Summary

A classic....

The Good

The story is hilarious. The gameplay is as well, and the characters are quirky.

The Bad

The graphics are kinda wonky.

The Bottom Line

Earthbound is fondly remembered by it's fans for being a loving parody of RPGs. You play as Ness, a young boy whose duty it is to save the world with the help of a few friends and his various baseball bats. You are given this mission by a talking bee who was one of the most powerful warriors in the universe, and who dies by getting skooshed. And you can talk to dogs. It's a wierd game, but it's great fun.
