Ys: The Oath in Felghana (PSP)

 

Adol the Red is truly a hero for the ages. Not only does he appear to save the day in each new Ys title, but he also returns to the past to safeguard those he's already freed. Ys: The Oath in Felghana was originally released for the PC as a remake of...

Y's This So Hard?!

Ys Seven and Ys Oath in Felghana share exactly two letters (Ys) and two characters (red-headed hero Adol is back with his meat-headed companion Dogi) — the differences end there. You spend the whole game as sword-wielding Adol, who gains magic powers...

Ys: The Oath in Felghana Review

 

Adol the Red has some trouble finding his footing, but his sword remains true in this remake of an Ys classic.

Powerful bosses make you work for your supper ; Magic and melee combine for fast-paced, efficient action ; Scalable difficulty suits button mashers and experts alike

Unmapped dungeons leave you running in circles ; 3D environments don't translate depth well

The world is filled with foes awaiting Adol's onslaught. You can carry yourself forward in a flurry of sword strikes, and you're able to perform both a jumping thrust upward and a strong downward stab, the latter of which has a chance to stun those who...

Niche distributors XSEED seem to have found their flagship in the epic world of the plucky red-headed do-gooder Adol Christin. And while Dragon's Lair may hold some kind of record for most ports of a single game, Ys must be in the running for most...

Walking the fine line between streamlined and simplistic.

Simple yet robust control scheme, plenty of secrets to find, great boss encounters

Boss fights take multiple attempts to conquer, you have probably already played this game on another platform

Ys: The Oath in Felghana

 

In 1989 the world was introduced to the third installment of the Ys series with Ys III: Wanderers from Ys. In 2005, Nihon Falcom Corporation took Ys III and did a complete overhaul on the game, remaking it and updating the features within. Move to 2010...

Visually beautiful, great music, fast streamlined action gameplay with RPG features, tons of replay potential

Some graphics seem a bit too small at times, the game's bosses are rather challenging

Expert review by:

Ys: The Oath in Felghana Review

 

The latest installment in Falcom and XSEED's Ys series of action-RPGs is a fast-paced, easy to grasp blast, despite its relatively short length and generic story.

Fast-paced and easy to grasp action-RPG gameplay, challenging but not unfair difficulty level, extremely cool boss encounters

Short length, generic story, samey backgrounds and lack of minimap feature makes some dungeon exploration confusing

Ys: The Oath in Felghana (PSP) Review

 

Another chapter in the Ys saga is released for the PSP, making that three in one year. Has XSEED bitten off more than they can chew, or is this another gem for your collection?

XSEED Games has been treating PSP gamers this year to a healthy dose of the Ys series. Without taking much of a break from their last release, they're delivering Ys: The Oath in Felghana, which takes gamers a few steps back in the series to help expand...

Did somebody call for a boy scout?

2D + D = 3D!; Combat is thoroughly satisfying; Abilities are added steadily; Dungeons, puzzles, platforming, oh my!; Varied environments

Where's a sidekick when you need one?; Who am I saving now

Expert review by:

Ys: The Oath in Felghana- PSP

 

Despite its flaws, The Oath in Felghana is the perfect game for the PSP. Enjoyable combat and dungeon crawling is its own reward. Having fun while you're playing the game will easily make the somewhat mundane plot and characters fade. Though much of...
