The original Chrono Trigger was a great SNES game, but suffered from the simple problems of screen clutter, and a very odd (but sometimes amusing) translation. The DS rehash of the game fixes both of those issues. While stalwart fans (like me) may find themselves annoyed at the new translation at first, it really makes a lot more sense than the original. A few new areas and features are added, but they're more or less quite repetitive ways to grind levels or simply pass time. The Arena mode allows you to train a monster of your own, but it's not really too much fun.

Despite the lackluster aspects of the new areas, the game has seen a fantastic improvement, and utilizes the DS's touchscreen flawlessly. Any fan of the original game should go out and buy it, either for themselves or someone to share it with.
