Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana disappointed me when I couldn't launch it to play after I picked it up. However, once it started working I was amazed by the rich visuals and the storyline. I was even pleased by the action aspect of the combat, and I am all about the traditional turn-based RPG. If you pick this game up you will love it or you won't. But it's definitely one I plan on playing for a long time still.

Overall Ys VIII the Lacrimosa of Dana is a compelling and entertaining JRPG. I often found myself torn between pushing the main story forward and doing all the side activities, but the real tell was I just really enjoyed spending time in the game no matter what I was doing. The graphics, music, and game mechanics all work well together to provide many hours of delightful and fun entertainment.

A must-play for those who enjoy JRPGs and even those who are partial to the free-roam, action style combat. Fans of Ys and newcomers alike will be sucked in by the story and fluid combat. It can get a little grindy at times, but that grind isn’t without its rewards and the host of different activities to take part in breaks up the monotony of fighting through areas and taking on fetch quests for your villagers.

No es descabellado decir que Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana es la entrega más ambiciosa de la saga, uno de sus mejores capítulos, y uno de los grandes juegos de rol japoneses del año junto a Persona 5 y Nier: Automata, cada uno dentro de su estilo. Si buscas un nuevo JRPG de acción al estilo clásico, ya lo has encontrado.

Da fragt man sich schon, warum man auf die PC-Version so lange warten musste, denn viel liebloser hätte man die Portierung des letztjährigen Action-Rollenspiel-Hits kaum handhaben können. Zwar war Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana schon auf PS4 und Vita keine technische Meisterleistung, aber was NIS America hier auftischt, ist geradezu eine Frechheit.

Formidable machine de combat, Ys VIII : Lacrimosa of DANA innove et rénove presque à tous les niveaux. Affrontements ultra-rapides et lisibles, exploration pleine de surprises, ennemis variés, boss exigeants, personnages attachants, le dernier Nihon Falcom démontre à véritable savoir-faire en la matière A-RPG, réussissant même à intégrer naturellement des mécaniques jusqu’ici étrangères à la série. Un très bon titre donc. Seule une technique un peu en-deçà des attentes le dessert un peu.

La speranza è che gli sviluppatori sistemino al più presto, con delle patch, tutto ciò che al momento non va. Il titolo non è ingiocabile, sia ben chiaro, ma è evidente che non ci siamo affatto e che gli utenti avrebbero meritato un altro tipo di trattamento.
