Chronus Arc is competent RPG that fails to deliver on one of the most important aspects of the genre: the story. It delivers an uninspiring narrative, coupled with a forgettable soundtrack and fast travel and escape mechanics that, while solid, rob the game of any sense of difficulty. If you're looking purely for old-school RPG mechanics, you may have some fun with Chronus Arc. Otherwise, you may want to look to another one of the many great RPGs the 3DS has to offer.
It is far from perfect, and not in the upper echelons, alongside the RPG legends, but it delivers a very enjoyable puzzle-cum-adventure experience full of charming visuals and a very melodic soundtrack. Other than some frustrations with some harder than normal in-dungeon puzzle arrangements and a shock to the system in the power of enemies when not grinding enough, this is a great classic throwback to what most would call "the good old days." Approach Chronus Arc with the right expectations and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Chronus Arc is a very competent RPG in that it does nothing wrong, but it doesn’t stand out in any way. To be perfectly blunt, it did nothing for me in terms of telling a story and it’s probably an experience I would forget in a few weeks. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, however, and I would recommend it if you’re looking for an old school JRPG experience during a rainy day or boring weekend. It’s not a revolutionary title by any means, but in terms of nostalgia value it accomplishes what it set out to do.
