5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, but...
By Josh on February 2, 2019
Going in to this game, I'd never played a Ys game before - let alone even heard of the series. That said, I really came to appreciate this game early on in my playthrough. I think the graphics and overall feel of this game work really well on the Switch, so much so that I'm actually glad I didn't pick this up for my Playstation 4 or PC, despite the game only running at 30 FPS for the Switch. Overall, it's just as fun in handheld mode as it is on the TV, and I did a near 50/50 split of both modes during my playthrough. Gameplay-wise, exploration is everything and I was really sold on the spirit of adventure this game has as you explore and meet other cast aways. The combat is pretty fun, though sometimes felt a bit simple and grindy compared to other games in this genre; that said, I really enjoyed the overall rhythmic feeling from combat in this game, and fighting always had a good pace. While the voice acting was solid, I did find quite a few typos in the dialogue that really hurt my immersion a bit and it's hard for me to have sympathy about something as easy to do as correct script errors. The soundtrack was really fun and was especially energetic during boss fights. The adventurer's version of the game came with some cool inserts - a map, some character cards, and a reversible cover (the cards were my favorite), and I really love it when games come with little things like this one did. Overall, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is a fun game that I like a lot, but its lack of polish in some areas keeps me from truly loving it.

Es el primer juego de YS que compro, desde hace algunos meses me dio mucha curiosidad porque vi una reseña en la que le daban un buen puntaje. Es un juego de acción con tintes de RPG que hasta el momento me ha gustado mucho. Obviamente por ser para switch el precio es algo elevado, se encuentra más barato si es para PSVITA, pero esta versión trae unos trajes descargables para los personajes, un mapa con póster en el reverso y unas tarjetas. Me gustó tanto que estoy pensando en comprar el anterior de esta misma saga, que también venden en Amazon (Ys: Memories of Celceta para PSVITA).
