Yo! You beat SMT 4, I have a question since I got lost in the game
Heya Spemanig, I just finished Earthbound! I really enjoyed it and it's one of the best games I've played yet. : ) What did you think of it? Also, I'm starting Mother 3 already. Gotta get ready for Mother 4 ; )
To be pithy, I thought Earthbound was extremely flawed, but one of the most magical gaming experiences I've ever had. I think a lot of unrecognized credit goes out to the English localization team, because they honestly made the game what it is. The final boss is unforgettable and collecting all the pieces of the melody feels like something out of a fairy tale. The hole world is uncanny and creepy and not quite right and is feels like you are stuck in the dreams and nightmares of a child, which is both scary, and beautiful. The music just adds to that atmosphere, and it is all put together so well.
The grinding is aggravating, and early on the limited access to items that revive your PSI is aggravating. The fact that the plot is loose and that there are no real characters with emotion and development also kind of stinks in a game like this, but in retrospect, maybe that decision was for the best.
Overall great game. Not a masterpiece, but great.
But this game can be outright brutal and cheap. I'd either get swarmed at times, the flash attack taking out my characters randomly, or all my characters getting daimondized... The beginning was especially grueling losing so many times. At times, the game is poor at giving the player direction as to where to go next... I had to use to pay the hint guy to get a clue. And I found Poo's entrance to be the most poor and odd introduction to the team. He sort of abruptly shows up... That was handled rather poorly....
And yet, I can look past that. The rest of the game was so great. : ) Oh, can I also say that part in Ness's sub conscience was horribly aggregating. I died a couple of times, and redoing it was terrible....
The final boss was easy and there wasn't any overly complicated boss in the game. There is ONE boss that is very difficult but there is an item that you can use to make the fight a breeze so we can count that one out.
The one thing I would criticize about the game is that the battle system was too simple. There are only a couple of useful PSI spells to use and there is one character who uses items to attack, it sounded like a cheap way to introduce a new "mechanic" without introducing nothing new.
Paula,Ness and Poo play more or less in the same way... they all use PSI energy. Jeff just uses consumable items which is nothing new. It's like the throwable items in the Final Fantasy games, only it's specific to one character.
I don't think they played the same at all. Ness was much better with his main attack while Paula was the PSI attacker. They all had different psi moves too.
Poo was useless if we are being honest. There was a certain PSI energy he had that was useful but I forgot it's name! But that's the only good thing he had, also he could only equip a certain type of armor... what kind of bullshit is that!?!
Ness was much more of a medic than anything else, and his physical attacks hit harder than his PSI most of the time as non of hit moves could hit an opponent's weakness. Paula was the real attacker, with all of her attacks able to "super effectively" hit something. She was also the only one who could use PSI shields, buffs, and debuffs.
Poo only needed one suit of armor. He was a late game ally, and there was no need to decorate him with all these different sets. The only annoying thing was getting his sword.
Interestingly, I got Poo`s sword without even knowing the requirement to get it. I guess I got lucky...
