The only "issue" with the PS4 version was the translation, which for the most part was actually fine because it was intentional, see this:

The couple mistranslated item descriptions were definitely "bug" territory though.

Really, because a game was delayed a couple times, you knew it was going to be a flop? Blizzard would like a word with you...

Terrible port. Dark Souls was better port than this.

NIS America is one of the most incompetent publishers I've ever seen. As a huge fan of NIS Japan's games, they really need to fire literally everyone working there and recreate it from scratch.

I played it on PS4 Pro. The PC version runs better, but I'm also playing in 1920x1080 while the Pro was locked to 4k. Only played long enough to see how bad the port was, given the reception it's received already. It has some hitching and the mouse control isn't great (I use a gamepad for these sorts anyway, only did M&K briefly to test), but it's insane that this has "Mostly Negative" on Steam when it's otherwise better than the PS4 Pro version as far as performance goes.

Wrong. Dark Souls was locked to an internal resolution of 1024x720 and 30fps capped. This lets you do 1920x1080 and it still looks like 1080p, and is 60fps capped with Vsync. Turning Vsync off and letting it cap to my global preset of 75fps had some stutter, so they probably only tested it for 60fps.

Again, it's better than the PS4 Pro version, and I could see a patch ironing out most of the hitching issues, which are extremely minor, far less than what Ion Maiden had when I played through the preview campaign pre-first technical fix patch, which was still playable, not saying they don't need to fix these things, just saying the response is like this is utterly broken and again it's better than the PS4 Pro version.

People blowing things out of proportion, maybe because the game came out on a Monday and most people aren't in good moods on Mondays.

That said, the game isn't the best Ys game (Oath still holds that seat) and a lot of it feels like they're trying to change the formula by borrowing from other games. https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps4/836707-ys-viii-lacrimosa-of-dana/reviews/165703
