    "This is not a bad recommendation, but in my opinion this is not the best game out there. I could name three others that came out in the last year that are better than Chrono Trigger probably. If you want to play for old time's sake, then that's fair. Just not the best."

    "Ys Chronicles 1 is a Japanese version of Legend of Zelda for me. It was a game that I struggled through in the 80s and now they've remade it. The graphics are better, the controls are clearer and I have loved replaying a classic. I do wish that someone had proofed the scripts for typos, but that hasn't hampered my gaming experience and the game brings back a flood of memories. Good times."
