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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I didn't expect this to be so amazing. This is an extremely well-ported remake of the first two Ys games, 100% compatible with any modern windows operating system (7, 8, 8.1) and it runs smooth as butter out of the box - all that's required is to set your screen resolution in the config program. It will automatically recognize your xbox 360 joypad (I'm using a ps3 joypad with a 360 joypad emulator) and it can run at any refresh rate (I'm playing at 120hz @ 120fps which is an incredibly smooth and pleasant gameplay experience with super responsive input.
The gameplay is extremely enjoyable. I had played Ys: oath in felghana before and I absolutely loved it, but Ys I & II blew me away. The combat system is unlike anything I've ever seen before: you basically have to bump into enemies at precise angles to maximize damage without getting hurt and your character will automatically attack as you bump into the enemies. This makes fighting extremely entertaining, with its extremely simple yet fast-paced and challenging-to-master mechanics.
The game is filled with cool secrets / extras that add tons of replay value along with the newly added steam achievements which will make you want to play through the game all over again.
The soundtrack is asbolutely amazing and I loved every single track of it. I am going to play the hell out of this game and probabilly get as many as the achievements as I can.

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.

Game is pretty good, I'll say this, but I encountered an issue where the game seems to house a trojan in one of its files and once removed, it makes the game not even boot up at all, let alone even able to update anything.

But other than that (I seriously hope they fix this issue) it's pretty fun and gives a good nostalgia factor with the Genesis-style music when enabled. Battle system's easy to pick up on but can be tough to master especially on bosses. Some stuff as well isn't easy to come by but that's a lot of what the old games were like. The achievements are pretty funny though.

Anything if they fix the trojan issue, then I highly recommend the game and series. (Ys 1 has the issue, Ys 2 doesn't seem to though.)

Classic. Remember sitting watching my brother-in-law play Ys I on his Turbo Graphix as a child. Ahhh 1989. This game gets an upgrade from the original Turbo Graphix version in terms of graphics otherwise it remains the same. Keep in mind if buying that this game is now 25 years old just with enhanced graphics and it's still a treasure. Ys II is my favorite of the two, but you should play Ys I for the story of course. Ys I and Ys II will always hold a special place in my heart <3

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.

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.

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.
