    Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA Review - Charming, Heartwarming & Visually Rough RPG

    Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA Review

    Take a deep breath. Soak in that ocean air, the slight chill in the breeze. It's the scent of adventure, something you are all too familiar with. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is the latest adventure in the Ys series, an ongoing tale of adventuring around the world. While the game has a lot going for it in the way of charm, heart, and excellent handling, its presentation doesn't live up to what it could have been.
    [...]
    Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is a heartwarming and interesting journey with fantastic characters and a balanced combat system. Playing the game reminded me of classics like Monster Hunter with the heavy reliance on scavenging, side quests, and traveling from zone to zone. It plays much like older games I am familiar with, but that can be a two-edged sword as newcomers might not find it up to their expectations. With the original graphics porting over from the Vita, it feels like a game that - if it didn't have its charm - would be quickly forgotten. It's a title for last generation but that doesn't mean it should be overlooked; like any good adventure, this game is about the journey and it's a trip worth taking.

    The Good
    • Charming Characters
    • Excellent Combat System
    • Monster Hunter-esque
    The Bad
    • Feels Outdated
    • Graphics so so
    Score: 82/100
