Summary: The first two games in Nihon Falcom's Ys series would definitely be frontrunners for the Guinness World Record for most ports and/or remakes of a videogame, seeing releases on various kinds of computers in Japan not to mention releases on the Famicom, TurboGrafx-16, Microsoft Windows, Sega Saturn,...
Summary: I've been a fan of the later games in the series, but I never really check out the earlier entries. When I did, I knew nothing of the bumping mechanic and the general lack of direction common of games of that period. That made some areas tough to complete.
Summary: These games are old school rpg bliss. Worth every penny I spent, comes with the first and second game in the series. The only reason I rate it lower than a 10 is that the game is not that long, and it has lack of variation in the equipped weapons/armors looks.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I haven't gotten a chance to play this revision of Ys I&II yet. My star ratings were based on the DS version. I believe the PSP version is better, but I don't know that. The two games are fairly short, old fashioned, head-cracking heroism.
Summary: When you're young, impressionable, and watch a movie for the first time, you might think it's the best movie ever made! Years later, you realize that maybe it wasn't quite as good as you first thought. The same thing goes with Ys Chronicles.
