5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Nintendo RPG in history., July 10, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Earthbound (Video Game)
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.

Earthbound 2 is known as "Mother 2" in Japan. It is the second game in the series. You might be referring to "Mother 3" which was only released in Japan on the gameboy advance. A fan group made a translation patch for Mother 3 so English speaking people can play it. It's quite good. You can play all older games using emulators.
