i got bad ending and i cant even fight final boss

I had heard of Ys, but never got around to playing them. Fast forward to this gem and now I feel compelled to play all Ys games. Oops.
Had some pacing moments that worked less than others and the raids felt like busy work, but really it's so pleasurable to play that I can forgive all that.

HOLY overrated
People gassed that shit up so hard that I was expecting some gas, all the story happens in the last chapter, some gameplay stuff like raids get repetitive as hell.
Core combat carries it though
Origin better

Picked this up specifically for the experimental coop to have a split screen romp. The game definitely fulfilled that purpose. Sahad is the greatest character in any media. When he farted I felt that.
Game got shelved due to getting a bit too repetitive and a lot of enforced single player segments.
