I feel like remakes are almost always never as good as the original version they're based on, but in this case I'm torn.

The enhanced boss fights are a great addition, and they managed to make some of the bigger, more monotonous dungeons (Darm Tower, anything in a cave) feel like they didn't drag the way they did back on the Turbo Duo, but I found myself longing for the original music and crappy sprites of the older version pretty frequently.
If you have a Wii the Turbo versions of Ys Books 1&2 are on the virtual console. I downloaded it because I liked Ys 3 on the Genesis and Ys 6 on the PS2. The combat is kind of weird. You just run into the enemies. Do you actually push a button to make the player swing the sword in the PC remakes?
