    Problem with X-Seed games is that they're lacking in the imaginative part, especially the RPG series. Ys 7 on the PSP is a prime example, the plot is yet another typical type and surprisingly short, the characters are as memorable as the monsters I killed (I feel nothing for them) and the soundtrack is just... solid at best. The standout feature is obviously the hack and slash gameplay,Problem with X-Seed games is that they're lacking in the imaginative part, especially the RPG series.

    Along with being better suited to the PSP's capabilities than the previous Ys VI port, Seven also overhauls some major aspects of the series. [Issue#105, p.120]

    One of the best action role-players on any portable - if it wasn't for the appallingly banal plot and characters.

    Despite these minor miscues, Ys Seven proves that you can tweak a classic game series without ruining it in the process.
