Critic Reviews for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

Adol Christin shows us a good time as he grapples, glides, and wall-runs while mowing down innumerable monsters in Ys IX: Monstrum Nox-all while wearing some damn fine threads.

Another fun, fast-paced action role-player from the makers of Trails Of Cold Steel but it's not quite the revelation its predecessor was, despite superior storytelling.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is the most ambitious Ys game to date, delivering a larger focus on narrative and a much more involved and organic world to explore. The game stumbles under its ambitions a bit, with a slow opening chapter and a consistently struggling framerate. Despite those issues, though, this is easily one of the best entries in the long-running franchise, and while veteran fans will get a lot out of the callbacks sprinkled throughout the game, newcomers are still in for one of the best action RPGs of the year.

Ys IX is a classic action RPG, with great exploration mechanics, an accesible combat system and a beautiful soundtrack. We love the story and new characters, but Nihon Falcom game also shows outdated graphics and some repetitive missions.

‎With Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Falcom has re-created a really fun JRPG. In this installment of the saga, many novelties are added to make the playable experience even better than the previous one, and despite being weighed down by its graphics, this aspect does not become a barrier that prevents us from enjoying everything that the game has to offer.‎

While not innovating or distorting the original formula, Ys IX Monstrum Nox still proves to be an eventful and extremely rewarding action-JRPG.
