    Every bit as good as it should be, but lacking a bit of what it could be.

    The Y's series is one that's been around a long time and one that I've always been curious about, going back to the Turbographx-16. I was interested in trying this out for the PS2, and when the price...

    Adol Christin once more embarks on a great adventure! Must play for fans of Ys

    The ps2 version of Ark of Napishtim is the definitive version to play since the PSP version is clogged with ridiculous load times. Ys AoN starts out with Adol being washed ashore on an island, wh...

    YS rocks in all ways imaginable. If you grew up playing YS on the turbografix CD or just played alot of Zelda (SNES days) you will love this game. You can pick it up and play which is something sore...

    Ys VI is a decent game, it's just not for everybody.

    Rated on March 01, 2005 by KingFrizzy

    The Ys series has been around now for almost eighteen years. It has been a mainstay overseas in the land of the rising sun, and hasn’t seen a domestic release in the states in nearly a decade, that i...

    Wow...who opened the time capsule?

    I am going to state this from the very beginning – I am too biased to review this game objectively. I’m old, you see. In fact, it’s probably safe to say that I’m older than you are. I’m not old in ...

    A solid, entertaining adventure that doesn't last very long, yet is still fun and enjoyable for all gamers of all ages.

    Rated on September 05, 2006 by Metamania

    The Ys series. It is not that surprising that many gamers in the United States are not familiar with the series. It has, however, gained a loyal fanbase in the Rising Sun, with only five games release...

    The game is easy, and may not be a great challenge for those who are more experienced with RPG games

    Rated on October 22, 2005 by velociguardian

    Ys:Ark of Napishtim is the 6th entry in the Ys series, which had its first game out in 1987, but it certainly isn’t one of the most famous series around, especially because there haven’t been a...
