With Secret of Mana being grouped up by so many gamers as their favorite game of all time, it was important for Square Enix to deliver as close to that same experience for a new generation, and they did just that. Some features might not have aged well or should have been added in for good measure, but this release of Secret of Mana is the same adventure that I remember, and I couldn’t have asked for more.
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.
Honestly what would have been ideal is if it was left in the original state and given a 2D sprite makeover in the style of Final Fantasy IV for the PSP and maybe added some minor updates like shops containing item descriptions, but even with the complaints that can be made about this remake, it’s still Secret of Mana. Almost every JRPG fan will enjoy this remake, though a better Secret of Mana experience can be found on Super Nintendo.
