Quote from: fraggore on April 23, 2013, 03:21:19 PMhello everyone i have recently been playing the ys games and are wondering what people think of them. i have just played through Ys 1 and 2 again and after like 15 years i still really enjoyed playing then fun to play, so i thought i would try some of the other games and see if they were up to the quality of 1 and 2 so here we go.
Ys 3 i gave it a go mmm not liking it scrolling is a bit crap plays ok but just doesn't have sparkle that 1 and 2 have so should i moved on or stick with it.
Ys 4 got my self a translated copy put it in the duo first thoughts ohhh this looks nice a bit improvement on the first too, so proceeded to play enjoyable good music plays like the first game seems good fun, so i have played it for about 10 maybe 12 hours just got past the stone\ice guardian the one where you have to hit the guy in ice spinning around pain in the arse had to do some serious grinding to get past him. its a good game but seems a bit lacking something can put my finger on it and i still think 1 and 2 are better, properly just me as from what i can see everyone loves it so i am i just missing something and should i stick with it ?.
Ys 5 haven't played.
Ys 6 only played it briefly looks good i got the pc version installed and ready to when i got time.
Ys 7 havent played it i hered its been released on pc so hope there is a translation at some point.
Ys origin just played through it have to say i loved it plays realy well cool guardians nice graphics and there a really good translation for it.
Ys The Oath in Felghana remakee of 3 i believe i have this on my pc haven't got around to playing it much but it looks really nice.
Ys Memories of Celceta vita havent played as i dont own a vita but looks pretty dame good i want to play it.
Ys Strategy ds havent seen or played it so is it worth getting i do have a ds.
Ys Chronicles Plus I and 2 remakes of the first 2 ys games and a re branding and touch up on the first released Ys chronicles for pc, both games look very nice and have just been put on steam translated i got them installed and plan to play through both.
I know there is a few other games don't know much about them or is they have been translated here is the list.
Ys V: Lost Kefin, Kingdom of Sand Ps2
Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki: Alternative Saga Psp
Ys IV: Mask of the Sun - A New Theory Ps2
Ys IV: Mask of the Sun Super famicom
Ys V: Ushinawareta Suna no Miyako Kefin Super famicom
Thew that was a big list, so have any of you played some of the games what ones do you think are best, whats been translated, are the pc engine\tg 16 games still considered the best and any recommendation on what ones i should play.
I know a lot of these games are not on the engine but that where it started for me my love of Ys games tho thinking about it i played 1 on the master system first, but it was the tg16 version that got me hooked as i must of played through 1 and 2 like 15 times so would be cool to here your opinions on the Ys series.
P.S i know it started on the PC-8801 but i don't live in japan or understand moon language i should try and learn.
