Product Information
A re-release in much the same vein as Final Fantasy Anthologies, Final Fantasy Chronicles bundles two of Square Soft's most beloved SNES RPG titles -- Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger -- in this PlayStation release. Final Fantasy IV, known in the US as Final Fantasy II, follows the exploits of Cecil, a Black Knight and former leader of the Red Wings who questions the orders of his king and is demoted because of this. From here, he embarks on a journey that will span worlds and decide the fate of the entire kingdom.

Battles are turn-based, but introduced to the series is the Active Time Battle (ATB) concept, which forces players to be quick with their decision-making because, despite the turn-based nature of the title, enemies can attack at brief intervals. The player's party can consist of as many as five people at one time and throughout the adventure, characters will leave and join up with the party. The characters themselves are divided into classes and possess specific attributes and skills. Kain, for example, is able to use a jump ability in battle while Rosa wields white magic. Known as the "Easytype," the original US release excluded particular items, abilities, and spells, all of which have been restored for this release, dubbed "Hardtype." As part of the update, new FMV cutscenes are interjected throughout the game.

Released late in the SNES system's lifecycle, Chrono Trigger documents the adventure of a young boy named Crono and his misadventures through time. During the Millennial Fair, Crono meets and quickly befriends a woman named Marle. While visiting Crono's inventor friend Lucca however, Marle is inadvertently sent into the past and Crono and Lucca must set off after her. Dubbed the "Tech System," the game allows characters to combine elemental attacks in order to produce Double and even Triple Techs; powerful offensive and defensive techniques. New Tech skills can be learned as the character increases in level.

Unlike Final Fantasy IV, battles in Chrono Trigger are not initiated at random, allowing players to avoid enemies (who are in plain sight) as they see fit. New animated cutscenes have been included as part of the update, as well as an Extras Mode that houses any additional extras unlocked by attaining one of the game's twelve different endings. A Theater, Music Box, Art Gallery, and Bestiary are just some of the options available, allowing players to view unlocked movie and ending sequences, listen to music from the game, view stills of the main characters, and read up on monsters, bosses, and techniques.

    Not as good

    Here we have Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger ported to Playstation. I played both to no end as a kid and still have Chrono Trigger. I'm sure not many will agree with me, but I think the originals were better. I'll make this short. There's no sense in going into great detail since for the most part these games are essentially the same games.

    *PROS*
    FFIV
    --it looks like they re-translated the game and left all of the items in from the original Japanese hard-type (there were two diff. versions in Japan) thus allowing the game to be more mature and more of a challenge than the original
    --they didn't leave out the two-player mode like they did in the original US version

    both
    -slightly smoother graphics
    -you get to play classic games on a newer system (barely a pro)
    -they *tried* to improve the games by adding new PS quality cutscenes
    -each have a few misc. extra features

    *CONS*
    FFIV
    --the sound effects were poorly sampled, they used the same sound effects (which is cool), but they sound all "boxed-in" like they are playing over a phone or were recorded by sticking a bad mic in front of the TV
    --the cutscenes seem ridiculous, out of place and unnecessary in context to the rest of the games SNES graphics

    Chrono Trigger
    --the intro was replaced, the original was fine except for a mis-spelling ("directer")
    --there is a 3-5 second pause (load time?) between the beginning and end of each battle, switching to and from the options menu, going from a dungeon/house/etc. to the overworld map, and so on and so on... This slows the pace considerably over time, which makes playing this version unbearable to me
    --the music is mixed differently (instrument-wise). I recall one song in particular had string parts that could barely be heard on the PSX version, but was mixed perfectly on the original. this affects the mood a bit, which sucks.

    Well, that's what I think. This could have been awesome but it's mearly "meh." If you like these games track down the originals. These versions simply don't cut the mustard if you are like me and cherish the original SNES versions in all their 16-bit glory.

    two fantastic games in one!

    This gem is the re-issue of two old SNES games for the Playstation, Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger. I enjoyed these classic RPG's very much - now for more detailed reviews of the games: Final Fantasy IV was originally released as Final Fantasy II here in the USA. The story follows the adventures of Cecil, commander of the famed Red Wings squadron of airships and a Dark Knight in the service of the King of Baron. Those who have mostly played the later Final Fantasies, especially VII, VIII, and X, will find the character creation system in this game to be different. As the game progresses, you will be joined by several different characters who rotate in and out of your party, and each has his or her own unique abilities. So, there is not a lot of room for character customization. Final Fantasy IV also introduced the Active Time Battle (ATB) system to the series. Basically, in this game, each character has a time bar that fills up according to the character's Speed stat. When the bar fills up, the character is able to take an action. The enemies have ATB bars also, but you can't see them. So you will need to plan your strategies carefully. As to Chrono Trigger, this game is not part of the Final Fantasy series, though it is from the same company that produced those games. Chrono Trigger follows the story of Chrono, a young man who is good friends with Lucca, the local inventor. CT is different from most RPGs in that instead of traversing a large world to discover new places, this world is much smaller and the new discoveries come in the form of time travel. There are several different eras that you will visit in the course of playing this game, ranging from the mists of prehistory to the far future. As in FF IV, each character in the game has his or her own unique abilities, with certain characters being more "Tank" types and others leaning more towards magic use. However, in this game, you have a little more control over who is in your party at one time. Also, each character has certain "Tech" abilities. Different characters can create powerful Double or Triple Tech attacks when working as a team, thus allowing for many different attacking strategies, depending on the party's composition. Depending on your actions in the game, you will get one of a dozen or so different endings. The different endings enhance the replayability of this game quite a bit. The Chronicles version also contains several new anime cutscenes. Overall, this is a truly excellent game, with a lot of nice surprises and features. Highly, highly recommended.

    2 Memorable games in 1

    When Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger came out originally on the SNES it changed the worlds opinion about RPG's Final Fantasy IV brought us into a world that was at the hands of an Empire that ruled it, and how one Man named Cecil stood up to them and took them down. IV's gameplay is very fun at first the game seems really hard it it does remain quite hard through the rest of it you will have to do a fair share of grinding in order to beat it. fear not though it is fun offers many sidequests and a cast of characters. a few major problems with IV is the fact by the end of the game you only have 5 members in your party and the fact that Edward The bard is worthless. The next game is Chrono Trigger this game revolutionized RPG's forever. It showed us that we could mix elements of Sci-Fi and Fantasy to make one kick butt game. You start out as a young boy named Crono who one day at a fair while hangin with his freinds finds himself thrown through time on a journey to save the world. along the way you meet a frog that wields a sword who's name is Frog (imagine that) and a robot named Robo. The battle system has a familiar turn-based feel to it but also has a uniqueness to it. These two games made RPG's what they are today. go out and buy them with a Remake of IV for the DS and a soon to be Import of Chrono Trigger on the DS these are some titles that any gamer needs to pick up and play.

    must have for collection

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    For all of Square's explosive growth over the last few years, Final Fantasy Chronicles proves that the company hasn't forgotten its roots. Like 1999's Final Fantasy Anthology, which saw the release of Final Fantasies V and VI, Chronicles is a repackaging of two of Square's greatest triumphs from the golden 16-bit era--here, Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger make their return. But in the 21st century, when games are as often based on polygons as plot, can a couple of good old 2D epics make a new mark? The answer depends largely on your perspective.

    Informed gamers will know Final Fantasy IV was originally released in the United States in 1991 as a scaled back and poorly translated Final Fantasy II. In addition to realigning the title of the game with subsequent releases, Square has remade Final Fantasy IV into the game it should have been 10 years ago. To begin with, the game's text has been retranslated; gone is the simplistic and sometimes broken English of the Super NES version. The new translation also gives us vastly deeper insight into the characters and plot than we ever got before--Cecil's struggle with the nature of his dark knighthood is much more fully developed, for instance. This translation has thankfully been applied to the original Japanese edition of Final Fantasy IV instead of the dumbed-down "Easy Type" version that was originally released in the States. American gamers finally have a chance to see, in English, all the missing items, battle commands, and other removed features that they missed out on the first time. This is surely the version of FFIV that will endure for years to come.
