When I first saw Mana Chronicles, I jumped at the opportunity to review it. A 2D, hack & slash adventure set in a fantasy world seemed like just the kind of old-school gaming I could sink my teeth into. Unfortunately, before long, I wanted to spit it back out. What went wrong?
Mana Chronicles starts out by introducing you to a few of the key characters you’ll be controlling and interacting with throughout the game in the first of many long dialogue sequences. Fortunately, you can skip over these, but some of them are actually pretty funny. Although, whether they’re supposed to be funny is open to debate, since they tended to be riddled with spelling and grammatical errors.
