  • Summary: I got all the way to Darn Tower and had enough of the game. Didn't even start Ys 2. I'm sure back then this was great but now days its just not very good. Everything about it is VERY primitive and simplistic. Ys came out originally in what 1990 or prior. Its not something I would recommend to people unless they are curious as how the games used to be. PS: Oh and the people below that I got all the way to Darn Tower and had enough of the game. Didn't even start Ys 2.

Amazing Title in the RPG genre!

  • Summary: Ys I and II Chronicles is a remake drone the originals. Everything in this game is far superior then the classics and what's event better is that both games are bundled together. If your a fan of RPGs especially Action RPGs then you need to grab this one.

Definitive Version of Both Games

  • Summary: The first two games in Nihon Falcom's Ys series would definitely be frontrunners for the Guinness World Record for most ports and/or remakes of a videogame, seeing releases on various kinds of computers in Japan not to mention releases on the Famicom, TurboGrafx-16, Microsoft Windows, Sega Saturn, PlayStation 2, the Nintendo DS, and the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console.

  • Summary: This game is just mediocre. It's not a bad game but it gives no satisfaction. Story seems on the weak side, graphics are pleasant, the music is good. The combat system is the weakest spot of the game. You have just to bounce on enemies. Weaponry too is just plain bad. I would not recommend this game, better to stick to other series (like Suikoden, Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, etc.).

Wow, what an amazing game. Played the PC release that this is based off, and this is so worth owning

  • Summary: I don't even mean the Steam version. I mean the original PC release. Anyway, this is perhaps the definitive version of YS 1&2 for now. There will likely be new remakes in the future. Controls are solid, the small easter eggs like a shoutout to Xenogears and Chrono Trigger were funny to read, and the overall localization is just quality. Nice job XSeed, now if only YS would grow in popularity in the US.

  • Summary: I have played a lot of J-rpgs in my day. This one is garbage. Do not even bother pirating this stupid game. I was under the impression that this would be a secret of manna clone, but it is far worse. This plays like a junior high computer class project. the "bump'" system is where you "bump" into enemies to deal damage. It is garbage. There is no skill, no challenge, not even an animation I have played a lot of J-rpgs in my day. This one is garbage.

  • Summary: I love this release of the first two games of the Ys series. It's the old-school gameplay I love, with modern graphics and sound. The games are a little on the short side, that's true, but the reviewer who mentioned 2-3 hours probably never played any of the games. It took me a little less than 10 hours to beat Ys 1 on Normal difficulty level, while I know the game very well from the I love this release of the first two games of the Ys series.

  • Summary: Yet another stellar package on the PSP by Falcom who seem to be able to do no wrong of late. I absolutely loved Ys I & II back in the day and becoming reacquainted after all these years later has proven to be a blast. A word of warning for those who know the series through recent installments 6 & 7... at it's core Chronicles is as old-school as it gets. I for one, though, am glad Falcom haven't dramtically altered the gameplay.

  • Summary: The absence of an attack button is just annoying. Instead you run into your enemies to cause damage. Unfortunately this "Bump System" can be so finicky that you feel like a pinball pushed through mazes. Only for tradition lovers, I would rather spend my money on the damn epic rocking soundtrack.

  • Summary: If level capping, having all the gear in the game, and rolling the credits in 2-3 hours sounds like fun go for it. This game is literally so short it is not even worth playing. The "bump" system.... are you serious? You mean "lazy ass run into stuff system"? The first town you see in the game has 3/5 of the gear you get in the entire game.
