    But for the right sensibilities, Citizens of Earth is a great RPG at a budget price, and a rare bright spot in a season usually barren of any decent releases.

    Citizens of Earth might not be an RPG that transcends through generations like the classics that defined the genre, but it definitely has interesting elements that make us recommend it to the fans. In spite of the few technical mistakes and the level design flaws, the contents end up being a nice experiment.

    Better jokes, a stronger art style, a better battle system and a recruitment process that fells more involving would move this game from simply mediocre to a whole lot of fun. Though, that’s sort of a laundry list of problems to overcome.

    A competent game with a few too many flaws to make it a must have.

    Citizens of Earth is a game that spends too much time trying to feed on people's notalgia then trying to be unique or fresh. An old combat system is reborn, but then instantly gets old again. It also offers far too much in the way of side quests that the games main quest, which never seems to pick up anyway, even more forgettable.

    If a landslide of repetitive battles with cluttered combat is your thing, then this game fits the bill. At least you'll never be at a loss for laughs.

    As the Vice President, I would never, I mean NEVER, not even for a moment consider physically oppressing peoples right to protest !!

    I would get other people to do that for me of course.

    10/10 For Accurate Earth Politics

    Don't really understand why it's getting so much hate. It's a perfectly serviceable game. It's like Earthbound mixed with Suikoden 2 mixedDon't really understand why it's getting so much hate. It's a perfectly serviceable game. It's like Earthbound mixed with Suikoden 2 mixed with The Stick of Truth. Let's get the bad part out of the way, you enter a building, loading screen, you walk upstairs, loading screen, you walk back downstairs, loading screen, then you walk outside, long loading screen. That's the only flaw I can find so far. The graphics are charming and pretty, it runs silky smooth, looks beautiful. The story is neat, it's fun, there appears to be full voice acting and a considerable amount of content. A ridiculous amount of characters to recruit, all of which can be named. You get pieces of donuts from the enemies. The battle system is perfect, the attacks are hilarious. You play as the Vice President of Earth. That alone makes this awesome. He can't even attack, he just gets others to fight his battles for him. And his enemies, are protesters. I've only played about 2 hours so take this with a grain of salt, but so far I have found it to be massively entertaining. People **** and complain about how games are all the same, cheap clones and boring sequels. This game is trying to do something different. And I applaud ATLUS for supporting a weird experiment like this. It's like the Tesla Effect, Only ATLUS would give something like this a chance. I doubt they ever expected to make multiple millions off of it, they just supported it because it was interesting and they're not afraid to take risks. Who knows, maybe it'll become a cult hit or something. Stranger things have happened. They hated Earthbound too. I like it.

    Normally I would give this game an 8, but I'm voting 9 to offset for all the hate.

    (I can't speak for the other versions but the Vita version plays fine. No real problems that I can see so far. The other versions might have better load times, but this is much better suited to a portable console. 3DS might be the sweet spot, but I like the Vita better. It has a nicer screen.)

    NO CROSS BUY.... =(
