Ys Online is a free to play Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) , which is based on the Japanese view of an RPG fantasy world (anime-ish). You'll find a lot of interesting humanoids commonly found in Japanese anime as well, whether it is cat women, well-endowed beauties, or cute "chibified" Lolitas, you're bound to find them here. The story is pretty much your average "peace and war" MMO cliché where 3 races who have been living in peace for so long end up fighting in an all out battle for Supremacy. Not that I blame them or anything since it IS the easiest plot to formulate. Yes, these stories are rather generic and you'll often find them in most MMOs. As much as I would like to expand the story, I'm very sorry to say that the story just isn't narrated very well, and that the player actually needs to read the notes on the site to understand the situation at hand. Don't judge the game too quickly by the way as it is commonly played around the world, reaching an insurmountable number of subscribers who love and play the game as it is. The game does have a lot of things going for it, so let's dive in and see how well it does shall we?
