I've never seen Zeality that cruel o.o''  Kinda scary, but CT doesn't have many flaws except for singing mountain.  That's the only flaw i saw in the whole game.  Of course, if we wanted to add singing mountain, it'd require time to put that big blotch of mud back into 65,000,000 BC.  The map wouldn't be too hard to put together cause we have the map, just don't know what happens in there.  But yeah...

What are Woosleyisms?


Changes in the script made by translator Ted Woosley that negatively impacted the game. Changing of "sake" to "pop" is often cited, although this is more Nintendo's fault that Woosleys.

The only thing i can find in this game to be an actual flaw without geting into detail is that well there's a few... Ayla isn't a big enough part of this game.... you coul blow through Zeal in 30 mins or less then it's to the stupid dark ages.... i'll think of some later.

Well, that brings us back to Singing Mountain - Ayla's supposed sidequest.

Honestly, I thought it's environments lacked vibrance in its atmosphere, which is why in my mind CC>>CT.

I (think I) voted for "too short"...

I wanted to see more of Zeal. The other ages weren't as good. The future sucked (although it was the most atmospheric age AFTER Zeal :) ).

I agree.

Zeal was too rushed. The moment you get there, it's all, "The Gurus are gone!", "The Queen has gone nuts and Lavos is coming!". It could've been more peaceful at first, with the party befriending Schala, and, rather than her just sealing the Gate, it would've been better if she had to struggle to bring herself to preventing her new friends from returning.

Then everything would've went nuts as usual. :D

I hate to admit it, but Zeal was the most eye-candyish. Though I can't stand the place/it's inhabitants/Magus and especially Schala.

Honestly, I thought the whole Zeal line was a CT flaw. Not its existance, per se, but the fact that it had so much air-time annoyed me.

I think that the real flaw of Chrono Trigger are the plot holes. The ability/magic system was pretty linear,  but you can't expect too much from a game that old.

Zeal needed more lore and history.

No. It doesn't. I'd much rather hear about wtf happened to civilization from 1999-2300 than hear more shit about Zeal.

It's quite evident what happened to civilisation from 1999 to 2300.

Yeah, but it'd be nice to see more of the people's struggles and stuff right after the 'Apocalypse'.

Oh really, Chrono 99. So can you tell me quite how the present civilizations became Arris and Trann? Also, tell me quite when the robots started acting out of control and killing people etc. Oh yeah, explain to me quite how Death Peak was formed/why it's the important spot for the Time Egg. To summarize, I'd like to know quite completely what happened from 2000-2299 A.D. in regards to everything about the world including Lavos, civilization, geography etc. If you can answer all that 100%, then I apologize and must have missed the "learn everything about the future" portion of the game. Ingame facts, please...I'd rather keep the theorizing out.
