Ten years before the game begins, a great cataclysm struck, and the land of Illusia was besieged by monsters. Now, the Mana Tree has been corrupted by her own power, and mysterious pillars of Mana energy have appeared throughout the land. Each of these pillars has corrupted the power of the guardian spirits in those lands. With the help of the Sword of Mana, the player must free each of these guardian spirits from the corrupting magic and help restore order the Mana Tree and the land of Illusia itself.

In the center of the world, the Mana Tree grows, sheltering everyone under its strong limbs. Its magic protects the world, but that power has grown too strong and has begun to surge across the land, corrupting all that it touches. Now, a handful of young heroes must band together to restore the magic of the Mana Tree and save Illusia.
  • To arms! Take up sword, flail, hammer and bow, and strike back at the evil that corrupts the heart of Mana.
  • Unlock the power of the gems. Players pick from more than 180 magic gems to customize their characters with new abilities that suit their playing styles and to prepare for intense, fast-paced battles.
  • Play the adventure solo or with friends in four-player local wireless games. Players take on the most difficult challenges, fight formidable foes and even fight one another for loot.

 Couldn't put Children of Mana down!

After all the role playing game, this one on DS is brilliant. You can play at your own pace but still advance in the game. With the ability to buy and find new equipment along the way, this makes the game more interesting. Choose from different characters to decide what type of person you would like to be. You can also complete side quests as well as story quests. Has to be played!!!

 Good RPG to start with

If you arent familiar with RPGs, I think this is a good game on the DS to start of with. Lots of cute characters, lost of fighting and buying equipment. There are side quests with each place that you visit and it is not a turn based RPG, it is more immediate like that of Zelda.
The reason for only giving it 4 stars as that with some of the side quests can get a bit repetitive at times.

Children of Mana offers the player an exciting story that unfolds as you complete each story quest. The story being neither boring or slow will eventually lead you to be able to unlock more upgrades, more area's and more quests.

In order to ensure that your character is strong enough for the next part of the story the player can access side quests from both quest npcs to special npc requests in order to obtain new items. The side stories access to areas is determined by your progress in the story.

As for controls the game is very simple and easy to use for both experiened gamers and 'newbies'. If you are ever unsure on how to use your weapon then an NPC can provide you access to training grounds where you can practice how to use each weapon type.

If you a looking for a nice RPG for your handheld then children of mana wins hands down. Admittedly the graphics do fail to compare with the likes of final fantasy 3 however Mana's graphics seem to be somewhat unique to the DS in terms of style. Whilst they are not the strongest graphics on the DS to the graphics do provide a nice feel to the game and serve as a means in which to capture the imagination of any player.

For those of you who don't like dungeon based games then mana isn't really for you as the gaming world on it is split into dungeons (levels) and as a result some of the scenery after some time playing can seem a little less captivating than the first time you see the graphics.

One disappointment I did have with the game is the fact that is fails to utilize the DS pen to its full potential as the pen appears to only be of use in the menu screens.

Personally I'll give it 4/5 due to its simple interfaces and fascinating story. I'd give it 5/5 if they had managed to use the DS stylus in more imaginative ways!
