In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

One of the greatest RPG's ever to grace the SNES system, Chrono Trigger has now been released to the portable world.

Graphics-  The Nintendo DS has respectably alowed Chrono Trigger to maintain it's original 16 bit feel, letting you know that this is not a re-make, just a re-release.  Along with the first re-release Final Fantasy Chronicals, the DS version of Chrono Cross features some really cool animated cut scenes.

Storyline- Who could not love the heart warming storyline of Crono, Marle, Lucca, Frog, Ayla and Robo as they travel through different time lines in a quest to save the future.  The story keeps you captivated and interested as you grow closer to your characters.

Gameplay- Purely phenominal gameplay for it's time and ours.  Playing through the story will give you about 15 hours of gameplay and finishing the many fantastic side quests will give you about 20.  Don't let that get you down, after completing the game once, you have the option of entering New Game + mode where you can play through the game a second time with the stats you beat the game with.  Your main quest in New Game+ is to find all of the many hidden endings by deafeting the final enemy after certain events.  It's all just so much fun. 

Battle System-  I believe that Chrono Trigger holds the perfect battle system for turn based RPG  fans.  Instead of randomly encountring an enemy and entering into the battle scene, you start a battle right where you stand when an enemy appears.  This approach to the typical RPG battle system makes fighting more fun and a lot less over whelming.  While in battle, you can perform double team and triple team attacks depending on what characters you have in battle. 

Character development- Just like most RPG's, you develop your characters stats by gaining EXP.  You can also gain skill points to learn special abilities.

Voice overs-  N/A

A classic of all classics, Chrono Trigger will forever be up on my top ten or even top five best game list.  Pick it up for the DS so you can experience the greatness no matter where you are!
