WTF is this??? A game for ants??? You fight monsters by bumping into them. You interact with townspeople by bumping into them. You pick up items by bumping into them. You solve puzzles (in the loosest sense of the word) by (you guessed it) bumping into them. They should have called this game 'Blunder Boy and the Uncredibly Bumpy Dungeon'.
The graphics are weak (even for 2001). The music isn't bad, but highly repetitive, even with the Complete Pack. Stat leveling is completely automatic (and one-dimensional). There are no powers, secondary abilities, or any sense of growth other than the number of times you have to bump into an enemy to kill them (typically 1 once you're high enough level). Quests are also automatic - you have no choice in their resolution or even to accept them or not. You just initiate them once you... bump into them.
4/10 would not buy again.
PS If you still want to buy the game, a controller is highly recommended. Played this with a kb and with a shield controller, and the controller massively improved the playability of the game (such as it is). If I had been stuck w the keyboard, I'd have ragequit in the first 10 minutes.
EDIT: I've finally found the perfect adjective to describe the 'bump' combat system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frotteurism
Essentially, Adol is a pervert that gets off on rubbing himself against his enemies nonconsensually until he 'defeats' them. Was Ys originally supposed to be an H-game?
