Tough to play without an English translation. Very much an Y's game though.
this game is the best of the Ys series this game is a prequel before Ys 3 but its a fantastic game i would put my card down right now and get it but i dont have the money. If i did id be able to afford it id buy it right now this game has changed a lot of ways that we see games. Ys was a fantastic series that was created by hudson soft and ported to major consoles. I stumbled apon Ys during a review by the Happy Console Gamer and with out of dought both Johnny and Rob man are right this is the best Ys game of all time. All Ys games before the 5 6th and 7th instalment are great but i believe ys 1-4 changed every way a gamer plays a game. But when i think of the ultimate RPG i think of Ys not final fantasy or wild arms or phantasy star i think of the game that changed gaming for over. Ys 1-4 and ys 5-7 thank you falcom and thank you hudson for allowing falcom to create a wonderful story telling of a game that has been charrased ever since. Thank you for ever and may others who are board...
It's a pity this game never made it to North America with an English translation, as it's an excellent Ys game on the PC Engine / Turbografx. Still, if you use a faq to tell the story and explain what to do, it's a solid gaming experience.
Gameplay and Graphics-wise, Ys IV plays a lot like Book I and II. The side scrolling combat from III got dropped and the game returned to its roots. Music is once again an awesome experience.
So I guess it depends on your tolerance to using faqs to play the game. If you don't mind playing the game in Japanese and reading along, it's a very fun action RPG. If you need in-game English to enjoy it, stick to Book I and II.
