  • 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 called it garbage and gave it 0's obviously don't know what they are talking about.

  • 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.).

Fun, but a bit outdated

  • Summary: I've been a fan of the later games in the series, but I never really check out the earlier entries. When I did, I knew nothing of the bumping mechanic and the general lack of direction common of games of that period. That made some areas tough to complete. There is no indication you absolutely must have certain equipment to defeat certain bosses, but when you do know, beating on them is quite satisfying.

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 for the sprite. Garbage. There are better games for FREE on IOS.

  • 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 Sega Master System version.

  • 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. Don't let the pretty Japanese animation when you talk to item shop owners fool you. There is 0 content here.
