Summary: The SNES had many a 'classic' games with the likes of Street Fighter II, Mario Kart and whatnot, but there were always two that I returned to more than most. Zelda and Secret Of Mana. Both were as about as perfect as could be. So immense joy years later when the SNES Zelda and the superb Minish Cap are present in handheld form on the GBA. What better to complement it than Sword of Mana? Well for one, perhaps porting the SNES Secret of Mana across instead of this effort.
Summary: Not the best RPG i've ever played, it's way too easy, so much so that you are never given an incentive to level up your characters' stats and equipment. For example a boss will go down in about 6 sword hits, I found myself really disappointed at the "challenge". This game is also relatively short compared to any Zelda game. Hindsight being a wonderful thing and all I wouldn't have bought this game but a Square-Enix title is usually a quality purchase.
