Thought of by some retro game fans as the best game ever - and this was never officially released outside of Japan and the US.....
I was introduced to the SNES late on, as I was always a Megadrive fan, but through reseacrhing some US retro game sites and podcasts I was convinced to invest in a SNES on ebay, and pick up some classic games. I tried a number of RPG's, inlcuding Zelda and the Final Fantasy series, before seeking out Chrono Trigger, due to the sheer size and volume of the fan base, and the insistence that this was even better.
I can't do this game justice in a small review, and the web is full of them, but here is a brief sysnopsis.
The main character, Crono, stumbles across a machine that takes him back in time, and discovers an evil force, LAVOS, that will eventually destroy the earth. With his friends Marle, Lucca and Frog, he must use the time machine to travel back and forth and defeat LAVOS.
Square, the creators of the Final Fantasy series, took the RPG recipe and added in a number of unique features, combining storytelling, emotion, graphics, a great fighting system and multiple endings to deliver a true slice of gaming greatness.
I actually feel unqualified to comment further on this game, so I'm not going to. Just go out, check the reviews on the internet, and find a way to play this great game. If you are an RPG fan your gaming experience in not complete without Chrono Trigger.
OR wait until the end of 2008 when the game is being released on the DS, and should come to the UK.
