HIGH Bringing down a boss that has over 100K hit points in short order thanks to the fluid and fun combat system.

WTF Really? A princess in disguise and a prison scene? Come on, RPG writers...

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim – Review

For many, Ark of Napishtim will be their first experience with a Ys game. However, the series has been around for ages (it's always just been overshadowed by the Zeldas of the gaming universe). Recurring character Adol Christin could have easily been as big an icon as Link, but the poor guy's just never been given the chance.
