Epic action RPG with awesome music and nicely streamlined combat: to attack someone, just run over them, and let the stats to the rest. You automatically pick up any money the foe drops, and levelling up happens all on its own with no interruption as you move. You also move really darn fast, so that it's a joy to travel around.
The graphics have a distinct 8+8 bit look to them: not fat and super-colorful like the classic 16 bit SNES RPGs, but faster and more colorful than 8-bit RPGs. And the CD music beats beats everything.
"Ys" is pronounced like it rhymes with "geese," by the way--you hear it in the opening intro. I'd been wondering...
Haven't got too far in this yet, obviously, but I'd like to give it the time it deserves some day.
