Yeah, your review is pretty fair.

I don't know that I'm totally on-board with the game being an NES throwback, but don't think it's fair to criticize something for not being something else. Some of these reviewers are kind of all over the place too - like, they all loved Undertale even though it plays like an anachronism and looks like it was fired out of Pac-Man's butt.
