Description of the game
In Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, she slips into the role of Adol Christin, who have already been a part of the Ys series. Adol has hired on a ship, the Lombardia, and works as a sailor. Actually, the young boy is adventurer, but also as such it lives not only of air and love alone. During the journey the Lombardia is attacked by a huge sea monster and sinks
Story of game
Adol can save herself at the beach of an island, which is considered cursed. It does not have a fixed location, and every ship that is approaching it has so far declined. In addition to Adol, other survivors have managed to save themselves on the island. Together with them, you are planning to build a small village, in order to take the escape from the inhospitable spot. But this is only the beginning of a great adventure on Seiren Island.
Your group grows fast, which is also good, because you meet a lot of monsters who live on the island. Other survivors remain in the initially very manageable base and take care that you have better equipment and for example, refreshments available. If you are “only” busy exploring the island to find more survivors, the other survivors will soon turn to you with smaller orders. Here you should get wood for beds, there you should get raw materials for the camp or catch fish to stuff the hungry mouths.
The size of the island is, at first, only clear. On your journey, you will find a lot of smaller and bigger animals, so you can always fight action. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is largely made up of such battles, providing you with an easy-to-learn, yet exciting combat system. First, you have only a normal attack available. If you climb up in the level, you will learn special skills with which you can, for example, perform a jump attack or a vertebral attack.
The members of your group, who join you very soon, act automatically. You can, however, switch them on at any time and control a different character. This is not unimportant, because everyone has his own personal weapon. The one makes a lot of damage to armored monsters, the other against flying opponents.
The AI of your colleagues is, by the way, very clever. The co-workers act swiftly and do not attack opponents carelessly, which is why you can concentrate completely on your own actions.While you are exploring the island, you will meet not only “small cattle”, but also really thick chunks. Especially the boss battles ensure a lot of variety. Without studying the attack patterns of your opponent, you have little chance of survival. Always be careful to dodge at the right moment, use skills or jump quickly behind your opponent. The boss battles are fundamentally demanding but never unfair.
