Info over het 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...

Ys Origin does a great job explaining the past, it also features interesting characters that you can finish the game with (each one having their own unique game-play, equipment, short storyline and so).

For those who don't know, Ys is an old school action RPG (from the late 80's) that luckily didn't got extinct in today's modern video game industry (That strives to approach to the masses), the surviving series features a very solid and hardcore experience for those who delve in to it (No hands are held here, not suitable for some casual players).

Without delving that much in to the storyline, I'll start by saying that the whole game is set in a massively big tower with tons of floors where you'll actively explore till you reach the top, all because due to the fact you're part of a team that is looking for two mysterious female angel like characters who have disappeared and also they are fighting a mysterious evil that suddenly appeared on their land.

Just like the first of the series, it is based on your character progression (Status), based on your skill and how well prepared and equipped you're, you'll fight tons of different minions and bosses through out the game.

The game is fast paced, if you're used to a slower and less action based game, then do not delve in to this one, you'll have to be quick and prepare yourself to evade any possible attacks and at the same time plan how you'll attack your foes quickly before their defense is up again.

You're forced to play the game to unlock new areas as you progress but do take in mind that you're not only forced to a narrow path, you'll have some freedom of exploration to farm and grab new items.

As for the game soundtrack you'll be delighted, it is so memorable!
In terms of art style and UI they are all professionally done and will set in motion your connection to the game, giving you a taste of immersion (You'll have a good read, the game has a big script), character wise; some are forgettable but overall your experience with them is quite positive.

If you like Anime and you like oldschool games that are fast paced and hard, then this is the game for you!

Ys Origin is quite possibly my favorite game on Steam.
It might be because I was already a big fan of the Ys series before I played it, but still! It's a great game.

Ys Origin is an action RPG, with a hack and slash styled battle system. There are 3 playable characters, the 3rd being unlocked when you clear the game the first time with either of the first two characters. Each character has a very specific playstyle. To avoid spoilers, I'll only detail the initial two.

Hugo Fact is a ranged caster. He is very powerful, firing off spell bullets from his wand and his twin artifacts known as the "Eyes of Fact" that hover at his side at all times. His is very agile, but he cannot fire while moving.

Yunica Tovah is a melee attacker. Armed with her handaxe (and later greatsword), she excels at close combat. She is very quick, dealing fast, hard damage to her opponents.

When you start the game, you get to choose from many different difficulty settings (Very Easy, Easy, Normal, Hard, Very Hard, Nightmare), as well as choose which character you want to play as. Each character has their own storyline, though all three of them are intertwined. Playing each character is highly recommended, as each storyline offers more and more insight into the overall picture.

Gameplay consists of your typical RPG fare: battling monsters while exploring your surroundings. In Ys Origin, you are tasked with exploring a giant tower that extends to the heavens. The tower is broken up into segments, with each segment offering a different environment to do battle in and explore. They are varied enough to where sometimes you forget you are in a tower and are instead traversing a dungeon located elsewhere. At the end of each segment (and sometimes in the middle) you are presented with a boss. The end of each segment is always a screen-filling boss, and these are the most fun parts of the game, each requiring some strategy to defeat.

The music and sound effects are top-notch. The Ys series is known for their amazing soundtracks, and Origin is no exception. After awhile I found myself whistling along as the music played! You may be inclined to find and purchase the soundtrack online...just a warning! :P

Overall this is just an awesome game. I got it on sale for about $7, but in my opinion the original, full price is WELL worth it. You get a lot of game for the price.

In short:

Gameplay 10/10
Story 9/10
Music/Sound 10/10
Replayability 9/10

Definitely recommend!

This is one of the best action RPGs available, with one of the best combat systems ever made. The game is also very challenging, but you can put it on an easier difficulty. Normal difficulty will cost you many deaths, especially during the difficult boss battles. The game will last you around 12 hours to play through the storyline portion, but it has high replay value. You can choose from 3 characters (1 is unlockable) and they each have their own storyline. I would say Hugo and the unlockable character have strong storylines, while Yunica has a weak one.

This game has lots of possibilities as far as completing the game. You really have to explore everything in order to obtain all of the items. While I did complete the game without finding all the the items, there is something if your at a certain level you need to obtain to drastically reduce the amount of damage you get in the final boss scene before taking them on.

One of the few games in my steam backlog that I've actually played to completion. An excellent little action RPG. Well worth your card-farmed credit.
