Great Game. Flawed, but great.

Summary: I actually had purchased Ys: Ark of Napishtim when I first got my PSP, I thought it looked like a neat title, and the gameplay was fabulous. I thought Kingdom Hearts had a rival to watch when that came to the PSP. Of course, the graphics are somewhat dated, but the story was self contained but carried on the overall Ys arc. I did let it slip by as more bigger, better titles came out for the PSP.
Summary: I have beaten the game, the final boss is not that hard (level 50 can beat them pretty easily) gameplay is good; upward/downward slash, dash slash are cool sword magic is cool as well, but only Lightning magic is practical (can hit enemies anywhere) story is decent and linear game control is OK, but you need to use analog pad a lot due to d-pad sucks the only thing is pretty annoying is "Now Loading...
Summary: This was a great game! Many hour of play, great incentinve to collect all of the items and max out your weapons, fun overall. Not a whole hell of a lot of imidiate replay value, but I can see myself playing it again in the future.
Summary: Arrived from Hitgaming in perfect condition and 7 days early. The loading times are rather long, but it only bothers me when it has to stop and access the UMD the moment you level-up or teleport somewhere, interrupting the effects. I think the frame-rate drops into the single digits in some areas. It seems to be a bit too much for the poor PSP. But if you're a Y's fan, it's not too bad and I happen to like it quite a bit.

Excerpt: "A few months ago, Hawkimus bought me a PSP. YS - The Ark of Napishtim (referred to herein as YS), was the first game I played and completed on it, so it seems fitting to write a review on the good and bad things about this game. Firstly, I should explain a few things. I am by no means a 'gamer', I enjoy gaming but tend to give up once something gets too difficult for me (or I get Hawkimus to complete the bit I am struggling on!). As YS was my first ...
Pros: Good story, graphics, sound and simple to pick up
Cons: Loading times are excessive, some moves difficult to execute
Summary: Zuerst mal muss ich sagen das ich mich immer habe abschrecken lassen von den stetigen Meckereien über die Ladezeiten. Aber gebau da war ich überrascht! Kein Plan ob ich nur anders empfinde oder vielleicht neuere PSP Modelle etwas schneller laden, aber mich haben die recht häufigen, aber nicht allzu lange dauernden Ladezeiten absolut nicht gestört. Ich las mal was im Schnitt von 15 Sekunden, aber dies ist definitiv nicht der Fall!
Excerpt: un gioco veramente divertente e intrigante, si presenta molto bene al giocatore, la grafica è molto originale e ben fatta, i nemici sono numerosi e non sono nascosti si vedono e si può decidere di combatterci oppure no, comunque meglio affrontarli anche p ...
