Description

  • PSX
  • Chrono Cross, the sequel to the Super Nintendo classic Chrono Trigger, turns out to be well worth the wait. Taking off
    20 years after the first game, Chrono Cross follows a boy named Serge across parallel worlds--both the world in which
    he lives and one in which he drowned 10 years earlier. Chrono Cross will wow players with beautiful prerendered
    graphics and a unique battle system. Elements replace magic and items in battle, and using the same element three
    times in a row will ultimately increase your power. In addition to using elements, the accuracy of physical attacks is
    determined by probability, with easier-to-land weak attacks setting up fierce blows.

    The plot, while a bit slow to develop, is full of interesting characters. Players will need to travel between the two
    worlds to advance the plot. While many of these areas will initially appear to look similar, you'll find them to be
    quite different upon closer examination of the details. For instance, a plant that is extinct in one world thrives in
    the other.

    My only qualm with Chrono Cross is that, despite the complexities of the battle system, veterans will have an easy
    time with early battles. Still, there's much to like about this SquareSoft epic. --Robb Guido

    Pros:

    * Lavish, vibrantly colored graphics
    * Unique battle system involving elements and casting away role-playing clichés like experience and magic points

    Cons: * Easy battles due to powerful offensive and cure elements
    * For hours, players will be saying, "Get to the time travel stuff"
