YS: The Ark of Napishtim

Playstation Illustrated
28 April 2007
  • Excerpt: The first word - maybe the last word for some players - on YS: The Ark of Napishtim is "LOADING." For all the good things one can say about the game, the constant loading is incredibly annoying, a central piece of the game that may make The Ark of Napishtim unplayable for some. With that caveat out of the way, let's focus on the positive.

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? While it is nice to see a new RPG added to the PSP collection, if given the choice between the PS2 and PSP versions, you might want to pick the PS2.

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim - PSP Review

About.com
28 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Ys: The Ark of Napishtim is a charming action RPG. Unfortunately, the PSP is needing more than a port of a PS2 game to fill the RPG void the system is currently suffering. While Ys PSP brings plenty of new content to the table, including minigames and videos, the game isn't suited for mobile playing. The game is too demanding time-wise to make this an appealing game on the road. Ys: The Ark of Napishtim is fun, but maybe not the best choice for a PSP game.
  • Pros: The PSP version has several exclusive features, Solid Japanese action RPG, Graphically as good as the PS2 version, The PSP version has several exclusive features, Solid Japanese action RPG, Graphically as good as the PS2 version
  • Cons: High learning curve with steep consequences, Not suited to short gaming sessions, Long load times, High learning curve with steep consequences, Not suited to short gaming sessions, Long load times

[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.

  • Excerpt: Konami наконец-то выпустила RPG для PSP ! И эта игра является частью довольно известной серии игр Ys . Если начистоту, это порт с PS2 двухгодичной давности. Для начала о сюжете. Наш протагонист, Adol Christin , попадает на необитаемый остров, который даже не отмечен на карте. Оказывается этот остров не таким уж и необитаемым, а скорее даже все до наоборот, а его жители не очень-то гостеприимны и вежливы.

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

Level 7
21 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Det ser riktigt bra ut. Frameraten kan sjunka vid några få tillfällen när det är mycket som händer på skärmen. Den hämmas av laddningssekvenserna, men i övrigt får man en känsla av närhet på grund av den lilla spelvärlden. Det kommer att ta dig ungefär tio timmar att springa igenom Ys: The Ark of Napishtim, vilket måste ses som klart godkänt. Men jag tror inte att det är något man spelar om flera gånger.
  • Pros: Grafiken, Kontrollen
  • Cons: Laddningssekvenserna, Språkvalet
