Y's 3 continues the adventures of Adol, the legendary hero of Y's. Adol must once again rescue the people from turmoil. Armed with his sword, and all new magic, Adol is well prepared, but is it enough? This time the action takes place from a side scrolling perspective instead of the 3/4 top view as in the first disc. Animated cinema dis-plays, and multiple scrolling back-grounds are also used.

People say:


While there's no denying the fact that CD games with long intermissions, music and sound are attractive, they need to be supported by good game play. Y's 3 is way too linear, with little quest left in the adventure. The action has been honed a bit, but it still is way too easy.


The magical power that is Y's has just returned! Even though this carries the name of one awesome RPG, it's just way to easy! Fortunately, the voices and plot make up for more than what is lost. It's a great sequel that all fans of the original should check out!


I think that this disc misses the high marks of the original. The music is phenomenal and really jams on a good stereo system. The game play, however, is extremely limited. There is little or no challenge here and the whole quest is too straightforward for an adventure game.


Finally! A title that betters its predecessors! The game play is much more challenging this time in the land of Ys! Now you swing your sword! About time! I hate Hydlide attack methods to the max! The quest is pretty cool, but the music will blow you away!
