Summary: As far as content goes, none in my opinion have surpassed the original 80's CD-ROM version of the game. I had no idea that this game would later be re-released again on the PSP or I wouldn't have bothered with this one. Still, if you don't have a PSP, and you have any DS, and you've never played YS before, then do get this game. It's still enjoyable, just not great.
Summary: If you have ever played one of the ys games, on snes or other, this is a great port of a great game. While the boss fights are hard, you can save before them and try again. if you enjoy rpgs and hack and slash adventures this is one not to miss.
Summary: I had ordered this game on Amazon sometime last year and finally got around to playing it. I also got the CD soundtrack with it. I didn't realize that this game was actually a remake from over 20 years ago, so I don't really know the difference between the two. This game starts off as having to talk with various people about where to go on your adventure. You will eventually need to gain 5 sets (each) of swords, armor, shields, and rings.
Summary: I had the first Ys as a kid, and I loved it, I played it a great deal, so it's just a flood of good memories to play this one. I have no idea how much has changed, since the alteration of the graphics from what I remember has me feeling like it's a whole new game in many ways. For all that I played it a great deal, I find myself only vaguely connecting the two games, and for the people who liked the old fashioned action games like this, it's a must have.
Summary: The graphics depend on the tastes of each player, but if you are from those who enjoy RPG's of old, then this game you liked a lot in its graphics, besides that the game lets you choose whether to play the older version or the newer (speaking cast of characters and graphics and images). Out of all, very incredible.
Summary: Maybe will not be the best games' Ys, maybe will not be the best remakes that could be done but... still beeing Ys. And is coming 2 Ys (hardcore games) in 1 bundle. You will love that retro style.
Summary: First off this is only fun to play if you owned a turbo graphics 16. The experience smacks of old school boring gameplay which for some reason was the best thing ever back in the day. They have upgraded the graphics and music for the transition to the ds. But they left the game play the same. My biggest complaint is when you toch a npc in town or whatever you automatically start talking to them.
