Playstation Illustrated

Game Ratio
2 November 2003
  • Excerpt: Chrono Cross is the opposite of Final Fantasy: no random battles, tons of characters, very little story development surrounding the characters, and non-linear gameplay. It’s like a game that specifically focuses on elements of Final Fantasy that some fans wanted a break from.
