Ys: Memories of Celceta Review | Polygon

It's rare for timing to be this important in an RPG.

And it's rare for a game to use amnesia as an interesting gameplay mechanic instead of just a storytelling crutch. Ys: Memories of Celceta calls on the series' long history, but it builds out from there, transforming into something familiar but fresh.

It deserves to be played right now, not reserved for the history books. (PS Vita, Ys: Memories of Celceta) 8.5/10

I knew this game would be good, but this is even above my expectations. I've never played a Ys game but as soon as I get a Vita I'm going to get this.

Would it help to play Ys: 7 first ?

Yessir. Celceta is pretty Ys 7 on steroids.

I'm not complaining the score, it's a good score of course, but i agree with some commenter about "How can you write an Ys review and not mention its excellent soundtrack?"

Every single review for YS games that i read always put a big nod to the soundtrack. But polygon reviewew not mention one bit of the excellent soundtrak.

Also, how the hell the reviewer can said YS combat is sluggish? -_-

Oh well, it's polygon.
