Excerpt: “Sword of Mana.” The name itself seems almost oxymoronic as most RPGers would consider mana and swords to be two completely different ideas in separate spheres of influence. Rarely does one see a mage form a sword out of mana and start hacking away. The idea seems somewhat silly and unfortunately the game does not get much better than its title.
Excerpt: Sword of Mana was hyped up as the impressive remake of the gameboy RPG known as Final Fantasy Adventure . Impressive it is not. There are just far too many problems that hold this game from being any of the things it tried: being a remake of Final Fantasy Adventure , or to be a worthy chapter in the Mana series. The gameplay in Sword of Mana fails to impress. It is a very basic hack and slash game, reminiscent of the Diablo series, except it’s far more clunky.
