Despite these archaic designs and fundamental flaws, I enjoyed playing Ys I and II. While both games feature a rather banal save-the-world plot, there's an underlying sense of mythology that remains just clouded enough to suggest a grander scheme. Although the characters are somewhat lifeless, the games themselves bear a strong sense of personality heightened by the music, the frenetic action, and the very sound of their name. Although I don't place Ys I and II among my favorite games, I'm sympathetic to those who treat them with reverence. There is magic in Ys.

When all is said and done, though, the most critical mechanics of Ys I & II Chronicles+ feel antiquated and hardly enjoyable. There’s a solid, albeit clichéd, story to be told, gorgeous music to hear and a whole host of options to fiddle around with, but that’s where Chronicles+ stops impressing. Therefore, the game can only be recommend to two groups of people: diehard fans of its series and genre and folks who want to see how far video games really have come in the past 25 years. Everyone else should probably steer clear. The simple truth is there are better Ys games out there, ones that are already on Steam even. So check those out long before Chronicles+.
