A good pickup

  • 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.

Well worth the money but seems a bit dated

  • Summary: To preface this review I didn't play any of the Ys games when they originally came out so I don't have any sense of nostalgia towards this title. The gameplay is very simple and the plot is a bit cliche (you need to get a neat sword and save the land) but overall it is a fun game. I spent about $20 on it and it comes with two games which can either be played in classic mode or with the touch screen and a cd with music on it. Well worth it at that price.

Solid DS RPG

Habib, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: This game is going to appeal mainly to fans of oldschool RPG's, and I might add that this game is a little bit of an oddball for a couple of reasons. First of all, even though the DS has several RPG's available for it, I found that a lot of DS RPG's tend to be lacking in content and substance. While this game is old fashioned (don't expect an overly complex plot), I already found it to be relatively meaty.

A good remake

John J. Guida, Amazon
3 April 2009
  • Summary: This package is a good buy for people who enjoy old school RPG gameplay. If you're into fancy sphere grids and dialogue that's voiced... then this game isn't for you. The graphics are a little on the basic side (ie 16-bit character sprites traveling around PS1 style landscapes). The music has been remixed, however that's kind of a mixed bag. On one hand YES it sounds aesthetically better and yet it lacks that catchy feeling the original music had.

Greater than FF

G. Lutz, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I love the DS and I've had my share of typical RPG's (Final fantasy) but the best thing I love about this game is the "no-holds-barred" action. No fight sequences or turn by turn battling, all you do is experience the joy of immediate run and slash gaming. I felt typical RPG's took too long and felt too formulaic. This game is along the lines of Zelda which is a King in the gaming families.

A faithful remake of the original

Sasuke Mishima "Sasuke", Amazon
4 March 2009
  • Summary: I had pre-order this game and play it non-stop. I had to say unlike the original Turbo CD version (which it's already available for download on Wii's VC), you actually got two faithful remakes of two of Falcom best action RPGs. If fast paced sword ramming gameplay is what you love, then you'll be right at home here as that feature is still intact though you'll require to use the stylus for that but if you prefer the usual hack and slash gameplay (Legend of Zelda or...

Great game for "Old School RPG" fans.

E. Vallee "Digital Sith", Amazon
13 March 2009
  • Summary: Legacy of Ys Books I & II is basically a compilation of the first two games in the Ys series. Both games came out a long time before Final Fantasy 7 brought RPG console games into the mainstream, and this game still feels like it was brought out of a time capsule into today's market. Yes, the graphics look better than they did back then, but it still suffers from a lack of innovation of current RPGs. That's not to say that it is a bad game, far from it.
