* InNameOnly: ''Cross'' is indeed a sequel to ''Trigger'', taking place in the same universe, but it's just so far removed from its predecessor that some consider it this.



* LoveItOrHateIt: Barring the game's music, everything. The battle system is generally thought of as fun and unique or needlessly complicated, and the story you will either think is deep and well thought out, or nonsensical, slow.

** During the scene with the [[spoiler:burning orphanage]], you can hear ''[[spoiler:[[HellIsThatNoise the children screaming in fear and pain.]]'' In fact, the entire level is this.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The elemental plates you can steal from the dragons. The black plate especially (though getting it is something of a GuideDangIt to get. You have to wake up the Black Dragon before you can fight it/steal its plate which requires a rather involved sidequest. Otherwise you just take its treasure from its sleeping body.). Wearing one makes you absorb all damage from its respective element. [[spoiler:FATE and Dario]] are some of the hardest fights in the game normally, but with the black plate equipped, at least one character is basically immortal. And this applies to any 1 element using enemies, which is most of them.

Added DiffLines:

** All the characters that can be recruited by Serge prior to the Lynx portion of the game are locked out from use. The amount of potential lost there is staggering. In particular, Leena will never be able to encounter her father and learn what happened to him because she can't be in the party at the point in the game where you encounter him.

** The S.S. Zelbess. It's not difficult; rather, it's boring. You're on the Zelbess trying to find a way into the Dead Sea, but Fargo manages to swindle you out of your boat, leaving you trapped on the ship until you find a way to get the boat back. In addition, there's also a fairly involved sidequest that has to be completed during this portion of the game; failing to complete it at a certain time makes the reward LostForever. Oh, and the whole time, you get to hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBuDsdsa9Jg this]] blaring over the speakers.

** High Tier: Serge is so much stronger than any other character in the game that he borders on this. And you can't remove him from the party until NewGamePlus, either. Glenn is also incredibly strong, especially with his dual tech X-Strike with Serge. The only problem with Glenn is that you have to refuse to save Kid instead of looking for her medicine. If you don't do that, Glenn is LostForever. Leena also is great in the early game (for having a high magic stat and a great grid, and the only decent choice for magic unless you forsake Glenn for Razzly)

** Diminish. It halves all element damage. It makes a lot of bosses much easier to fight than they would.

** ''Chrono Cross'' players can largely be divided into two groups: those who were shocked and/or outraged upon learning that Crono and Marle had similarly been [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome killed in the intervening years during the Fall of Guardia]], or those who insist that the Ghost Children aren't their spirits but some sort of manifested memory, [[HesJustHiding and the two characters are still alive somewhere]]. Similarly, the "Now eliminating Prometheus" (aka Robo) scene is either dramaticor a contrived, mean-spirited way of pissing on the fans of the classic game and its characters, especially since none of the characters in-universe even know who he was, but ''Trigger'' players would.

Added DiffLines:

** The Dead Sea. Not only do you get to play as Lynx, but you get to do it in a place with art to die for. You get to see waves standing still, the ruins of a future that was erased from existence, and get a good amount of plot exposition handled in about as straightforward and engaging way, even moreso if you bring the right characters along. Plus, you top it off by fighting [[ThatOneBoss Miguel]] in a battle set to [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic "Prisoners of Fate".]] As far as RPG levels go, it's one of the best ever.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The initial premise with Serge trying to uncover what caused him to end in an alternate timeline was a pretty interesting start, which sadly got resolved less than half way through the game and was mostly an attempt at trying to resolve the TimeyWimeyBall in ''ChronoTrigger'', but sadly only made the time paradoxes in both games [[MindScrew even more confusing]].
