    This is still a classic and still a fantastic game that needs to be played by any and all RPG lovers. The controls can be very, very irritating at times but the core experience, characters and storyline have weathered the storm of porting and still provide as much enjoyment as they ever had. I'm still kind of cheesed-off by the butchering of Frog's script, though.

    This is still the Chrono Trigger fans have come to know and love even despite Square Enix' stubborn refusal to shape its games to suit the iOS platform; this can dampen the experience, but its core still shines through.

    Despite Square Enix's slovenly porting skills, none of Chrono Trigger's brilliance has been obscured in this rather lazy iOS port. Hours of riveting RPG entertainment await those of you willing to look past the fuzzy graphics and occasionally awkward controls.

    As a game, Chrono Trigger is perfect. As a port, we've seen better.

    A terrible port of a wonderful game- meaning the end product ends up somewhere in the middle.

    I had not had an opportunity to play this gem before since I never had a SNES and I haven't found it for the DS so I was extremely happy when it came to the Appstore. From what I've heard, it's not that good of a port but so far I'm enjoying it none the less. The soundtrack is one of the best I've heard in a video game. Full Review »

    A very welcome addition on my ipad. I wasn't expecting this game to come on IOS at all. One more reason to start playing this game again since there are new additions ( like touch screen , etc. ). Full Review »
