HalfBeard's HUD Review of Citizens of Earth

Citizens of Earth is a game that is very directly inspired by and trying to emulate the SNES classic Earthbound, but unfortunately it just doesn’t seem to understand what made Nintendo’s bizarre RPG opus so good. It gets everything right on the surface, featuring a ‘Hometown USA’ style setting, simple turn-based combat, battlegrounds composed of psychedelic nonsense, and lots of jokes and satire (though that aspect is sadly rather poorly executed). But unfortunately it forgets that underneath those ultimately superficial aspects, Earthbound had a subtly dark story and a genuinely interesting cast of characters that drove the player forward.

The story is too old to be commented.
