Ys 3: Wanderers from Ys (1991)

Ys3Genesis

It’s interesting to see all the small differences between the three versions of Ys3 I played. In the SNES-version the weak point of the final enemy was only open for a short time, in the Genesis-version it’s open all the time, which makes killing him that much easier. Graphically I liked this Genesis-version the most, it really looks quite beautiful in places. But the character handling and the translation were weaker than in both the SNES- and the PCEngine-version. But the gameplay remains fun, even on my third play of the game.
