That remake is great. Doesnt take anything away but adds just enough to keep old players interested. The Advanced series never really gave me the same feel and I didnt become hopelessly addicted like I did with the original. I dont know why.
on that note, god help me, i have never touched Chrono Trigger
But hear me out, our family had one console before the 64 era, it was a sega genesis, no snes for me at the time, when the playstation came along, chrono trigger already had its following so getting the double pack with CT and FF4 was damn near impossible, now that being said, i hear loads of praise for chrono trigger, only that it was incredible, no one has ever told me what it is like, how it plays, the plot, anything, so im asking someone to tell me what makes it incredible, i wanna hear gameplay specifics and the like, trust me though, ive heard all the "your missing out" and "how could you not play it? replys i need
Chrono Trigger is the game of fates. It can be as simple as that. Every action you make in time gives you a different ending, infact there are about 15 different endings you can obtain in the game.
It plays like your generic SNES-era RPG, but with a rich story and inventive gameplay to keep you interested in playing.
And the thing that makes the game different from most RPG's of it's time, is that you don't have to follow the storyline. If you know the game and play it enough, you can make shortcuts here and there.
It is one of the classics of RPG's and one of the greatest ever made. When you play it yourself, you will then understand everything. Pretty much telling you what it is is only half of the sensation this game has, you need to play it to understand the second half.
In all honestly my advice would be to hold off for a while, save some cash, work on your studies....Then buy the shit out of a 3DS. That game library looks like its gonna stack up nice.
But if you must, Yoshi's island 2. Cant beat it for nice old fashion (but very fun) platforming. And its adequate re-play value with the challenges and extra few characters. Thats one of the few games of mine thats gonna survive the great "trade in to pay for Reach" purge.
This is pretty cool I guess. I think i was hoping for an original game, but now that I think about it, we're probably better off with a port. I'm just a little shocked they went with 3. I would have thought one of the first 2 would have been easier to do for the handheld
