Children Of Mana

Strategy Informer
8 January 2008
  • 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.

  • 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. Seiken Densetsu 2 (Secret of Mana) was one of the finest action-RPGs on the SNES system. Too bad the equally wonderful, if not better, Seiken Densetsu 3 was never released in the US; US gamers got Secret of Evermore instead.

  • Excerpt: Not quite. But that's not to say that this isn't a solid game; it is, it just has some design flaws that hold it back from being absolute fun.

Children of Mana (DS)

The Review Busters
30 March 2007
  • 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.

Test : Children of Mana

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Take up sword, flail, bow, and hammer, and strike back at the evil that corrupts the heart of Mana. Ben quoi, je lis le résumé en anglais si je veux ! Bref, tout ça pour dire que la suite du meilleur RPG que j’ai connu arrive enfin, et croyez-moi, ça vaut le coup. Quoi qu’on en dise, ce Mana là arrive à temps, il fait du bien partout là où il passe, ou presque.
  • Pros: Joli, Prenant, Combats réalistes, L'univers
  • Cons: Un seul village, Pas assez approfondi, Plus Action que RPG, Durée de vie moyenne, Finalement trop linéaire
