Review by CheeseCake:
Ys: Oath in Felghana is the 9th remake of Ys III:Wanderers of Ys on the really old (think 1980’s before Microsoft) PCs by Nihon Falcom Corporation. It was localized by XSEED Games.
I’m being serious here. They remade it for every major platform including PC Engine, NES,and SNES from the 1980s onward.
The games is a hack&slash action RPG. I would like to make that clear right now. Some have compared this to Legend of Zelda since they’re very similar genre-wise but Ys games are much more fast paced than LoZ.
You go slay random monsters, explore dungeons, puzzles, power ups/skills, everything you would expect of a RPG.
In this game, they introduced the Boost system where you get a sudden increase in attack speed and power for a short period of time. This is great for fighting crowds or dealing damage to bosses in that short period when they’re vulnerable.
If you cannot reach a certain area in a dungeon, you will obtain the magic or power up(like double jumps) to reach that area later so you have the option of backtracking for extra equipment and materials (mainly raval ore).
