Ranting of Ys, I must also say: eff you, Nintendo Power. >_< Giving a "Hmmm..." rating to Ys Book I & II! Bastards!
I agree with them, its not that great of a game. If it didn't have the soundtrack behind it, the game would have pushed further into obscurity. We see, and talk about Ys every day, whereas the "norm" has ether never heard of it, or remembers it when it first came out. The First wave of Ys book releases are extremely dated, and I find Eternal/Complete to be a better game/package overall. If it was the Complete versions then the review would have been better.

The reviewer made it pretty clear that he hasn't even seen how awesome part II is! =\ Even on the Famicom, Ys II holds its own quite well! That guy deserves to be neutered... just for having an opinion different from my own.
I personally think Ys II is the least fun game in the series (the real series of Ys 1-6). I'm not saying it sucks, though.
And I consider Ys Book 1-2 the worst versions of Ys 1-2 overall. I can't stand the crippled gameplay (one example: you can get immune to boss attacks), and not the music either. I almost have to mute it. Cheesy 80's rock. No thanks. I don't know what the review said, but the guy was probably right. I love Ys 1-2 (despite what I just said about Ys 2), but not these particular versions. 2/5.

FM-77 is a cool computer, sold only in Japan. I think it is somewhat similar to NEC's PC-8801 computer series.
...Eh, this thread is TOTALLY off. xD What's cool about this is... is... I didn't cause it! *sigh* finally. But I AM delivering the final blow. xD
Felghana is long enough, yet a bit shorter than Ys VI. And I have no idea about Ys ORIGIN. (Yet Ys ORIGIN seems to have greater replay value, because you have 3 characters.) That's it, seriously. Now, whether you take 5 or 15 hours to beat it once, that depends how much of a game completer you are etcetera.
Actually, I think the Falcom patch is no longer automatically installed when running Nightwolve and Deuce's patch. If I'm not mistaken, Falcom changed the links to the "Very Easy" patch a while ago, and so Nightwolve's patcher may not be able to access the proper URL anymore (unless he finally updated that when he released the beta patch to the public). Here's a link to the patch, if you still need it.
