Game Description & Reviews:
There is one force in the universe that keeps good and evil in perfect balance. It is called the tree of Mana. But a magic sword has tricked a young warrior into upsetting the balance, spreading evil throughout the land. Thus the warrior must undertake a dangerous journey to find the seeds of the Mana tree which has been hidden for centuries. Only then can perfect harmony be restored. In this incredible adventure, things are not as they seem. It's a world turned upside down that you must help the warrior make right. And the only way to succeed is to solve the Secret of Mana.
Secret of Mana is the SNES sequel to the Gameboy game Final Fantasy Adventure. Here, you step into the shoes of a young man who has been chosen by the legendary Sword of Mana - and exiled from his home village for removing it and unleashing monsters. It turns out that the power of Mana, which nearly destroyed civilization ages ago, is threatening to be unleashed again. Naturally, it's up to you to bring an end to it. Along the way, you meet a young girl and a fairy sprite who join your cause.
You adventure through the world, collecting and upgrading weapons, learning magic, fighting tons of bad guys in real time, all while trying to figure out why these things are happening. The combat is a lot of fun - it's one of those games you won't want to skip enemies in since they're fun to fight. The bosses are challenging, and the weapons upgrading system is rewarding. You get several different kinds to play with, including the classic sword and a few odd things like a boomerang and whip.
It's a wonderful game, and exemplifies the kind of gold that existed on the Super Nintendo. If you somehow haven't played this game, give it a try!
Secret of Mana is a great action RPG. You start off as a young boy who gets banned from his village. Secret of Mana is a real time RPG. You can move around the map, but enemies can attack you at anytime. You fight enemies to gain experience and level up. The ring system is also a unique system, a system where you select your weapons and items. Graphically Secret of Mana is great looking, the soundtrack is also amazing. If you're RPG fan, you've got to play Secret of Mana.
Secret of Mana is another amazing game made by Squaresoft and one of the only RPG's that's a 2 player!
The gameplay is similar to that of Zelda - in the way that all the monsters are live. Meaning as you walk through the dungeons there are monsters prowling about and you must physically fight them using different weapons such as a sword, spear, bow and arrow, etc. right there. There is no battle menu or the like. You do have an hp meter, though. Personally I prefer this sort of combat, for I feel it is more of a challenge of skills versus the Final Fantasy style combat where it only is a matter of strategizing to get through a fight.
The storyline was pretty good. The game really didn't focus on that aspect much, but on surface it wasn't bad. The main focus really is the gameplay and dungeons, there's really not much to the storyline of Secret of Mana or its characters.
I'm a Final Fantasy fan, and this game was a wonderful addition to my collection. Try it, you're bound to love it!
