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.
Conclusion: The Nintendo DS has a lot of games, like I’ve said before, and Children of Mana might be one of those games you don’t know about. Square Enix is known for the Final Fantasy series, everything else they tend to release just seems to be filler, minus any of the Dragon Quest games too. The Mana series use to be well known, but after numerous failures nobody is willing to try any of these games.
Excerpt: De fleste computerrollespillere kender med sikkerhed SquareEnix – om ikke for andet, så for deres fantastiske Final Fantasy-serie. Men det er langt fra den eneste serie af rollespil, som Square har stået bag. En anden af serierne er Seiken Densetsu, eller “Mana”-serien, der nu gør debut på Nintendo DS i Europa.
