Adol’s new adventure in the game Ys SEVEN begins about six months after the events of Ys VI. Adol and the Dogs arrive in the lands of the Kingdom of Altago, which just ended the war with the Roman Empire. Not surprising, this time there are no shipwrecks or sea battles.
Quietly arriving in the port city, our Duo looks around a little and notices how the Dragon Knights officer and his subordinates harass a girl. Because they stand up for her, Adol and the Dog are accused by an arrogant and smug officer of being spies of the Empire and are sent to prison. They don’t stay long in prison as another officer of the knights comes to the dungeon with A call from the king himself.
As it turned out, the king knows about Adol and his adventures and therefore asks for his help. In addition to the consequences of the war with the Empire, the Kingdom of Altago is being attacked by huge monsters, which locals call Titano. Also, there is a mysterious disease spread in the Kingdom, nicknamed the Iskan Fever.
The king knows that such events repeat the local legends and asks Adol to help in the investigation. Agreeing to help, Adol and Dogs go to one of the sanctuaries, which appeared after a small earthquake. In a sanctuary, there is a pedestal which presented Adol with a so-called Mark of a Dragon and called him the Dragon Warrior who has to stop “Winds of Destruction”. And so, Adol begins his new and one of the greatest adventures.
The story is not original or particularly deep, but it’s still a very solid adventure with nice characters, interesting twists and situations and, for the first time in the series, with a huge scale of what is happening. Everything has grown, the length of history, the number of dialogues, the territory in which everything happens, the number of settlements, etc.
The pace of the narrative is kept steady, but, unfortunately, there are some shortcomings. First of all, a little frustrating backtracking in the middle of the game. Having opened almost the entire map, in the middle we have taken the opportunity to move to open areas. There is a couple of new locations with new monsters, but, unfortunately, the fact of backtracking does not cancel them. The ending is also a little frustrating, but rather its speed.
