Why I Loved YS 8 – My second play-through of this gem was just as amazing as the first, so why not get my thoughts out there! Hope you enjoy it!
Please be aware that this is a review/run-through of the game, so we’ll be skimming through the major plot points as we go.
DON’T WATCH THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT THE STORY SPOILED.
Outside of Trails, I see many people asking the questions, why should I play YS 8? Should I buy YS 8, or is YS 8 good? Well quite simply, yes, it’s very good, the best YS game I’ve played so far, and that is saying something.
Since I started the channel, I’ve always wanted to do an YS 8 review/playthrough, to try and understand in depth why I enjoy this game as much as I do. Not only do I believe that YS 8 is a good starting point if you want to get into the series, but I want to explain why YS 8 is masterful in the way it delivers a compelling adventure to the player.
With Adol, the main protagonist of YS, and his compatriot, Dogi, after an unfortunate shipwreck (this is a trope of Adol), they end up marooned on the Isle of Seiren, a landmass devoid of human life. It initially is the job of Adol and his companions to find more survivors from the ship, but it quickly becomes apparent that simply escaping the island is not the only objective here. Something far more mysterious looms, as Adol starts to share memories with a young girl named Dana. As they continually guide each-other through the perils, Adol and Dana must come together to put a stop to the ominous Lacrimosa, a phenomenon that threatens not only the age of Man, but also eras of the future.
So, the question, should you buy YS 8? Well, hopefully after this video, you’ll get the answers you need.
This will be a highly in depth look, including skimming over the main story, so I would advise not to watch if you plan to play the game in the future.
