Game review

The story of Chrono Trigger revolves around a group of adventurers led by Crono, a young swordsman. The narrative begins at the Millennial Fair in the Kingdom of Guardia, where Crono meets a girl named Marle. Their discovery of a malfunctioning teleportation device sets them on a journey through time. The game spans several eras, from the prehistoric age to a post-apocalyptic future, with the characters striving to prevent a global catastrophe foretold to occur in their future.

Game features multiple endings, influenced by critical decisions made by the player throughout the game and the time when the final boss is confronted. This non-linear approach was groundbreaking at the time and contributed significantly to the game's replay value. Chrono Trigger deviates from traditional RPGs with its Active Time Battle system, a departure from the standard turn-based combat of most RPGs of the era. This system allows for more dynamic battles, requiring quick decision-making and strategic planning. The game also introduces combo techniques, where characters can combine their attacks for more powerful moves, adding depth to the combat system.

The legacy of Chrono Trigger is profound, influencing countless RPGs that followed. Its approach to storytelling, time travel mechanics, and character development set new standards in the genre. For many gamers, Chrono Trigger is not just a fondly remembered classic but a defining experience in the world of video games, continuing to inspire nostalgia and admiration years after its release.
