Impression: Legacy of Ys: Books I & II

  • Excerpt: To be honest, when I first turned on Legacy of Ys: Books I & II I expected it to be disgustingly ugly. Call me pessimistic, call me a hater of the DS's 3D capabilites — it's the truth. So I was shocked when the remade 3D world of Ys looked decent.

A legacy worth exploring

  • Conclusion: Half of the items you find in the game are useless unless you're bored and want to screw around. I never once found a reason to use "magic of stop-time".
  • Pros: Getting to finally see how Adol Christin became a cult icon in the world of gaming.
  • Cons: Wandering the temple at the end of Ys II for hours on end because it's so easy to get lost.

  • Summary: While Legacy of Ys is a solid remake of the 16-bit classics, that doesn't mean it holds up particularly well. The unique gameplay keeps the action fast and exciting, but the cliche story and silly cinemas leave a lot to be desired.

14 May 2009
  • Summary: When Ys Book I & II was first released on the TurboGrafx-CD it was considered the first must-own game for NEC's fledgling console. Although it was largely ignored by the U.S. consumer, game critics of the time hailed it as one of the greatest role-playing games ever made.

Gamer Limit
20 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Even the remake feels dated and may not appeal to the new generation of gamers. If you can ignore the archaic feel, you’ll find a good RPG at its core. There’s no compelling reason to buy Legacy of Ys if you own the originals.
