  • I enjoy Ys 7 a lot but the game just throws in the characters and says there is treasure to be found
  • When I think of treasure hunts the reality series Survivor comes to mind and I really don’t want to think about that during a kick-ass RPG like this one
  • Unfortunately you can only control one character at a time but the AI does a nice job at making it seem like two of your buddies are playing as well
  • I found this part of the game entertaining for the first hour or two but then I go real sick of switching back and forth between characters just to kill a simple creature

      Fans of the Ys series will be glad to know the series is in good hands thanks to Falcom. Instead of going in a new direction the game starts off with our main heroes, Adol and Dogi, as they go looking for treasure again. If you are a fan of the series then you know Adol is not a new character, he has been the main hero in all of the games except Ys Origins, though he did make an appearance in it at least.

      I enjoy Ys 7 a lot but the game just throws in the characters and says there is treasure to be found. Of course we all know most role playing game stories change at some point and Ys 7’s plot does pick up the pace a little bit and drifts away from treasure. You just can’t help but think that Falcom could have started things off better than saying our heroes are on a treasure hunt. When I think of treasure hunts the reality series Survivor comes to mind and I really don’t want to think about that during a kick-ass RPG like this one.

      Along with the main story there are some side quests you can pick up too, but none of them are


      really going to change the game. Most of these side quests, if not all (I couldn’t find all of them), just have to finding the right person to talk to in town and then collecting items for them. You then sell them the items for extra gold. Plain and simple.

      The game plays just like all of the past games. An action role playing game that has a lot of similarities to the Legend of Zelda franchise, except for the second game in the series since that game was just completely out there. The biggest change in the series is the ability to control three characters at once, something like Secret of Mana. Unfortunately you can only control one character at a time but the AI does a nice job at making it seem like two of your buddies are playing as well. It would have been real cool if this game could have been online or at least let others play locally.

      Each character in the game has their own set of attacks and special skills they can learn from weapons. The skills in the game are learned when you reach level one through that weapon, and then you can set it to your skills (only 4 at

      a time) for usage whenever you’d like. Most of the skills in Ys 7 are different which was nice to see. Do take the time early on to learn the skills, I made the mistake and didn’t do so until I got to the Fire Shrine.

      Enemies in the game will challenge you or they might annoy the living hell out of you. Each of your characters uses one weapon class and certain monsters will only take damage from that one weapon. You can get lucky and find another weapon or two that will do damage to those creatures but it isn’t enough to stand there and attack until your face turns blue. I found this part of the game entertaining for the first hour or two but then I go real sick of switching back and forth between characters just to kill a simple creature. Not only that, certain bosses will only loose health points from one weapon class!

      All of the characters in the game do have two meters as well. The one is for your skills that I talked about earlier and the other lets your character use an ultimate attack. Some of those ultimate moves are against enemies while others will help your team out.

      Ys ...

      7 also lets you make your own equipment if you please. Most of the weapons you can make early on will get you certain skills faster but I mainly found it better to just kill enemies outside and earn money, then buy equipment that is the same or slightly better. It is nice to have this option available and again it does come in handy early on so don’t just forget it since I didn’t sound too over joyed.

      One of the game’s best traits has to be the graphics. No, wait I mean the music. Ahhh forget it the graphics and music in Ys 7 is an RPG fanboys wet dream. I’m serious; this is one nice looking and sounding PSP game. There is never any slow down with the attacks, the animations are fluent, and the music always fits the current mood in the game. This game looks better than most non-SquareEnix games on the Playstation 2 and it looks better than 80% of the Wii games on the market.

      Ys 7 will blow you away when it comes to RPGs on the Playstation Portable. This game runs smooth and it sounds incredible. I wish there was some multiplayer aspects in the game since you always have three

      people in your party, but still as a single player role playing game it is quite good. If you’ve been looking for an RPG to buy you better pick this bad boy up immediately.

      Rating Breakdown.

      Gameplay: 9 out of 10

      + Fun to play and the game will take you at least 15 to 20 hours to conquer.

      - Switching back and forth between characters for enemies and bosses is annoying.

      Story: 7 out of 10

      + Story has a few plot twists almost halfway through.

      - Just wish the game didn’t start off so bad with the story.

      Graphics: 9 out of 10

      + Beautiful graphics and animations make this Ys standout.

      - Not quite as polished as a SquareEnix game.

      Audio: 9 out of 10

      + The music always goes great with the game, top notch.

      - Again not quite up to par with a SquareEnix game.

      Replay Value: 6 out of 10

      + A few side quests to pick up here and there could make you play this one again.

      - Three characters and no multiplayer? It really does suck.
