Does Not Involve the Letter X

RPGamer
26 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Though it's crossed the radar of relatively more people on the other side of the Pacific in recent years, the size and longevity of the Ys series is still startling to contemplate. It began in the late 80s, and unlike a lot of its then-peers is still alive in the public eye.

Ys Origin

Destructoid
25 August 2012
  • Summary: I love Falcom, I love the Ys series, and I love action RPGs, but this is my first time experiencing it all on a PC. The recent PSP releases have all been fantastic, but Sony's portable is on its last leg, and while I'd love to dive into a Ys game on the Vita, it's a bit too early for that.

An Ys-y Introduction

RPGamer
18 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Ys Origin might not need a lightning-fast PC to run, but that doesn't mean the game is any less exciting. This 2006 Japanese action RPG has just received its first official English release on Steam via XSEED Games.

Expert Review

RPGFan
8 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Origin may have taken over five years to finally come out in English, but the wait was certainly worth it.
  • Pros: Excellent gameplay with fantastic bosses and good controls, awesome soundtrack, nice artwork
  • Cons: Three similar playthroughs needed to experience everything, dated environments, playing with a gamepad is highly recommended.

Ys Origin PC Review

DarkZero
10 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I love how the PC is allowing people to embrace its gaming history by constantly getting older titles updated to work on newer hardware and operating systems. Places like Steam open up a new world for recent PC gamers to dabble in these relics.

  • Conclusion: Entendons-nous bien, Ys Origin est un bon jeu à tous les niveaux. On peut toutefois regretter un manque de possibilités dans l'évolution du gameplay au cours du jeu, et surtout la lassitude qui peut gagner le joueur dans les parties additionnelles.
  • Pros: Un bon défouloir , Musiques dans le ton , Du challenge , Trois scénarios sympas à suivre , Bonne rejouabilité...
  • Cons: ... mais un peu trop répétitif , Techniquement dépassé

Y´s Origin - Test

Eurogamer
14 June 2012
  • Summary: Y´s Origin ist ein sechs Jahre altes PC-Japan-Prequel zu einer Serie, die hier nie wirklich zu viel Ruhm kam. Wir sind ganz tief in Fan-Service-Territorium. Ich werde mich hüten, es generell jedem als großartiges Action-RPG verkaufen zu wollen.
