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.
Summary: I loved the first Mana title for SNES, but this one is not as fun. I know it's hard to make games for the GBA, but they could have done better. I think if the screen were brighter, it would improve the game a lot. Fun, but hard to see, especially when the scenery goes to night time.
Summary: I was looking forward to this game, since I am a huge fan of the original game "Final Fantasy Adventure". While the graphics are greatly improved, I did not like the changes they made to the storyline, including leaving out some memorable characters.
Summary: Sword of Mana is a great game but has some bad parts too. Most of them are in the playable girl's story. Some are in the playablen guy's game too. Player Select system alot like the one for picking your charictor in Legend of Mana.
