Chrono Trigger (Super Nintendo Entertainment System, 1995) - Japanese Version
About this product
|In Chrono Trigger, a katana-wielding protagonist named Crono embarks on a time-traveling quest to alter the past and save the world from an alien threat known as Lavos. Team up with a cast of unusual heroes, including a frog and robot, while exploring both prehistoric and futuristic locales from an overhead perspective. As you navigate forests, canyons, dungeons, castles, and other locales, you'll encounter an assortment of enemies. Combat takes place on the same screen, using a system that combines menu-driven commands with time-sensitive actions for each party member. Each character can engage in melee combat, cast elemental-based magic, use items, or perform special abilities and combos derived from "techs." A total of 13 endings are possible in Chrono Trigger, based on your actions and decisions throughout the game's seven eras. Up to three games can be saved to the 32-megabit, battery-backed cartridge.|

A jewel from better gaming days...
I've been gaming all my life, and I doubt there'll ever be a game quite like Chrono Trigger. Sure, it's from an old gaming system, but the characters are great, the story is compelling, and the music, despite 16-bit limitations, is nothing short of spectacular.
The story goes trough numerous periods of time, as the characters try to stop the apocalypse at the hands of an alien monster. The throught of time travel may seem cheezy, but you see your efforts take effect in future times. Giving food to a woman will cause her greedy ancestor (400 years later) to become generous and giving. A character can go back, and prevent her mother from being crippled in an accident, and with the player's help, and desert can be changed into a vast forest. The game even sports 12 different endings, based on what point in time you defeat the main boss, which, thanks to the New Game+ feature unlocked after beating the game once, makes this game worth playing for weeks.
I'm sure gamers more devoted to modern games won't care too much about an old game like this, but if you're a fan of retro games, or love RPG's, you owe it to yourself to check out Chrono Trigger. It might be a bit expensive, but take my word for it, it is well worth every cent.Read full review

Chrono Trigger is AWESOME
One of the absolute best on the snes. I played this game as a kid and now as an adult I'm enjoying this great story once again. Would recommend this title to anyone who owns a snes and loves great stories.

Crono Trigger Sux
This game sux, it is too over rated, sure, some may think that they are getting the best game ever, and it is composed among the best of the time, but it is too over priced here in ebay. Look for it in a flea market. It is waayyyy cheaper.

Buy it, no excuses
Since it's useless to review just the box, I'll review the game itself instead.
Buy this game. There is absolutely no justification to not buy this game. It's one of those games worth buying the whole console for.
