We were hoping Digital Foundry would take a look Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers EditionBecause as we explained on our site difficult review As of the new PlayStation 4 remaster, the performance issues that plagued this re-release are simply unacceptable.
In our latest video analysis, Digital Foundry largely mirrors what we found during the review process above. The game’s frame rate is pretty terrible overall – it drops dynamically all over the place during exploration and combat. Chrono Cross remains a really good PS1 JRPG – but the fact that it kind of works worst Than 1999 is a shame because it can’t hit 30fps most of the time.
Tom Morgan of Digital Foundry goes so far as to call it “one of the worst performing games I’ve seen on PS4,” which is amazing considering this is basically a fake PS1 title.
To make matters worse, there is a great deal of stuttering on top Really sad frame rate. These stutters tend to occur during combat and, as we mentioned in our review, can cause noticeable input lag.
Well, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is only one version is this real It’s poorly optimized – and it’s the same story on the Nintendo Switch as it is on PC. Hopefully Square Enix will fix these issues – at least in part – but the complete lack of communication on this topic doesn’t inspire entirely confidence. It’s also worth noting that the re-optimization program didn’t have any update on day one either.
