    This game is one of those games that comes immiedietley to mind when i think of the best years of my rpg gaming life. ^^

    There aren't enough words to describe how great i think this game is. Sure it's old and your basic side scroller but, it's awesome. This game just reminds me of the old times and i think this was the first game i played ... Read Full Review

    Great for the fans...

    Overview: Centuries after Mana's dissapearance, the Mana Goddess returns only to find that society has learned to live without her. Angered by neglect, she has become dark and corrupt. Now she must be destroyed and repla... Read Full Review

    Love this Game. Enough said.

    I started playing this game when I was about 9 years old. I remember I would talk to my friend about certain things in this game. Things such as how to create weapons, make powerful magic, finish missions and a lot more.... Read Full Review

    While I was at my parents' place in New York, I had the opportunity to play my sister's copy of LoM before Christmas. I quickly found myself much more involved in the game than I ever was with its first SNES predecessor,... Read Full Review

    Truely the best RPG game I have ever played for any console. Definitely a must have for any fan of RPGs.

    Truely one of the best and most innovative RPG games ever. The story is interesting in that it is not a typical story line that you follow throughout the game. You get to play out many different stories that come togethe... Read Full Review

    Could be the best PSX game ever.

    Of course, this is my personal opinion, but I've always found Legend of Mana to be the greatest PSX game ever made. There's too many people that blindly believe FF7 is God's gift to man, and haven't even played this. ... Read Full Review

    It's not 'worse', it's 'different'. And it's most certainly fun to play.

    Legend of Mana is a strange combination of a hallucinogenic drug trip and a video game. The battle system leaves something to be desired, as it suffers from severe 'button mashing' syndrome after your characters are powe... Read Full Review

    Forget about the SNES Mana games, Legend of Mana is its own game, and, when you aren't busy comparing it to Secret of Mana or Seiken Densetsu 3, you could probably find a lot to like about the game. Legend of Mana's h... Read Full Review

    In a series of games as good as the Mana games, this one is somewhat of a letdown.

    Since the SNES days, the Mana series has rocked. In my opinion, Seiken Densetsu 3 is one of the greatest RPGs of all time. It had everything: multiplayer support, great storyline/graphics, tons of replay value, etc.... ... Read Full Review

    One of the best titles on the Playstation, if you know what is going on.

    Pros: Beautiful graphics, good soundtrack, very high replayability, tons of sidequest and minigames. Cons: Too non-linear, gamers are often confused in the early stages of the game (easily leading to the demise of the... Read Full Review
