Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

Just RPG
25 April 2007
  • Excerpt: In late February 2006, Konami released Ys: The Ark of Napishtim for Sony’s PSP. This PSP title is actually a port of the PlayStation 2 version that was released nearly a year earlier. So, I guess the real question is how good is this port?

RPG LAND

  • Excerpt: When Adol washes ashore and awakens on the mysterious island of Canaan, the first words out of his mouth are, “And now my series is also in a PSP port?” It sure is, Adol. Now sit your ass down while this mother loads. And stay a while, because loading times between zones are hell-ass long.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is This is a charming RPG for the PSP. The reason being, there aren’t many ‘good’ RPGs for the PSP to begin with. YS The Ark of Napishtim is an ‘old skool’ RPG at its heart, with an engaging story line, automatic levelling up and satisfying hack-and-slash action.

Portable Review
12 May 2006
  • Excerpt: This week was the first time I’ve ever picked up an RPG on either the DS or the PSP. Sadly, on both accounts I’ve been completely disappointed. Instead of just leaving The Ark of Napishtim as it was or creating an all-new title, Konami decided to bring it over to the PSP.

[Mini-Review] Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

TotalPlayStation.com
4 April 2006
  • Conclusion: Funky load times aside, this is the exact kind of game the PSP needed; an action RPG with a decent story, memorable tunes, a solid progression and leveling core and enough meat to make it a console experience gone portable.
