WiredController: "Normally in writing the first sentence has to be unique, thrilling and, most importantly, it needs to make the reader want to read the rest of the article whether it be an essay or a video game review. For this review the title of the game should suffice: Cthulhu Saves the World. While the title is certainly one of the most eye-catching in video game history how does the gameplay hold up? To put it bluntly, Cthulhu Saves the World is absolute bliss. Everything from the music, gameplay, atmosphere and especially the often hilarious writing makes Cthulhu Saves the World one of the best throwbacks to classic RPGs and an absolute steal at such a cheap price."
