Ys III: The Oath in Felghana Part 1

A remake of Wanderers from Ys, which was the Zelda 2 of the franchise in that it reworked the puzzle-driven action RPG gameplay of its predecessors into a sidescrolling platformer game that nobody liked.

Oath in Felghana, while following the same general storyline as Wanderers from Ys, rebuilds the entire game in the engine from Ys VI.  I'm playing the PC version here (downloaded via Steam), but the PSP version adds in some extra features like voiceover for most of the plot scenes and some exclusive gameplay enhancements, including a New Game Plus mode and a Double Boost Mode that further bolsters the player's stats and gives them limited health regeneration (though you must fill the boost gauge twice to use it).
