Ys VIII has a strong "jump in and play" factor that the other action RPGs on Switch don't quite offer, which meshes well with the portable factor. Being a Vita game originally means it's already designed to be played on the go, and the enemy weakness/weapon properties means there's more...

ProWonderfully crafted puzzles
ConWeapon durability system can feel tedious to some
Fantastic, organic dungeons feel like they were hand-build instead of generated. The game feels new every time you play it. I like the fast-paced combat (although I do miss turn-based rogue-likes for their ability to allow for multi-tasking). All-in-all, a great rogue-like/lite for the Switch.
ProAwesome dungeon generation
ConUnlocking Character Classes
ConAwkward looting system

ProIt feels good in your hand
The turn based RPG battles are easy to learn. There's very little learning curve, so jumping into the game is painless. If you enjoyed similar games like Final Fantasy Tactics, you'll like the battles in Chronicles. It doesn't add much to the genre, but it's a fun distraction for a few hours.

ConYou'll be stuck with the same perspective of each battle for the entire game
ConThe color of gear quality in the weapon shop is confusing
