Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

  • 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.

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

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. In doing so, they’ve reduced a decent game to probably the most tedious and annoying game I’ve ever played.

  • Excerpt: Ys: Ark of Napishtim is the latest iteration of Konami's anime-RPG franchise. This time Ys makes its debut on the PSP, bringing a PS2-style traditional RPG experience to the best little PS2 emulator out there. The game makes the transition from home console to portable title fairly well, except for the PSP's monstrous load times and a complete lack of any portable-friendly game pacing. Get the good and the bad on Ark of Napishtim in Matt's review.
  • Pros: ups: Interesting boss fights, cool adventure feel.
  • Cons: downs: Long and frequent load times, pacing is not friendly to portable play.

  • Conclusion: * This game requires your PSP's firmware to be at least version 2.50. The UMD disc contains an installer for version 2.50.

  • Summary: in allen Variationen kann zum Hass-Satz des Jahres werden, wenn man ihn zum hundertsten Mal lesen muss. Ys 6 ist durch dieses technische Handicap leider spielerisch zu "disqualifizieren". Andere Spiele wie Tales of Eternia bekommen es doch auch hin, also stellst sich nur die Frage: „Warum?“.
