    I appreciate what DotEmu has done with the console port of Ys Origin. A story localized this good deserves to be easily accessed by gamers on as many ports as possible.

    While Ys Origin feels like a relic of the mid-2000's, its fast paced combat still stands the test of time and should satisfy fans waiting for Ys VIII's global release.

    Ys Origin is a wonderful action-RPG that's a handy reminder to us all that timeless, scrupulous game design often ages graciously, gracefully and beautifully.

    Ten years on his shoulders and Ys Origin is still one of the most enjoyable action-RPG ever made.

    Ys Origin is a simple but very enjoyable and replayable Action RPG. If you like this genre and the series, don't miss it.

    Ys Origin is a great gateway into the Ys series, as well as another high-quality entry for those who are already sold on the series. Its streamlined approach offers a perfect combination of being able to showcase what Ys is all about without demanding too much of time commitment. Those looking for an engaging experience of combat and exploration should check it out.

    Ys Origin isn’t a great game, even with the various modes, difficulty settings, and characters that unlock for replayability, simply because it’s straight dungeon crawl with little variety. However, these issues prevent Ys Origin from being as good as it could be, and they certainly make it difficult to recommend the title to newcomers of Ys.

    Tons of hack and slash fun. Good update of an older game. Definitely worth playing and has aged well.

Ese honorPor un lado, los fans de la franquicia ya lo habrán adquirido (aunque no se trate de la mejor entrega de la misma, ni mucho menos. Ese honor para mi va a Ys: Oath Of Felgana), los que quieran iniciarse en el género de los Action JRPG se me ocurren pocos lugares mejores donde empezar, y, sencillamente, si te gustan un mínimo los videojuegos te gustara.

    Es cierto que con las gafas del día de hoy puede parecer simple, desfasado, y genérico, pero es una de esas joyitas que nos recuerdan de vez en cuando como se hacían los juegos antaño, y es capaz de sacarle los colores a mas de un juego de la actual generación. Una aventura larga (8-9 horas con cada personaje), divertida y muy bien diseñada. Y no menos importante, ¡¡traducida a nuestro idioma!! (el primer Ys que puede atribuirse ese logro).

    Un gran título que esperemos sirva para la llegada de la saga completa a los sistemas actuales, y la gente empiece a conocer (y admirar como es debido) esta gran saga.
