CHRONO TRIGGER (2018) reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Chrono Trigger is a classic J-RPG Gameplay The Frame Gameplay of Chronotrigger is somewhat different from the classic J-RPG. You walk through villages and Dungeons with a group of up to three People, networks enemies in the numerous Fights and collect some more hidden Treasures. Depending on how fast a Character is, it can act more often or less often. A small Luxury is that you can reset the Group at any time outside of the Fights from all available Characters. A little special here is the Combat System, because many Of the Characters ' Techniques have a certain Range of action and Opponents as well as the Hero Group change location every now and then. Depending on the Position of the Enemies, either an Attack with a circular or one with a line-shaped Range of action Is appropriate. Unlike the Usual in the Genre, Characters learn new Techniques not with the Rise of the Level, but by means of Technical Points, which are awarded to the participating Characters in addition to experience points after the Fight. If Characters have learned certain Techniques, they can perform combination attacks with other Characters in Combat, using up the Pull of all participating Characters but are often powerful. Graphics, Soundtrack The Graphics are kept in good old Pixeloptics, which can have a higher or lower Resolution depending on the Setting. Snacks can be seen partly in the Form of small Anime scenes, which are very reminiscent of the dragon Ball Franchice From the drawing style. As you would expect from a SquareEnix title, the Soundtrack is very well succeeded and implemented. Summary Pro: For a JRPG quite grind free, resulting in a good Flow of Play offers numerous characters and Techniques that allow a Variety of Tactics multible ends (some of them by Defeat in certain Fights) automatic Saving while entering A new Area of Fighting Can be dodged quite often New Game + Even non-fighting Characters get Experience Points Neutral: Final Opponents can be challenged from a certain Spot in the Game at any time Contra: Without a Complete Solution you are thrown up n German Translation not always flawless Most or all Successes can only be achieved in the New Game + and for everyone you have to defeat the Final opponent at a certain Time in the Game (doesn't make the Game worse now, but I will have noted) Conclusion: Chrono Trigger is primarily aimed at Fans of the JRPG Genre without unnecessarily stretching the Playing Time by Grinding and is therefore also recommended to those who do not want to know the Genre but want to get to know it.
