YMMV / Radical Dreamers

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Being scored by Yasunori Mitsuda (his second project), it should come as no surprise that the soundtrack is phenomenal. What is surprising is just how cinematic and atmospheric it manages to be, despite the limitations of its 16-bit hardware and SNES sound chip. Several of the best songs were alluded to or repackaged wholesale for Chrono Cross (see the Musical Nod entry on that page for more details), but some - such as "Days of Summer", "Final Confrontation", and "The Organ" - are unique to this game.
    • "Gale" counts as well, being vastly superior to its counterpart in Chrono Cross.
  • Cult Classic
  • Fan Translation: Demiforce did one from Japanese to English, which later got worked from English to French and German by others. The patch makes a few changes, notably making the game slightly harder.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment/Hilarious in Hindsight: The Kid and the Sunflower scenario can end with Kid's soul being sealed into a knife and Magil performing a ritual in order to reincarnate her, listing several of the possible species - and in particular suggesting the Lavoid - wait, did you just create the Time Devourer?
  • Keep Circulating the ROM: A necessity for a game that was only released for an obscure Japanese add-on.
  • Tear Jerker: Quite a few of the stories have these, including the main one.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The SuperXtreme Alphacosmos Police Case EX Ultra scenario. Seriously.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The main story's ending is this in part: although Kid and Magil depart from Serge, Kid has regained her memory as Schala Zeal. Serge and thus the viewer aren't there to witness it, but you just know that as soon as the two of them are safe, there is a proper reunion to be had between siblings, something Chrono Cross fails to deliver on.
