Informace o hře

700 years before the events of Ys I & II, the land of Ys was on the brink of destruction. Demons came in droves and forced the twin Goddesses who ruled the land to whisk their subjects away from the surface, into the safe embrace of the clouds. The demons were persistent, however, erecting a massive tower in pursuit. The battle that raged upon the ground had begun ascending for a second round up above.

One day, amidst this turmoil, the Goddesses stole away into the night, vanishing from Ys altogether. And there's only one place they could have gone: the Devil's Tower.

A search party of knights and sorcerers was hastily formed and dispatched to the surface in hopes of retrieving these runaway deities. Among its members were apprentice knight Yunica Tovah and troubled sorcerer Hugo Fact.

This is their story. Or at least, it's how each of them remembers it.

Expanding upon the gameplay elements introduced in Ys: The Ark of Napishtim and further developed in Ys: The Oath in Felghana, Ys Origin perfects the formula by adding different styles of play and new features never before seen in the Ys universe. Best described as an arcade-like platformer RPG with Metroidvania elements and a complex, multi-faceted narrative, Ys Origin is the perfect mix of action, exploration and story. Screen-filling bosses with complex AI, unique platforming elements, innovative puzzles and a deeply involving mystery await within the wildly varied confines of this classic Ys dungeon.

Come see how long you can last in the Devil's Tower...

Just like all games in the Ys series, what you're getting with this title is a fast-paced action RPG. The regular enemies are mostly an easy grind, but the boss battles are a different story. If there is another thing the Ys series has a reputation for, it's grueling boss battles that often require multiple attempts and still manage to decimate your HP even if you emerge the victor.

The one major downside to Ys Origin is that----unlike previous Ys games that involved exploring an overworld, traveling to different towns, and exploring different dungeons---Ys Origin is just one non-stop slash-fest through a single extremely long dungeon. While the dungeon wallpaper does change somewhat as you make progress, the entire dungeon pretty much feels exactly the same, which can leave you feeling bored of the scenery hours before reaching the final boss.

The game also has multiple characters with which to complete the campaign as well as an unlockable arena mode. If you are the kind of person who likes that kind of extra content and you like the action of the game enough that you feel like making one more go through the dungeon all over again with a second character, then you will be pleased to have the option. As for me, I personally got too bored of being trapped inside the one neverending dungeon for 14 hours, so the idea of doing it all over again just to play with a different skill set for fourteen MORE hours does not sufficiently entice me. Since the game is somewhat of a grindfest (especially near the end), I just don't find the replay value to be nearly that high. Still, it is a great bonus for those who want an extra challenge or just haven't eaten their fill of the hacking and slashing yet.

I feel like I only have one major gripe with the game, which is that the designer chose to arbitrarily disable your ability to pause the game or access the main menu during boss fights or cut scenes (which--to make matters worse--are unskippable). When I raised this concern to other players, some came to its defense explaining that it is an intentional design decision to keep you from swapping equipment in battles. However, I don't think that is a very good excuse. One very well could have disabled access to the inventory/equipment screen only. But making it impossible to pause the game or open the main menu means that, for example, if you decide that you want to QUIT the game during a boss battle, then your only option is to Alt+F4 or kill it via task manager. Both of those are easy enough to do, sure, and yet I can't help but feel like this is an obtuse and unwieldy measure taken for a small design nitpick. The fact that you can't skip cut scenes or even open the main menu during cut scenes seems even less excusable, since there can be no game design argument for it.

Small gripes aside, if you are at all a JRPG fan/enthusiast and want to slash up some monsters in an action RPG, I'd recommend giving it a whirl.

As for the other question: is it worth twenty whole dollars? I personally feel like $20 is slightly steep for this one. $15 feels like a good maximum price to me. $10 or below is a bargain. Therefore, using the rating scale below, I rate the game at around a 4.

7) A classic, essential, and/or must-buy game that is worth full price.
6) A good game that is worth the full price.
5) A pretty good game worth checking out--especially if discounted.
4) A pretty good game, but I would recommend buying it discounted.
3) Worth checking out, but I would recommend buying it heavily discounted.
2) Only worth checking out if you are dangerously curious.
1) Avoid at all costs.

It's a satisfying hack and slash game, but keep in mind, this is not a title for the intellectual gamer. I'll start by explaining what I don't like before what I do like.

(IMPORTANT - This game is not worth $19.99. Get it when it goes on sale.)


The writing is horrible and the game treats you like a baby that can't figure anything out on your own. For example, I entered a zone on the 12th floor that would quickly drain my HP simply by being there, forcing me to leave the area. When the character said that it felt like an evil sound boring into her head, I checked my inventory and saw the silver harmonica given to me by one of the goddesses. I figured "No brainer right? I just got this thing, so obviously this is the solution."

I go back into the zone and try using the harmonica, but it doesn't work. And not in the context that the character tried using it, but failed. I mean I went to use the item and got the equivalent of Prof. Oak saying "Now is not the time to use that."

No, you have to call somebody outside of the room, listen to a conversation, and have the character say bluntly that "Hey, look at this here harmonica. I'll betcha that will solve the problem." So now, I don't feel like somebody who used reasoning to deduce the solution to a problem. I feel like my hand is being held. (And yes, I know that the harmonica still doesn't technically work even after the conversation, but it still serves the purpose of progressing the game.)

And again, the writing is fanfiction levels of god awful. Maybe if the writing were better and didn't look like it was tailored to pre-teens, the story could possibly be decent. But with writing like this, there's no way any adult could enjoy it.

---

As for the good things about the game, despite not being the deepest combat system, it's very fast paced and feels extremely satisfying. I've played the game for about 6 hours now and I'm still not tired of the button mashy combat. Enemies spit out tons of resources after being defeated, giving that packrat portion of our minds a constant tickle.

My favorite part of the game would have to be the boss fights. Unlike other aspects that treat you like a child, these boss fights are pretty brutal. I'm playing the game on hard mode, and I've had to go through these fights at least 10 or so times before coming away victorious. I love that there's actually room to strategize in these fights. Like a giant centipede that drops poison time bombs from its destroyed body parts. Do you try your best to methodically clear out the bombs, or do you continue assaulting the boss and hope to outlast them? And while you do have the opportunity to go back and grind out some levels to make it easier, these bosses will still command all of your attention.

Overall, I don't believe the game is worth the asking price of $19.99. If the writing were better and if the zones actually had secrets and left more room for exploration, then it would be a no brainer. As it stands, Ys Origin is a fairly straightforward hack and slash that is very good when you're actually playing the game, but suffers when anybody opens their mouth. Again, get it on sale for sure. Around $4.99 is more than acceptable.

I can't recommend this game enough, I just love it. From the music to the art to the simplistic, yet endearing story, this game is a must have for every action jrpg player.
