Product Description

The Earth is under attack by a strange group of aliens known as Giygas, and only a young boy and his friends have the power to save the planet. Unlike more traditional RPGs, EARTHBOUND actually takes place in a modern-day suburb featuring all kinds of wacky twists and turns. You're Ness, and along with your pals Paula, Jeff, and Poo you've got to hunt down the aliens sending them back to where they came. Armed with a baseball bat and psychic powers, your party must hit the road in search of the extraterrestrial scum. Along the way, you'll encounter all kinds of weird characters who will give you high-tech gadgets, time machines, and other items you'll need to prevail. The fate of the world is in your hands!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game Ever. April 3, 2010
By B
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am not surprised by the cost of this game on Amazon. My copy was stolen many years ago and due to no chance of a re-make, it would be nice to have this game again. Out of countless hours of gameplay over 20+ years using various platforms, this is still my favorite game of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Nintendo RPG in history. July 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is perhaps one of the most legendary RPG games to ever grace a system and one of the rarest games to buy or possess. You have to try this game atleast once if you are an RPG fan or even if you are a fan of games in general. It's storyline is very unique and at times is never afraid to make fun of itself as an RPG in dialogue. What also is a special treat above all else is the battle system in it's time redifined most games, instead of walking 5 steps and you are in a battle(like Final Fantasy etc etc) the enemy tries to run and touch you to initiate battle, once battle is commenced the background is different and morphs itself every 3 seconds which i can safely say has not been done in most games and sometimes during attacks can be funny due to the fact that some enemies either are afraid to attack, or just grin instead of attacking which creates witty dialogue.

In my personal opinion Earthbound is a timeless game, that has slipped into obscurity and has gathered a huge fanbase in America along with the United Kingdom in recent years due to this fact. There is an Earthbound 2 over in Japan, but sadly the release appears to be doubtful overseas in America or United Kingdom, as for a re-release on VC or SNES it has been doubted that there will not be a re-release due to copyright claims that Nintendo would receive in the U.S. or overseas. I truly hope that Nintendo can find a way just even if it was for one day only, to get the whole Earthbound series out around the world. For the fans like me, or others who are just playing this game for the first time with awe, this is more than a game, it is everything an RPG fan dreams of at night.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   

Here's my review of a very special game. The game is EarthBound. EarthBound is certainly at the#1 spot for my favorite game ever. It has had quite a big impact on my life. Why is this? There was a period of time about a year ago when I was hardly a gamer at all. I had been expecting so much from the two Mario Wii titles released around that same time (New Super Mario Bros. Wii as well as Super Mario Galaxy 2.) and ended up hating both of them for different reasons. Because of this, I nearly lost all faith in Nintendo and hardly played video games at all... but then one day in November 2010, I happened to stumble upon EarthBound. The game quickly got ahold of my interest and I became addicted to it almost immediately.

While Pokémon Red was technically my first RPG, this is the game that totally got me hooked on the genre and since then, I've moved on to other RPG classics like Chrono Trigger, Super Mario RPG, and EarthBound's Japan Only sequel, Mother 3. But before I ramble about how much I love this game, I'd like to write about a few things to know while reading this.

In the year 1995, role playing games, to some extent, were still following the clichés that Dragon Warrior established 9 years earlier. Pretty much all of them took place in a medieval type setting. You could find a castle in pretty much all of them. Protagonists were usually equipped with swords or crossbows. You could almost never find a car in any of them.

And most importantly, magic was your main source of power. But then all of a sudden, EarthBound arrives in the U.S., an RPG that disobeyed nearly every cliche I mentioned above. The game takes place sometime in the 90's in Eagleland (an odd parody of America).

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably one of my five favorites April 9, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've consistently played video games for decades now and I can't think of a single game quite like this one. It is epic in size and scope, pokes fun at itself from time to time, and is just a ton of fun to play. I sold all my games awhile back but letting this one go was one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. I'm hoping they'll re-release it as a download on wii or something, but if that doesn't happen in a few years I may consider buying it (as much as it sounds crazy to buy a system from the 90's and a 16 for over $100).

2.0 out of 5 stars This review is for caution April 25, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've read in many threads in places such as 4chan, facebook, etc. that people are selling fake cartridges of the beloved Earthbound. This is a simple process for these people. They buy the dirt cheap cartridges off the internet, make the fake cover art, and in some cases sell them sealed in the box (which can all be done cheap) so u cant even tell if they're real. The only way to tell if the game is real is buying opening up the cartridge itself and look at the chip inside... which is impossible if you're buying it new and are a collector. Buy with caution people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game,yet Ridiculous Sellar Prices July 31, 2012
By Harry
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Especially the ridiculous price of 19,995.95.Nobody in their right mind would pay thousands for a video game.It is a great game,yet the price ranges from 110-19,995.99 is more than I am willing to pay for this video game regardless of the fact that I would buy right now,yet not at those prices.People can not afford what y'all are asking for.If I had 19,995.99 I would spend money on a house or put it up to buy something else.
