Summary

a Great RPG, uses real time action.

The Good

You have 3 ways to finish this game, depending on who you pick as your lead character. Great Animation and Sound. Many different areas, and different spells you can cast. The class-changing ability varies what you can do with your characters, unlike many games, were you are just one thing, you can do many things with your characters, and make your own team (choose 3 out of 6).

The Bad

lots of bunching up, 3 enemies can gang up on you and you can take your life if you are trapped, also with all the bunching up, it is very hard to see just exactly what is going on. Spell Casting, each spell is cast in the game one on one, if an enemy boss can, it will cast 3 spells in a row back to back, and you cant heal in time, and you die sometimes as a result. Personally I did not like the fact that it was only released in Japan.

The Bottom Line

Anyone that has played Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2) and liked it should definitely play this game for sure. Most of the lead designers, programmers and animators did this game as well. It knocked my socks off how well this game is, and how everything is so well linked together.
