I really want to play through Ys III again before the Japanese PS2 version hits so it'll be fresh in my mind and I can hopefully make my way through it not being able to read it. Now the last time I played through Ys III was the Genesis version a little after it was released so long ago. So which version should I play through? I have access to all of them... I have the Turbo, Genesis & SNES versions and I could use emu's for MSX or NES. I know the SNES one has the correct translations of everything, but it's supposed to be poor isn't it? I'm leaning towards the Turbo simply for the music even if the voice acting blows. Any thoughts?

Thanks for all your suggestions! I think I'm gonna go with the Genesis. I actually hooked up my Duo and started to play that version, but wow... it hasn't aged all that well. The music of course is phenomenal, but I can always just listen to that off the game disc. I can live without the cinematics too if it plays that much smoother.

I just beat Ys III on the SNES yesterday (I started it before reading this thread). I didn't think it was too difficult, although it did force you to roam around and fight enemies just to level up. The music was a little hokey, too.
Anyways, are the TG-16 and Genesis versions so much better that I ought to play those versions as well?

Maybe sometime in the distant future I'll replay the Genesis version.
I also played around a little with the MSX2 version of Ys III. The previous owner had apparently made it all the way to the castle, so I started playing there. Although the scrolling is really choppy, the game looks really good. I like some of the background details better than the SNES version, actually. But the slowdown and choppy scrolling really kill the game.
The only problem the Genesis version has is the colors. They are quite boring and too dark. But this is a problem with almost every Genesis game. It's still great though, and the music is very good too.

The Pc Engine version of the game is terrible, and mostly responsible for this games bad reputation. Seems like the system couldn't handle the game. The best thing about it is the voice acting. Even for a CD, I think the music is arguably worse than the other versions.
The SNES version is getting too much hate, there is nothing wrong with it. It's on par with, if not better than the Genesis version.
