  • Summary: **For anyone who views this soon: Ys Origin is 50% off ($10) on steam for the next 25 hours. Don't wait! Grab it!** I'm new to the Ys series and I fell in love with the game immediately. It's a solid mix of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Torchlight, and Disgaea for those who are familiar with those franchises. The controls are fully configurable between keyboard, mouse, and game controller; you can have all of one or a mix.

  • Summary: Falcom produces the best all age all gender ARPGs (The Ys series is the most popular one). The gameplay is smooth, button smashing and can be challenging. Like all Falcom ARPG games, the storyline is not long. But you can play with 3 different characters who have different perspective in the storyline. Ys origin is directly linked to the original Ys 1 and 2. The story happened in the past, and I am afraid that there is no Adol(The legendary red hair guy) this time.

  • Summary: Amazing! It reminds me of playing an old hard game when things used to be difficult (when on highest difficulty setting) I'm addicted so far. This is definetley worth getting!

  • Summary: Ys Origin is an amazing game in which all RPG players must get, if you are new to the series, Ys Origin is the best game to start at since it's a fully fledged prequel which explains to you the origins of the upcoming games. The gameplay and music will keep you hooked into the game and the amazing replay value and difficulty will bring appeal to players who usually dont enjoy RPGs or usually shy away from RPGs most of the time.

  • Summary: I noticed not many people are capable of writing a proper review, so I had to chime in. Ys Origin is NOT a console experience. Ys Origin is a PC exclusive. Although Falcom has recently turned to the psp and vita after they lost their PC distributor, they developed almost exclusively PC since the early 80s. The Zelda feeling people are getting should be flipped: the Ys series, which branched off from Dragonslayer, began in 1987. The first LoZ was released in 1986.

  • Summary: The graphics are old but still pretty, game play is awesome but has lack of combos, music is good on boss fights, playing on normal will force you to farm levels to beat bosses, old school scenarios and pretty good story, you need to configure the hotkeys if your planing to use a gamepad, game is perfect.

  • Summary: So far, so good! I'm getting my old school fix on my PC. The graphics are pretty, the action is quick. It's that Zelda/chrono trigger arpg formula that works so well. 360 game pad is supported out of the box, although the start button or select button don't bring up inventory. I'm sure I can map it, just saying. I love cranking the resolution and aa on these games, and this one responds well. The character models are pretty. The effects are solid.

  • Summary: The game is a quick-paced, button mashing adventure. It has a very arcade-like feel, which adds to the charm. The graphics feel dated, and two-dimensional at times, but this game is obviously not going for ultra-realism. However, in an odd way, it brings that nostalgic feel. It is a very average game, but sometimes, average works.

  • Summary: I hhave played Japanese Version serval years ago, Falcom at that time made a lot of YS. YSO is the last one. YSO is the better than YSF and YS6. The great boss fight design, and three charactors have three totally different combat systems. Falcom also involved some shooting game elements into this game.
