I finally got this game. The people from eBay finally admitted that they made a mistake, but I still haven't gotten a refund even though I sent it back to them and it arrived well over a week ago. In the meantime, I found someone selling a used copy on Amazon complete with the CD and everything for the same price as new... and it was in mint condition... AND it got to my house 2 days after I bought it. Stupid eBay (grumble grumble).

Anyway, I haven't had a lot of time to play this game but what I've seen so far has been awesome, and the music is fantastic. I can tell I'm going to love this game once I really get into it. It kinda sucks that after all the trouble I went through, the soundtrack CD turned out to only have 5 tracks. Joke's on me!

I recently thought of the best description of the game. Chrono Trigger with a greatly expanded Bomber's Notebook. That's magic.

I love how the worst character becomes the best character as soon as she gets some spells much, much later in the game.

OK I'm really anal about getting everything an rpg has to offer. So that means I will do all side quest and find everything I can fine so I have a question for those that have finished the game. I recently got back into playing this a quickly forgot how good this game is. How long did it take to beat it? I'm just over 11 hours. Also how much stuff did you do when you beat it? Did you just do a straight run through? Or like me find everything!? Would appreciate any input from those that beat it already or think they just about beat it! I would say I'm only about 20% through it!

Tech101...I'm not that anal about finding everything in an RPG. Doing just a straight run through of the game I believe took me over 40 hours...but I will check that later (after work and soccer practice) and post a note on my 3DS.

oh yes, chapter 4 is when the game's like "ok, have the best strategy or you will die at any boss"

I'm almost done with the game, just decided to finish up some sidequests, will probably beat it this weekend. Still dissappointed there isn't more music as what little music is there is awesome. (for a comparison, unless there's a lot of new music near the end of the game, it's likely half the size of Chrono Trigger's soundtrack)

Beat it about a week ago. Good god near the end the story gets incredible. I never had much problems with too many bosses except a real close one with the Hell Spider in chapter 4, but then again like most RPGs i kill anything that moves. I just have a tendency to do that. Anyway great game.

I'm glad this thread got revived, because it reminded me that I really want to play this game. I recently picked up Final Fantasy XIII and I'm eagerly anticipating Chrono Trigger on Monday, so I'm on a big RPG kick right now. How noob-friendly would you guys say this is? I've never been that great at RPGs, however much I enjoy them.

As far as rpgs go this is a bit old school with a revamped battle system. You can't mindlessly spam the attack button through the battles. Sure it does have a auto battle button but the further you get you just have to be on your toes and be prepared to group the enemies together. Story IMO is really good but nothing to ambitious. Its the warping from one time line to another that get interesting. Get stuck in one timeline warp to the other to figure out why your stuck. It pretty much just bounces from one timeline to another then back again but its the decisions you make that can end your game. However you will be able to pick up right where you left off from that decision and select the other. Either way you will have to go back and make a change in the other timeline to progress. I believe its easy to get into for non experienced players and hard to put down.from what I here it get difficult in later chapters but I'm just getting back into this again so ill find out soon how hard it will get. Chrono trigger is a great game but it might seem a little dated by today's standards. Still it does share some similarities with this game.

I started this a couple of weeks ago, but stopped when I got Okamiden. I've almost finished that, so Radiant Historia will be the next game I pop into my DS. Looking forward to it.

i'd say it's pretty noob-friendly, at least at first — you won't be asked to do the impossible, and it's not like they don't show you how to group enemies together and stuff to perform combos. you'll also never lack for knowing what you were doing at a given point in time, lol — the White Chronicle will pretty much map out your timelines for you, and each node/event has a description there. it's definitely old-school, though — expect to backtrack around a bit in order to do some sidequest-y things, and expect to grind at times if you start having trouble defeating enemies easily.

a tip, though — if you're familiar with other RPGs, usually poison attacks don't do crap for damage... not in this game! it does mad damage to most enemies i've come across so far (including bosses, haha) so poison the hell out of everything that annoys you :3

Yeah, poison is awesome in this game.

also, once you get into chapter 6 (SH), make sure to check a well in the desert area. You will NOT regret it.

oh, idk, i started regretting it when i'd finished that trio of sidequests and went on to the hardest freakin' boss in the game there... holy crap that little gnome was cheap as all get-out.

i guess it was good times in the end, though, since by the time i'd leveled my party enough to beat him (lvl 70 combos using Aht's Dancing Death = total exp-win), everyone (sans Eruca) was about fifteen levels over where they probably should've been to beat the game... those battles were a breeze at that point, haha~

why would you do the secret boss BEFORE the final boss? They're always tougher you fool. :p

Yeah, this game was amazing. If I didn't buy Mass Effect just recently this would be my favorite game I've played so far this year (and even that's arguable). Considering the other games include Ghost Trick, Okamiden and Portal 2, that is impressive.

Also, FORTY SIX HOURS. That's 10 more than I played for...well...Mass Effect. Everything was awesome. Characters (even minor characters are memorable), battles, sidequests, music (I wanted more of it though!), graphics (2d sprites are still awesome), dialogue (not too melodramatic), and obviously, story. It's compared to Chrono Trigger and honestly it's close to being as good. It shouldn't be passed up by any fan of old or new JRPGs or video games with good stories (which regardless of what people say, is still way too rare).

I gave up trying to do the secret boss a while ago. Too difficult for me.

I would like to point out that the supposed best Zelda ever is (so far at least) only tied with this game as the best game this year.
