and saves the girl. Occasionally, his companions save him too."
