    The Worst Port Ever

    Most people will give you the respect of agreeing that CT is at least a contender for best RPG ever. Mostly the disagreement is just between FF7 or CT which are both good. Unfortunately, the PSN ROM of the PSX port of th... Read Full Review

    I have to admit I love Chrono Cross although I gave it only 5/10 cos of the annoying battles, unskippable scenes and that battle theme LOL But Chrono Trigger, on the other hand has perfect battles that are short and swee... Read Full Review

    Chrono Trigger is an absolute masterpiece that any self-respecting gamer should own in some form or another.

    Back in good old '96, Square was a company that saw success, but not the ten million dollar success they saw with Final Fantasy VII. More of a large cult following kind of success. Said cult following got very excited wh... Read Full Review

    Beautiful in every single way. Square knew what they were doing.

    Square had created a masterpiece out of this game. It is just as fun on the playstation as it would be anywhere else. This gem completes any collection and still remains to be one of the best video games in history. I lo... Read Full Review
