Fantastic entry to the Ys series of games. Story is fine but has always come second to the great action this series is known for. Lacrimosa of DANA doesn't fall short in that regard, with colorful enemies to battle and lots of characters and combos to put to use. Highly recommended!

Ys VIII lacrimosa of dana is one of the best jrpg that i have played in my life, Everything from the graphics to the map, characters and the story are beautiful, a step up from the previous entries in the series, i finished it in 50 hours enjoying every second of it, i especially loved the music, when sunshine coastline played for the first time i literally could not move untill i listened to it till the end; Boss battles are great too, especially the ones at the endgame, I think a game like this is worth experiencing at least once in your life, if you like action jrpg you can't go wrong with this one, you'll enjoy it for sure, you don't even need to play the other entries to play this one so no excuse, you're good to go on this adventure fellow castaway.

Type of game: ARPG. The Good: Fun character interactions. Decent story. DLC cosmetic or boost only, no effect on gameplay (thank you!) The Bad: Character equipment not visible on characters (only on ragdolls). Grinding required if you want upgraded equipment across the board. The Ugly: Controls. If you love arpg controls you will like it. You can change main characters on the fly. Me, I hate it and prefer turn-based.

I've played a fair amount of the rest of the series and this one is proving to be my favourite so far. The island is fun to explore, combat is fun. I'm interested in the characters and story and building up your little base village is lovely to see progress. It seems easier to me than previous Ys games, but that's perfectly fine by me and there are multiple difficulty settings as always if you want more of a challenge. Falcom continues to hit!

I’m not really that far into the game but I’ve enjoyed it so far it has, it has a deep story with a big map that you can explore as the world progresses, night mode is pretty cool
