Secret Of Mana 2 gives you a lot of a good plot, with no excessively difficult mazes. Okay, okay... you get mazes, you get to think of what you should next, but it simply won't stop the pace of the game. Yet, it's a game of patience. Don't expect to beat it in a simple 4 hours straight play... It's long, but but it doesn't get boring. You get to visit all places more than once, so once you learn the ways through out the map, it won't be difficult at all to walk around. In the beginning, you are rather driven to what you should do, but later on you get a lot of freedom and the right to choose where to go.
