Mr. Saturn for Breakfast!
The other day we took a look at ONM’s review of EarthBound on the Wii U Virtual Console. Now let’s take a look at another review from Retro Gamer magazine!
This scan comes courtesy of Sebastian, who also writes:
Retro Gamer magazine reviewed Earthbound around the same time ONM did, so I scanned their review in as well. That Ness sprite in the top corner clearly isn’t from EB, though, so where did they get it from?
I really don’t know, but it seems familiar somehow. Maybe it was on some fan sprite site? Does anyone have any info?
Anyway, the magazine gives EarthBound a 92% score, which sounds like a good rating. It’s so cool to see all these magazines giving the game such high scores!
