IGN: Nostalgia Review

With the exception of the airship fights and the graded battles, Nostalgia does not innovate much beyond genre roots. It covers familiar territory, although IGN recognizes that to some gamers, the 8- and 16-bit RPG formula may be hallowed ground. But with such a fresh setting, it was ultimately disappointing to see Nostalgia rely on such creaky -- but functional -- ideas like random encounters and basic turn-based battles.

Man, whats with this reviewer? Sounds like they got the wrong guy to review a game like this.

"I’m sure a hardcore RPG gamer will love how Nostalgia adheres to the past (I can already see “that’s why they call it Nostalgia, dummy” comments on the horizon),"

no crap. Why would they not have a hardcore rpg gamer review a game thats suppose to be about a shout out to hardcore rpgs in the past then slam it on being to much like hardcore rpgs in the past? Talk about not taking things in context.
