Over dit spel

Lang, lang geleden was er een eeuwenoud koninkrijk genaamd Ys, dat onder de auspiciën van de twee hemelse Godinnen veel voorspoed had. Na verloop van tijd kwam het koninkrijk bekend te staan als Esteria, en werd zijn goddelijke geschiedenis grotendeels vergeten door iedereen behalve de afstammelingen van diegenen die ooit de wil van Godinnen verkondigden. De enige herinnering aan deze verloren geschiedenis was een vervloekte toren aan de voet van een gigantische krater, die onder de lokale bevolking bekend kwam te staan als de “Devil’s Tower.”


Uiteindelijk begonnen de mannen en vrouwen die Esteria hun thuis noemden met het opgraven van een uniek, stralend zilver uit de nabije bergen, en ontwikkeling versnelde plots. Dorpjes werden gebouwd, en het land kwam vol met leven te zitten.


Maar toen, opeens, begonnen er monsters te verschijnen. Eerst maar een paar – maar al gauw zat het land er helemaal vol mee, en hadden de Esteriërs geen andere optie dan in angst te schuilen, en altijd waakzaam te zijn om in leven te blijven.


Ons verhaal begint met een jonge man die geruchten over deze tegenslagen gehoord heeft, en streefde om ze met zijn eigen ogen te bevestigen; een dappere zwaardvechter met een avontuurlijke ziel, versterkt door zijn eigen jonge naïviteit.


Zijn naam was Adol Christin.

Met geen aandacht voor zijn eigen veiligheid, zeilde Adol naar Esteria door een tot nu toe ondoordringbare barrière van oneindige stormen. Daar was hij bestemd om te worden verwikkeld in een 700 jaar oud mysterie dat hem uiteindelijk naar een lang verloren land in de wolken zou brengen...

Ys I & II Chronicles+ is de meest gemoderniseerde en nieuwste remake van Falcoms klassieke serie-beginnende actie-RPGs uit 1987 en 1988. Kom kijken hoe het verhaal begon, en aanschouw de geboorte van een legende!

Belangrijkste onderdelen

  • De klassieke knoploze “bots”-gevechten ontvangen een volledig door analog ondersteunde upgrade voor gamepadgebruikers, en worden in Ys II verbeterd met een robuust magiesysteem.
  • De mogelijkheid om de soundtrack te schakelen tussen de originele FM-synth uit de jaren 80, een vroege jaren 2000-remix in MIDI-stijl of een modern studio-optreden door Falcoms eigen rockband.
  • De mogelijkheid om karakterafbeeldingen te schakelen tussen portretten met een jaren 90-stijl of modernere anime-ontwerpen.
  • Vier kiesbare moeilijkheidsniveaus en een optionele boss rush-stand geven spelers een ware old-school-uitdaging (als ze die willen).
  • Verander in een demon om met elke standaardvijand in het hele spel te praten, wat zorgt voor een onovertroffen diepgang die tot de dag van vandaag nog steeds indrukwekkend is. (Alleen in Ys II)
  • Unieke Steam-prestaties, plus Steam Cloud-ondersteuning en klassementen.
  • Aanpasbare hoge resolutie PC-graphics met een gladde, consistente framerate.
  • Groter gezichtsveld dan in de voorheen beschikbare Ys I & II Chronicles-edities.
  • Sierlijke schermlijsten beschikbaar uit de vroegere Ys I & II PC Complete voor PC, die alleen in Japan uitgekomen is, met daarbovenop de modernere full-screenstand uit vorige Ys I & II Chronicles-edities.

This game has one of the hardest boss of all time Dark Fact. Dark Fact has no mercy to the weak soul. If you are a fan of the JRPG genre this is a must have to your collection. And if you are a hardcore gamer, Dark Fact is waiting for you.

An old school rpg with a unique style of combat that may not appeal to those used to turn based combat. In this you bump your character model into the enemy at angles and deal damage according to said angle, taking damage if they're directly facing you. Soundtrack is top notch, and the sprite work is pretty nice for a game over 30 years old. The story overall is your average fantasy tale, once you start playing it isn't hard to see where it's going to end. Worth picking this and the second game up for continuity, neither are particularly long, which is fine for the price you can pick both up for.

Since both games are tied to the same review apparently I'll continue with the second game. Like the first, the combat mechanic carries over using their bump system, so if you hadn't played the first which I'd recommend just for understanding the characters and what is going on with your situation, then you get to now. Honestly, this game is just more of the same and just finished the whole story off. If you liked the first, you'll like the second.

This game is a blast from the past. I played the original series from the older generation consoles. The game itself has nice characters, wonderful story, good development, and a nice animation tone to it. There are variations however the game is truly lived to it's run. The series has met what it did before and transferring it here for those who can't get it, helps out a lot and a bundle to. I loved playing these treasures from ways ago. If you like this, you may like Shining Tears and Suikoden as other series that have many other rpg respective elements. However this game series was one piece of my childhood 10 out 10.

The Ys games are small, short JRPGs. What really makes them stand out is the combat. Instead of turn based, selecting your move from a list, Ys instead adopts a mechanic wherein you “bump” into the enemies. This is done by walking into the enemies either off centre in the first game or at a diagonal in the second game.

The games overall are relatively simple. Bump into enemies, level up, continue on your quest. If you can no longer damage enemies you need an equipment upgrade or to level some more. The story is also pretty simple in both games as long as you pay attention to where you need to be heading, otherwise you can find yourself getting one hit killed by encountering certain enemies too early.

Both games have a great soundtrack, are bundled at a cheap price and are JRPGs that don’t take 60+ hours to complete. A warning though, the bosses in the second game are more bullet-hell so make sure you are prepared.

I really enjoyed this game, but it IS quite different from most JRPG and even Action RPG games. Make sure you look up the bump style combat and the history of the original games before you buy, as it may not be your thing.

That said, it makes for a fun, short, and easily replayable adventure that ends up feeling more like a Zelda-esque adventure game than anything else. The skill based combat, tough boss fights, beautiful art and cutscenes, and great soundtrack make this a solid 7 out of 10 for me. No regrets with my purchase or play time.

Join our red headed warrior in his quest to bump shoulders with various baddies. Ys Chronicles is the remake of the classic PC98 and Turbografx 16 action role-playing game. Combat is simple, but frantic, where you bump into enemies off-center to do damage. Mastering this is crucial, because the bosses don't screw around and you can die pretty fast if you aren't careful! The first Ys game is fairly short and you beat it in one sitting, but thankfully this comes with the first and second game, so you get quite a bit of mileage out of it regardless. This is a classic action game remade with some incredible music, and an interesting (albeit, somewhat generic) story. If you do like this, check out the rest of the Falcom library.

Got to the maximum level in about an hour, then spent another looking for the book of Ys. This is a good oldie, but it's short. i dont need to finnish it to tell you that. I love the Ys series, bosses are hard, varied characters and enemies and there is always some sort of suprise or twist that comes with these games.
the only thing i didnt like about this one is that when you start off, there is no clear objective or quest. This is inconvienient but it allows for some lore exploration and whatever the devs put in.

Worth a buy if you are a fan of JRPGs and worth a buy on discounted sales if you want to become one.
Old but gold, for fans of story driven RPGs definitely worth a look. First game is a tad short but thats why it comes in the bundle. At the beginning it felt a bit grindy but once you get used to the combat system it becomes bearable. Boss encounters are though and unbeatable below certain thresholds but thats how JRPGs handle business. Special props deserve the anime FMVs and especially the soundtrack, the music is superb!

The music, the character interactions and the small touches make this a very good game with attention to detail expected of Japanese developers.
Whether you will love this game or hate it, though, ultimately comes down to if you like the combat system or not.

If you are considering buying this game, educate yourself. Look up videos that show off the combat so you will know whether you like it or not.

I personally think the combat makes the whole game more fast-paced and the sound and graphic design makes it extremely satisfying.
However, if the combat does not appeal to you, you will throw away money if you buy this game.

You like Zelda from SNES days? Yes? then buy this game!
The only thing I disliked about this medieval fantasy action-rpg is the lack of: robots,lasers,starships and blonde women.

I give this women, I mean game 8.5 out of.... 10 right? yeah 9/10 I give it.

I purchased Ys I & II Chronicles+ when it was on sale. Ys I & II Chronicles+ is actually two games bundled into one, with Ys II being a direct sequel to Ys I. These games are short. Each game took me about 8 hours to complete on normal difficulty. I filled out the notebook to get the steam achievements so it probably took a bit longer than average. I've heard the game can be frustrating to beat on harder difficulties but I have yet to try. The game works great with my Logitech F310 gamepad and I preferred control through the gamepad rather than the keyboard. Overall, a great game with an intriguing fantasy setting that JRPG lovers should enjoy.

Ys1:

Since The review is for both games, mine will be incomplete until I finish the second.

There is an interesting story to be hhad with this game. It is perhaps the only thing that may keep you playing as the combat isn't really engaging.

The combat is you running in to monsters untill they die. There is not strategy or fun really to be had there. Its not bad but it doesn't really add anything to the game. I think if the game had been any longer than it was it would have gotten old. I am hoping the second one adds something to this system as im sure I am not going to like it if it is the same thing for another 4 hours.

There are also a lot of strange solutions to progressing in this game that you are going to need a guide for if you dont want to be annoyed.

The soundtrack is very good. I enjoyed all of the music that played even if at times it didn't fit what was happening well.

Ys2:

If you can get past the bump battle system which may seem a little strange at first, you will find a great (but short) rpg with lots of interesting lore and dialogue and extremely challenging bosses.

Worth a playthrough on nightmare for those seeking a nice challenge.

An enjoyable classic RPG bundle, both with interesting stories, cool graphics and music, and simple yet fun gameplay which will drag you in, even if you aren't the biggest RPG fanatic ever, like me. Definitely a great way to get into the series if you haven't been introduced to the original games.

A very energetic, fast-paced action RPG. With great music, awesome pixel art, and a healthy dose of challenge, Ys I should keep you entertained if you're in the mood for an RPG, but you don't wanna dedicate 40+ hours to it. However, the "bump-based" combat takes some getting used to, and some of what you have to do is a little unclear near the end. It's nothing a quick glance at a guide doesn't clear up, though.
