Summary: i got this game in hopes that it would be as good as legend of mana it failed. this game sucked i felt like i was playing a game for kids im actually about to trade it in to gamestop soon. don' pay any more than five bucks for this game.
Summary: I was going to go on a long tirade, explain in detail the things I liked, and didn't like about this game. I have realized, however, that is a waste of time. The first thing you will notice about this game is that the imagery is lovely, and the music is pretty nice as well. It has some very high quality animated cutscenes. That is about as deep as it goes. Everything else about the game completely sucks. The story make Star Wars seem like Alexander Dumas.
Summary: I was looking forward to this game, but I was bored within a couple of hours. It is VERY repetitive - all you do is hack and slash your way through dungeons. The story is very vague, and the characters have no depth. I'm selling it. Save your money.
Excerpt: Children of Mana is the sequel to another mana title, I believe it was secret of mana on the snes. Sorry if I'm wrong here, from what I understand secret of mana was an rpg, the first thing I'd like to get straight is this isn't an rpg.
Summary: To be honest I found this game so boring I can't even be bothered to write a full on review, but having read all the other reviews I feel it's only fair that people are given another opinion. Yes the graphics are cute and quite good but that's it. There is no real story so to speak and the dungeons are so repetitive and boring that I was desperately wishing the game would end - something I have never done before.
