Ys I & II Chronicles

 

As Ys continues to be one of the most ported games of all time, modern gamers once again have the opportunity to catch up to this classic tale over 20 years in the making. I for one am delighted I didn't buy some of these JRPGs when they came out...

There's no school like the old school

A chance to replay the second best RPG on the Sega Master System, polished aesthetics and respect for the original games

Ys I & II Chronicles Review

 

XSEED's been on an Ys kick recently, and now it's revisiting the originals. Is that a good thing?

Ys I & II Chronicles- PSP

 

Ys Chronicles is an excellent gaming history lesson that will grow on you, should you allow it. However, this game simply isn't made of the same stuff that Felghana and SEVEN are. It feels antiquated and old-hat, but give it a chance, and you're likely...

Ys I & II Chronicles Review

 

Ys I & II Chronicles is worth a look by action RPG fans for the battle system alone, which is unlike any other and can be a real blast. Patient, retro-oriented gamers will gleefully endure the game's old-school relics, while others may want to play...

Ys I & II Chronicles PSP Review

 

As the name suggests, Ys I & II Chronicles features the first two games in the Ys series, two games of which are directly related to one another on a narrative level. It allows you to experience the beginnings of a long enduring series, albeit with...

For long term fans, Ys I & II Chronicles will serve as a welcome update of the two featured games, and such people will relish revisiting them in spruced up form, whilst others could find a pleasant history lesson covering the earliest period of the...
