The Suikoden Series had me hooked from Suikoden I! There's just so much
packed into these games, whether it be Character Recruitment, Rune spell
casting, sea battles, land battles (or both) and building an empire. Although
I missed Suikoden III (Gameplanet get some copies in!!!!).
Suikoden is DEFINITELY back on track after Suikoden IV (need
I say more).
I've been playing Suikoden V for 14 hours now and I've hardly scratched the
surface so there's a lot more to come I'm sure! The amount of vocal dialogue in
this game is awesome, and most of the time the introduction of a new character
comes with a cut scense so you get to see the real personality of each
character. The storyline is rich and you really don't know which direction
you'll end up heading. The difficulty has also kicked up a notch too especially
the sea and land battles which makes the game more challenging.
You can also have a whopping 6 Characters in your active party and take
about another 5 extra with you on missions to swap in and out when needed.
That's great! It's definitely worth finding those elusive characters to
A highly reccommended game!
