Summary

Greatly passes up Mother by far!

The Good

If you remember the hit Mother (Earthbound for NES) then you can get a picture of what this game is like. It's your same ol' preschool psychic hero saving the world except with better graphics, better gameplay, better story, and pretty much better everything. I was extremely pleased with the music. There's different battle music for all kinds of enemies and the other music is great too.

The Bad

Well, not much really. The only thing I can think is that it was a little too tough early in the game. I know part of RPG's is leveling up and getting stronger, and I'm a hardcore RPG fan, but it was a little to tough to beat some of the Shark Gang and the Robot thing. The Gang members could knock you out in three attacks if not less early on and if you didn't level up then you'd be losing each battle.

The Bottom Line

Excellent game for all you Role Players out there. (yah I'm talkin to you)
