I actually liked the remake more than "masterpieces" like Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Souls games. The original Secret of Mana isn't infallible, and there are features in the remake I prefer such as autosaving when transitioning between screens. It does have issues, for sure, such as lips not moving with voice acting, but if critics like games I dislike and dislike games I like, then I can't take them seriously.
