RPGFan writes: "Nostalgia is a JRPG for the DS with a unique 19th century steampunk setting on an alternate Earth. This type of setting is rarely seen in JRPGs and as such piqued my interest as well as that of other RPG fans. Screenshots evoked thoughts of Wild Arms and the promise of airship battles evoked thoughts of Skies of Arcadia. Unfortunately, Nostalgia does not live up to those beloved classics. The game's unique setting and airship gameplay elements are used superficially at best, making what could have been a dynamic, forward-thinking game just another standard fare JRPG that I found completely unengaging and mediocre at best."
