A while back I stumbled upon the old Famitsu review of MOTHER 1. The game scored a 31/40 at the time – in comparison, MOTHER 2 scored a 34/40 and MOTHER 3 scored a 35/40. Here’s a look at the review for MOTHER 1: And here’s a quick translation of the reviewers’ comments about MOTHER 1: I’m sure there are many things you could criticize, from the game’s balance...Read More »
