Alright 80%

Sort of limited by the hardware (developed for Vita), Lacrimosa of Dana is a great simple RPG with too many loading screens. Combat is fun, story is fun (although takes a while to get interesting), the characters and their fighting styles keep you busy. The story tends to drag a bit towards the end (with many, many dialogs and unnecessary information), but overall, it keeps you going. Not a lot of games are this long on a handheld.

Good 90%

Now at the end of my Ys journey and a great one to end on. There isn't really much I can say about this game. It feels like a culmination of the last 3-4 YS games and is done well.
