À propos de ce jeu

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)

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway.

jk its not bad

Simple, yet elegant in it's execution. One of the lesser known little gems among gamers today. If you like JRPG, this is a must have.
Not a fan of turn-based battle? Doesn't exist here! No random battle transitions... just quick, clean combat.
Not too difficult, but if you expect the game to hold your hand through its story then you're gonna get stuck on some parts.
You know, that's kind of the aspect of ADVENTURE!

I was presented to the YS universe by playing "Origin" at my friend's house. Until then I didn't really know anything about this series, I mean, I heard things about it but never paid much attention to it. At the time my friend said that YS was famous for having a notorious difficulty and he certainly wasn't lying about it! Well, after having so much fun with Origin, I've turned my attention to the first games of the series and I must confess that in the beggining I was quite disappointed with the change of the gameplay mechanics. I mean, instead of having to press any button in order to attack the foes, you'd only have to ram against them, pretty much like a football tackle. I won't deny that it took me a while to get used to it but after that everything went pretty smooth. The story is nice, the graphics are awesome and the soundtrack is insanely good (another remarkable feature of the series). Besides this, there're also the trading cards and some achievements to look for (although some of them are kinda weird to say the least). Overall, YS is definitely a great series and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves a good challenge (aka rage quits and shattered teeth).

I bought this after I have played Ys Origin cause I wanted to see the rest of this amazing world and history. Even though it is nothing like ys origin I still loved it but I can see why others didn't.

Ys I: The battlestyle is kindof strange at first as you battle by bumping into the enemies (I personally had not done that before). But the battlestyle makes it quite challenging cause you need to master it to not take to much damage and die. The boss battles are pretty easy though especially after have playing ys origin but still challenging enouth due to the dumping battle system.
The achievements is nice and challenging but requires alot of grinding.

I would recommend this for those that loved ys origin not for the gamestyle but for the story. If you loved the story, the history and characters you will recognize alot of them in this games.

People play Ys Origin/Oath and buy this expecting the same stuff, then get surprised when its old school
Just look at them trailers/pics and tell me with a straight face that you expect it to play like the newer entries in the series

I personally prefer this combat system over Final Fantasy or Dragon Warrior's, because it is simple, fast, and goes excellently to advance the rather simple story of "You are Adol, Hero of Ys. Defeat X and save the day!"

The combat system works for its time, the remastered graphics and music are great. Bosses are hard until you memorize their pattern, which applies to most bosses in video games of that time period.
Get this if you want to experience the legend, but go in with the mindset of reading a book, not watching a movie.

Je ferai le même commentaire pour Ys1 & 2
après une cinématique, sans queue ni tête, on arrive au menu et déja première difficulté pour commencer une partie, veut-on jouer à ys chronicle 2009 ou ys complete 2001 ...mouais ... une explication ? non ? bon bah ... le 2009 tient. et la une magnifique intro ... où l'on pige encore moins que la première cinématique mais c'est que c'est génial tout ça ... bon j'ai compris de l'intro, grace au dernière seconde surtout, que je m'étais échoué ... c'est déja ça. je commence à prendre l jeu en main et là c'est le drame, je sauvegarde coupe le jeu, installe ma manette de xb360 et relance une partie, ah oui ça va bcp mieux !! bon je fais du blabla avec tout le monde et je cherche où m'acheter arme et armure ... bon bah le forgeron est fermé, doit être entrain de faire la sieste, pas grave je vais taper du mob en dehors de la ville ça doit pas être si coriace même si j'ai choisit la difficulté maximale. je sors et vois un hommarbre ;p là on m'explique que pour attaque un mob, j'ai rien a faire de special, juste lui courir dessus et l'épée frappera toute seule, bon dans l'idée ça change et pourquoi pas après tout, mais après une de jeu je trouve ça ultra nazissime comme truc, car faut pas lui foncer droit dessus sinon on se prend masse dégats, faut essayer de froler le mob d'un coté ou d'un autre afin que l'épée attaque de coté sans qu'on se prenne de dégats ... encore si le mob était immobile, je dis pas, ça serait pas simple mais je pourrais y arriver sans trop de problème, mais là non, le mob bouge comme moi donc ça arrive très souvent que l'on se courre l'un derrière l'autre sans jamais se toucher ... génial ...le premier boss du jeu ... infaisable ou alors faut avoir une patience à toute épreuve et diriger son perso comme un dieu. ensuite l'éternelle quete du point A point B qui se répère un moment puis plus rien, l'objectif de quete est flou, il n'y a pas de suivi de quete en jeu pas de boussole qui t'indique où aller, c'est au pif, t'a intéret d'apprendre les cartes par coeur. heureusement que la vie remonte toute seule ... quand on morfle trop, c'est à dire environ toute les 5 sec de combat, suffit de s'éloigner du mob pour que la vie remonte toute seule, et ensuite retourner le poutrer. SAUF QUE ! quand tu bute un mob, et que tu sors de son écran de spawn, puis que tu reviens dans son écran de spawn, le mob respawn. ... ... ... ça fait qu'on peut tuer le même mob en boucle à l'infinie pour monter ses levels ... qui monter carrement pas vite ! faut tuer 100 fois l'hommarbre pour gagner un niveau, niveau qui ne te permet pas de bidouiller quoi que se soit sur le perso, juste un boost en stat. une bonne épée un bouclier et une armure digne de ce nom c'est bien 15k po. l'hommarbre vous rapporte 6 po ... faite le calcul, faut le tuer 2500 fois ce foutu mob, et encore s'il crevait en deux secondes je dis pas ! ça serait long mais faisable ... nonnnnnn on met bien 3-4 minutes à le poutrer ! et on peu pas taper les mob un cran au dessus histoire d'avoir plus d'exp et d'or car ils sont insensibles au coup de notre épée de ♥♥♥♥♥ ! donc faut buter le mob 2500 fois pour avoir un stuff pas trop dégueulasse pour pouvoir taper les hommarbre, puis les bonzomme à tete bleu, qui t'emmènent sur les chien rouge, ce qui t'ammène ensuite sur les chevalier (là si t'as pas économisé tes 15k po pour le bon matos t'es bon pour recommencer le farm car les chevalier s'en foute de ton épée courte), après les chevalier tu arrive au premier boss qui là te demande d'avoir une patience d'ange, ensuite tu affronte des squelette et des araignées qui t'emènne sur des chiens squelettes (intuable avec le stuff à 15k po) qui t'amène sur tes tête de monstre volante et des lion à deux pattes (intuable aussi) et t'es censé pour la première quete ramener un livre tout en bas du donjon ... sauf que d'est le troisième niveau tu peux plus avancer car t'as pas le bon stuff, et le nouveau stuff est NULLE PART ! MAIS ♥♥♥♥♥ QUOI !!!

Useless bit of trivia first.

The amount of times these games have been redone is truly mindblowing, but then again Ys has been around since 1987. What we have here is an enhanced port of a PSP port of an enhanced edition of a windows remake of a combined turbografx-16/pc-engine remake of a pair of games on an ancient japanese pc. Rolls right off the tongue and I'm not even gonna get into how many ports the original games themselves got. I'm fairly certain this won't be the last remake either.

Now that I got that bit of nonsence out of the way let's move on to the review.

Story

The island of Esteria which is known for its trade in silver has been cut off from mainland Europe by a phenomenon called the stormwall for the last six months. Enter Adol Christin, a 17 year old young man with a passion for adventure and measuring women and little boys. He sails to Esteria from the port town of Promarock (or Promalock depending on the translation) but his boat gets caught in the stormwall and he shipwrecks off the coast of the island. He is found by villagers and taken to the nearby town's clinic. This is where the game starts. From here on cue battles with monsters, ancient civilizations, saving the world and the usual business when it comes to JRPGs.

Overall the story is not a groundbreaking epic that will shock you with amazing plot twists, but it is really well written and will suck you in if you take your time with it. Even the most trivial NPCs usually have something new and interesting to say as the story moves forward (this is something Nihon Falcom does a lot). Ys II takes place immediately after Ys I, so my recommendation is to play both games in one go. There's also a bit of humour added by XSEED which fits quite well since it's put in the right places and doesn't feel forced.

muh grafix

If you've read the nonsence at the top or looked at the screenshots you should already know what to expect in terms of graphics. Enhancements or not you're looking at slightly improved visuals from a 1997 Windows game. That said Chronicles does have a nifty feature where you can pick from the original PC interface or the PSP one as well as picking between the original late 90s anime artstyle or the more modern artstyle for the character portraits. That's all there is to be said about the graphics, wether you like them or not is up to you, but I wouldn't judge the game based on looks alone.

PS: There is no FPS lock, so stop whining, you babies.

Music

INCREDIBLY BIASED OPINION INCOMING
As far as I'm concerned Falcom Sound Team JDK are musical gods and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise.

With that out of the way, you have the option to pick from three different renditions of the soundtrack in the options menu (or just mod in whatever the hell you want because PC). The original PC-88 soundtrack from 1987, the PC Complete soundtrack from 2001 or the new Chronicles soundtrack from 2009. All three are great, though which one you go with depends on you. My personal recommendation is to mod the turbografx-16 audio in and enjoy one of the best versions of the soundtrack (why they never bothered to use it again is beyond me), some dude posted a mod for both games on the forums, you can find it if you look around.

Long story short: Music is 11/10.

Gameplay

While the rest of the games in the series are more traditional in terms of combat, Ys I & II are more of an acquired taste. The reason for this is because unlike most action RPGs at the time here you don't press a button to attack enemies. Instead you ram into them (slightly off center), that's it. In Ys II you get some spells which allow you to attack at range but the meat of the combat is once again dryhumping things with your sword (hence why a lot of people call it the bumper cars system).

Personally I wouldn't call the lack of an attack button a bad thing since in this case it makes the combat LIGHTNING FAST. I'm not even joking, you'll be murdering masses of monsters with such rapid speed it'll make someone like Guts look like a pansy in comparison (you don't mess with Adol Christin, the guy's a walking apocalypse). It also makes the usual grinding in JRPGs almost nonexistant which for me is a plus. I don't hate it mind you, but it gets stale fast if the game relies on it too much. Anyway on normal difficulty you'll be swimming in cash and exp before you know it.

The boss battles are the highlight of the series. In Ys I they are mostly hit and miss. Some are really good and there are others like Vagullion aka THAT !@(*$^ BAT and Dark Fact known as Dalk Fukt in Japan (if you manage beat him on nightmare mode you have the full right to rub that in everyone's faces because you earned it). Things get much better in Ys II, but it's also the better game. Ys I is essentially a glorified prologue but you shouldn't skip it since you'll miss half the story.

TL;DR

This is where the Ys series started from. The games are great but they are not for everyone. However if you do try them out and end up liking them you'll be in for one hell of a ride you won't soon forget.

Ys I is a simple, fast-paced action game disguised as an RPG. Maybe too simple for a generation who're used to combo systems, collecting a dozen new abilities, and other new hot features adopted by the genre (and later games in the series). But I like that simplicity! It's a comfortable old friend of a game, with just enough interesting use of its one mechanic (ram the other guy off-center) to last the duration of the adventure.

And then you can play Ys II, which throws in a bunch more toys to play with in a larger world!

Make sure you play in the original 4:3 mode: the zoomed-in mode doesn't quite match the aspect ratio of the original game window, and areas designed around it will feel cramped if you have to scroll more.

Ys I & II, being the first two games in the long-running Ys series, have had quite a number of releases over the years. It’s hit a number of different platforms, including the PC88, TurboGrafx, PC, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, and now PC, each with their own tweaks to the game to fit the platform they were released on. XSEED Games and Falcom, who started their partnership with the release of Ys Seven, have set out on bringing the definitive version of Ys I & II to the PC. The question is, how does this port in the long list of existing ports fare?

Originally released in the late 1980s, Ys I & II definitely shows their roots in their story presentations. You play the role of Adol Christin, a (now very well-known) red-haired adventurer who sets off on a journey of excitement and ends up washing up in a nearby coastal city where he learns of demon attacks which are driving the country’s citizens into hiding. As you progress through the game, it becomes clear that things aren’t as simple as they seem, with items called the Books of Ys being collected as you progress through your journey. These later become important to unraveling exactly what is causing this country’s plight and showing how to set things right.

Most memorable for its combat, Ys I and II combine all the elements of a traditional JRPG: towns, shops, NPCs, equipment, character levels, exploration, and even some minor side quests and secrets. Ys I is more simplistic than its sequel, but both games are strikingly similar and tell two parts of the same narrative, even if those parts are two nearly identical story arcs. Each game can be beaten in less than ten hours, both have moments of great frustration, and they both climax in thrilling and memorable bosses. Ys I and II may be most well known for their shared "bump" combat system in which our hero Adol collides with enemies to injure them (and to be injured by them). The lack of an attack button and Adol's swift running speed make the action so frantic as to be absurd, and at times I found the red-haired sprite's action downright hilarious. I was skeptical and critical at first, but I learned to enjoy the simple combat, particularly during boss fights, which require much more thought than the dull standard enemies. Unfortunately, diagonal attacks are so overpowered in Ys II that regular enemies are slain with ease, and both games suffer from clumsy menus and balance issues.

Being that this is an older RPG, there are some grinding issues present in this release. Ys I, being merely a prelude to Ys II, only allows for Adol to level up to Level 10. Levels control whether you win or lose in Ys I, and at times you’ll have to grind in the initial dungeons to get through some of the bosses. This issue becomes a bit worse in Ys II, which ups the level cap to 55, but lessens the EXP gained from enemies as you level up. This requires players to, at times, spend time farming enemies in one area of a dungeon, lest they get instantly killed by enemies in a later part which Adol can’t touch with gaining more levels and grabbing enough gold to get the best weapons for that period in the game. Some of the latter bosses are particularly unfair in this regard, forcing players to gain 3-5 levels above what the enemies are at just to get through the boss fight with a sliver of life remaining. While this only occurs in a few parts of the game, it’s still an annoyance that could have been fixed with a few slight tweaks by Falcom for this release. Players who enjoy a challenge will find no problems with this though.

As both titles were released back in the 1980s, the RPG mantra of including key items in obscure places holds true. Numerous times in Ys I players will be unable to progress through the story because they forgot to talk to or walk into a specific story event that was either barely mentioned or not mentioned at all. While Ys II fixes this for the most part, there’s one key item in one of the final dungeons which requires players to go to a unmentioned room instead of a house in town, which is where players would assume it was located due to the game’s dialogue. The game could have greatly benefited from some streamlining for newer fans of the series.

Even with those negatives, as with most Ys titles, the first thing players will notice is the game’s soundtrack, which like in Oath and Seven, runs circles around most other games. The soundtrack, composed by video game music legend Yuzo Koshiro of Etrian Odyssey fame, along with Falcom stalwart Mieko Ishikawa, is easily the shining gem of this compilation. As explain before, Ys I & II have appeared on numerous platforms in the past, so the game compliments this by allowing players to choose between three different versions of the music.

One of the most impressive parts of Ys Chronicles outside of the soundtrack has to be the game’s storyline and translation. For a title which was released back in the 1980s, the story still stands shoulders above many other titles of that era, as well as some of the RPG hits of the 1990s. This combined with the music and the general artistic presentation of the game makes for some very heartwarming moments. The main storyline was translated in a way which feels authentic without falling into the “ye olde” trap that most remakes of classic RPGs fall into. XSEED also threw in a couple pop culture jokes in some of the more obscure areas of the game for those who take the time to check out everything.

Despite some of the negatives I've listed here, I thoroughly enjoy playing through these adventures. Being a long time Ys fan I owed it to myself to play the adventures that started them all. There is magic in Ys, and everyone should get a chance to see it.

Highly Recommended

Another remake of the old Nihon Falcom action RPG classic, which finally brings this great game to english speaking PC gamers.

This version seems to improve everything beyond the previous versions (at least the ones I played, that is the Sega Master System version from the early 90s and the Turbo Duo release from a few years later), with one exception - it doesn't have voice acting, unlike the Turbo Duo release, which did have some (not much, but still...).

The control is great, the graphics are up-to-date, and the awesome soundtrack is at its best, as usual. The game is relatively short (8-10 hours if you've beat it before, but could take much longer for first timers), but offers plenty of fun.

This is really one of my favorite games.

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.

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.

These 2 games are very good. The story is connected from YS Origin, YS1, and YS2. I suggest you play from YS Origin. Finish Toal Cain storyline to reveal the hidden plot. Then, you play YS1 and YS2.

It's been a long time I haven't played games with such good story. Good job, Falcom!

PS: Please bring the YS4, YS5, and YS7 to Steam too. I will definitely buy and play them !

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.
