Preview: It's the Millanial Fair in the kingdom of Guardia. Chrono, a typical teenager goes to the fair to have some fun and meets a girl who asks him to show her around town. After a while they stop by Chrono's good friend Lucca's booth, which is a teleportationcapsule. Chrono goes through it just fine, but the girl dissapears when she goes through it, this begins Crono's quest which starts out to save a princes, but in the end becomes a quest to save time itself.
Note:Difficulty has no outcome on the game's final grade.
Chrono Trigger probably has the best graphics any SNES Rpg's have [Only Lufia 2 and Super Mario RPG rival it]. the characters look great as well as the background and it has 3-D Mode 7 graphics for the spell graphics.
This game also has some of the best music for any game, the only game that is tied with it is Zelda III. I even like the sound effects and music on this better than the FF games.
The controls are really easy to use. They use the same set up as basically every other SNES Rpg of it's time. The controls in battle, though are a bit different than other games, in that it uses the ATB system to it's fullest.
Specials, Inginuity, and Replay=10.0
Okay, now a perfect 10.0 is really, really rare. The game is really creative with it's idea of time travel, unique battle system, and dual / triple techs. It's DEFINATELY worth playing multiple times since it has 11 different endings!
Challenge=7.4 Difficult Level
Actually this game is a VERY good beginer's RPG. It is pretty easy except for soem of the later bosses [mainly ones found on side- quests]. With out those few tough bosses I'd probably give thid game a 5.0 for the difficulty.
This is probably one of the highest scores I'll ever give a game. And that is becasue it is just such a freakin' good game. If you haven't ever played this game PLEASE play it. I guarantee you that you'll like it.

1. Chrono Cross

3. Super Mario RPG
4. Final Fantasy 6
