    Darm Tower.... What a maze it was...
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    Darm wasn't really that bad. I actually had more trouble with the starting dungeon of Ys 2 than I did with Darm.

    Yeah, Darm Tower is actually pretty linear when you get right down to it. The path splits EVERY NOW AND AGAIN, but mostly, you're just... going up. (:

    Now the Shrine of Solomon in Ys II? *THAT* is a maze.

    Hell, most of the dungeons in Ys II are. I still get lost every time I try to navigate the Ice Ridge of Noltia.

    Definitely getting this along with Oath in Felghana. Just finished Ark of Napishtim and loved it.

    Yep but Darm tower confuses you in a way that you don't know if you're going up or down. Oh and Zaku77 after you get the PSP superior version you can smash the DS version to pieces AVGN style.

    Does the psp version have more the the DS? I just bought the DS one last month because I've never played one but heard they are great and they sound interesting. Would it be worth it to buy 1 and 2 on the PSP also?

    Can't say if it has MORE. I can say that the PSP version is made by Falcom where the DS one was a port from another company. I tried the DS one and it felt clunky to me, but the PSP version has been smooth so far.

    The awesome music is also held back by the DS' horrible archaic sound chip, but this isn't an issue in the PSP version. It also looks and plays much better and has several options for art and music. It's far superior to that mess on the DS.

    Any idea if the extra area in the DS version might be in the PSP one? The Vageux-Vardette crater thing? Because if so maybe I'll just sale the DS version and eventually get the psp one... It's sounding like it's better...

    The bonus area from the DS version is *not* in the PSP game... but honestly, it's nothing special. It feels really tacked on, and adds exactly nothing to the plot. (:

    And yeah, I realize there's a conflict of interests here (I'm an XSEED employee, so of COURSE I'm going to hype the game!)... but in all seriousness, the DS version of the game is a very different experience from the PSP version, as it actually has an entirely different combat system. And while there ARE people who enjoy the DS version's combat system... most people seem to agree that it's a bit clunky, and that Falcom's own take on the game for PC and PSP feels far more natural.

    I'd encourage you to try both, though, and see for yourself which you prefer.

    I can't talk to the DS version, but I don't think I'm breaking embargo when I say that the PSP version is really fast and is easy to get into. Enjoying it much more than I expected to.

    You should run right out and get Oath In Feglhana as well. That game is just so good.

    Oath in Felghana is godly, I agree.
    SEVEN is fun too.

    Anyways, can't wait for this on the 22nd, though I'll be heavily involved with Dragon Quest VI and Tactics Ogre, so Ys may need to wait, temporarily at least.

    I've been keeping an eye out for it at Gamestop :D Got 7 last Friday :) I will get to it.. Maybe after I finish FF4 complete collection cause I know no game will be played when that comes out. I've waited for a sequel to that game since 1991. And I want to enjoy Ys so I will wait. Because I'd just try to rush through it if I start it soon..

    I've got RPG problems too, DQVI comes out early next week, as well as Tactics Ogre, also Ys I & II Chronicles and Radiant Historia the week after, so some games are going to have to wait unfortunately, firstly I'll be playing DQVI since I waited 15 years for it.

    Then later on there's Dissidia 012, The 3rd Birthday and FFIV Complete Collection among other things, way too many games...
    And if the InFamous 2 release date is indeed in May, and I'll need to shell out $100 for that Hero edition, gragh.

    Well, bear in mind the Ys games are actually quite short (save for Ys Seven, anyway). Ys I will take you 5-10 hours to beat, Ys II 10-15, and Felghana 10-20. And that's... a pretty conservative estimate. (:

    These are old games, remember. Remade or not, old console games tend to be pretty short... but as they say, they're "short but sweet." ;)

    That is great to know:) Thank for this :) I don't know anyone in RL who has played this series so I was just guessing that it might take me a bit.. It's good to know I can probably get it in before FF4 for the PSP.

    You can tell a great story in 10-20 hours and if you're working full time it's just frustrating to play modern JRPGs that are padded into the 50+ hours range. Every time you pick up Ys you feel like you make significant progress both in the story and in levelling your char and you never feel like the game is wasting your time in order to slap "50 hours of gameplay" on the cover.

    Yup, the first 2 Ys games combined are about as long as game ought to be. I was really surprised when I beat the first one in a single evening.

    For some reason I see Ys I and Ys II as a single game. It looks like a single game split in 2 on purpose.

    They kinda play like a single game, honestly. I mean, Ys II picks up at the EXACT MOMENT where Ys I leaves off, so they tell a pretty cohesive story...

    Thanks everyone :D After reading some more reviews about how bad the ds version is, I decided to trade it in to Gamestop and put the credit towards Radian Historia and will be getting a PSP copy of the game :) Because I don't want a bad version to make me not like what seems to be a great game
