Video Game Review — Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger

(played on the Playstation Final Fantasy Chronicles video game)

 

Synopsis In 10 Words Or Less — Time traveling heroes take part in convoluted quests.

 

The Good — This game kept me busy with its quests and plots. The characters had character and while I didn’t care for some (Marle, Magus), those I did care for (Frog, Robo) warmed my heart when they were affected by the story.

Despite all the tedious main and sidequests, the story kept things entertaining. The graphics, though dated, were lively and cartoonish. The music was forgettable save for a few tunes. While this might be a bad thing, it’s not because the music gelled with the visuals to make for a seamless thrill.

Once one beats the game, they can start over with all the items and skills they picked up in their previous game. This makes the hunt for the alternate endings easier and adds to the replayability of the game.

 

The Bad — There’s a lot of back-and-forth in this game; not as much as the horrendous Final Fantasy II, but sometimes I felt that there was some filler that wasn’t needed.

 

The Ugly — While more helpful that recent RPG’s I’ve played, this game still requires a walkthrough to accomplish certain tasks, especially the sidequests. I have fun following walkthroughs, but for once I want a straight-forward game without any convolutions.

*** out of ****
