    "Character conversations last way too long. 15 minutes of talk to 3 minutes of actual play. Got to the board to the left of the inn entrance and was offered 5 MKP for watching a 3 minute ad. Pressed ok and have been waiting for 20+ minutes and nothing has happened. I cannot move or exit. My only choice is to close the app. Don't want to go through all this again because I never got a chance to save the game. Not 20 minutes into the game and it froze. Unimpressed."

    "When I heard this came out I was stoked. I had been reading developer reviews when it was under construction and I just have to say it is one of the best MMORPG's I ever played. They just added the Katana to the new list of weaponry so you can slice right through your foes like a ninja!"

    "Its a really nice game. The characters are strong fighters. The only thing that I don't like is that the story line is very short. It only took me a few days to finish the story line. Over all its a nice game."

    "A well established video game that has been around for over 20 years is now in Apple Store. As with all conversions to new technologies there are some pluses and minuses that come with adaptation but over all the game is very interesting and quite fun to play."

    "Blazing Souls is a great game, and it is a JRPG but the problem with this, is that it isn't for iphone. This game is on Android, which means the solution just doesn't work for me. However, if you can find this game on ios, it is a very good fit for a JRPG game, a very fun one at that."

    "I really enjoy the fast gameplay of Ys. If you're not open to new experiences (as the gameplay is not traditional) you may not be able to get into Ys as much. However, I think it's novelty that any seasoned player will appreciate. You'll welcome being enveloped to its cult-like fandom."
