Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Ys: The Oath in Felghana review

Richard Cobbett at

Looking for a new JRPG? Ys doesn’t exactly qualify. It’s – take a deep breath – an updated English version of the 2005 remake of a Famicom game from 1989, and the third instalment in a series of seven. None of the previous games have made it to PC, but that’s alright; you don’t need to know anything about them to play this one. Unfortunately, that’s largely because this one is astoundingly bland in terms of plot and character, with none of the cutesy weirdness of the Japanese games translated by Carpe Fulgur, or any of the epic storytelling of, say, Final Fantasy. What happens in it? Hero stuff happens. That’s all that sank in.
