The 80's were not fun

joemama, Amazon
17 August 2011
  • 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.

Classic Ys action with bad new graphics

Store Hadji, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I'm very surprised the "upgraded" graphics in this are so poor. The 2D sprites look okay, though there are very few frames of animation. The 3D/2D world and dungeons look terrible, with the same little patches of texture repeated over and over to the point of inducing a headache and such locales as lakes and items such as tables being represented by horribly jagged triangles. The color palette is seriously ugly too. What gives?

  • Summary: Still figuring it out. I think I will like it as soon as I learn how to play it properly. I'm 65 so that gives me a handycap on some games.

Fun remake that is fast paced

S. Moon, Amazon
7 March 2009
  • Summary: I've played earlier versions, both on original systems and emulators, and I never get very far because of the odd fighting system. Basically in earlier versions you just run into enemies to harm them, and you have to run into them perfectly or they hurt you. This remake fixes that, you actually bush a button to swing your sword. I died two times figuring that out. After that it was great. I really like the music, it's true to the original, kinda rock music.
