Day 7: SatelliteSoda February Draw-A-Day
. CHRONO CROSS
Okay, I'm not crazy about Cross. A lot of people gonna hate me for this, but...
First off, in my opinion, it didn't hold a candle to it's predecessor, Chrono Trigger
in a lot of ways. TOO many characters! There was hardly any character development in the game for you to grow an association with the characters other than the main ones.
Another reason I personally feel is that though the battle system was unique, it still wasn't as exciting as Trigger's Dual/Triple tech system. 1 character usually owned 1 or two techs each. Some of them doubled, making it kinda stale. I was much more content with 6-7 party members with their own arsenal of duals and triples.
Lastly, for them to even keep the same prefix on the title, it broke a LOT of canonical ties with Trigger. Not gonna spoil it for anyone who have never played it, but yeah... Lots of plot holes when linking to Trigger. I also thought that only having one alternate dimension isn't really "time-traveling" when Trigger had multiple eras and periods and all affected each other. Trigger is still definitely the "Time-traveling RPG" to this day to me.
Other than that, Mitsuda's bossin' soundtrack and the overall game was actually good. Just not a good "Chrono" title in my honest opinion.
