I've moved on to Ys Origin, and its so good so far. The combat just feels great, I don't know how else to describe it. It might even be smoother than Oath in Felghana, although that might not be fair to say since its been a few months since I've last played it, and even then I was stuck using a keyboard. I've also only played as Yunica thus far, so I don't know how well the other characters play. The bosses I've fought so far have also been fairly intuitive, which is pretty nice, and it seems less grindy than previous Ys games.
I also like the way the story is laid out, and it's neat seeing all of the callbacks to Ys I and II (And maybe beyond, since it seems one of the characters is named Kishgal...). It seems like the destiny of the Gemma family is to get a leg injury in Darm Tower, wait around to be rescued in a hidden room, and then give someone an item that they need to proceed. What a strange fate...
Only issues I have are some pretty noticeable frame rate drops when dealing with several enemies at once (although that's my computer's fault, not the game's), and the fact that there was an underwater level complete with spikes and instant death oxygen metre (which was thankfully not too bad and over pretty quickly).
