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. The mana series has been known for inticing gameplay, seemless control of multiple characters, beautiful 2D graphics,and storyline that almost brings a tear to your eye.

Children of Mana

  • 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. No wonder so many weak Christians have turned to new age beliefs. They have been brain washed over and over again by the game developers proselytizing their beliefs.

  • 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.  Alas, that means only those who have nostalgically stayed with the Mana series or those new to the genre will pick it up and retain it – older RPG fans would be better off finding an alternative title, or at least, solely renting this out.

Children of Mana Review

VideoGamer.com
2 November 2007
  • 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. Save for the fact it's played on Nintendo's still relatively new DS (my white one still glints in the right light), everything about Children of Mana is stuck in the past, for better or for worse.

Children of Mana (DS) Review

21 May 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. This isn’t an awful game but there’s so much wrong with it that the faults far out way the good points. Let’s put it this way.
