A hidden masterpiece that should not be missed by those who miss the taste of classic J-RPGs.

I'm always happy when I hear that remakes or remasters of JRPGs will be released, and Legend of Mana was no exception. After the well-done Trails of Mana, I was in enormous anticipation, but unfortunately it was not satisfied. Legend of Mana is a role-playing game that was innovative in the area of presentation and storytelling 20 years ago. But today it can't keep up these aspects. Is it on the one hand because the style mix of new backgrounds and old sprites really harmonize in my opinion, on the other hand also because of the weak protagonist. With this character, I never felt as if he had a purpose or development in the game. What saves the story, however, are the wonderful supporting characters. The charming characters, were able to keep me glued to the game even over a long period of time. It should also be noted that although the main plot is missing, the short stories were convincing. For gamers who don't have much time to follow a long story, this aspect is convincing. Exciting stories can be experienced again and again in small bites. All in all, you have to have a love for old JRPGs and innovative ideas to like Legend of Mana. But if you get involved, you'll experience a smorgasbord of different stories and loving characters in a good forty hours.

Legend of Mana isn’t just as good as the previous Mana games. It’s better. In fact, it’s not just one of the best JRPGs from the Playstation era, it’s one of the best I’ve ever played. And nobody told me, so I’m here to tell you.

WORTH CONSIDERING - Legend of Mana is a confusing and, at times, clunky mess of a game that is carried by its beautiful visuals and a stellar soundtrack.

Legend of Mana returns twenty years after its initial release, without much having really changed for those who had the chance to try it at the time We have a game still as beautiful now adapted to current standards, an immediate grip and beautiful music. In addition, this is the first time it has been released in Europe. Too bad, however, that the absence of a real scenario is felt, as well as some features that today smell of dust.

Legend of Mana is a game with wasted potential. For the old-school gamers it could be awesome, but newcomers to the series may not enjoy the experience as much.

There is no question that players would welcome a gameplay experience more refined by better system upgrades to explore this wondrous world, but Legend of Mana remains enjoyable despite this. If you’re patient with the murky controls, can get lost in the mystifying crafting and pet-rearing systems, and embrace the enchanting world and cast, Legend of Mana will leave a lasting impression from a game that plays like little else.

Legend of Mana is a thoroughly enjoyable RPG that has stood the test of time, but a lack of direction might make it rough for genre newbies. I’ve admitted myself that I had to use a walkthrough to get the most out of the game – I’m not sure I would have enjoyed it quite as much if I didn’t. I did though, and it really allowed me to appreciate the intricacy of the world, all of the little zany quests it has to offer, and the enjoyable action-orientated combat mechanics. Legend of Mana does something different with its old-school RPG offering, but it comes together to make for a good time. Just don’t be afraid to look for a walkthrough online when you’re playing.
