It's odd to get an Angry Video Game Nerd review of Earthbound but after watching it i'm glad he made this. It's not too far into the review where he does admit that this might be one of the best Super Nintendo games of all time. I also like that he critiques some of Earthbound's lesser features such as not being able to buy multiple items and the amount you are punished for dying. The death punishment can be circumvented with a SNES Classic save state but if you are playing it the way the original creators intended you can spend 30 minutes backtracking to bring your party back.

It's a great review of Earthbound but my only warning is that if you haven't played the game and plan on it at some point his review contains a lot of spoilers.

I wish I could get into this game, it sounds like such a fun trip. But, I just can't get past the beginning story. Maybe because it's set it modern time, but the "You're the chosen one" story just really fell flat to me.

But, after watching this video, I'm glad I got to see at least some of the trip!

Lol, I'm just going to have to force myself at some point.
