RPGFan states, "I'm a big Ys fan. I'm not the biggest (I haven't played either IV or V) but I do love the series greatly. The mixture of excellent action RPG elements, great controls, superb music, and an authentic challenge truly establish the games as classics. Ys: Oath in Felghana is a remake of the third game in the series – Wanderers from Ys. First released on PC, Ys: Oath had excellent graphics, smooth controls, and a redone story that re-imagined everything about Wanderers. In short, they made a silk purse out of a sow's ear."
