Summary: It's great to see my favorite company re-making older games and updating the series. This re-make (orig Final Fantasy Adventure for GB) is just as good as it's successor, secret of mana for the snes. If you enjoyed secret of mana, you'll love sword of mana.
Summary: the game is good and has some interesting new feats that the original does not have. however, they really watered down the strength of the storyline by changing some character roles and adding new (and somewhat useless) characters. i think it's interesting to play from the perspective of the female character, and the fighting style is certainly interesting. pretty good for a remake, but definitely does not hold a candle to the original.
Excerpt: After Secret of Mana , the Seiken Densetsu (or just Mana) series went into something of a slump, with Legend of Mana in particular evoking mixed reaction from the gaming world, receiving praise for its gorgeous music and graphics but damnation for its simplistic gameplay and story.
