Can't beat the quality the classics provide.
I've known these two games were classics and have wanted to play them for a long time. When I found out they came together in a packaged set it was an automatic purchase.
Two great games. Two great classic RPGs. There's that old cliche saying, "they don't make 'em like they used to". That's totally true with these two games. Gameplay, music, story, characters, so on and so forth. If you want an everlasting experience they're right here.
If you're on the fence about buying this to play them for the first time (like I was) just go ahead and make the purchase. These two games are worth more every penny.Read full review...
must have for collection
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.Read full review...
Wonderful especially if your on a budget.
Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IV are classics for the rpg genre, there's just one problem. They are expensive as all hell. The cartridges alone will set you back hundreds of dollars and finding them with a box and manual is more like thousands. Assuming you don't have that kind of money lying around this is your best bet. They have all the same features and story but have a few new things added(mainly cut-scenes) to set them apart. However you still owe it to yourself to check them out, and this is a great way to do it. They have been re-re-released on handhelds like the Game Boy Advance/DS but I myself prefer playing console games on a console. I cannot recommend this enough check it out.Read full review...
I can't say enough about these 2 awesome games. I played the original games on the SNES and fell in love with them, which are 2 of my favorite of all time.
There were some changes made in this re-release though, namely the short movies, some text in game, and a few others. The added movies are a plus, although unnecessary they are a nice bonus. Apparently some of the text was rewritten, which I was overall disappointed with. The one issue I had was the long-ish load times, as I am a very impatient person, this flaw was hard to miss. It took some getting used to but once I became enthralled yet again with the great storyline, it faded into distant memory.
Although nothing will compare to the originals, this re-release is a must have if you still want to enjoy these classic games for a while longer. My vote, buy them, they are cheap and still very exciting and nostalgic if you played the originals.Read full review...
Excellent gaming experience
I already own chrono trigger for the snes, but thats only half the game. Character artwork was done by the man behind Dragon Ball Z, in the snes version this work only appears as the character image, the ps1 version contains the FMV sequences featuring the animated characters. Why did they create these FMVs when the snes could not play them? The Nintendo Playstation peripheral device is why, before nintendo canned the project this game, I believe was to be the flagship release for the new device. Bad move nintendo.Read full review...
Chrono Trigger: A Classic Reborn
You remember the glory days, right? When you walked up to your ol' gray and purple friend, grabbed a cartridge, blew in it for luck, and stuffed it in. You remember your Super Nintendo. And chances are, you remember one of THE BEST RPGS EVER: Chrono Trigger. The story line was great, the game play was amazing.. Hell, even the artwork was good. (Yeah, you watched Dragonball Z)
Thanks to this game, those glory days can be relived on your Playstation. This game is the same old game you loved back then - and the beautiful thing is that it never gets old. As far as I'm concerned, Final Fantasy IV is just a bonus on this one (I mean... It's not Final Fantasy III, as you knew it from your SNES days).
As far as I know, no one has invented the time machine YET. But for a couple of hours, your Playstation can act as one with this great game!Read full review...
very good games for the price
Play the classic well known Chrono Trigger on your Playstation console along with the ongoing series of Final Fantasy(in this case, IV(four)). Good old RPG elements from the old days and great story line as expected from Squaresoft.Read full review...
