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.
