"Awesome short-form JRPG. Definitely belongs on this list because holy moly the dialogue is so anime. A+ replayability. Give it a shot :D"

Over dit spel

700 jaar voor de gebeurtenissen van Ys I & II stond het land van Ys op de rand van de ondergang. Demonen kwamen in hordes en dreven de Godinnentweeling die over het land heersten er toe hun onderdanen van het oppervlak weg te halen, en in de veiligheid van de wolken te plaatsen. Maar de demonen waren erg hardnekkig, en bouwden in hun achtervolging een gigantische toren. Het gevecht dat op de grond had voortgeraasd was begonnen omhoog te klimmen, voor een tweede ronde daarboven.

Op een dag, temidden van al deze opwekking, vertrokken de Godinnen de nacht in en verdwenen ze compleet uit Ys. En er is maar één plek waar ze kunnen zijn heengegaan: de Devil's Tower.

Een zoekpartij van ridders en tovenaars werd snel gevormd en naar het oppervlak gestuurd in de hoop deze weggerende godinnen terug te krijgen. Onder de leden bevonden zich de leerlingridder Yunica Tovah en verontruste tovenaar Hugo Fact.

Dit is hun verhaal. Of tenminste, het is hoe elk van hun het zich herinnert.

Ys Origin breidt de gameplay-elementen van Ys: The Ark of Napishtim die verder ontwikkeld werden in Ys: The Oath in Felghana uit, en brengt de formule tot perfectie door verschillende speelstijlen en nieuwe onderdelen toe te voegen die nooit eerder in het Ys-universum gezien zijn. Best beschreven als arcade-achtige platformer RPG met Metroidvania-elementen en een complex verhaal met meerdere kanten, is Ys Origin de perfecte mix van actie, verkenning en verhaal. Schermvullende bazen met ingewikkelde AI, unieke platformelementen, innovatieve puzzels en een meeslepend mysterie wachten binnen de wild gevarieerde muren van deze klassieke Ys-kerker.

Kom kijken hoe lang je kunt overleven in de Devil's Tower...

This is certainly an interesting game, it starts a little slow and just throws you in but thats pretty standard for a JRPG or a Hack n slash game.

Now the combat has three styles depending on the charecter that you are using, the first uses an axe and physical skills, three skills and each of those skills have charge ups depending on how much power you which to throw at the bad guys. The second charecter is a little slower but they can use magic, its pretty much the same but different ranges/speed/damage etc. The third charecter is a secret you will have to find that yourself because its a spoiler if I tell you. Expect the gameplay to be vastly different for each of these charecters, you can also get various varients of the charecters which changes the way it all plays out.

The artstyle is pretty old fashioned, its immersive though so it doesnt really matter. In the various dungeons that you are in you will find various artstyles depending on what theme that area is going for. Its pretty cool and the soundtrack that goes with it helps a lot.

Onto music which we touched on before, at the start you would think that its a little cookie cutter but after a while you understand that the music goes with the various themes and the emotions of the game. For this reason they seem to compliment eachother very well and it sort of amplifies the emotions that you feel throughout the game.

Storyline of this game isnt the most complex one ever id say, that being said ive only done a singe playthrough and its designed for you to play the three charecters because they each have different viewpoints in the story, they each lead to the same point but you will have to face various challenges to get to your end goal. At some points you will question what your protagonist is thinking or what their motivations are. Its well thoughtout id say but the introduction into the game was a little poor. As i understand this is the first in the series so i imagine it is meant to lay down a good foundation to the rest of the series so think of it as a prologue, a very long prologue. Its about 10-12 hours to finish the story for a single person, i imagine its the same or faster with the others.

Difficulty, this is the meat of the game because holy hell is it hard. Just go into the discussions and you will witness the poor souls that have come close to throwing all sorts of hardware out the window, at the wall or at a sibling due to how hard this can get especially the bosses. The normal difficulty of this game is hard, the easy difficulty of this game is challenging, hell even in very easy you will struggle at times. Its not for the faint of heart but that is a good thing because its pretty rare to get a fleshed out game with those sorts of scenarios anymore. It also leads to the 400+ types of monsters that you will occur, some are strong, some are weak, some resist fire, some arent. You will encounter all sorts of rabble but they all want to kill you.

In the end this is a game that i can recommend to anyone, if you dont want to break anything then play on very easy and then work your way up, it certainly is addictive and you get one hell of a euphoria after you beat what seemed like an unbeatable boss at first(looking at you mantid)

I was given the idea to play Ys Origin by a streamer I watched and a friend I often speak to who had nothing but praises for this franchise. When I first picked up this game I had my doubts and I wasn't entirely sure if I was going to enjoy playing it or not. I was dead wrong.

Ys Origin is quite the amazing game, I have finished the game on two different difficulties with two of the characters and doing a nightmare playthrough on the 3rd. Even on Nightmare this game is still fresh and challenging, i've spent my time streaming this game a lot longer than I usually stream, upwards to 8 hours from my usual 5 hours and I don't want to put it down.

The story itself can be a bit difficult to follow if you haven't played any of the other games but it's a enjoyable experience itself. The combat in the game is superb and the bosses equally so, there are some minor annoyances but the game outshines them completely. I would recommend getting this game if you're a fan of great combat and RPGs. 10/10.

Decent plot, fun (and challenging if playing on higher difficulties) gamplay, and great soundtrack makes this a pretty good game. Achievements add to replayability if that's your kind of thing.

Get this game either on sale or at regular price, I don't care. You owe it to yourself to at least try the game once in your lifetime. If you have this game sitting in your Steam library, you are doing yourself a grave disservice by not playing it.

Easily one of if not the best ARPG I've played. It's fast, clean, constantly tossing great ideas at us the players and sounds AMAZING. Masterful OST.

Must play for those needing some ARPG and need it now.

Perhaps it's better I don't bother to try and describe why this game is good, and just let some of the music speak for itself.

The game is as good as that music. There. That's all you need to know.
