Interesting story.
Lovely graphics.
Great lore.
Battles are good fun.
Conversations feel weird.
Have to enjoy Japanese humour.


I’d never played an Ys game before, but as an introduction to the series, this is a great game. It’s already set in a world that has a rich lore and history, and it explains itself pretty well as you go along. The conversations are a bit stilted, but overall it’s a very solid game, well worth playing.
