"This is a fun, classic JRPG game pack with great music and story. It also has options to use three versions of each song, making it really enjoyable!"

Acerca de este juego

Long, long ago, there was an ancient kingdom called Ys which prospered under the auspices of two heavenly Goddesses. Over time, the kingdom came to be known as Esteria, and its divine history was largely forgotten by all but the descendants of those who once preached the Goddesses’ will. The only reminder of this lost lore was a cursed spire at the foot of a giant crater, which locals came to regard as “The Devil’s Tower.”


Eventually, the men and women who called Esteria their home began mining a uniquely radiant silver from the nearby mountains, and development boomed. Towns were built, and the land became rich with life.


Then, all at once, monsters began to appear. Only a few at first – but soon enough, the land was swarming with them, and the Esterians had no choice but to hide in fear, remaining ever vigilant just to stay alive.


Our story begins with a young man who’d heard rumors of these misfortunes, and strove to verify them with his own eyes; a brave swordsman with an adventurous spirit bolstered by his own youthful naiveté.


His name was Adol Christin.

With no regard for his own safety, Adol set sail toward Esteria through a heretofore impassable barrier of neverending storms. There, he was destined to become ensconced within a 700 year-old mystery that would ultimately take him to a long-lost land nestled amongst the clouds...

Ys I & II Chronicles+ is the most modernized and up-to-date remake of Falcom’s classic franchise-spawning action RPGs from 1987 and 1988. Come see how the story began, and witness the birth of a legend!

Key Features

  • Classic buttonless “bump” combat receives a full analog-enabled upgrade for gamepad users, and is augmented in Ys II by a robust magic system.

  • Character art selectable from 90s-style portraits or more modern anime designs.
  • Four selectable difficulty levels and optional boss rush mode grant players a true old-school challenge (if desired).
  • Transform into a demon to speak with any and every standard enemy in the game, creating unparalleled depth that still impresses even to this day. (Ys II only)

  • Adjustable high-resolution PC graphics with a smooth, consistent framerate.
  • Greater viewing area than in previously-available Ys I & II Chronicles editions.

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 os, 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.

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:

*Coming Soon*

Very mediocre RPG with a throwaway story, terrible level design that is painful (making me turn to a walk-through, and even then being confused by some of the solutions). Really can not recommend on any level other than people looking for a dose of nostalgia. The gameplay is also pretty much non existent. Run into enemies... no block, no attack, nothing, just run into them. So bad.

The key to push forward in any Ys (pronounced eese) game is to grind to level up and also save ALOT. I saved immediately after I get items and stand in front of a bosses door. And as for leveling up, some bosses are hard if you don't level up.

As for the game itself, there was something lacking with this version versus the TurboGrafx version that lost it's charm, however it is still a fun game to play. The list below metions some of the bad parts of the game.

- Why isn't there a front entrance to Minea?
- Triggers to make the game progress are SO ANNOYING (ie. Jeva, Feena)
- Why must I EAT the Rhoda tree seed? This was not in the original.
- The last thing is the annoying amulet you must get in the tower after climing all the way up to the top. This also annoyed me in the original TurboGrafx version.

Overall, the music was spectacular, but still doesn't compare to the Turbo Grafx version. Something is just missing.

Great old school game!! But play the Wii/Turbo version if you want a better game.

And as for all you whiny babies who need to swing a sword and stopped playing because of it, give it another try! There is nothing like ramming into monsters when you are fully powered and acting like you are playing Zelda on crack.

I give this game an 8.5. The TurboGrafx/wii version a 10.

Ys I - While fun for parts, several of the boss battles are far too chance based (rather than skill based). Also, you're going to waste a bunch of time unless you play it with a guide because it there's usually not a clear logic as to what you are supposed to do next. Other than that it's kinda fun, but the randomness of the bossess really ruins it for me. I felt like I was just following a recipe as I used a walkthrough to beat it, which detracted from it.

Ys II is probably better in terms of randomness, but I don't know if it's really worth suffering through Ys I to play Ys II.

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.

Una historia clásica de esas que nos encantará a los amantes de la fantasía épica y con una banda sonora que siempre me ha encantado, pero muy a mi pesar el juego se hace muy duro de jugar. Su sistema de combate ha envejecido muy mal y que abusa mucho de la exploración/azar de encontrar cosas necesarias para avanzar.

Lo recomiendo si os gusta este tipo de historias de fantasía o queréis jugar a una de las grandes y clásicas sagas de RPGs, en cuyo caso os animo a jugarlo porque no son nada largos, y sabiendo lo que tenéis que hacer el juego es entretenido y ameno, así que no os de vergüenza y jugarlo con una guía mano porque si no es casi seguro que lo dejéis de lado por pura desesperación de dar vueltas por todos lados sin saber que hacer en demasiadas ocasiones, que prácticamente es el mayor problema que le veo a este juego.

Así que si os animáis a jugarlo, aquí os dejo los enlaces a la guías que termine usando, muy completas tanto si queréis pasaros los dos juegos al 100% o tan solo usarlas para orientarse en ciertos momentos.

Even on the easiest level of the game - it still has a high level of challenge and difficultly but the way you attack enemies is different - you must bump into them. A plus is that you can recover HP if you are standing still in most places. If you are familiar with Y's Book 1 and 2 on PC Engine, you have a pretty good feel for this story , however some elements have been reworked to provide an element of challenge in order to advance to specific portions of the game. Some early bosses - You will find out quickly that you have to level up so high in order to beat them. That may take a long time but in the end, your Gold Level will rise high and you can buy some of the more expensive items from the get go.

Another plus of this game is the choice of soundtrack. You have Chronicles, Complete and PC-88 to choose from. For nostalgic purposes I turn it on PC - 88 because I love the retro music.

Being that I own Y's Oath in Felghana and Y's Origin , I had to play this. I had realized that this was also released on PSP but never owned a PSP.

Beginners and seasoned Y's players will find a variety of stuff to do in both of these games and its a bargain for the price that was paid for the game. You don't see quality console RPG Games like this on PC that much.

Played this game on the PC Engine CD and it's nice to see it in Steam with update graphics, better movement, FMVs and revamped GUI.

Tread lightly specially in the final boss where the difficulty jumps from 5 to 10. It seems that the battle scenario writer is a bit S in nature.

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.

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.

I found it to be very enjoyable, at a low difficulty it is very relaxing and at a high difficulty aka nightmare it has a great challenge, well worth the price in my opinion

This game is a "blockbuster" hit made back in 1972 featuring Adol Christin and Hugo Fact Jr Jr Jr Jr. The objective is to make sure the white dot doesn't go behind the white paddle by running the white paddle into the white dot. For it's time, it had a rockin' soundtrack but this was countered by the lack of lives if you missed the white block. I think Ys is the score at the top of the screen and the middle line is the Darm tower.

Good game 7/pong

-------

Okay, on a serious note:

I had just finished Ys II. Ys I wasn't much of a mystery since I had already completed Ys Origin. However, this allowed me to see the undercurrent of how things developed and where they were going. I know this led me to care a lot more about Reah and Feena in the first part than the game probably meant. This aside, my viewpoint may be a bit different than someone who experienced this outside of Origin. Oath in Felghana is a DEFINITE pick up for me after what this series has done so far.

Now on to how I actually feel about this.

Mechanics: Ys I starts off feeling like a recreation of its past self. That doesn't necessarily mean it’s a bad thing but the bump mechanics take a bit to get used to. Mix this with the game not easily spelling things out for you as you go. As long as you’re a fan of more hardcore/older RPGs, you’ll find the entire thing refreshing and intuitive *IF* you get used to it. If you can’t get used to it after at least leveling up a few times, you’re probably going to want to drop this and see if you can approach Ys from one of its newer titles where the bump mechanic has been removed.

Story: Ys I feels fairly like an introduction leading up to something. I would consider it more of a ‘wind-up’ into Ys II. If it weren’t for how the plot plays out into the second one, the first one should have almost been treated as the same game. The plot is steady through the first game as it builds up plot and gives you a chance to make the connections as it goes. This unfortunately was already spelled out after meeting a certain homeless bard in an alleyway (thanks Origin). Ys II picks up the pace of things and vastly expands the story. Ys I still serves as a mandatory part of II since a lot of the story later relies on things you understand from I. Ys I isn’t very long, and there wouldn’t be much of a reason for you to skip Ys I to being with.

Immersion: This is something I found buckets full of in Ys II but not as much in I (see “introduction” above). Ys II is substantially larger. Plot is much more relevant and requires a bit of thinking on occasion. When you do make those connections, it makes progress feel rewarding. The story flows together nicely and Ys always manages to strike the right melody with the mood. The art style was also updated in Ys II so you don’t feel like you’re looking at the same textures through each area. Updated and added mechanics such as magic make the combat feel a little less like tackle football.

Overall, I would have loved to give Ys I more attention it deserved. While it was still good, it felt disappointingly short when held on its own or next to Ys II. When Ys II came to the rescue, I enjoyed it substantially more. The bosses could have been a tad bit more intuitive (some were quite already). But other than that, Ys I & II presented a solid 9/10. This is definitely something to pick up if you enjoy older/hardcore RPGs.
