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!
This role-playing game is set in the modern world and is filled with irreverent humor. You play as a teenage boy who must save the world from a malevolent alien.

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's graphics are simple, but the cute character designs and the beautiful colors make them look fantastic! The music is brilliant. In playing EarthBound, your ears will open up to a myriad of tunes ranging from the atmospheric Giant Step cave to the delightful Twoson theme.
The game difficulty is great for the game's wide audience (adults, kids, and even young women) and it's also packed with humor and pop culture references (yellow submarine, anyone?).
There's a good reason EarthBound is a cult classic. It's a solid game with fun music, graphics, and gameplay that rivals other Nintendo greats, like Mario. If you don't want to pay the ridiculous prices that EarthBound carts tend to be and if you're OK with playing Japanese language games, then I'll suggest this: Go to eBay and buy a Super Famicom copy of Mother 2 or go to PlayAsia and import Mother 1+2 for the Game Boy Advance. You'll get a much better price.
It is everything I remember and hoped for. From it's humor to it's story to it's combat system, I would put this not just as one of my all time favorite RPGs, but one of my all-time favorite games.
