"Earthbound may be a niche game, but most folks who have played it have strong memories of it. It might be the almost-dreamlike mix of modern-day America, the over-the-top cartoonish characters, the tremendous sense of scale, or the catchy music. While one can try to copy the gameplay mechanics, it's difficult to replicate Earthbound's heart. Citizens of Earth was clearly inspired by Nintendo's cult classic, but Citizens tries to capture the ridiculous, over-the-top spirit of the original game. It's not perfect, but Citizens of Earth is a solid attempt at creating a game that's as funny and enjoyable as Earthbound."
