Did You Know?


In the US/Canada version of the game, after completing the game once players may encounter a battle with three characters returning from Chrono Trigger: Slash, Flea, and Ozzie. These characters are (obviously) named after rock legends: Slash of Guns 'N Roses, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ozzy Osbourne. They are also a mistranslation; in the original Chrono Trigger, they were named after condiments (Mayonnaise, Vinegar, and Soy Sauce). However, thinking that the joke would not go over well, translator Ted Woolsey changed the names. See more »


When Serge changes back to his own body from Lynx's body, he is naked in the room, however when he gets out through the door he is wearing all of his normal gear again when no one really gave him any clothes to put on. See more »

Square's Newest Masterpiece!
12 September 2000 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

Though I wouldn't call myself an RPG fanatic, I definitely appreciate the genre greatly and I can honestly say I have wasted away countless hours of my life staring at the exploits of Chrono, Cloud, or heck, even The Nameless One (of Planescape Torment fame). Chrono Cross is one of those games that has an awesome story, but it starts you off halfway through it; it confuses the heck out of you for the first bit but vaguely promises to let you in on it later. So you play, and eventually you find out, but you're most of the way through the game! Is this a bad thing? Certainly not! The game pulls you in right away and doesn't let you go.

The battle system is confusing at first but once you get it down you realize it has a surprising amount of depth and boss battles become very strategic and thought-out, as opposed to Hit-heal-hit-heal experiences.

Great graphics and cutscenes, innovative new battle and experience system, and an involving storyline add up to make this the best of Square's "Big Three" releases this year.
