    A lovably old school JRPG that mostly suffers from a rushed story and a broken combat system. Fun for a playthrough but hardly leaving a memorable impression.

    Not a bad game, and not a bad story. It's just that I personally could not get past the graphics. They are horrible compared to most other DS games.

  1. Despite these complaints, Nostalgia is a worthy distraction. [Nov 2009, p.114]
  2. Forgiving the tedious side-quests, aggravating random battles, and cliché cast and storyline, Nostalgia is actually a fairly solid role-playing title. If it weren’t so tragically constrained by its decades-old allegiances, however, it could have been much more than that.

    I'm a big fan of nostalgic "old-school" style RPGs as my catalogue of reviews suggests, but honestly, Nostalgia fell completely flat in almost all areas.
