If you can play this game, PLAY IT. If you can't, get an emulator and PLAY IT.

SPOILERINOS!!!


To start, let me just say that Porky/Pokey (even though this specific game calls him Pokey, that was just a translation error) is my favorite villain ever. Porky from BOTH EarthBound and Mother 3. It's hard to put into words, but I made a big character analysis of him in a Discord server. If you want to see it, just let me know.

And then... what on earth even was that final boss?! Giygas kept saying things like ''friends'' and ''Ness'' and ''I'm happy'' and I almost didn't want to keep praying. Oh, and speaking of that, when all hope seemed lost, and then all of a sudden, the PLAYER starts praying... that almost made me cry.

For some reason, I kept hearing from people that the dungeons in this game were absurdly long and took forever, and that the bosses were really hard... My experience couldn't have been further from that. The dungeons were really short, and the bosses were pathetic. The hardest boss was the Carbon/Diamond Dog. But the hardest part of the whole game was the beginning, honestly. Franky and Titanic Ant were pretty tough.

Another thing I really liked was the Mani Mani statue. You see it corrupt that guy in his basement at the very beginning of the game, and then it's the source of the Happy Happy Cult, and then it seems to be the source of Moonside. You see it a few more times throughout the game, but then, it's in Magicant. It's the source of any and all evil is Ness' heart. But he's the only one who's been ''tempted'' by its power and not gotten corrupted by it, I guess to say that he's stronger than the others who had it.


So that's pretty much all I have to say. I definitely like Mother 3 more, but EarthBound was also a masterpiece and you should play it!
Oh, and also the inventory was absolutely horrible. I don't think they actually playtested this game because no sane human being would think that this inventory was okay.
