The vintage review series continues! It's pretty much fun for me to get through the old reviews and add some thoughts to them.
I know that they have some juvenile slang to them sometimes, but you have to realize that they've been written by RPG fans in their late teens, and I don't want to change that so that you can really feel the early 2000s vibe!
Today, I added a review about Final Fantasy VII.
2001 was an interesting time for this site. I expanded the RPG-O-Mania website to create a project together with two other great guys. The new website was calles RPG WorldWide back then. After that, in September 2001, the website was renamed to be RPG Xanadu after another great friend from the USA took over the project. There were some exclusive reviews online back then, which I also lost in the famous hard disk crash of 2001.
However, I was able to dig up more of those reviews, and since it fits the events in the gaming industry nowadays, I thought I start with releasing the old Trials of Mana review. Of course, the game of this review was called "Seiken Densetsu 3" back then.
Additional news: If you ever wondered what the translation changes from the unofficial Seiken Densetsu 3 to Trials of Mana are, the Internet got you covered: Check out this Google Document! Thanks to the guys from r/secretofmana!
This website covers videogames, namely, console role playing games, with the likes of Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, Grandia, and so on. Once in the past, there were many pages online such as these, but not many have survived.
rpg-o-mania is designed to give you interesting stuff to read and watch. Articles, reviews, background information as well as some webmasters' rant as well. This page is divided into in-depth-information ("Coverage"), Reviews and ratings ("Spotlight") and some Media, self-made wallpapers, artwork and even some music.
If you know the page from days yonder, you might notice that some stuff is gone. I removed everything that could be problematic in terms of copyright, so that you, the reader, can enjoy the page while I do not have to worry about any copyright infringement.
