  • Excerpt: Let's go back into the past, to the days when 16-Bit consoles ruled the video gaming industry. The Super Nintendo and Genesis were both known for a thing each. Genesis or all Sega consoles for that matter have been known to be systems with the best sports games. While Super Nintendo (and just that system itself) was known for its RPGs such as Final Fantasy 1-6, Lufia 1-2 and Chrono Trigger.

  • Excerpt: Back in 1995 Super Nintendo was the Playstation of game consoles. The system had support from almost every big name publisher, including RPG king SquareSoft. With Square came many good things for Nintendo and obviously the biggest being the immensely popular Final Fantasy series. While the whole world was dramatized by FF's rich gameplay, refreshing story and great soundtrack, people weren't expecting anything new from SquareSoft, until one day a new RPG was revealed.

Chrono Cross

Playstation Illustrated
8 June 2004
  • Excerpt: Statically-rendered 3D backgrounds have never looked as gorgeous as they do in Chrono Cross . They've never looked so un-static, either. The game is awash with brilliant hues, dark undertones, and everything in between. I simply gaped at a few areas the first time I entered them, oblivious to what I actually meant to do. People heard me mumbling something that sounded like 'pre-tty col-ors' as I played. The character models are very nice as well.

  • Excerpt: When a game company makes a sequel, they always hope it does a few things: that the game pleases the fans, attracts new players, and, best of all, inspires players to buy the previous game.

  • Excerpt: In most ways, Chrono Cross is like its predecessor’s more mature, older sibling. Chrono Trigger was a light-hearted romp through time, tying all its loose knots together in a neat, happy bundle at the end and not worrying about the consequences. Chrono Cross deals with the unresolved ramifications of the actions taken in Chrono Trigger: the paradoxes created by altering the past, the seemingly trivial decisions made daily that can forever change the course of a life, the...

  • Excerpt: Before bringing out the big gun, Final Fantasy IX, this fall, Square has one remaining summer sizzler to fling at us. Witness Chono Cross, a cross-dimensional romp with a cast of thousands and the sequel of sorts to the 1995 SNES hit, Chrono Trigger.

Chrono Cross

Push Start
2 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Após o lançamento do primeiro jogo em 1995, já nos finais de vida da consola da Nintendo, a sua sequela pouco directa, Chrono Cross foi lançada em 1999 no Japão e no ano seguinte nos Estados Unidos, não tendo chegado às Playstations europeias. Esta obra-prima dos considerados “melhores tempos da Square” é uma mistura bastante completa e eficaz de uma história bastante bem desenvolvida, personagens igualmente desenvolvidas, gráficos de topo para a consola,  jogabilidade,...

  • Excerpt: Chrono Cross je nepřímé pokračování geniálního Chrono Trigger, které se řadí svým desítkovým hodnocením mezi absolutní špičky v oboru. Jak dopadlo pokračování? Rovnou to řeknu, velice dobře, vlastně dokonce naprosto skvěle a geniálně!

Chrono Cross

Outerspace
25 July 2004
  • Conclusion: Desde Final Fantasy VII que não aparecia algo tão bom para o Playstation. Mesmo com alguns poucos pontos negativos, Chrono Cross consegue ser um dos melhores RPGs da atualidade. Este é muito mais que uma obrigação para os fãs do gênero, é um dever para todos os jogadores. Beeba!
  • Pros: História foi muito bem elaborada, e vai te deixar louco;, Enorme quantidade de personagens jogáveis;, Gráficos nunca vistos no Playstation;, Animações belas;, Sons e músicas de primeira;, Jogabilidade também ficou excelente;
  • Cons: O sistema de batalhas poderia ter ficado mais estratégico;, A história demora um bocado para esquentar;, Pouquíssimos "CGs".
