 We love Virtual Console but man fuck writing a full review of something we just paid six dollars for. Have a Quick Hit instead.

It seems I'm one of only a few who actually prefers Secret of Evermore over Secret of Mana. To me, SoM always just seemed overly long and very padded out (almost every boss and enemy sprite gets recycled and palette swapped at least once), plus the buggy partner AI didn't do it any favors either, with you constantly having to unstick characters who get hung up on corners and resurrect them after they get killed running into the same enemy attack over and over again. Still, SoM does have one advantage that SoE does not - a multiplayer option for up to three players. If you can get a three player game going, it's a pretty damn good time. Otherwise, well, if you don't mind a lot of padding and having to babysit two idiotic AI partners, you can get some fun out of this one.

Good lord, the AI in this game was awful. Characters getting stuck on trees and walls was a pain in the ass and really slowed things down. The multiplayer bit was awesome, though, and now that it's on VC you don't have to go out and buy a multi-tap to use it. Hooray! The music was really damned good, too. SoM is a decent game, but it's not what some people make it out to be. I think I'd be playing more Evermore than this, too.
