The problem with Ys I & II on DS is that the traditional Ys control (bumping into enemies in combat) has been restricted to the stylus control. If you control using the D-Pad, you are limited with the new method of swinging a sword, but there's no range with the attack using this method.
The PSP version (scheduled for release on 02/15) will be more spot on as Falcom is doing the port themselves from the updated PC re-release. Enjoy the DS version though...it's quite rare until recently that the US has even seen this series released here. I know I was grateful to Atlus for releasing it....
Thanks Joe for your post. I actually canceled my order from Amazon (usually they process it so fast, but managed to cancel in time) after reading what you posted and then reading the Japanese reviews for the PSP version. I would rather have Falcom doing the port more than anything. Thanks again!
Not sure if we'll get a soundtrack with the PSP version though. Hopefully we do, similar to "Y's Seven".
