  1. One of the more refreshing RPG releases to hit the DS system and a game that no RPG fan will want to miss out on.
  2. "Nostalgia" is a title that takes all that was once good and lovable about the genre and reinvigorates it into a brand new adventure that is set in the real world instead of one of pure fantasy. It doesn't bring much new to the table, but takes what has worked well in the past and puts it to good use.
  3. Playing Nostalgia is a joy, plain and simple, in a way that too few RPGs are anymore. It’s a game that can make you feel like a fresh-faced kid, stepping out into a world of excitement and adventure for the first time – and let me tell you, it’s a good feeling.
