Trials of Mana [game]

Trials of Mana [game]

THIS GAME IS SO ODD. IT'S THIS LONG LOST SNES GAME THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE TECHNICAL SHOWCASE OF WHAT THE SNES CAN DO WHILE ALSO BEING SORT OF JUST OKAY AS A GAME. LIKE IT WAS *THE* BIG FAN TRANSLATION GAME BECAUSE IT NEVER CAME OUT IN THE US AND IT'S PUSHING THE SNES RIGHT TO THE LIMITS TECHNICALLY BUT LIKE, IT'S KINDA LIKE, A PAPER THIN STORY AND A CLASS MECHANIC THAT IS GREAT BUT DOESN'T OPEN LIKE 2/3RDS OF THE CLASSES UNTIL THE LAST AREA AND ALL THE CHARACTERS HAVE REALLY STUPID NAMES AND A BUNCH OF VISUALLY IMPRESSIVE SPELLS THAT TAKE FOR-EVER TO WATCH CAST. BUT IT'S STILL A NEAT GAME AND IT STILL BLOWS MY MIND THAT AFTER THIS LONG SQUARE JUST SORT OF RELEASED IT UNANNOUNCED WITH NO FANFARE.

PS. I PLAYED THIS SEVERAL TIMES EMULATED, FIRST UNTRANSLATED AND THEN TWICE WITH THE FAN PATCH. I WAS 15 AT THE TIME. I NEVER CREATED A PARTY THAT DID NOT HAVE LIGHT SIDE ANGELLA IN IT. THE REASON: HER SPECIAL ATTACK IS HER PULLING UP HER SKIRT AND SHOWING SHE'S NOT WEARING UNDERPANTS THEN HEARTS COMING OUT. THAT IS WHAT BEING 15 MEANS PRE-INTERNET. NEEDING TO LOOK AT LIKE 5 PIXELS OF A VIDEOGAME LADY'S BUTT.
