5.0 out of 5 stars The most in-depth RPG experience in existence 10 Aug. 2004
By DSitcom
This is quite easily my favourite game of all time, but for reasons that no-one else seems to mention, and that is atmosphere. The general feeling you get when you really start to get into this legendary story and start your quest for the 108 stars, occurs when you look past the graphics and appreciate the absolutely exceptional soundtrack, ingenious battle system, complicated yet rewarding methods of getting certain characters to join your entourage, and the all-too-rare grand scale battles, which are admittedly better handled in Suikoden II. There's a muted beauty to the rugged locations, and building your bustling castle from a ruin is a true joy. The story couldn't be better, and although isn't told as majestically as Final Fantasy, it feels as if it encompasses the whole game world, rather than your own group. This game is expensive, short and ultimately too easy, but it's a must before playing the well-rounded sequel, and the replay value is massive due to the collectable character motif. Another good reason to play this game before the sequel, is because you can tranfer your completed game data from this game onto the start of Suikoden II, starting it with the same items - a bit of a novelty, but it breaks you into the game nicely. I haven't played Suikoden III yet, but i'm due to get hold of it shortly, and i reckon everyone else should too, even if it means buying an American PS2 as it never got a PAL release, and Suikoden IV is looking ace too. Just don't bother tracking down the Japanese-only Suikogaiden titles (they're little more than interactive movies).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best psone rpgs there is 8 May 2005
By Louise
Don't be put off by the price for this game, it is truly amazing. When I first played Suikoden, it was my friends copy that I'd borrowed. I didnt want to give it back ever and had to get my own copy no matter what the cost. If you like final fantasy(the earlier games anyway) you'll love this game, its even better. The storyline is captivating, and can move to tears in places. The graphics are old school, which I'll admit, put me off when my friend begged me to play it because she loved it. The graphics are better than ff1-6. The main character you control is bigger so your less likely to lose track of them on the screen :p. The views are really stunning in places, and the soundtrack, although not vocal, remains one of my favourites. The battle system is turn based. You set up your character to attack, defend, or use rune magic( also pretty ^^). It employs tactics as if you have no equipment, your bound to lose eventually, and you can use items to heal in battle. With 108 collectable characters theres bound to be a favourite for everyone, boys and girls alike. There are also 2 different endings to this game, depending on if you get all 108 characters or not. Most reviewers put this game down as nowadays a lot of games are shoot em up/beat em up or racing and they tend to favour these. Its a pity there arnt more games like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Konami have made me proud!!! 8 Mar. 2004
This game from Konami is absolutely amazing. With over 108 playable characters to have in your team and over 42 magical runes there isn't anything this RPG doesn't have. The ability to customize your own castle makes it much better. With a deep story-line and a war going on there is just amazing. The graphics are not as brilliant as something like Final Fantasy but the cartoony side of it makes the gameplay very good. The ability to have six players in your team makes the fighting fast paced and the bosses are hard aswell. With the story itself being extremely huge and to try and get all the 108+ charactersthere is plenty to do. An easy 5 stars!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treasure for RPG fans 15 July 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first got this game when I was 14. I'm 26 now and its still one of my all time favourites. Despite its dated visuals, it is still an awesome adventure with a rich storyline that focuses on war and a corrupt government rather than than the fantasy aspect, but there is still plenty of magic and monsters to keep RPG geeks happy.
The dialogue is quite cliched, but the soundtrack is extremely dramatic and helps bring the story to life.

You play as a young man who is the son of a great Imperial general, and while your father goes off to war, you and your companions set off to run errands to serve the Empire. During these minor tasks, you witness sinister plots and intrigues which inevitably lead your characters to question their own loyalty to the Empire. Thus you end up becoming the leader of the rebellion and it becomes your quest to establish a HQ and gather powerful allies to aid you in liberating the country. At the heart of this story is a struggle of magical powers as you come into possession of a rune with devastating power which, despite it being the cause of many tragedies that occur in the main character's life, you must protect from falling into the wrong hands.

As with all Suikoden titles, there are three types of combat sequences - the most frequent being group battles which occur randomly as you explore the game's vast world and environments. You can your party up with differnet members of your ever expanding army of warriors, knights, sorcerers and martial artists. Some characters are able to perform united attacks together to cause greater damage against enemies, and characters may defend wounded allies if they become critically wounded.
