How was this written by the same man who did Chrono Trigger and Xenogears?

In terms of gameplay and storytelling, everything Trigger did right Cross does wrong.

Its on sale on the PSN for $6 (as well as Trigger). I was not able to get into this game back when my PS1 was still working (I now use my PSP as a PS1), but should I try it again?

The other problem with this game is that the PSP cannot connect to moderm wifi outlets, and the only places left that I can still connect to are a select few fast food restaurants. Moreover, game sizes that are 260 mb take about a half hour to download, and Cross is 777 mb which means I will be sitting for a hour to get the game (assuming the connection is not disrupted while downloading).

I am also contemplating getting the PS1 version of Chrono Trigger off the psn. It has a much more manageable download size (281 mb) and is among my favorite RPGs. However, I already own the game on my SNES and DS.

Should I get both, one of them, or pass on them? These games are on sale until mid- day Tuesday.

Chrono Cross is the story of an overabundance of nothing, the epitome of quantity over quality. Over 40 characters, yet no characterization. 2 worlds (and some between-dimension stuff), yet nothing worth seeing. 12 endings, yet no satisfaction. Multiple plot viewings, yet nothing compelling. 30 - 60 hours of playing, yet nothing worth your time. It’s packed to the brim with plot details to the point that it’s almost as bafflingly convoluted as Xenosaga 3, and they all just add up to a story that does little and says even less. It’s packed to the brim with promising concepts like travel across dimensions, a future that forcibly guides its own past, and lost timelines that aren’t willing to disappear without a fight, but its pacing, general explanation style, and overcomplicated bumbling cause them all to be a confused mess of poorly assembled parts instead of a smooth narrative machine. It’s packed to the brim with party members, but can’t be bothered to give any depth or relevance to 90% of them (and the few characters the game does actually pay attention to are crappy, to boot), and just simulates individuality for them with one of the worst storytelling ideas ever conceived. It’s got all kinds of great established characters and ideas it can borrow from its widely beloved predecessor, yet everything it does to connect to Chrono Trigger seems dissatisfyingly tangential (even when those connections are an integral point of CC’s core plot!), and often it seems to just use those pre-existing concepts for the sake of destroying them (Robo was on screen for, what, 45 seconds before he was unceremoniously killed off?).

As a sequel to one of the greatest RPGs ever created, Chrono Cross is a horrible disappointment. But even on its own merit, it’s just outright awful, a rotten mess of incompetence and meaninglessness bound together by one of the most tangled and poorly executed plots I’ve encountered.

Sorry OP, but this game happened and you need to accept it.

Another one of my favorites. This one was released right at the end of my childhood, so the nostalgia overload is just unreal. Great aesthetic and colors, amazing music, easy, nostalgia overload. So fucking comfy.

I got this somewhat recently and started playing. Is it really that bad guys? I need some honest opinions, not just comparisons to Trigger.

Horrible, horrible game. Complete nonsense story and nondescript characters. The only remotely good aspects are the backgrounds and the music.
