Sword of Mana User Reviews
When it comes to RPGs the Gameboy Advance is certainly in no short supply. From your Golden Suns to your Breath of Fires, there is something for all tastes. From this vast sea comes another entry into the genre, a not-so-little game called Sword of Mana.
The overall plot is perhaps a little cliche at this point. The girl is somehow a kind of 'chosen', whose clan was killed by the dark lord guy and spends her life running and hiding until the bad guys effectively catch up to her. The guy is the fighter seeking revenge when his parents get caught in the mess and killed. The pair eventually mee...
Great RPG mechanics.
Some minor set backs stray the title from perfection.
The plot can be confusing.
Sword of Mana is not new. It is a port of an old Super Nintendo game, Final Fantasy Adventure. And what an excellent port it is, in my opinion. The gameboy adaption of FFA adds myriad of new features on to what was already a great game. Fans of the original will enjoy the memories, and newcomers will love the game for what it is: an almost perfect RPG.
The game is told in two halves, one is that of the hero and the other, the heroine. Both of these adventures intersect at many points during the story, with the gender opposite joining your party at intervals. Which ever gender one chooses, th...
this game is a spin off from the legend of mana for playstation.
SOM has a way better story line.
Plenty of villans.
two story lines.
the graphics arent as good as legend of mana.
but that dont matter the story makes up for the graphics in sword of mana.
fighting can get boring but there are some cool monsters.
Welll to say a few words.
this is probaly one of the very best gba games and if you love rpg's this one is a must have.
there have been a lot of attempts on gba to make really good rpgs. a few made it but take lunar legend gba. for example that game totally sucked becuase they tried to copy the ps one version.if they would done it over a little differant it would have been awesome but instead it was a totaly boring experience but atleast with sword of mana you wont get that bored.and the graphics are awesome for a gba.go buy it you wont regret this one if you like rpg's.
this game is so good because has really interesting places and fight the wierdest monsters. Summary:in this game you are a prisoner in the dungeon in granz castle because the dark lord killed your parents. after the battle at the castle you try to escape but fall off the bridge. you have to go through a fantastic world to revenge your evil enemy dark lord.On the way you meet lots of interesting people and a variety of weapons and you can also use magic!The bad:
nothin really bad in this gameSummary:
no comment ecxept: THIS GAME ROCKS THIS GAME ROCKS THIS GAME ROCKS THIS GAME ROCKS THIS GAME ROCKS THIS GAMEROCKS.
-The Puzzles, though easy, were fun.
Overall a pretty good game.
-The dialogue was forced
-The story stopped short at some points
-You had to complete quests in a certain amount of time
-Very few places to make Hot Houses
-Gaeus was changed to Gaia (I miss Gaeus!)
-Too hard to get the Seven Wisdoms Cards
Although there were a few things I didn't like, I feel the good outweighed the bad. Personally, I feel the game was too short, because you could easily beat this game in under 6 hours, which is a very little amount. Although it provided alot of time consuming challanges, the puzzles were often too easy, and the bosses died very fast. The fact that the spirits took so long to use was a downside too.
Overall though, this game was definitely worth buying in my opinion. I recommend this game to anyone looking for a fast GBA RPG to play over a trip or just for fun.
Playstation type graphics, Fun, Challenging puzzles, village missions are good,The bad:
some puzzles are too hard!Summary:
This game is really good. although i have not yet completed it the gameplay so far has been excellent. With fantastic playstation graphics, just like the legend of mana game!! It's great fun to play. The music alone is worth the money. Some people say the game is too short or not enough weapons but i think otherwise. I have been playing 6 months and have found the bosses i have met so far HARD to defeat. A game destined to be as big as pokemon was!! THe game is quite hard to defeat, which i have not done for 6 months after i bought it at x-mas last year!!Really all i can say is this game is...
