"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...

When I bought this game, I didn't expect too much. Like may be it can kill couple of hours of boredom. Most reviews are of some grand praise but how actually this could be any good, YouTube videos quite meh, nothing amusing.

So without much anticipation I picked some girl with axe and started in nightmare difficulty. Control was good and responsive; there are some instruments in your arsenal on how to wreak havoc on your enemies. However, your enemies aren’t going to watch you kill them, some immune to this, some immune to that, some shoot barrages of projectiles, some charge without rest, some come in swarms, some bestow loads of status effects. All of them share one thing: they want you DEAD RIGHT NOW.

Terrain is quite simple, however made well in its simplicity: every zone have unique feeling about it, not like “I can watch landscape forever” of course, but certainly adds to game.

Music was to my liking, which does not necessarily mean that you would like it, but this game strong point is that tracks come in huge variety. Orchestra, piano, violin, harmonica, metal, electronic stuff – game has that all. If you played through whole game and did not like a single track that would be a huuuge “WOW!” from me.

Plot is not complex and has nothing unexpected in it but still makes you feel for characters. If you’re new to YS, it would make a nice introduction, so you won’t have “what’s happening?” feelings, if you’re veteran, some why’s and what’s would be answered.

So like I said, I picked girl with axe and started playing. Shortly I came across that guy – Velagunder, he is boss of first subsection. And he killed me… repeatedly… for six hours straight… WHAT THE F…?! I sure am not “high skilled” player or something, but I was able to finish battletoads, TNMT, contra, rollergames and such titles on NES in my childhood. What is this guy? He surely is enjoying watching me struggle, shouting angry words and writhing in agony. Six hours after he decided to surrender and I was like: “YEAH! DIE! YOU ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!! HA! HA! HA!” running around the house like an idiot. Great feeling of completion over some pixels dead body, really not what you would have often nowadays.

And what I would like to say all of this guy's friends share his hobby. This not much anticipated game gave me hell of a journey. May be not the best game I ever played, but one of most memorable for sure. I liked it so much, so I bought other YS games available on Steam, and expecting more to come. YS is great franchise forged for over 20 years already and doing great on delivering suffering and spanking to people.

In conclusion, if you’re YS veteran, I wonder why you did not buy it already, YS Origin lives up to YS series standards in any way possible and if you’re new to YS whatever you like this game or not is up to you but it is sure worth a try.

Hack and slash with RPG elements where you must climb a tower killing all kinds of enemies and bosses on your way to the top to rescue a princess goddess.

  • Very solid controls and game mechanics, the game never gets fustrating despite it's dificulty. PLAY IT ON NIGHTMARE difficulty; in a similar way to Dark Souls bosses will bully you, and you will enjoy it, always coming back for more until you finally succeed.
  • Cute graphics.
  • Good music.
  • High replayability thanks to multiple characters with different playstyles and abilities, unlockables, alternate gamemodes and more. Fun game to 100% if you are a completionist.
  • Story is okay, but if you don't care about it, like me, then there's a ton of dialogue to go through (only negative part of the game: it could use a "skip full conversation" button).
  • Low price.

SCORE: Must play, stop reading reviews and buy it.

Even with its focus on Dungeon Action/Platforming, YsO is by far my favorite adventure game and story amongst Falcom's lineup currently on steam. The dialogue and localization is fantastically written, realistic, and invests you into characters without spoon-feeding you or succumbing to many of the usual JRPG tropes. The game is challenging at appropriate difficulties, and like all of Falcom's games, changes the way bosses fight instead of just increasing their damage like a lot of other games boringly do. The music is also a given if you know anything about Falcom and the in-house JDK band.

Potential drawbacks do include having to go through multiple playthroughs in order to get the complete story out of the game, but each character's strengths/weaknesses are different enough to provide a much different gameplay experience in addition to the altered story perspective. The game is also fairly short to where you could probably finish the game within 10 hours on the lower difficulties without issue if you rush, but the quality makes up for it.

By far the most satisfying game I 100%'d on steam.

I bought this game a long time ago and let it sit in my Library for ages (like I'm sure we all do once Winter and Summer sales roll around. I like to think of doing so as letting the game "age like a fine wine" or something like that). Well, I finally blew the dust off the cover (metaphorically) and grabbed my gamepad to begin playing. I was met with a well-done anime-esque intro matched with beautiful music (including a sick electric guitar and violin, two of my favorites). If you are on the fence about buying this, make the jump. It feels so classic and nostalgic to so many of the older action-rpg titles yet handles well and looks beautiful (the graphics, in my opinion, aged rather well). Buy it, you are sure to enjoy it if you are a fan of arpg's!

Ok, to put in perspective how good this game is, I was recommended this game by a friend and within the weekend I ended up beating it with all three characters. Within a month I had played every Ys game on Steam. After a while I ended up playing every localized Ys game and eventually I even played the fan translated Ys V. This series is that good. This game is like a gateway drug, only instead of being a gateway drug to something worse, it's like upgrading from sex to wild orgies with beautiful women.

This game controls like a dream, looks gorgeous on high settings, and is just challenging enough to feel like a real accomplishment when you progress. If you love action RPGs, you owe it to yourself to play it. Just remember, you're getting yourself into a beautiful addiction that you won't be able to stop.
