"Best. Game. Ever." - GameSpot
A game hated the world over (mostly because it's not Chrono Trigger), Chrono Cross was a lame excuse to bring back the characters from the first game and not even use them properly, proving that Square has absolutely no intention of giving Chrono Trigger a proper sequel. Would've been instantly better if it didn't have the word "Chrono" in the title.
The DS re-release of Chrono Trigger makes sure you know Square's stance on the game - it is completely and utterly canon.
