A complete 3D reimagining of the 16-bit console classic "Ys III: Wanderers From Ys," Ys: The Oath in Felghana is a fast-paced action role-playing game with tight controls, Metroidvania-style exploration elements, intense combat with epic screen-filling boss battles, and a thrashing, percussive arranged soundtrack that's been heralded by many as one of the best of all time.

Oath in Felghana maintains the frenetic combat system, the fantastic bosses and the great pacing that made other Ys games so addictive while fixing many of their shortcomings.
A fully realized world (directly tied to one of the only recurring characters of the series!), a weapon upgrade system that keeps the leveling pace more flexible, and a nicer difficulty curve are the major changes that make this a truly standout entry in the series and one of the best games of the genre.
The story sucks balls and the lava area is a particular slog but in such a short game you can brush it off for a mostly flawless gameplay experience.

La saga Ys no deja de fascinarme. Siempre mantiene un nivel de calidad que me hace disfrutar todos y cada uno de ellos. Oath es mejor que Ark, he disfrutado más el combate de este, al ser más similar a Origins, que sigue siendo el mejor. Recomendado

Story is pretty good and the added voice acting isn't that bad so it makes the game more captivating. Gameplay is really improved and its a good balance between magic and fighting. The bosses were also all really fun and fair.

Em poucas palavras tão engajando e divertido quanto ys origin, porém inferior.
Sendo sincero a ost aqui é um ponto bem alto e o flow de como tu lida com as fases e os boss, ao menos para mim, foi um tanto difícil, esse jogo tem spikes de dificuldade que real eu senti um incomodo muito forte em somente 2 ocasiões.
Tirando isso, foi uma aventura satisfatória, tem elementos de narrativa interessantes minimamente, mas bem ok.
Pelo visto não foi aqui que ys começou a elaborar melhor sua narrativa, ainda assim esse jogo tem uma temática e acho ela ok.
Concluindo, um jogo sólido.

Ys: The Oath in Felghana features all of the series mainstays: exemplary music, straightforward hack 'n slash combat, difficulty spike bullet-hell bosses, some light puzzling and platforming in the dungeons, and a brief, beautiful story. Difficulty on normal is perfectly balanced for minimal (but not zero) grind while still requiring you to learn the bosses attack patterns to progress. While I enjoyed my time with this game, it still left me wanting a bit more depth - the combat is satisfying but doesn't evolve much, and the story is touching but the characters don't get a lot of opportunities to connect with the player. Still the writing is excellent, and overall the game is a delicious bite-sized action RPG.
