The good news: Chrono Trigger, the much-loved Square RPG released for the SNES in 1995, is now available on Steam. The 'definitive version' of the game features updated controls, graphics and audio, and the Dimensional Vortex and Lost Sanctum dungeons that were added in 2008 for the Nintendo DS release. Steam-specific features including achievements, trading cards, and Steam Cloud saving are also supported.
The bad news: It does not look good.
There are a few issues with the Steam release that have inspired complaints. It's a port (and apparently not a very good one) of the mobile game, which saddles it with wonky, tile-based controlsremnants of the touchscreen interfaceand a font that doesn't quite inspire nostalgic fervor. Perhaps most offensive of all, there appears to be a pixel smoothing filter piled on top of it, making everything look disconcertingly slushyand there's no option to turn it off.
