I feel that Metal Black manages to be remarkably Evalike despite being a shmup (thus, absolute minimal storytelling) and having been released 4 years prior to Eva's airing. It's one of the few shmups I can think of where the situation seems hopeless due to aliens having already ruined the earth and it's got a pretty strange and ambigous ending to top it all off.

The plot was fubared and gave the original cast off-screen weaksauce deaths, the new charecters far too numerous and generally forgettable, the element system was tedious while completely losing every scrap of what made Chrono Trigger so charming, and simply by existing it cut off the possibility of there ever being a true sequel to the original.

Utter and complete failure of a game. -10/10, would not recommend even as a joke.

Chrono Cross: not even once.

Can you review something objectively at least once in your life?
P.S I suggest to check a spell checker.

You do realize you're talking about something I said 3 years ago, right? Continuing your earlier thread would be a much better use of time than necroing an old topic without adding anything of value to it.
