Ys: Memories of Celceta Review

PlayDevil
18 March 2014
  • Summary: " Ys: Memories of Celceta " is an incredibly fun game that is far too easy to lose hours to. It's very much at home on the PS Vita that utilizes the unique features of the system sensibly. The quick bursts of lightning fast action suit the handheld to a tee, and it's addictive gameplay makes it effortless to see this one through to its conclusion. Even after the credits roll there's plenty to do with an enticing New Game Plus option daring you to do it all over again.

Ys: Memories of Celceta

Playstation Illustrated
29 January 2014
  • Excerpt: A while back, I reviewed Legacy of Ys: Books I & II for the DS, which was a port of an older RPG to the DS system but was ported beautifully. Now there is a new one called Ys: Memories of Celceta . If you’re wondering where it fits in the series canon, it falls after Book II and before Book III .

Ys: Memories of Celceta Review – PlayStation Vita

Game Chronicles
26 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Ys (pronounced eece as in fleece) is one of those RPG franchises that hasn’t really gotten the fair shake as far as being known about here in the States. Whether it’s the commercial success of other franchises hogging all the limelight or the limited releases that hit these shores, Ys has found a home over the years heavily with PlayStation and its portable systems.

Review: Ys: Memories of Celceta (Sony PlayStation Vita)

Diehard GameFAN
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Adol returns in Ys: Memories of Celceta , a Vita reimagining of 1993′s Ys IV . Don’t let the age of the original story fool you: the end product barely resembles either of the original games, and has more in common with Ys Seven than any of the older titles. It takes advantage of the system hardware, but not so much so that it feels forced.

Ys: Memories of Celceta

DarkStation
20 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Ys: Memories of Celceta is one of the best games available for the Vita and a fine action RPG in its own right. Past some dated visuals and a sparse story are enticing battles and exciting exploration that can suck you in with a ruthless efficiency. If these kinds of character progression treadmills are your thing, don’t let it pass you by.

  • Conclusion: A fantastic action-adventure role-playing game, Ys Memories of Celceta is a great game to use to introduce yourself to the Ys franchise. It's not your typical AAA title, but it definitely plays like one.

Ys: Memories of Celceta (Vita) Review

14 January 2014
  • Summary: Overall, was a great finish to 2013 for the Vita. The gameplay is solid and offers plenty to do. In addition, the story, while slow at the start, is definitely worth experiencing in the end. Hopefully, XSEED keeps localizing these titles, as they’ve done another solid job here.

Ys: Memories of Celceta (Vita)

ccgr.org
5 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Ys: Memories of Celceta is the latest in the 25-year running Ys series (pronounced 'Eees').  This is a replacement for several games made by different developers called Ys IV.  There were two games back from the SNES and TurboGrafx-16 days, titled 'Ys IV: Mask of the Sun' and 'Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys' that claimed that title, and there was a Playstation 2 era remake called 'Ys IV: Mask of the Sun ~a new theory~'.
  • Pros: Excellent, fluid, real-time combat action; fun, likeable characters; solid, lengthy adventure; good replay value; fabulous music
  • Cons: Skill system feels a little random; leveling up skills seems to take a very long time

Memories of a Better Time

RPGamer

  • Excerpt: While the order can be confusing to keep track of, the Ys series is great about having each game be a standalone experience. Sure you're likely to get more out of the games if you know backstory, but most of the Ys titles are fine to jump into cold. Ys: Memories of Celceta is no exception to this, as it is a great point to start with the series. Easy to play and featuring a great cast of characters, if you ever wanted to dive into Ys , this is as good a place as any.
