Does Earthbound WiiU VC hold up today?

#1Y SPosted 7/14/2014 12:41:14 PM(edited)
Does this game on WiiU VC still hold up today, graphically, story, music, presentation? For example Super Mario World or Final Fantasy Tactics have an art style, gameplay and music that looks just fine today where as a games like Legend Of Dragoon or Fighting Force look very pixelated and bad.

So does Earthbound still look and play good today or is it a bad 20min nostalgia trip?

This. Its still a great game and has features that I feel are missing from some current games that are similar (for example killing a mob without a battle if you are high enough level)

Yeah I've been playing it lately. It's still incredibly charming plus I really love the look of the game. I love the humorous take of "Podunk, USA."

It reminds me of Secret of Evermore in that respect (hope that one gets a VC release one day).

The villagers called him 'God's Savior' and his weapon they called 'Vampire Killer.'
Ah, Gandolfi, how that would make you smile.
