The redone graphics look good. Two great soundtracks. Fun combat system. The option to play local co-op. Incredibly charming. Engaging characters. The characters' mouths don't move. Some weird menu choices. You often don't have information you need regarding items. Lots of backtracking. No online co-op. Too much accordion on the remixed soundtrack.
You may as well just play the SNES version, even if it's the first time you're ever picking up a Mana game: the original spritework is able to pick up the slack of a few of its inherent shortcomings, which are only exasperated by the swap to 3D. Secret of Mana is a fighter -- it's going to take more than a few flaws to take it down.
If you’ve never played the original version of Secret of Mana, you might enjoy this game. Some of the design decisions will come off as a little strange, but there’s some decent fun buried in there. If you loved the Super NES original, however, this updated version will fill you with confusion, anger and disappointment.
