IGN: "EarthBound has aged well, and remains one of the most innovative and unique JRPG experiences around."
"Very difficult early areas" Please fire this noob reviewer, although this is IGN.
It's kind of a valid point. Like many games, it's got a screwy difficulty curve--where the game starts out harder than it'll be an hour later. But, yeah, expecting a well-formed opinion from IGN is silly. Most of the time, they don't even manage legitimate reviews.
