Summary: I had never played through a Ys game until I played this (I had tried Ys III on the SNES as a kid but it was too challenging for me to get anywhere)! I will say Books I and II are my favorite action RPGs after having played this. I'd like to note that these games tie in to eachother, so once you beat Book 1 you'll want to immediately start Book 2.
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: This is my first time playing a Ys game on any console, and I am completely blown away. It made me feel as if I was back playing Zelda for N64 and GameBoy. The music is incredible, especially in the dungeons. The gameplay is your classic awesome sword slashing, like Zelda. You can buy/sell weapons, armor, and other items to upgrade your character, find chests in dungeons containing useful items. All that good stuff. The graphics are perfect for this game.
Summary: First off, the two 'books' are fairly short games overall. Don't expect some epic 20+ hour adventures. That's a good thing though, because seriously, who has time for that? This is just some great old-school action-RPG gameplay updated for the DS both graphically as well as musically. Perhaps the best part is the value. You get two classic action-RPGs, plus a soundtrack CD with a ton of music from the games. If you're into that stuff, that's sorta a big deal too.
Summary: Ys 1+2 is a classic game, there have been mixed reviews on it but I think that the game play, story, and music of the gave haven't aged with time. I only recently discovered Ys but I fell in love with one thing about the game. The music, if you pre-ordered the game it came with a free sound track and for a good reason, the music in the game is mind blowing. The beats and sounds have stayed the same for years.
Summary: Played this game for the TurboDuo. Can't wait to play this updated version. This is the game that got me hooked on RPG;s. This game progresses nicely and you really feel you are getting more & more powerful. You don't even get to use magic until you reach book 2. Towards the end your magic is so powerful it tracks the enemies! If only all RPG's were this fun. Tight game.
