Here we have a great 2 for 1 deal any budding Government official could not turn down with Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space. The package includes Citizens of Earth and Citizens of Space. With a touch of a button, we can change from one game to the other (the games tie in so go with it).

Citizens of Earth

You take on the newly elected Vice President of the world, how has just returned home after a long election. He is tasked to save the World and drink coffee.

Citizens of Space

Here we play as the Ambasador of Earth. Who has to well find Earth after it has vanished? Unite the Citizens to help you save Earth.

citizens-unite-earth

Both of the games in Citizens Unite! play fairly similar with a few differences along the way. Both games will have you recruiting party members and battling all manner of creatures. In an over the top world and narrative. That is funny and has WAY too many parodies to mention and take a dig at most things people do nowadays days.

Besides the story and setting, the major difference of note is the battle systems, Each simple to use and enjoyable

Citizens of Earth

Battles here take on a resemblance of the Earth Bound series where it shows both your party and the enemy’s party as if it was a dungeon Crawler. With a description of each action in the top of the screen.

Citizens of Space

Here the battle system feels more like a modern day RPG with the mini games added to attacks. With your party on the left and the enemy’s on the right.

I feel the battle system of Earth to be more enjoyable. I am not the biggest fan of mini games for attacks. It makes the game more interactive and less repetitive. But there are just too many of them.

Citizens Unite! Bosts a massive cast of characters to join the adventures from simple mail man to a robot dinosaur. With each character having their own attacks and their own uses outside of the battle to interact with the world. Add in extra content and side missions, there is a lot to do in this 2 for 1.

Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space will be one of the RPGs that will for the most part fly under the radar. PEOPLE GO OUT AND PLAT IT!!!! This is a massive shame the games are both excellent and enjoyable.

With a great cast and some entertaining writing, Citizens Unite!: Earth x Space is a must buy.

8-10
GREAT
