Did this earlier and thought I'd share it~

 

- Solid gameplay
- Not a lot of dungeon diversity
- Low enemy attack-type diversity
- Most bosses kinda simple/easy (including the final one)
- Grind-heavy
- Doesn't explain dash-jump in-game AFAIK which is lame (the ability itself is cool though)
- Not the best Ys game IMO, around Ys Seven level.
- Catastrophe mode was ok but again, poorly explained
- Music isn't bad but only has a few very good/memorable songs, OiF, Origin, Celceta, and VIII had way better soundtracks as a whole IMO.

Objective rating is about a 6.5/10, personal enjoyment rating is about a 7.5-8/10. (I like action, I like combat, I like the bits of exploration/platforming, I like talking to people, I like the RPG stuff, and I like all the references/relations to Adol's past adventures, so as a series fan I'm pretty biased...).

Current rough rankings of the games in the series:

Top tier:

- Ys Origin (Toal, then Hubert/Yunica about the same)

High tier:

- Ys VIII (suffers from excessive dialog/story-interruptions)
- Ys Celceta, Ys OiF (like them around the same)

Rest (great to good, nothing less than a 6-7/10 really)

- Ys I & II (good, but soooo old and soooo hard)
- Ys VI (bonus points for the voice acting in Konami's version)
- Ys Seven (Ys 7's gameplay was very rough, I didn't really like the team thing, and overall it just didn't leave a great impression on me, but wasn't bad, I don't think...)
- The rest (the other version of Ys IV and Ys V, it's been so long since I played them [and they're such short games] that I can't remember much about them and don't really have an opinion on them anymore :( )

I agree. I can't make a judgement on 4,5 and 8 as I have not played them. I enjoy Toal's mode in Origin more because it has a slightly higher risk reward ratio compared to the other two characters as Toal combos better for more damage, but takes more damage than the other two. It's more satisfying for me to play. I prefer OiF over Celceta simply because I prefer the final boss fight more.

yeah fair, I like Toal most too, I guess he's more of a glass cannon? he just looks cooler to play with too

 

I can see OiF > Celceta, I like both final bosses but Celceta's was maybe a bit anticlimactic in the grand scheme of things... the throwback solo Adol fights almost always get me though lolol, OiF had more of a classic adventure feel I guess, but Celceta had a bit more story I think? idk I felt like it was solid (way more so than Seven) and Karna is one of my favorite characters in the series, so it all about ties with OiF despite OiF being my first Ys game and stuff
