Ultimately, Ys feels incredibly unneeded. Its play style is too archaic and too boring, even for old-school fans. The story and dialogue may have once been impressive, but are now just empty and laughable. And the real joke is that this is being sold at full price. Here's a secret: if you have a Wii, just download the original Ys I & II. It's a fraction of the cost, which makes the flaws in this gaming history lesson more forgivable. And if you only have a DS, there are way too many other, better RPGs out there to bother with this tired fossil.
