Ys: The Oath in Felghana

The action role-playing series Ys (pronounced “ee-ss”) is one long, continuous adventure cut into digestible pieces. The Oath in Felghana, in particular, acts as a remake of Ys III: Wanderers from Ys, which developer Nihon Falcom released in 1989. The updated version came to PSP in 2010 with a localization courtesy of Xseed Games, but the game hit Steam only last month. Is it worth the $15 price point? For gamers looking to tap into the market of shorter RPGs (10-15 hours in this instance) or anyone seeking a good challenge: yes.

In The Oath in Felghana, adventurers Adol Christin and Dogi arrive in Felghana, home to the little town of Redmont where Dogi grew up with his childhood friend Chester and Chester’s sister, Elena. In typical RPG fashion, monsters have been encroaching on the usually peaceful locale, a disturbance exacerbated by the rash actions of the corrupt Count McGuire. The game involves a tight-knit group of characters, mostly townsfolk and the ruling class, and centers around Redmont. As the silent protagonist Adol, players must unravel a dark plot that has caused Chester to serve the sinister Count, who has been inflicting hardship on the people of Felghana.


Gameplay consists of fighting enemies in dungeons and confronting much tougher bosses, using a blend of physical attacks and magic. It’s easy to relax and enter the flow of combat while you’re exploring, but bigger battles require your full attention. The game features three basic modes, and the intensity of the Normal setting should clue players in that the game offers merciless challenge, testing a player’s endurance and skill as they fight keepers of treasure with obscene amounts of HP. The default mode of Easy provides considerable difficulty without mopping the dungeon floor with the player.
