Truly one of the best games ever made, it is one of the best RPGs if not THE BEST ever made. The game broke many barriers and limitations that most other RPGs of its time had and paved way a road for future RPGs. One of the best storylines and a original cast of characters, amazing gameplay and beautiful visuals and music, this game will capture your heart if you are new to the series or to RPGs. RPG lovers will surely enjoy this timeless classic as the game has aged perfectly throughout the years, even to this day the game has been remade and re-enhanced several times as it has been released on the Playstation, Nintendo DS and recently the iOS. Regardless of what system you get it on, this game is and will be worth every single penny. 9.9/10

Anyways, I never played this game until this year. It was a blast and I still cant get some of the music outta my head. Love it!

Having a "mute" hero, like a talking hero, has its pros and cons. It never really even ocurred to me that he was mute when I played. I guess I never thought "What does Chrono have to say about this?" and instead just drew my own conculsions using my imagination,

@ skiptomylou41k.

Well if like me you were unable to play the original (because it wasn't released where I'm from first time) then the DS game is your only choice next to emulation. Old as it may be it's still a brilliant game and the extra additions and side quests to the DS game are worth it if you ask me and definitely add to the replay value. Then there's the fact that the latest version is portable so you can bring it with you wherever you want and on top of that it's not even expensive.

#9: Good job. Now that you've come this far, go back to where "I" began. Follow the instructions and claim your prize!

having the main character mute in a game with such a rich story is beyond reason
joey123 (on 20 July 2009)
great rpg...
9/10

3 things i didnt like

having a mute main character
lack of character development
too easy
skiptomylou41k (on 10 July 2009)
why the hell would i buy such an old game with marginal improvements for such a high price? please tell me
IxisNaugus (on 07 July 2009)
Buy CTDS people, it's an slightly improved version of the already groundbreaking title.

I still get chills when I play this game and the music comes on. Yasunori Mitsuda was a melodic genius, and SE needs to lay off the guys at www.chronocompendium.com for Crimson Echoes. That game was going to be incredible, and they destroyed it not even a month before its release date... Same thing happened with Resurrection...

This game is the definition of RPG.
shizzlee (on 28 February 2009)
First RPG I ever played.
Johann (on 16 October 2008)

Godot (on 20 September 2008)
Best. Game. Ever.
HanzoTheRazor (on 25 August 2008)
10/10 Masterpiece! My 3rd all time favorite on the SNES and the best RPG on it too. Easily 1 of the best ever as well.
oliist (on 23 April 2008)
Such a good a game happens only twice in decade at maximum.
I really love everything about this game.
BringBackChrono (on 12 April 2008)

skip (on 09 March 2008)

it was re-released on the playstation alongside ff4 in N.A. 2001
Oyvoyvoyv (on 08 March 2008)
Has this game ever been re-released, or is in plan to either VC or DS? I can't find it, but people speak so foundly of it I have to try it.
TruckOSaurus (on 05 March 2008)
I never get tired of this game! The music, the characters, the story, the battle system everything is perfect! Played through it countless times!
skip (on 26 February 2008)
this is gaming perfection
Riot Of The Blood (on 12 February 2008)
Who wrote the summary? It could use a little work.
hersenravel (on 09 February 2008)
JP published by sega?
Why SNES game by sega?
tokilamockingbrd (on 22 January 2008)
best. rpg. ever.
Picko (on 02 January 2008)
This game is a true masterpiece. When I first played it I had little experience of RPGs and thought it was wonderful. Since then I have completed far more RPGs and this one remains nothing short of exceptional.

The best part about this game in my opinion is that it lacks many of the most annoying characteristics of JRPGs. For example, you don't have to worry about random encounters, which is great in the dungeons but is especially good on the map as it allows the game to focus around the story rather than constantly fighting.
thelulaby (on 06 December 2007)
One of the greatest games of all time
FreeTalkLive rocks! (on 06 December 2007)
This and FF6 are the two best RPGs of all time. I am proud to say I still own this game and hope to play it for many years to come!
Faxanadu (on 02 December 2007)
This is the RPG of eternity. Unsurpassable.
lolita (on 22 November 2007)
Awesome gameplay, superb graphics, memorable characters and original story with multiple endings!

This is the best RPG on SNES!
facher83 (on 15 November 2007)
Chrono Trigger on WiiVC, anyone? God I hope soon. We all know the issues.... PS version is cool and all, but load times suck. I want the original feel back on a new machine. Mine disappeared years ago (somebody borrowed and stole it?) and have had to resort to PS1 version, or 'other' options.
MontanaHatchet (on 14 November 2007)
Johnny made this game the best RPG of all time.
Fai2012 (on 02 October 2007)
Music was by Yasunori Mitsuda... how can that be missed... >.>...
YeahDude!!! (on 17 September 2007)
Damn. Those cheeters stole CT's 10th place!!
YeahDude!!! (on 16 September 2007)
And with my vote Chrono Trigger enters the top 10.

Hurray!!!!

MontanaHatchet (on 10 September 2007)
Yes fazz, you, who posted 16 days after me, know exactly what I was talking about.

It at least deserves to be ahead of Resident Evil 4 Wii, I mean, come on.
freeetje (on 23 August 2007)
This is one of the best games EVER ... It's unbelievable how mucht time i've spended on CT :)

Well, maybe it's time to play it again :p
PowerOn (on 15 August 2007)
I still have for CT, battery still alive and kick. I have made max level on every characters :) Love it!
RAcCoOnErOuS (on 12 August 2007)
Your right...

20/10
great game
Viper1 (on 10 August 2007)
The User Review was perhaps the worst User Review in the history of User Reviews.

In the top 5 all time greatest games ever made.
fazz (on 02 August 2007)
Everyone Montana? I think I'm part of the "everyone" you mention and I voted this game 10.

And this game is among the top ten on this site.

So I can't see your point.
Maverick Hunter Z (on 29 July 2007)
This game is a gem, pity the sequel was such a mediocre addition.
kimoy (on 28 July 2007)
@ montana.. badly.. its got a freaking score of 8.70... if thats bad then i dont want to see good lol
MontanaHatchet (on 18 July 2007)
Everyone rate this game badly because it's not from Nintendo.

This is one of the greatest games of all time, it should be ahead of many of the higher ranked games.
Punisher (on 08 July 2007)
Even though this one NEVER ARRIVED TO THE EUROPE, i have played it for many times with my pc....over and over again. I think we should pressure SQ to make this to Ds, remake or not. :p
naznatips (on 03 July 2007)
My favorite RPG of all time. Nothing even comes close.
ZZetaAlec (on 29 June 2007)
SEQUAL!SEQUAL!SEQUAL!
altasia (on 29 June 2007)
Never played this game, still hoping square will make a remake for this on the DS.
DonWii (on 28 June 2007)
There is a review section...
Shadow)OS (on 27 June 2007)
This game should be second right behind OoT in my opinion.
Fuzzmosis (on 27 June 2007)
Greatest silent protaganist since Link. Awesome RPG elements that were ahead of it's time, branching story possibilities, multiple endings, and an impressive look at changing the past to alter the present and change the future's demise.

Unless you absolutely loathe RPGs, if you havn't played it, do so.
ItsaMii (on 24 June 2007)
If I get the ones who gave CT less than 10 I will kill them.
NightStalker (on 18 June 2007)
one of my fav. RPGs of all time. I think it ties with Xenogears and FFVII.
deidei (on 09 June 2007)
Yeah and it needs a boxart. Some edit this profile please
jonboy101 (on 09 June 2007)
One of the finest games square ever made.
