    Just like Ys Seven was one of the very best games the PSP had to offer, Ys: Memories of Celceta is one of the best games the Vita has to offer. It's fun, it's fast, it's easy to pick up — what's not to like?

    A fantastic action-adventure role-playing game, Ys Memories of Celceta is a great game to use to introduce yourself to the Ys franchise. It's not your typical AAA title, but it definitely plays like one.

    The story is a little blasé and the game is a little slow to start but once you get drawn in, it's very hard to put this game down.

    Hearing a sweeping synth-rock melody punctuate a flurry of sword strikes, mace combos, and stalagmites exploding into a shower of loot is a delightful event that you'll experience countless times.

    For a game whose hero is only one letter short from being named after the greatest monster of the past century, Ys: Memories of Celceta doesn’t do too badly at all. Sure, the lack of vocal tracks and the balance issues conspire to stop the game from reaching its full potential, but it’s still a game that can stand proud both on the Vita and within the Ys catalogue.

    One of the best Ys’ games of the last decade. Memories of Celceta gives action-RPG’s fans a new reason to own a PlayStation Vita.

    I'm just glad that by JRPG standards Celceta is reasonably focused, allowing me to complete it and move on to the next game, neither having been bored nor especially inspired.

One thing thatThe series made a sequel that will completely blew the mind of its fans and those people who are new to the world of Ys. One thing that Celceta can offer was its non-stop high-speed hack and slash action. If you're a fan of Vita's RPG library(Persona, Soul Sacrifice, Ragnarok), then you'll definitely like this. The story didn't sucked at all and even if you're not familiar with the previous games, you'll still enjoy this great game. The game's music is awesomely made and perfectly fits the non-stop action. The only thing that made me give Celceta a 9/10 was it looks like an enhanced PSP game that was made for Vita. The PSP-like graphics was good but I was expecting for it to be better. Expand
