I've never played Chrono Trigger. I remember the hype surrounding the game in magazines when it came out and the fan following afterwards, but that's it. With that said, you do a good job making it sound like an entertaining rpg that's fast paced and has variety. I had no clue there was a new game +, so that actually makes it sound like a fun game to replay. Enjoyed reading the review!

Ah, informed opinions on Chrono Trigger. Since it was never released here, CT has always mocked me with its sterling reputation. Sigh...

It wasn't released on the SNES in Australia... and the PS1 version didn't make it here. But we got the DS version, and oddly, it's on the Wii Virtual Console. Awesome game. One of the only times I played a rom all the way through.

I imported the PSX version, which mocked me with its awful load times. Is this review good enough to make me brave them? It's a fantastic review, but, no.

16 bit games shouldn't have ludecrious load times!


For us. For them. For you.

That's like how my first exposure to Final Fantasy V was through the PSX port (that came with VI, as well). Nothing says "enjoying a classic RPG" like running through it as fast as possible because any minute now the damn thing is going to crash. But waiting for the game to load back up after hitting reset after a crash gave me plenty of time to think about how humorous it was to port two Super Famicom games to another station EXACTLY like they were on their original system, with the exception of inserting a handful of cinema videos. And I guess at least VI had a viewable bestiary, as well. And a lot more crashes and glitches.

Anyway, good review. Interesting. You reviewed Super Mario Brothers right before I reviewed SMW 2: Yoshi's Island. Now you reviewed Chrono Trigger while I'm replaying Chrono Cross to review that. If your next review is a Tales of... game, I'll be really freaked out.

Thanks, everyone.

Gary:
I don't blame you for not touching the PSX version. I played maybe ten minutes of it and had FF6 PSX flashbacks and quit for good. At least it came with a functional copy of FF4.

Rob:
Never had problems with FF5 crashing on PSX, and I played through it recently on a PS2.

...

Does that break any laws of nature? I played an SNES game ported to PSX on a PS2. Should I be worried about interdimensional rifts in my house or anything?

My main problem with FF6 via PSX was the constant loading. Like executing a blitz with Sabin, he'd have to stop sometimes two or three times in the middle of the blitz to load the graphical effects and such. That and it seemed like it took a year for battles to load.

Anyway, good review. Interesting. You reviewed Super Mario Brothers right before I reviewed SMW 2: Yoshi's Island. Now you reviewed Chrono Trigger while I'm replaying Chrono Cross to review that. If your next review is a Tales of... game, I'll be really freaked out.

I thought that, too. I kept saying to myself, "Everyone's going to think we're all Nintendo fanboys on this site." As for your eeriness... Well, I am replaying Tales of Phantasia on GBA to review it, soo....

Yeah. I think it might have just been my copy. FF VI crashed occasionally, too. And the loading could get to be tedious. I thought my PSX was going to explode during the one part where a couple characters are falling down a waterfall fighting fish monsters.

So, we've both done recent Super Mario reviews. You've done a Chrono game review and I'll be doing one in a week or two probably. And I'll have a Tales of Vesperia one this week while you're playing Phantasia. Yeah. That's creepy. I'll have to find unpredictable, wacky games to play for a bit!
