Children of Mana Review

The Hylia
6 March 2013
  • Excerpt: When I took the job to review Children of Mana my spirits were raised. Not only would it be my first piece for The Hylia, it would be a chance to see how my once beloved Mana series is doing. As a standalone game it's fairly decent.

  • Excerpt: Children of Mana is a wonderful example of what is wrong with the role playing genre in this age. Some of these problems have existed for a long time, but numerous companies have progressed past them. Here is another role playing game that promotes goddess worship.

  • Conclusion: In short, Children of Mana has a retro feel to it – it captures the innocent magic of the Secret of Mana.  Alas, that was over ten years ago!  The game remains simplistic even with a lot of hours of play available.

Children of Mana (DS) Review

23 December 2007
  • Summary: I wanted to like this game. I really did as it looks so good but it’s so very boring and that’s something a Mana game should never be, it’s like the gaming equivalent of celery. You buy it take a bite and immediately wished you had some flavor to go with the blandness.

Children of Mana Review

  • Excerpt: Now, I'm all for a bit of retro charm but sometimes a game can be so old fashioned it brings back painful memories of the past that should be long forgotten - like shell suits and the music of The Proclaimers.

  • Excerpt: The Seiken Densetsu (Mana) series has been a source of joy, as well as disappointment, for many RPG fans. Seiken Densetsu 1 (Final Fantasy Adventure) was a fine handheld action-RPG in the days of the monochrome Game Boy.
