    Ys Seven was already a solid experience and the upgrades that it has received for the PC make it even better. Like the Ark of Napishtim, bringing Seven over was a great idea as it continues Adol’s adventure for all those that never did either move to a console market or have the chance to pick it up back in the day.

    Ys Seven might look like an old game trying to appear new under some fresh coats of polish, but putting that aside, it's just as fun now as it was seven years ago.

    I was happy to have the chance to revisit Ys SEVEN with fresh eyes. Falcom and XSEED have pulled off an excellent port that runs like a dream even on my (far-)below spec laptop. As far as Ys titles available on PC, we're spoiled for choice, and this is an especially fine one to revisit.

    Ys Seven is the first entry in the long-running series to feature a variety of features and mechanics that have become a staple of the series, such as a bigger focus on the story and the party mechanic. While the renewed focus on story slows down the pace a bit, especially with its slow first few hours, the game's fast-paced combat system, engaging dungeon exploration, and fun boss battles make Ys Seven one of the best action role-playing games released in years. With some technical enhancements and a 60 FPS frame rate, the PC version is the definitive edition of Falcom's excellent RPG.

    Ys Seven may be quite old and rather basic, but it’s still an action-RPG that’s worthy of your time. If you’re after a light-hearted romp full of action that proves that solid gameplay is more important than snazzy visuals and complex mechanics, you won’t be disappointed.

    There’s something awfully disarming about Nihon Falcom’s straightforward and honest approach to the action RPG genre. All the trademarks of their user-friendliness are evident in Ys SEVEN too, like saving everywhere you want, an auto-map overlay and a fast travel introduced during the course of the adventure. But above all, Ys SEVEN hooks in with its simple and blistering fast gameplay, ensuring it’s always fun to do the necessary grinding to keep up with the numerous boss fights. I enjoyed every minute - and there were lots of those minutes - with Adol and his friends.

    Ys Seven is not a bad game but it misses the highs of what makes the Ys series great. It disappointingly conforms to more ordinary JRPG stylings and structure which work to blend the game in with its peers rather than distinguishing it from the crowd. The PC port is done well enough, and Ys Seven will work to whet your appetite for more with Ys VIII coming up on the horizon.

    相比于之前各作的瑕不掩瑜,本作各个方面实在难以恭维,特别是在战斗方面:编队组队实如鸡肋,克制系统影响游戏体验,战斗判定糟糕(超长的闪避估计就是为了弥补这一点,但却只是让游戏变得全程翻滚)。地图与任务的设计过于机械,前期容易产生厌倦,度过铺垫期后逐渐畅快。剧情方面始终让我觉得在自圆其说相比于之前各作的瑕不掩瑜,本作各个方面实在难以恭维,特别是在战斗方面:编队组队实如鸡肋,克制系统影响游戏体验,战斗判定糟糕(超长的闪避估计就是为了弥补这一点,但却只是让游戏变得全程翻滚)。地图与任务的设计过于机械,前期容易产生厌倦,度过铺垫期后逐渐畅快。剧情方面始终让我觉得在自圆其说,但纵观下来还算差强人意,为阿尔塔戈的故事暂且画上了一个圆满的句号。 Collapse
