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. 8.5/10
