I want to know what people think is the best version of Chono Trigger. I am playing the PS version now but I think I may buy the DS version. Which one is best? (even take the NES original into account)

id say the ds version is the best since it has the extras of the ps1 version without the bad aspects, but its more fun playing it on a big tv with a snes controller

As someone who has only played the SNES version and the PS1 version..I can't say much about the ds version but I would say that might be your best bet. If not definetly pick up the SNES version. PS1 version is bugged with some crappy and uneccesary loading times.

I played SNES and Playstation versions. Their graphics were much same except Playstation had few bonuses. That's true about loading time. I will play DS version. I am sure that DS will have similar bonuses to Playstation version.

If you want to play on a bigger screen go with the super nintendo version. If you want the extra content go with the ds version because the loading times are next to none.

I can safely say that the DS version is an exact transfer of the SNES version. I'd go with that one if you don't get the SNES version.

The Playstation version of Chrono Trigger is the best and I don't care if the loading times are slow or whatever. Just be grateful that Final Fantasy Chronicles has Chrono Trigger to go along with Final Fantasy IV

The DS version is the best, if you don't mind spending the extra cash to get it. Final Fantasy Chronicles on the PS1, with Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IV, is a real steal at the prices it's going for. And the loading times aren't nearly as big a deal as people make them out to be. If waiting one extra second (literally) for a battle to start ruins a game for you, well, I really don't know what to say about that.

The DS and the SNES are basically the same game except the DS one has a new dungeon that both the SNES and the Playstation don't.

DS version has the PS1's anime cut scenes and no lag.

So what if the DS version of Chrono Trigger has a new bonus dungeon or whatever. I just prefer Final Fantasy Chronicles since it has both FFIV and Chrono Trigger and I dont care about the so called loading.
