The care and charm put into these remakes is truly remarkable. Just as Oath in Felghana triggered a wave of nostalgia, this game manages to provide a truly classic gaming experience, with just enough modern flare to ease (pun?) over some of the rough edges sometimes associated with classic gaming.
I found the antiquated 'bump' system quite addictive after a while. The combat, at times, resembles what would occur if 'the legend of zelda' and 'geometry wars' had a baby. It's hard to describe, but it's tremendously satisfying.
What is truly outstanding about this game is the personality which pervades every corner. The random townsfolk all seem to be part of a bigger picture, and have a myriad of dialogue options depending on how you interact with them. They all seem to have a bit more individual personality than the common run of the mill NPC, and it's easy to grow attached to them. Not only that, but under certain circumstances, even the enemies can be conversed with (in ys 2 at least). Not just some of the monsters, but ALL of the monters have their own character and dialogue trees. Even the steam achievements made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion.
Truly this package lets you relive a bit of gaming history without it being some sort of archaeological exercise. Great music. Great gameplay. They're just fun. Good and fun.
About 23 hours.
P.S. Use a frame limiter to cap the frames per second to exactly 60 to eliminate input lag.
