Product Description

Product Description

With over a half million copies sold leading up to this most recent chapter, the hero of the story obtains the Rune of Punishment and follows his path as the Tenkai Star in an oceanic adventure in the Suikoden world. With courage and determination, the 108 Stars of Destiny journey through this world filled with majestic ships, perilous islands, and vast oceans.

Manufacturer's Description

A sprawling role-playing game, Suikoden IV marks a huge step forward for the series, with a fantastic 3D play area populated by an incredible 100+ heroes and villains.

The release of Suikoden IV marks the award-winning series' PlayStation 2 debut in Europe. Konami has pulled out all the stops to produce an absorbing role-playing title wherein the player guides a party of heroes through a number of missions, facing an increasing danger as they explore

The plot of Suikoden IV is secret, but fans will be excited to know that members of the original Suikoden team have worked on the fourth game's story and character designs. Suikoden's famous '108 Stars of Destiny' a legion of warriors that can be recruited to join the player's cause are also set to make their return

Gameplay is massively reworked, with the familiar 2D views of the original games replaced by vast and rich 3D environments. Suikoden IV benefits from the series' most advanced combat system to date with the team pooling their spell-casting and weapon-based skills to counter larger foes, while a myriad of combination attacks are possible.

This will also be the first time that players can take to the high seas, as they traverse the game world to distant shores

3.0 out of 5 stars Highly underrated, but still far from perfect. 18 May 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm by no means a long time Suikoden fan. I confess, my 1st Suikoden was in fact number 5, which wowed me so much that I felt compelled to play the other games in the series. So imagine my surprise when I found out that Suikoden IV was considered by many to be the worst game in the series. Not deterred by the horror stories posted on various websites, I persisted in acquiring a copy.

Let us say, I was pleasantly surprised, if not in awe of it's brilliance. It didn't take long to find out that this game has some rather serious flaws. First things first, there is little to no character development for 90% of the extended cast, a fault which hurts the game's somewhat cliche'd plot. The second, (and by far most irritating,) flaw is the random encounter rate. For example, at several points during the game, you will need to sail from one island to another and at worst, you will be in an encounter every two seconds. And that brings us to another feature of the game which turns out to be flawed. The game is set in an chain of island nations, which are funnily enough called 'The Island Nations.' This is an interesting concept, but the trouble is that the ship you sail around in for the majority of the game feels bigger than any of these islands. At best, you'll find 5 small areas and a dungeon on the biggest island.

But enough of the bad, what about the good? Well, Suikoden IV does one thing that Suikoden V could not do, and that is it propels you straight into the actual game pretty much immediately. As with the other games in the series, combat is divided into 3 types; Party Battles, Duels and Full Scale Battles. Party Battles are the sort you get in any RPG and although the combat is far simpler than any other game in the series, it is still enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Addition to the Suikoden Series 1 Mar 2005
I know it's only March, but this is my game of the year and unless FFXII appears anytime soon it's likely to stay that way. I bought this on Friday and almost forgot to go to work today. It's totally absorbing and easy to get right into. It doesn't quite capture the magic of Suikoden 1 & 2 (not seen 3) but it's close and does have a magic all its' own.
Instead of a castle, you gather your 108 stars of destiny aboard a large ship and major battles take place at sea. Get close enough to the enemy ships and you can board them and beat the living daylights out of the attacking forces.
There's tons of minigames to play alongside the main story and fishing too. Enemies drop materials such as shells and skin (bleurgh!) which you can have made into armour.
Yes, the random battles could be renamed "constant" battles as you can hardly move 3 feet without being attacked but most battles are easily escape-able and they are a quick way to level up and make money money money! You can also control up to 3 parties aboard ship which makes buying and equipping new armour easy and is heavenly when you are being mashed to bits in certain battles and all your rune magic is used up.
There's a welcome return to old favourite characters such as Leknaat and the transporting Viki and tons of new faces to recruit.
The music and voices are great and the graphics do the PS2 proud.
If you are a RPG or Suikoden fan, you must make this a part of your collection. It really is fab and worth every penny (potch?!)

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly thought out 8 May 2006
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok. So, two stars? Let me explain.

To start off with, I haven't been in with the Suikoden series from the earlier games, so this was the first one I approached. I played a little up to gaining your HQ and setting out on your first real quest as an exile and promptly turned the game off.

I was, to put it bluntly, majorly disappointed with a much raved about series. However, to give a series a chance, I jumped back to earlier games and gave Suikoden 2 a whirl. Lets just say that I was impressed with the in depth storyline, believable (and lovable) characters and a fast paced but simple to get to grips with battle system. The developers really went out on a limb and made good work of a small RPG with so many characters to seek out and recruit.

So Suikoden 4?

Poor graphics for it's era...I mean come on. The character textures are lackluster and bland, landscapes induce a slight amount of awe for a while but leave you wanting a little more and for a modern console, the overworld was DIRE!

Characters and their impact. Characters? All I saw running around on screen were a bunch of moronically clad children with about as much individuality as manufactured candy snack. There is no development between the on-screen stars, the two best friends (obviously Konami reviving the Hero-Jowy escapade) have about as much in common as dynamite with a match. Considering they have their special "buddy bond" attack, the amount of trust and sacrifice they give to each other is, to put it bluntly, pitiful. The Hero is a big, starry eyed fool who runs as though he's suffered from some sort of groin strain his entire life and Snowe (the 'bessie mate') has the bravado and IQ of a banana split (I give odds on the dessert).
