Game Informer: "The debate about what is the best game ever rages on in our minds and across the Internet almost continuously. While there really is no right or wrong answer (although putting Waluigi in your game is a great way to keep it off that list), there are a few games that consistently make the top tens or even fives. Square's Chrono Trigger is one of those chosen few. The game helped spawn a whole new era of storytelling and gave many gamers their first real emotional attachments to digital characters. Now the RPG publisher is finally reviving the title in the form of Chrono Trigger DS. We dove back into the time jumping world of Crono and friends for when heck of a trip down memory lane."
