I've never enjoyed turn-based combat, but Chrono Trigger got pretty close to making me enjoy it. Unfortunately, it did not succeed, and most of what you do in the game is combat. The visuals and music are great, though. The writing is fine, I suppose. I appreciate the little details in it, I just have the feeling that Woolsey wasn't given the ability to translate things as well as he could have in better circumstances, and it drags down the writing for me.

It's chrono trigger, there's not much that hasn't been said. It's great, we all love time travel, we love silly characters literally named "Frog". It's a classic

Masterpiece! The best JRPG ever made.

This is a masterpiece. I played this in like 2019 or something and it genuinely trounces all modern RPGs I've played. It's not even close.

Finally finished this on the 3DS. Toriyama designs are always fun to look at, and the story is still miles above even more recent games.
