In this article I'm gonna review my favorite classic RPG game, Chrono Cross. Keep reading... Chrono Cross is the sequel of Chrono Trigger, Squaresoft's legendary 16-bit classic game. I played this game when I was still 14 years old. For me, this is the best RPG game ever made of all time. And I am sure if most gamers who have experience playing Chrono Cross are agree with my opinion.
The story of this game is pretty unique, just like squaresofts other RPG, Xenogears. Serge, a cute looking boy finds himself trapped in another world. In his quest to return home, he meets with kid, a rowdy adventurer. Along his journey, Serge will reveal the answer about his true identity and his ultimate destiny.
The battle system offered by Chrono Cross is very unique and innovative. There are several elements in the battle system that makes this game unique such as fields effects, stamina points, innate attributes and element grid. The better you master the battle strategy, the easier you beat the enemies and bosses.
Chrono Cross Unique Features
*Different from most RPG games, you can see the enemies very clearly on the screen. This feature is first time introduced in Chrono Trigger.
*You can escape from any battles, even from bosses!
*40 playable Characters In this game there are more than 30 playable characters with their unique stories and abilities.
*Forget about ugly looking enemies and bosses in other games. In this games, they look cool and amazing.
This game's pre rendered 3D backgrounds is probably the best in PlayStation console, even if it is compared to Final Fantasy series. Chrono Cross also offers great variety of detailed, colorful and pleasing environments.
Yasunori Mitsuda is the maestro behind the sound making of this game. The sound is the best aspect of Chrono Cross. The whole soundtracks are new and unique while some of them are rearrangements of Chrono Trigger soundtracks. Never call your self a real RPG gamer if you never play this RPG game.
