"The RTS/RPG hybrid was a somewhat innovative genre to throw onto the Nintendo DS. LostMagic was the first to do it, and other companies have since imitated it. Square Enix did so twice, using different developers. One such game was Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. But before that, there was Brownie Brown's "Heroes of Mana."
Heroes of Mana is, without question, the worst game in the Mana (Seiken Densetsu) series. Why is this? Because, unlike every other game in the series, Heroes of Mana attempts to break into a new genre. And in doing so, it falls flat on its face."
