"Mention Earthbound in a description of any video game and people (myself included) will go nuts. The classic Super Nintendo RPG pulled the genre from fantasy to reality, with exotic landscapes and destinations replaced by mundane, real-world cities and towns; a world that more resembled ours than it did any fictional location. Believe it or not, this unorthodox approach really resonated with fans and still does to this day. Taking a page from the real-world book, Atlus' new Citizens of Earth has a very Earthbound feel, but doesn't quite reach the lofty ideas put forth in the classic it mimics. Still, there is a good old school RPG here, and the game's humor bridges the gap from forgettable to memorable."
