Product Description

Product Description

Join unforgettable characters, which wield an unbelievable variety of weapons and armor.

From the Manufacturer

Long, long ago there was a goddess. She cherished all life and transformed herself into a Mana Tree to watch over the world. Thus the legend began.

As time passed, memory of the goddess faded from people's hearts… One day, a man crept into the sanctuary where the Mana Tree slumbered.

With the power of Mana, he built a great civilization. But this marked the dawn of a terrible age of darkness…

The man forced the world to kneel to his will. His name was Vandole.

When souls were trapped in the darkness of despair, a glimmer of hope shone in the hearts of a few brave youths. The fighting was fierce, but they would not give up. One wielded a holy blade that gleamed as brightly as the hope in their hearts.

Powerless before this light, the darkness was vanquished. The power of Mana was reclaimed from human hands and restored to its rightful place.

But now… The people have forgotten the goddess once again…

4.0 out of 5 stars Customizeability! May 31, 2004
I've played this game quite a bit, almost to the finish, and while it does indeed have some shortcomings, its appealing qualities might, depending on your gaming tastes, more than make up for it.
If you like being able to customize your character in an RPG video game, you'll love the way the class system works. there are eight different classes, each offering it's own special bonuses and you place each level's worth of experience into whichever class you like. it takes five levels in any particular category to be considered a member of that class, and there are combinations that unlock hidden classes offering additional bonuses (a blend of Thief, Mage, and Random gets you to Ninja Master, for example).
The weapons system is also the finest i've seen in any handheld RPG, as, rather than merely finding or buying the latest upgrades to suit your level, you have found weapons (mace, knucks, staff, sword, axe, sickle, bow, flail, and spear) that may be reforged with new, different materials to create more powerful weapons. They may also be "tempered," using a combination of the same material the weapon was last forged from and a vegetable (grown from the seeds you find out adventuring) to enhance their stats and imbue them with magical qualities such as Petrify (whee! Fossil Knucks!) or Confusion. Armor works the same way, but is tempered with fruits instead of vegetables.
The magic system is what you'd expect from a Mana title - you summon elemental spirits (yes, plural, as you can have up to two of each type of spirit) to cast an offensive or defensive effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure fit for Marines. June 1, 2004
As someone deployed in Iraq in an area where the action has pretty much died down, one seeks a way to pretty much kill the time. That's where the Gameboy comes in. Normally games don't really catch the attention span of a Marine long enough but after beating the game I have to fight to get it back from everyone else.
Now the game. As with the Mana series, it beats the walk around and fight turn based style by far. Yiu actually have to try and time your attacks on the enemies(especially bosses) which adds a good level of challenge. The character building is also a plus as you can put points into eventually changing classes that provide you with better abilities. Best of all in my opinion is the storyline. As you progress, many things unfold which make your character think and even question what he's doing all along. Much better than the standard go here and defeat whomever(a-la Zelda style)
My unit has just 2 complaints.The character building. It is difficult to discern what you'll turn into. The most I've gotten was going Fighter-Knight-Warlord. That I did with some guessing. I suggest going online for a guide if you wish to end up like lets say a Paladin or something.
The other one is the improvement of weapons. The "temper" system where you get a certain fruit or a vegetable and have it added to your weapon. It's benefits weren't real significant, adding only +1 to attack or such. What's the point of just a +1? And fruit? Last time I tried that, I got yelled at by the armorer for trying to add a banana to an M16. Damn game, putting ideas in my head. Anyway, this game is still a great, great must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent adventure title for the GBA or DS. April 22, 2005
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember how great Final Fantasy Adventure was, which was really part 1 of the mana saga, and how wonderful the Secret of Mana was for the Super Nintendo.

Now comes Sword of Mana, which is the 4th in the series, and its magic doesnt hold up to the older games.

The gameplay of sword play and magic is standard fare and does nothing to dazzle you. Same goes for the story which is a rehash of Final Fantasy Adventure. The game is fun but nothing memorable which is a departure from Square games which usually leave a dramatic lasting effect.

The main problem with this game is that a strategy guide is almost mandatory for all the items, spells, seeds, fruits, vegetables, etc. The crafting, forging, level up classes, and stats are all way too complicated for what they are.

It seems that Square thought we were all stat obsessed and item hunters/gatherers with this game.

All in all its a fun and short adventure but nothing that will go down as a classic like Secret of Mana or the Legend of Zelda games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game! January 2, 2004
By Mike
Just completed this game, and I must say that I enjoyed it immensely. I remember playing Final Fantasy Adventure on the original gameboy, and Sword of Mana is definetly a worthy remake. Other reviewers have mentioned graphical glitches or slowdowns in gameplay, none of which I experienced. The gameplay was smooth throughout the course of the game. A great game in all categories, and one of the best I've played in recent history (Sword of Mana becomes much more enjoyable if you stop trying to compare it to Secret of Mana. They're different games for different systems!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Fun to Play July 16, 2004
Those of you who played Legend of Mana on the original PlayStation may experience some deja vu here and there as you go through Sword of Mana. The ring configuration of the menus is pretty much the same, and after some practice you can zip right through those. The manner of fighting is also similar, with your partner following you around and able to fight independently. The storyline is interesting and I'm continually amazed by the quality of the graphics on the GameBoy SP. This game will definitely help you pass the time, but there are frequent save points if you can't play for hours at a time. Buy this game, I don't think you'll be disappointed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Glitch.
This game would be better if I didn't have to do one giant run-through of the game in order to beat it; the glitch of the game is that the save feature doesn't work.
