Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Classic action RPG gameplay that still holds up to current day games
While an older game, the gameplay itself still holds up pretty well. In classic action RPG fashion, the player sets out on an adventure where they must battle enemies in real time. Similar in style to games such as Zelda or Secret of Mana, Y's is one of the original Japanese action RPGs with great gameplay and polish.
Pro Simple directional controls that are easy to understand and work great on touch screens
There are actually no buttons on screen, and the whole game is controlled with a floating Dpad. Interaction with NPCs is down by just bumping into them, same with fighting monsters. This type of control method may appeal to those who find more complicated controls with many buttons complicated.
Pro Mobile friendly save system where you save when you want
The save system is pretty forgiving, fitting well with a mobile on the go style of gaming as you can save at anytime you like as well as rely on saves every so often from the game itself.
Con Translation is full of errors
The translation of the game is chock full of errors, making for sometimes difficult to read text and hard to follow story.
