Platinum was incredible, but I do like this game muchly. It lacks the pow that Platinum had, however. I expect the 'third' version to be a contender for my favorite, though. I am at a point where I'm not really comparing. What I can say is the first and fifth generations are not and never will be my favorites.
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed. No news now-
