Legend of Mana review

Review date unknown

James Gordon says: "I guess the problem is that a lot of the time, it's hard (very hard in some parts) to navigate through dungeons and towns, because it's hard to tell what's what. I'm used to games where the environment is 3D, and you can rotate the camera angle to see things more clearly...None of that here!"

Legend of Mana review

Review date unknown

Jason Venter says: "Your reward is a new item to place on the map. You’re almost scared to use it by now. Is it going to be another stupid town? Is the game going to ask you to stare at a sunset while birds twitter in the background? Not quite. When you enter the new destination, you’ll find you’ve stepped inside a cave. Limestone walls paint the foreground, while silhouettes of stalactites scroll behind you. A few steps in, monsters suddenly pop into view, and just like that you got the fight you’ve been craving for the last ten minutes."

djskittles says: "People are always complaining about the lack of originality in videogames. Playing what is essentially the same game over and over again seems almost impossible to avoid considering how few unique titles there truly are. Legend of Mana takes some stabs at originality, but the original features are what makes this game far less enjoyable than it’s predecessor, Secret of Mana. Who says creativity is always a good thing? "

sgreenwell says: "Non-linear gameplay is an odd subject. Games such as Final Fantasy X are routinely villainified for their adherence to linear gameplay. The masses shout, “Give us freedom!” Yet games which do feature non-linear gameplay do not sell as many copies, the genre of MMRPGs excluded. "
